2006 end of year round-up
Nothing To See Here has only been going for 8 months of 2006 but there have been lots of great places to go.
To recap, our contributors have spotted:
- peculiar record breakers like The World's Largest Hedge in Perthshire
- stars of stage and screen such as the Bradbury Building in LA, and the home of Robinson Crusoe in Fife
- folk art and public art: Lancaster's Knitted Village, Oxford's Untitled, David Mach's Train in Darlington, and Nebraska's Carhenge
- overlooked towns: Moffat in Dumfriesshire, Saltburn-by-the-Sea, North Yorks
- strange phenomena: Ayrshire's Electric Brae and The Whispering Gallery in New York, New York
- old-tyme attractions: Blackpool Model Village, and the Fairytale Garden in Munich
- follies and unusual buildings: Manchester's fabulous Toast Rack and The Pineapple in Dunmore near Stirling
- industrial icons: Sizewell Power Station, East Anglia and the Tyne Pedestrian Tunnels
And we've had to say goodbye to some old friends. Mondial House, hated by many but loved by our readers lost its battle with the planners and the Wicker Man's legs in Burrowhead were cut down by vandals. There was good news though when Antony Gormley's Another Place got a reprieve and was allowed to stay on Crosby Beach.
We're always looking for new material so if you find a place you love do think of writing an article. Here's to lots more Nothing To See in 2007.
