    Excellent work missy. So glad someones got in recently. I put up a lead to this a few years ago too, can't remember whether it was before or after Saul did it lol. (long time ago, memory is fading now lol).

    Like that red coloured apartment upstairs, and the leather look settees in the underground bar area. Snooker table looks in a bad way tho.

    Love that staircase, looks great. We drove past it a few months ago, and it was busy all around then, so we didn't bother.

    Excellent pics,

    Cheers,

    :) Sal

    Many thanks to NobodyGirl for inviting me along on the snowy Buxton trip,
    her interior pics are much better than the ones i took, so just a couple from outside to add.....





    A couple i found from it's previous days, before it was divided up into apartments and flats in more recent years, it was known as Electricity Hall in the 50's, when the electricity board had their offices there....



    this one from the early 1900's......

    Great photos of a really nice building. Hope it gets restored rather than demolished!

    hey,

    Had a look this evening - the roof of the main part has gone but the two wings still are standing! Will get some photos tomorrow!

    Was hoping someone local would get chance to have a look at the place today. Mendo heard about the fire, then texted me, but didn't have enough petrol for me to get up there and get a quick look. :(

    Interested in seeing the latest (sadly) burn't pics of the building. Hopefully it can be reconstructed, it's a lovely building. :)

    Some pics taken today between the snow showers!


    The cars in the photo are the police changing shift! There is also an ummarked police car round the back!




    From the pub carpark





    The wings seem untouched by the fire



    Such a shame - compare the roof in the pictures in Kaputnik's post!

    Cheers MS. Looking at your pics, it doesn't actually look as bad as I thought it was going to be. :) Hopefully the fire will have been kept to the upper floors and roof. The outside still looks in ok condition.

    Cheers,

    :) Sal

    I was suprised to see how much was still standing and not too badly damaged. Local gossip says that the fire was on the top floor and that whoever set it, removed the staircase to hinder the fire brigade. The police are still there, front and back and questioning the locals to see if anyone saw anything.

    Hmmmm, removed the staircase to hinder the fire brigade. I don't know about anyone else, but the owner wouldn't have been anywhere near it would he? (similar thoughts of Derby Hippodrome spring to mind), maybe it's just me being suspicious again. But it seems like it?
