This is the BW building which stands on the junction of the Grand Union and Aylesbury Canals.
The first image shows the boaters facilities in the foreground, water and elsan, with bins nearby.
There is a ramshackle disused cement works on the site which can be seen in the background.
The second image shows the rear view of BW's offices etc. which all look very well maintained.
The third image shows the main building which is a nice substantial stone building with the preserved crane to the right.
There is a planning application for this site for 14 new dwellings and the repositioning of the crane.
Sadly the proposed groundplan does NOT include any of the existing buildings, or the facilities for boaters.
Can we allow this to happen?
