Bournemouth: alongside the new West Central complex
Bournemouth: alongside the new West Central complex
Looking along the northern section of Exeter Crescent, which encircled the NCP car park formerly on the site to our left - originally it was the town's bus station which burnt down in the mid 1970s. This half of Exeter Crescent has been cut off to motor vehicles at least since the pedestrianisation of The Square in 1992.

In the last couple of years, the new West Central cinema and restaurant complex has been erected on the old car park site - construction 18 months ago can be seen here: SZ0891 : Bournemouth: West Central complex under construction.

It now more than resembles a building for the purpose it will have - the tall, plain side of a cinema complex with, in the background, terraces and balconies which will belong to the various eateries.

In the distance is the former St. Andrew's Church, which has been redundant for many years as a place of worship but which has continued to receive nighttime congregations in various uses as restaurant or nightclub. See SZ0891 : Bournemouth: Exeter Road approaches The Square for a better view of the church.
