    A notice has been put up to demolish 33 and partly demolish 34 Goalgate street. Don't know where this leaves Rymans who currently occupy 34, to turn it into residential units :(

    33 was HSamuels
    34 is Rymans

    I've just read through the design state ment in the planning documents and it makes it clear rymans is unaffected by this development, and the are basically building to the left and above it.

    So is it old buildings demolished to allow something more in keeping with Santander on the corner of Market Square ?

    More in keeping with the Rymans building next to it, and it looks like, judging to the plan there would still be a shop where H Samuels was.

    I wouldn't be against the H M Samuel being demolished. It's not a pretty building or in keeping the Rymans building next door. It will also improve the appearance of the building/ site to the rear.

    I'm also in favour of more residential within the town centre.

    I hope this application gets approved.

    It's kind of sad though, H. M. Samuel has been there a long time. And I am well aware things have to move on, that's the way of the world. !! But nostalgia, for all its faults, really isn't that bad a thing. Sometimes you have to wonder if destruction actually works. :|

    No.
    I understand that the Council had a policy of NOT having pubs in the main street ( Gaolgate Street, Greengate Street ) and that explains why when I moved here in 1973 there was only the Swan ( more a hotel ) and the Bear.

    It was the Three Tuns in the real good old days, I believe.

    Wonder how long it'll be before m&s joins the destruction? Apparently all the fridges are still in there inside, as they were built into the building.
