The Changing Face of Newtownards.
The new Ring Road being built to help ease the traffic in Newtownards. It comes in from the Belfast Road through the back of the Scrabo Estate (above) ...
... continues on to the Comber Road at the old Crepe Weavers site (above) ...
... then across the Comber Road and on over the Air Drome coming out at the Portaferry Road (above).
The new appartment block (The Newtown Building) going up in Francis Street beside Francis Street Gospel Hall. This building dominates the whole area and this is the view from my bedroom window!
'Old Market Square'
This was once the cattle market in the town and then became a carpark. It is in West Street and just opposite the Queen's Hall.
The corner of Conway Square and High Street demolished and a new build for shops and appartments going up.
