IELTS Academic Writing - Task 1
Many developments have taken place in the town centre since 1700.
To begin with, the roads have been widened, traffic lights inserted at Steggle Road and there is now a roundabout and pedestrian crossing in Market Street. Market Street has been extended southwards.
While the river and bridge remain the same, Steggle Farm in the South and the fields South of the High Street no longer exist. New houses , shops as well as a supermarket have now been built.
Market Square and the church in the centre of the town remain the same while the hotel has increased in size. North of the centre, Goode Farm has been replaced by a large car park and houses. Finally, to the right of Market Street, the stables are now a block of flats and many more houses have been built.
To conclude, the town centre today has been modernised, with wider, organised roads. Farms and fields have made way for housing and many more buildings.
