Centre is a ‘blot on the landscape’

WHAT an absolute eyesore is the much vaunted new Maritime Centre in Newbiggin.

The relatively beautiful vista of the bay now ends at its northern end with what in my view appears to be an industrial estate obliterating the iconic parish church.

Did the architect not visit the area before damning us to structures that are entirely out of sympathy?

If he did surely he would have designed the centre to blend in with the surroundings rather than a multi-coloured monstrosity.
