The Clifton Inn which survived the blitz whilst everything twenty feet opposite was destroyed (a road of terrace houses)which just shows how indiscriminate and luck of the draw bombing is.

It's interesting to see that these bombed out houses in Dix's Field still haven't been demolished. Could they have been saved?
