The changing face of Stafford
The changing face of Stafford
Looking into the town centre across the car park of the former Riverside Sports Centre. The old town's South Wall ran along the line of rubble that until recently was a terrace of houses. To the left are the Magistrate's Courts, next to the Police Station. The old house is a former pub, now offices known as Oriel House, and the tower block to the right is the Telecoms building.
This townscape will not last for long - planning consent has been granted to the County Council for a huge office complex which will fill the skyline behind the Courts and there are also plans for an apartment complex on the former Riverside site.
