Priory Square is getting a Facelift - Argos Extra

I returned to Priory Square as the other day, I noticed that workmen were painting Priory Square and giving it Facelift.

 

If they are giving it a facelift, it doesn't seem like the Martineau Galleries thing is happening any time soon.

 

Had to move close to not get the lampposts in the way of this Argos Extra sign. Argos is the last major retailer to still be in Priory Square (the rest are small indepenant shops).

 

Originally this was the Corporation Street shopping precinct, by Frederick Gibberd dating from 1963 - 66. The architect was Gerald Goalen.

 

It is made of Portland stone

 

As of May 2010 - I think it has been re-named The Square. It has been painted black and white.
