Magnificent Buildings


Wakefield, like most towns, has lots of grand buildings hidden away behind commerce frontage or intermingled with modern functional structures. Monarch House and Dr Crowther Almhouse's are two buildings opposite a huge supermarket car park entrance. Wakefield obviously needs huge supermarkets and car parking facilities but it also needs these buildings from another era to remind us that things can look different and can look grand. I spent 20 minutes under what might have been Sycamore trees making notes and sketches and taking photos, the season is changing.
