It's not been a particular nice day today, it's grey cold and drizzly. Last weekend I was sat outside enjoying the sun.
I popped into Saffron Walden this morning. Walden is a nice old market town, however the 21st century is intruding. There were leaflets protesting a new out of town Sainsbury's (which is bigger than the out of town Tesco and in town Waitrose combined) and the proposed 50% increase in the Tesco. The leaflet said this would ecimate the centre. I sympathise with this as I like towns like Walden with its mix of speciality shops, antique shops and its old fashioned department store. Of course I am being a bit hypocritical as I like the convenience of a big supermarket.
I think though Walden is losing its battle, its excellent bookshop closed 2 years ago. Still I wish it well.
The church is an imposing site.
