Picture taken earlier today. Absolutely nothing can be seen of what they are doing inside. Loads of cement and other building materials outside.

Nothing to see at the moment. The building is completely shrouded in netting and hidden behind tall fences. Work obviously continues inside, judging by the amount of stuff being left on site, but high up so it can't be nicked.

A9NDY - that's the one I was looking for. Thanks. Looking forward to your furthercontributions. There is in fact one tiny area of green remaining, just above that left hand door.

I have quite a few photos of the building from 2008-2019 that I’m going to upload at some point so you all can see the rate of decline . I’ve picked a few good ones the roof completely collapsed by 2015

It looks an impressive building compared to the normal houses that are just painted white, so it must have stuck out like a sore thumb.

Great. Thanks.

This is one I took in December 2003. Not the best but well before the lift was built, the beach widened and that precarious looking structure fell down. I will continue the search for the other one.

That could be impressive when finished.  I never saw the building before it it became a sad ruin.
