Kingswood. Bristol BS15

It began as a trip to explore Staple Hill in East Bristol with Richard Ford, but the beauty of a minimal plan is that change is simple. The result was two separate evening visits, a week apart, to Kingswood, technically South Gloucestershire but very much a suburb of Bristol.

King Chase Shopping Centre

The Kings Chase Shopping Centre, built in the 1970s, is the focal point of Kingswood town centre and is currently the subject of a proposed redevelopment. The multi-story car park (pictured below) certainly looks like it has seen better days. According the the public exhibition document it scores a massive 86% on the eyesore-rating scale! Though I feel their question may have been a tad leading.
