    Default The Grand Hotel, Plymouth


    this one took many reccys, some puzzle solving and a few failed attempts....:)

    Another plymouth urbex first & well I've been working on this one for many months now, Done several reccy's, and a couple of failed (half) attempts....

    The grand was built in 1879 and had 77 bedrooms and even william gladstone made a speech here in 1889 to a crowd of 10,000!

    its grade II listed, and suffered from a serious fire in 2003....

    anyway, onto the pics....

    Very impressive looking building. Love the old staircases and especially like the balcony pic. Excellent work. :)

    wow, got some really moody shots there, especially the staircases after the fire...
    nice stuff!! Can imagine the sunrise being fab along there!
    Watch these fleeting hours soon past, remember that which comes last.
