    Great bit of family history. Thanks so much for sharing it with us! At least they seem to have done a pretty good job at re-using the building. Top work!

    Very interesting info and pics, ER...I especially liked the views you took as, for me personally, seeing the outside and the setting of buildings really rounds it out and gives them more meaning. Thanks for sharing that. :)

    What a wonderful building - thank you for sharing your memories and photos with us. It's good to see the building has not been demolished but wouldn't you just love to have the funds to buy the building and revert it back to it's former glory?

    Welcome to DP and thanks again for your post.

    Losrios :)

    Oooooooooooh, it looks really grand now, and clean. It looks great. And love those views. They've done a really good job of renovating the place.

    Thank you so much for putting up the latest pictures of the place. I love it.

    Cheers,

    Hi elmete rob

    Sorry not to have replied before, but haven't been here for a while. Must be strange for you to come across your old home in this way!

    I've a few more photos from when it was finally empty, but only 30 or so. If you get in touch by private message on here I'll put them on a CD and send them to you if you like. They're not very good at all though. Here's some of them.

    Unfortunately shortly before I visited some of the large fireplaces were stolen. I have to be careful what I say as this is the story as told to me. So only second hand. Stolen one night while security was on-site, need I say more. You know how large they were, it would take more than two people a long time to dismantle them and load them up.

    Anyhow, here's a few more pics.

    Hi RikJ,

    Aye I was aware the Fire places and door surrounds went a number of years ago. They were amazingly ornate, We must have some photos some where.

    I'll send a PM a little later Id love to see the rest of the shots.

    It really was in a sorry state wasnt it! Although I dont 100% approve of the refurb and the change of use (mainly the splitting it up into seperate units bit) I am very glad to see it being used and loved once more.

    Now if only I could win the lottery 3 times over!
