Life in Culebrón is a very British view of life in a small village in Alicante province, my experience of Spain, of Spaniards and sometimes of the other Britons who live nearby. The tabs beneath the header photo link to other blogs written whilst I was living in other parts of Spain, to my articles written for the now defunct TIM magazine and to my most recent photo albums.

Knocking it all down

Pinoso, our local "Town Hall" town isn't exactly picturesque. It has some nice buildings in amongst the new concrete blocks but, in general, it is architecturally bland. That some charge could be levelled against the majority of towns in Alicante province with very few exceptions.

Nonetheless, they seem to be keen to demolish almost anything that remains of the old Pinoso.

When I went to get my newspaper the other morning half of the car park was closed off as they were knocking down a couple more buildings. It happens all the time. The new building that goes in its place will be better built with better facilities but there seems to be no concept of hanging on to the best of what remains or building new stuff that fits in with the old.

Almost as impressive as the changes to the County Council buildings in Huntingdon town centre. Walden House is no more.
