Supporting Rochelle Court

This is certainly an unusual view of things – a photo which dates from 1993.

It shows the building of a retaining wall and improvements to the footpath below Rochelle Court – alongside Northbrook.

Memories fade. Even long term Northbrook residents have forgotten this happening some 22 years ago.

At the top of the hill and on the right hand side of this photo is the old Market House which, of course, still stands having been renovated in the last few years. The house on the extreme left – we just see a corner of it – is still in place as well. So, too are the metal pipe railings on the rather grey coloured concrete wall. The present view (actually in 2011) looks like this.
