Bedfordshire building standards

I thought I should report on the building standards here in Bedfordshire.

When it comes to bricks and mortar, opinion is divided. The rest of the world agrees that they are vital, Bedfordshire begs to differ.

Re: Bedfordshire building standards

They are good with free standing columns, though it is questionable what function they serve..




And staircases with no handrails don't pass building standards in the UK..

Furthermore, this outdoor cinema has uncomfortable seats and no screen. What were they thinking of?

The free standing columns are a photographer trap.

Re: Bedfordshire building standards

I'm told you need to be discreet as a foreign correspondent, so here is an orthodox church which I managed to catch in a reflection.

No one saw me.
