All over town, open space is vanishing. Part of the Belta and Pabst properties on Bayberry Lane will be developed; so, apparently, will the Kowalsky land on Clapboard Hill.
But a relatively large bit of greenery sits undisturbed on the corner of Partrick and Crawford Roads. It’s been there for decades.
The open space — complete with a bench — was last week’s Photo Challenge. Marilyn Heffers, Alex Wennberg, Cathy Barnett and Derek Fuchs all knew exactly where it was. (Click here to see.)
Which raises a couple of interesting questions: It looks like a militia training ground — was that the original use?
How has it remained undisturbed?
And — only slightly off-topic — where does the odd name “Partrick” come from?
Now here is this week’s Photo Challenge. If you know where in Westport you’d see this, click “Comments” below.
