Some of the buildings are still standing.........England was so beautiful...now a lot of it all built up with three storey slums of tomorrow.......

Yes I totally agree with you. My area, once a tiny farming village is now built up too much. And a developer got hold of some land the villagers did not want building on. But the council could only see Ģsd in front of their eyes - well they had lost millions of our council tax in bad investments!!!

In our area, developers buy a large house, demolish it and build several small houses on land...SAD.....Our only playing field undeveloped was left to the people of Wilford.....wonder how long before the council find a loophole.....

Yes they are now allowed to do that all over the country - even buying up back gardens to build on. And deliberately burning down, or 'accidentally' knocking down listed buildings! And they are not developers from this country ususally. But I guess we did the same in other countries.

(Hmmm.....1800?
Thatīs a bit strange, though, seeing as the first photograph wasnīt invented until around 1826) ;-D
