chimney was 107 metres high). The new Gas Power Station is expected to
be completed by the winter.

FRESH AIR FOR THE TOWNS
Swathing through the indignation
of the proposed building on the green fields, I still do not know if the
new homes initiative actually represents an increase in needed accommodation
over the present number of homes built each year.
It seems to me that in the
Adur district they have been building on school playing fields with high
density housing ever since I can remember. There is another important issue
called “Town Cramming”. If every part of the town is infilled with
brick and concrete, the town turns itself into a city, or an urban extension
to Brighton. This is exactly the reason why people want to leave the cities
in the first place.
The Lord Rogers recipe for
revitalising the cities by building high density terraced homes would seem
to have only a limited scope in Adur.

These two diagrams show what
can be done reasonably simply, by someone (like me) who may be artistically
inclined but does not have the skills with the pencil or paintbrush. These
are not works of art but functional plans for a purpose.
The first scale survey was
the rough drawing drawn up by David Wood for the World
Ocean's Day Exhibition at Coronation Green on 3 June 2000. The most
important part of the first drawing are the two rectangular (drawn to scale)
boxes in the bottom left hand corner. These are the marquees that have
to be arranged on the green in between the flower beds which the Adur DC
Parks Department decided to install after the first survey.
On paper they can be cut
out and arranged where you want. However, by using the popular shareware
program called Paint Shop the boxes can be moved with the cursor.
The procedure is:
1. Make sure the Tool
Palette is on view (View menu)
2. Define the rectangle
geometric area selection (easy).
3. Draw the rectangle
over the area you wish to move and drag it across.
4. Save the file under
a different name.
I also find Paint Shop the
easiest method to place text on a diagram. This is reasonably easy as well.
However, there was one thing to do before that. I wanted a colour diagram,
and I find Photoshop easiest for this. I dare say it can be done
in Paint Shop. It is important to fill the background colours in first,
before overlaying the text.

Certainly not to everyone's
taste, but this site has been for years and was up and running before most
people had even heard of the Internet. It shows what can be done by the
diligent researcher. Despite huge amounts of information on every single
U-boat in World War II plus others as well, the pages are easy to navigate.
It even includes interviews with living U-boat captains.
