Looking down Darlington Street towards Chapel Ash. It used to be lovely to walk down to shops in Chapel Ash before the Rind Road sliced through and sucked the life blood out of Chapel Ash. Now, on this Saturday in early March we see the effects of online shopping and the car to whisk one away to other towns; there is simply no-one here mid-morning. The pavements used to be chock-a-block with people and one had to walk in the road often. Of course, it is relatively recently that we have had Sunday opening and late evening shopping, before that, working Monday to Friday, Saturday was the only day to shop for anything other than food items
