Respect heritage

By e-mail

I have lived long enough in Todmorden to give my opinion about the demolition of those two beautiful old buildings for another supermarket.

We have already three. With today’s inflation and high prices it will not stay open for a very long time. And the building will haunt Tod for a very long time or go the same way as the clinic near the market.

Surely they are a history of the town and nothing should replace it. Without history we are nobody.

The idea is barbaric. We have already plenty of new, but we should respect the old.
