Christmas Day, 2007 at Berwick, Oxclose, Washington
Christmas Day, 2007 at Berwick, Oxclose, Washington
This Close was built about 1980 as part of the continuing programme of expansion of Washington New Town. Originally all the districts of the New Town were, with stunning lack of originality or imagination, identified by number; this area being District Number 3. Recently, the Council has relented and re-labelled them with user-friendly names, this being Oxclose. Naming of streets in the new housing estates must also severely tax the imagination of planners. All the streets in this estate are simply known by placenames in Northumberland, this being simply "Berwick", not Close, nor Road, nor Avenue but just that - "Berwick". No fairy lights in the trees or giant Santa Claus affixed to the outside walls; nevertheless this is indeed taken on Christmas Day.
