    I hope the tiled bricks are being kept for reclaim, would be crap if the whole lot went for rubble!

    I agree, im glad I got to see it too. So are they just slowly demolishing the place now then? Are they building anything in its place? Such a shame places like this are just cast aside and forgotten about like that.

    according to people on other forums, i've heard things like.. Some of the main building will be converted to luxary flats, The main admin building is to become a restaurant/bar. and the church to be made into a community centre. So if that's true alot will remain.

    That'd be correct. We have it on good authority that the tower will be a luxury pad and the main entrance will be a restaurant serving organic tasties from the farm on the outskirts of the site.

    Visited last Sunday, got some pics I'll add to this thread later, demolition crew on site weren't bothered about us standing about taking pics, had a nice chat with an old lady who appeared out of nowhere, and no, she wasn't a ghost.

    We checked out the outlying buildings and they're all full of numbers so it's just a matter of time before they come down or the refurbishment begins.

    Shame to see one of the great urbex explores on the way out, but glad that it's going to help out (my) local community by creating a bit of business. Nice to get there at least one last time!

    Luxary Pad? Nice! So the builders don't mind you walking around taking photos? Did you go inside?

    No problems taking pics and sure thing no problems noone looked at s twice. I got pics but I also have a month old baby who's taking up more than a little of my time on the evenings, the pics I took are still on the camera but I'll do my best to get my backside in gear and get them online soon.
