Arches and cloisters are in red brick in the old school, San Clemente in Mayfield. Additions to the building are beginning to take shape. I hope it will be a fine addition.
In heritage matters, we seem to aspire to an overall scheme in a development, a holistic approach, a unifying theme.
Any one feature cannot be inappropriately singled out in a group of buildings. In the city, it is not good enough to attempt development without cooperation between the owners when several are involved on a site.
The stakeholders have responsibility for the care of a site whilst it is transition and they could assume that responsibility without any ifs or buts. Why settle for neglect of the heritage?
