Wrapped up

Hand Woven Wrap by ASF Shetland

The Lerwick Lanes are part of one of two conservation areas in Shetland (the other is in Scalloway). The Lanes run up from the harbour to the Hillhead, where the Town Hall sits, and lead on to the rest of the town.

Oliver was telling us the other day that the trees were planted on the steep slopes years and years ago to help drain the water and prevent flooding (seems obvious when you come to think about it!).

Peep down Lerwick’s crooked, narrow little arteries and see how they’ve changed during the last century here.
