New traffic island

A new traffic island has been established to replace the grass bank at the junction of Farthing Street and New Road Hill. The island is to protect the heritage lamp-post. It would make a very attractive entrance to the village if it were planted with bulbs for the spring.

This is how it looks now!  The first photo was taken on 26th August and the one below was taken 6th September. This looks far too suburban for the entrance to Downe Village.

  1. Farthing Street residents are waiting for the Council to restore the grass so that they can continue with their plan to plant daffodils on the ‘island’.
