Changes in Town - General thread

I noticed that recently Smith’s Butchers have closed their shop and moved to larger premises at 1 Market Street, sharing the site with’The Oven Door’ bakery. For once, it is nice to see expansion of an existing business.

This unfortunately leaves a row of 5 empty properties on Market Street:

The horrid brick block of ‘Store Twenty One’, Johnstons Dry Cleaner, CLIC Sargent, Smith’s Butchers and Sailor’s Society.

Finally, a quick plug for my photography around Eastleigh as I am interested in the way our surroundings change throughout the years. Any tip offs about any new happenings - demolitions/building/changes to road layouts/etc always gratefully recieved!
