Here is the beautiful view of the Almshouses gardens, seen through the entrance by visitors and everyone passing on the road to Melksham. The superb tree in the foreground will be removed to make way for the new building.
On the right is an approximate outline impression of the proposed building from the same angle as above. The tree shown in the picture above has gone and the mature pale green Tulip tree in the centre is not expected to survive.
The artist’s impression from the same position on the front page of the planning application is considered sadly misleading.
