Cock Robin, Cavendish Square, Park South, Swindon
Park South is a large municipal housing estate that was built in the late 1950s and early 1960s. A feature of the estate is a medium-sized centre comprising shops, flats, a library and a pub. The architects who designed it won some sort of award although, in practice, it turned out to be a rather grim place, particularly at night. It is now in the process of being comprehensively improved. The Cock Robin pub was a real dive and its passing will cause little sadness. The pub and the building next to it are I think due to be demolished.
