    Default Youth Offender Services, NW London, August 08


    This set of pics are from the offices of a Youth Offender's Service, they have now moved further up the road.

    When I went in there was a lot of internal damage to the building, I guess some of it would have been down to equipment being stipped out for reuse, there was also evidence of drug users taking up residence.

    Its a lovely building, and just a shame that it stands empty, im sure there could be some use for it in the community.

    Hope you enjoy.





    side views of the building



    Rear car park access, and the front entrance overgrown



    Some kind of artwork, unseen from the street


    intercom entry


    Great doorway and on the other side




    Someone was watching


    there were numerous empty offices across 3 floors






    santa's list?


    some good advice


    although someone isn't taking any notice


    Hope you like them.

    Knowledge is realizing that the street is one-way, wisdom is looking both directions anyway

    Superb.

    Yes, that is a lovely building. I'd have that as my house.

    Love the outside of the building, and the tower part of the house. Good to see some older parts, ie the lovely bannister on the stairs, and the coving around the ceilings still there. Like the artwork in the former garden.

    Excellent find, like it.

    Cheers,

    Unless I am very much mistaken, this is a screen from something such as a BBC micro from around 1985, nice!

    Shame the roof is gone in places, it won't be there for long once the weather gets in ! The way the Government and their agents waste money is criminal.

    I would've thought it'd be more likely from the CCTV system.

    Loveley place and yeah, would love to bring it back to it's former glory and make it a home. Thanks for the pics.
