Cathedral Walk, Victoria 2:53
Time, date and weather: 4.20 pm, Saturday 26th August 2017. Partly overcast, 23°C, wind 6 mph.
Description: Starting at the junction with Palace Street and walking towards Victoria Street. Rushing noise from air conditioning vents; voices and footsteps of a few passersby; fallen leaves skitter across the ground; a man jungles a bunch of keys; repeated squeaks from an escalator; a more reverberant tone as the Walk passes under a roofed central hall; clatter of cutlery and voices of diners sitting outside a cafe; traffic noise from Victoria Street grows louder.
