The postcard I designed for my change of address
notifications. The combination of waiting for BT to
install the telephone line so that I could confirm
my telephone number followed by the task of finishing off
the web site meant the cards were not sent out until almost
4 months after moving in.
The colours and white cross, also used in this web site,
were an idea based on the flag of the
Order of St John
which flies over the nearby
St John's Gate, the Tudor gateway of the priory of the
Knights of St John.
A section of a stone wall, thought to belong to the priory's
Great Barn has been found up to 2m high in the site next
door to 53 Britton Street on it's Briset Street side.
Briset Street is named
after Jorden de Briset, the Norman knight who founded the
priory. Offices (Crystal Court) have now being constructed on the site.
