I notice that the gift-wrapping (scaffolding) is finally being removed from the Pantworks building in St Nicholas Lane.
At the southern end of the building there is a concrete shield shape stuck to the wall - on closer inspection it appears to be a huge "contemporary" bat box to match the huge "contemporary" building that it is adhered to.
