Billingham Town Square by Teessider Forever

Some pictures of Billingham Town Square taken on 24th December 2010 using my iPhone.  It's so sad to see how run down it is now.  It used to be quite a vibrant place.  I suppose you could even call it a bit of a cultural centre in its day, with a theatre (in the forum) an art gallery, a library and even a bandstand.   As is probably a theme across the country, most of the shops are now closed, charity shops, or discound retailers.  Those tasked with taking care of our built environment should be ashamed of themselves.
