    Nice to get some free time for once and even better to nail somewhere I'd been after for a while! I met up with Syme for a welcome to London explore/recce/drink! First up was a quick recce around The old parts of Smithfields markets. The two buildings closest to Holborn viaduct make up the Fish market and the General market.

    These buildings are currently under threat of demolition and replacement with glass box high rise offices! I suggest those who would like to know more about what they plan to do should read here

    Some info on the history of the place.
    As we were checking the place out, we were given a chance to get in that beggeed to be taken, once inside, my first thought was the floors, I had heard that one of the reasons behind the propsed demo was that the floors were in a bad state, I could see no obvious signs of trouble and only solid concrete throughout. Nothing arty as time could have been limited and I wanted to get some proper shots of the place. I'll be getting in touch with English heritage to see if these shots help their case for keeping the site standing too :)
