Uxbridge High Street 4:48
Time, date and weather: 3.05 pm, Saturday 11th November 2017. Overcast, 9°C, wind 6 mph.
Description: Starting at the junction of Belmont Road and Uxbridge High Street. Hubbub of voices; a busker sings and plays a guitar nearby; the noise of mobile generator, growing louder then fainter; sizzling of food being cooked at stalls; a salesman's amplified voice from a shop selling cheap perfume and jewellery; light aircraft drone; footsteps and rustle of bags; a street preacher holds forth on the open space outside Uxbridge tube station; one of his fellow congregants tries to speak to the recordist but is ignored; the pedestrianised High Street grows quieter; voices from people sitting outside a cafe; a child prattles; traffic on Vine Street.
