    Stolen History:
    The Newport Towers Hotel lies between Bristol and Gloucester. Quite a popular rest stop on the A38 and did good business until the M5 was built, re-routing all traffic away from the hotel. It has been derelict since late 2006 when it finally closed.

    The Visit:
    Arrived bright and early hoping to get a good explore on the go... Only to find just about most of it boarded up.. meaning inside was pretty dark.. and stupid me had forgotten torch and flash unit!! Still managed to get some photos tho..

    Exterior overgrown!

    Such a random turret.

    Nice one for managing to get some shots after having forgotten half your gear :thumb
