It all looks very civilised these days
Brian Walbey: Indeed no sign of anything but leisure boats and activities.
This is such an interesting looking place with your POV right behind the lock.
Brian Walbey: I suspect those apartments cost a lot to buy or rent, it is a nise development. Behind me are a couple more locks.

I believe there are many pleases clild "Newport" so it was good that the name was changed to something else. Is the residential block a new build or was its conversion? I'm thinking the former.
Brian Walbey: Indeed there seems to be newports all over the place. It has the appearance of a newbuild but the style of an old warehouse building.
Ah the ubiquitous waterside development
Brian Walbey: It has the appearance of a newbuild but the style of an old warehouse building, I'm assuming it was the former.

Is that a modern development, or a conversion, Brian?
Brian Walbey: It has the appearance of a newbuild but the style of an old warehouse building, I'm assuming it was the former.
Is that a commercial building that has been turned into flats?
