GWR pattern store and rail over bridge
The road used to cross the GWR on a level crossing but hasn't done so for very many years. The buildings on the right are part of the designer outlet. Dreadful I know but it means that a part of the complex has been retained.

The imposing building on the right behind the advertising board was once, I believe, occupied by a prominent veterinary surgeon. Then it became the offices of a car dealership. The dealership vacated the site some years ago and re-located. Since then the building has been left unoccupied.

Marlborough Road was and remains one of the main routes to and from the town. However its character here has changed over the last ten to fifteen years. At the left is fairly new housing, Mill Court. Beyond that the building with the mansard roof is Ashlar Court. Both developments cater, I think, mainly for retired people. Before this development occurred there was a large car dealership here called Greens who held the Chrysler franchise for a while. The cottages on the right are relatively old, early 19th century. They are within the Old Town conservation area and are listed <a title='http://www.imagesofengland.org.uk/details/default.aspx?id=318785' rel='nofollow' href='http://www.imagesofengland.org.uk/details/default.aspx?id=318785'>Link</a><img style='padding-left:2px;' alt='External link' title='External link - shift click to open in new window' src='http://s0.geograph.org.uk/img/external.png' width='10' height='10'/>
