Bombs fall down
Raymond Unwin - you don’t choose to live in a bloody new town
It’s not your fault - you’re good, good guys
The car centric layout was their soul’s demise

The Shredded Wheat Tower, in Welwyn Garden town
Not so much a city, but not really bad at times…
Glenrothes got it right with their new art
Milton Keynes’ concrete cows have charm…

Derek Walker thought that telecoms
Had outmoded the need for non-grid systems
A lazy grid, to keep it real
With cloned roundabouts and a Prisoner feel

It’s actually green and good for cycling…
A pagoda, windmill and also lots of muggings
Swindon on the other hand seems quite glamorous…
I’d die if I lived there myself, but I love trains and Mr. Partridge

“Let no building be higher than the tallest tree”
Nah, that’s not for me
