There is Victorian terrace on the way into town. They all have tiny front gardens. A few houses have massive monkey puzzle trees planted outside their bay windows, some are nearly as tall as the rooftops, blocking out all light l imagine. They are a beautiful shape though, there is a wonderful MP tree lined long driveway approaching Bicton College not far from us, they look majestic. A chap in a large detached house up the hill from me, had two beautiful Cedar trees he called them "the sisters" on his land. When he sadly passed the house was sold and the new owner had them cut down. I must admit l cried at the loss of those trees, they made a beautiful skyline. He then built a bungalow where the trees had been, sold up and cleared off.
