From the park side

Hurrah for our Victorian forebears for dedicating themselves bountifully to the beautification of our municipal open spaces.

And hurrah for the preservationists of Leamington Spa for salvaging the exquisite bird house in the town's Jephson Gardens.

Ten years ago, the aviary was a derelict, dilapidated disaster.

Now it's a cheerful cafe, its froth of wrought-iron latticework painstakingly restored - an airy delight, possibly all the better for the absence of avian inhabitants.
