June 3rd 3021

I spent a few moments gazing out of the window this morning. It’s something I often do, but this morning it occurred to me to imagine what the street outside might look like in a thousand years from now. What will it look like on June 3rd 3021?

Looking at it another way, a thousand years ago on June 3rd 1021 the street would certainly have been different in that it would not have been there at all. The whole town was probably no more that one or two cottages and a few farms – if that. It was centuries before coal was discovered and serious building began.

Nobody in 1021 could have foreseen how things would change over the next thousand years and 3021 is just as impenetrable to us now. All we have is our imagination, so in my imagination the whole street has disappeared by 3021. Houses, road, everything all gone. Nothing left for estate agents to do. There are a few trees, bushes and brambles but no sign whatever of our street. Not even a few foundations sticking up through the undergrowth.

No familiar landmarks either and the lie of the land is far more difficult to make out because of the trees. Taking these musings a little further, I imagined myself meandering through the trees towards what in 2021 was Sainsbury’s. I can just about make out where it must have been. 

Now there is nothing but a log cabin in a clearing. A thread of smoke from a stone chimney winds itself into still air. A dog barks and animal pelts are drying in the sun. Yet in spite of the sunshine it is quite chilly for June.

Why a log cabin? Maybe in a thousand years from now, large areas of the UK are virtually uninhabited apart from a few hardy types who prefer to scratch a primitive life in what is now a wilderness. Not because of some catastrophe but because over the centuries the global population declined and people left for more congenial areas of the world. They migrated to areas where natural resources are still plentiful and vast automated farms more feasible.

Aha – I’ve just noticed. The sky hereabouts in 3021 is blue with no visible vapour trails from aircraft. Apart from the birds it is almost silent – an almost deserted land. I quite like it but a few flakes of snow are falling. It certainly is cold – colder that I expected. Global cooling has set in perhaps. Another reason why people left.
