Not much progress visible.







The posters at the front are just to show how wonderful the builders are. The tiled wall is still there, wrapped in steel.

Rebuilding the interior has started. Difficult to get a shot through the fences but this show the new pillars going up.

I have seen some photo's taken in summer 1989 and and it appears that the building started to look a bit shabby eg a few tiles missing/broken and the wooden shutters not looking great and a cracked window ... but the place was still occupied so having a guess I'd say it was abandoned sometime in mid 90s

To add to the one from Bob D that I posted earlier. these I took at lunchtime today.

One thing I haven't seen is the customary building permit or licence pinned to a wall. Whatever is being done is no doubt costing a fortune, so I wonder who is paying?

I have discussing elsewhere the date on which this might have been built. 1905 has been suggested from a reputable source. There is no dating evidence on the building, but one nearby has 1901 on it. Modern rebuilding, erosion and in one case near collapse has removed any evidence from other buildings in the same street.

You can't quite see it in this picture, but where the old stuff is being removed the back walls are being shored up with modern bricks.

Earlier today : vast amounts of mainly pulverised stone dust being taken away. The skip was full. The view from the back shows the extent of the demolition. There must be some kind of rebuilding coming. They have had a delivery of steel reinforcing bars.

Earlier, there were operatives with a jack hammer taking down an internal wall. It looked to be about two feet thick. Some of the large stones were being carefully stacked, so I guess they have a resale value.

Well before my time, at least 20 years. The first post on this thread is from 2008 and it was in a pretty poor state then. Early posts suggest it may have been empty for much longer. The tale is long and convoluted, that I do recall.

I didn't actually go inside. As you say, it looks unsafe even to the untrained eye.
