    Demolition plan for Swindon's Locarno listed building


    [​IMG]

    A listed building in Swindon could be demolished if a planning application is approved.

    The Grade II listed Locarno in Old Town has been derelict for a number of years and has had two arson attacks.

    The landowner, through developers Bach Homes (Locarno) Ltd, has submitted an application to Swindon Borough Council to demolish the building.

    Full story HERE

    This one was on the radar, and done a few times back in 2005/6 - sadly the only remaining report on here had long since lost it's pics - so has been binned - I know OT did it - any pics mate?

    does anyone know of any reports on the locarno?? i visited there last week on a whim but it was getting dark & i didnt have my torch so couldn't really see much. i did however see what looks like a quite large underground room(the part where the ground is open & a tree is growing into it). i intend to go back but was wondering if anybody had anymore information about the place, what i find online doesn't really say much :(

    There's a couple of pics in this set on flickr.

    I'll root around and see if there's any others of my visits on my flickr account, otherwise I'll try to upload some over the weekend.
