A little patch of magic
The view from Highcroft Villas is very special to me. Just on the bend is an allotment area surrounded by a chain-link fence, and peering between its rusty wires you see Preston Village, Withdean and Westdene set out before you. I especially love this view at night when the areas of green parkland and playing field are inky black and houses along Preston Drove look like little lanterns raised along the hillside. It’s a little patch of magic for me.
