Old pictures and memories of Newbury
Newbury - The open space between Cheap Street and Bartholomew Street circa 1978

Here is a photograph to bring back memories. This was the open space created when a large part of the Cheap Street, Market Street, Bartholomew Street triangle was demolished and before the final phase of the Kennet Shopping Centre was started.
This is the space currently occupied by the northern half of the Kennet Shopping Centre which runs  through from Corals in Cheap Street to Caffè Nero  and Cargo in Bartholomew Street.
The area was properly landscaped and became a popular spot during the summer months where you could relax and enjoy your lunchtime sandwiches, right in the heart of Newbury Town Centre.
Our records indicate that this photograph was taken during October 1978
