    Another fine report SS :)

    In particular, I like shot no. 6 -Estate Agents would describe this room as being "in original condition"!!!

    Is the whole place due to be flattened, or will they be keeping the older parts?

    Thanks for sharing matey.

    Hi mate, from what I can gather they are keeping the memorial wing.

    I managed to find a little history and some old pictures of the place.

    Hi,

    Fantastic photos - as someone who spent a lot of time in and out of the place it is very odd to see it looking like it does now.

    I actually live very close to this site and they have demolished tremendously in the past few weeks. I know security has been tightened up quite substantially as they have had a spate of thefts so if anyone is now thinking of going inside it could pose a problem.

    If you would like me to take photos of the outside I would be happy to do so....I'm no photographer, mind you :)
