Empty since 1996 and now in a parlous state, see above. The freehold for some years belonged to an American property company but I passed the building recently and it has now been adorned with an “Acquired for redevelopment by….” billboard so it has presumably been sold and demolition might be imminent. Not quite in a prime location, but does offer a good view of the adjacent Lidl and car park.

The pictures on 28DL no longer show up, but there’s an upsetting/angering recent picture here.

Why bother ripping stuff out if you’re not going to use the building? At least let it sit in its original, unspoiled state until you’ve decided what to do with it, or sell it on and let the new owners decide.

This is a more recent photo from Google. Unfortunately the head-on view was blocked by a huge truck.
