Nightwatch rises

The Ladywell Village Improvement Group has provided an update on progress to refurbish the sinister Nightwatch shop on Ladywell Road. The new unit will be smaller than before (to provide more residential space), but at least it won't continue to brood on the high street, radiating pure evil. They say:

After a long-running campaign by LVIG, No 46 Ladywell Road - better known as Nightwatch - is finally being refurbished. The shop unit and flat, long an eyesore on the high street after it was abandoned to foxes and pigeons by its previous owners for more than 15 years, is being converted into a shop unit and two small flats. The work, which started a few weeks ago, is expected to be completed by the New Year.
