The map of Hull is slowly improving. Today we covered the remaining part of the North of Hull that is alongside the West bank of the river Hull. It was the normal estate bashing, which is not too exciting but something always turns up.
Jean told me that the Mizzen Road estate was known as the Ghost Estate because no-one wanted to move in there. They were afraid of flooding being so close to the river. The irony is that the terrible flooding in the city - exactly one year ago today - was not caused by the river but by such heavy rain that the surface water couldn't run away fast enough. There are still people living in caravans in their front gardens while their homes are being rebuilt. We saw some today. You can view the map here.
We then moved to finish an area of Wincolmlee, nearer the heart of the city, but still near the river. This is an industrial area with the usual mix of new metal sheds and some old brick buildings with every type of business. In amongst this there is a slightly incongruous, rather splendid building being used as a care home.
We still need to add the landuse tags for the Wincolmlee area. We are getting close to completing half of the city.
