Brutal bus shelter

Pattingham bus shelter

Sometimes, it's hard to believe what you see.  This bus shelter in the centre of the otherwise pretty village of Pattingham has absolutely nothing to recommend it.
It lacks any sense of creativity, it is brutal, it is boring.  Quite simply: it was built with no love at all.

We laugh at the Victorians, who probably would have put Gothic curlicues on it, or even the pre-war authorities who would have had it resemble a pastoral cowshed - but at least they wanted public spaces to sustain our need for self-respect in places where we live.
C'mon Pattingham!  At least paint it.
