    As you head into Hemel Hempstead approaching the magic roundabout (coming off the A414) there is a really large building on the opposite side of the road that is a wierd Zig Zag shape,

    Apparently this used to belong to the royal mail but has since been sold, was just wondering if anyone knew anything about this, had a bit of a wander round but it looks pretty hot on security.

    I can confirm that the building is empty, I was just wondering if anyone has had the balls to/is going to go in there??

    Duggie!

    Think this may be the building a mate of mine forwarded to me a few weeks ago. If so it looks well worth a look. If it's not I'll post that one up on here soon.

    Walk past this on my way to work, almost posted it myself... but it still appears to be partially live with lots of Royal Mail vans moving around nearby and plenty of posties leaving the site at hometime.

    On a Hemel-related note, does anyone have pics of the Kodak building during redevelopment? I've only been able to find crane shots and a report with dead image links.
