Change comes to Ghyll Brow. So it’s time to gather flowers from my photographic archive for a floral tribute, a pastoral elegy. Large-scale housing development in Kendal begins here and now on either side of the Ghyll, starting 2015. Kendal South West: south of Underbarrow Road and Stainbank Green. Pastoral will be a memory. The charm and rural character of Ghyll Brow will be lost to urban encroachment. Disruption is inevitable. The flora of the roadside verge is delightful and I wonder what will survive. Wondering won’t help, there needs something more practical
