taken January 2013…
Many of the pictures in this gallery were taken on the Longstanton golf course in January 2013. The course closed down in June 2013. A year later earthworks began in preparation for building the first phase of the new town of Northstowe.
The pictures now portray scenes of a Longstanton recently past. The trees that lined the fairways are all gone and most of the site is now a hole in the ground. What must be must be, but I cannot escape a sense of sadness at what has been lost.
