Trowbridge - a missed opportunity? Melksham - into the breach?

Biss Aquaduct, Photoshopped to remove pipeTrowbridge is the county town of Wiltshire, and it a long and illustrious history, some magnificent Georgian buildings, the River Biss and a canal which brings tourists through the area already.


Biss AquaductHowever, I've had to ask Lisa (who is a professional graphic artist) to 'Photoshop' my headline picture because - try as I might - I couldn't get a picture of the Biss Aquaduct without this ugly (IMHO) pipe in the foreground that was blocking the view.


I understand from a Wiltshire Time article that the developers of the Waterside Complex in Trowbridge have gone into administration, and there's considerable doubt now with regards to that "Transforming Trowbridge" project - something of a shame as there are parts of the town where such a transformation is desperately needed!

Interestingly, there *is* a market / place for an entertainment area / complex in West Wiltshire, and there was a suggestion made the other week that the area between Bowerhill and the A350 Semington bypass would be a sensible place for it - as indeed it would. Good access / the ability to provide plenty of parking (rather that being hemmed in within a town), and facilities to serve Chippenham and Trowbridge as well as Melksham - a catchment of around 80,000 people within a few miles. Ah - I'm probably doing no more that flying a kite here ...
