ANGUS Huck makes references to the church in his letter (Gazette, September 5) about Dickens Yard and its fate.
I would refer him to a photograph of Haven Green circa 1880, which I stud-ied the other day. It portrays the as-then G.W.R. Station in the distance, and just above and behind it the glorious spire of the Methodist church.
Fast forward to today and most of you fortunate to have sunbathed on the Haven Green grass during our requisite two days of summer this year will not have seen this, due to the subsequent development above Ealing Broadway station, as it is now known, since that picture was taken.
Why is this relevant? Well the Dickens Yard site that Mr Huck speaks of could be the vicinity that a major building or 'Leaf'tower is built on in the future, residents permitting or not, and could reaffirm the big-is-beautiful debate I alluded to earlier.
We have seen the architects that Mr Huck mentioned show us their excellence - the Hanwell viaduct to name one instance. Why not allow them to metaphorically design another tiara for our queen of the suburbs?
