Underneath the Arches

Well we have a stretch of historic railway arches going through our estate. Part of the first urban passenger railway in the world and, when it was built in 1836, the most massive brick structure on the planet.

Now wouldnt it be lovely if we could celebrate this fact AND make the estate a safer and more attractive place?

So why not follow the lead of this example from Bankside?

A low cost, easy maintenance LED lighting installation:

Perhaps a good solution to concerns about security along the arches. making that area of the estate a lot less threatening as well as much more attractive. And a way to celebrate a great piece of our local history.

Perhaps this suggestion could be made to the architects trying to push a foot/cycle path through the estate?
