    Passed this place while out and about in Newcastle today (was with colleague and suited and booted so couldn't stop for a closer look).

    There are newspaper reports that it suffered a fire in 2010, looks to be all boarded up now.

    Had a look at this place a couple of months back, looked like someone had been having a go at the metal sheeting around the back at the left, but it still looked secure when I was there..
