Walsall Waterfront Leisure Development
Work on site at the new Waterfront leisure scheme in Walsall has been on the go now for six months. Developer Kier Property has appointed contractor GF Tomlinson for the project, which includes the new eight-screen cinema designed by Burrows Little for ‘The Light’ and four new restaurants operated by Chiquito, Pizza Express, Bella Italia and Hungry Horse.

Phase one will provide +/- 5,000sq ft of retail and leisure space and phase two will provide a further 14,000sq ft.The £65m Waterfront development has been a resounding success so far, regenerating over 17 acres in Walsall, and the cinema alone will create approximately 230 jobs.

Phil Dove of The Light Cinema commented: “This fantastic project marks the start of an exciting development programme for all of us.” Ian Little, Director of Burrows Little said, "The Light Cinema format is very exciting because of the introduction of the extra large format screens and the new ultra comfort seating designed for luxury viewing. With 1200 seats spread across 8 screens. the Walsall public will have plenty of choice of of films, viewing styles and luxury." Councillor Mohammad Nazir, Walsall Council’s cabinet member for regeneration, said: “We’re looking forward to seeing work start on site and very much welcome the investment and job creation that it will bring. I congratulate the work of Kier, The Light Cinema and their partners for bringing this project to this exciting stage. The scheme is great news for Walsall, making the town centre a more attractive place to visit, and will nicely complement the existing leisure facilities in the Waterfront area.”

London’s Lost Waterway. An Archaeology of Wherries and River Stairs on the Tidal Thames
Public transport is a major challenge in any large town, and London has tried many different solutions over its long history. With your support, Thames Discovery Programme want to rediscover how the Thames was once used as a major transport artery by its inhabitants, before the age of trains, tubes, buses and cars. In the late 16th century, some 2,000 river taxis (‘wherries') plied for hire on the Thames: by 1725 that number had increased to 15,000. In this period it is recorded that there were at least 88 regulated landing places on the river bank in the London area, the equivalent of today’s busy bus stops and tube stations. But what did they look like? Most comprised a river stair or jetty, with a causeway laid out over the foreshore that allowed passengers to board the boats at any state of the tide, high or low.

A project in British Archaeology, in London, UNITED KINGDOM, by Thames Discovery Programme wants to document London’s famous waterway in an age before endless cars, bridges, buses and over-crowded trains, to rediscover a time when Londoners routinely took to the river to get around their great city.
