    Planning approved for demolition and a new sainsburys at the end of last month. Wants checking out quickly as it might already be coming down - nice mix of buildings and potential for epic.

    I'm surprised this place is still there as news reports of it's closure date back to February 2009. Worth a butchers.
    Wonder if it has a shadow factory.:D

    It was still there a few weeks ago. I have been keeping my eye on it for a few years but its quite tight normally. Hopefully it will change now.
