I AM hoping that the Saxongate building on the corner of Hartford Road and Huntingdon High Street will grow on me. This dominant building seems to have totally changed the character of that part of the High Street. It does not fit in with the adjacent buildings and totally obscures the view of St Mary's Church. Am I alone in thinking that this is not a case of new and old blending nicely with each other? Let's hope further development in our town takes more account of the town's traditional buildings by adding to their historical charm.
