DESIGN IN CONTEXT
Norwich - Prince of Wales Road
Pedestrian guardrails have been used extensively since the 1940s, as part of the ongoing attempt to reduce conflict between pedestrians and vehicles in town centres. It has been especially favoured on the approaches to pedestrian crossings, and on signal controlled junctions where the pedestrian desire line was different to the safe controlled route. This segregation of pedestrians has resulted in higher vehicle speeds in some town and city centres, as drivers perceive a reduced risk of conflict with pedestrians, and feel more secure in their environment. However the barriers can be extremely unsightly in sensitive environments and can seriously disfigure and clutter the view of historic streets especially. In addition, they can do as much to trap pedestrians on the carriageway as to deter them from crossing.
DESIGN IN CONTEXT; MANAGEMENT PLANS
Blakeney Chapel SAM, North Norfolk
Full recording of Blakeney Chapel Scheduled Ancient Monument and surrounding areas was achieved in advance of the site’s inevitable destruction by coastal change. The archaeological mitigation strategy, undertaken in response to a coastal realignment plan, represents a successful collaboration between English Heritage, Norfolk Landscape Archaeology, the National Trust, the consultants Halcrow, and the Environment Agency. Research has provided new evidence and interpretation of the site and the ground-plan of the building will remain visible to the public for its residual life.

Abbey Farm Barn, Thetford
Precise tree-ring dating demonstrated that the timberwork in these barns at Thetford is pre-Dissolution in date, and so the surviving fabric directly relates to the adjoining Priory ruins.
