Work was started in 2005 with the demolition of the Broadway Shopping Centre, an archaelogical dig of the area and the site was excavated and prepared for the start of the new development. Unfortunately the work came to a halt overnight with the beginnings of a national recession.
The site was left as a huge HOLE for a few years before the Council developed some of the site into an Urban Garden.

I do like the Urban Garden as it has created a space in the City Centre which allows some of the older more ornate buildings to be seen which have been hidden away by large buildings for many years.
