    Up to the roof levels for an explore and looking around the lower levels reveals just how vast this building is...there are loads of rooms from top to bottom...all stripped to the bone and in various states of renovation.
    Around the building are wonderful signs of a the opulance of a different era altogether....intricate masonary on the stonework, art deco paintings/stone carvings and staircases.
    I reckon if they put enough into this...its going to come out and absolute stunner when its finished...
    Anyhow..I digress....have at you with the pictures !

    The Clock Tower
    .....in through one of the spires into the clock tower chamber

    [​IMG]

    The clock gear room is teeny and the clock itself unfortunatley is
    electronic...cogs and gears drive the hands

    [​IMG]

    Its pretty quiet in here and the clock faces give some lovely reflections from the orange of the street lights below..

    The 'Penthouse Suite' which I believe is going for a cool 10million quid...

    Inside
    Most of the (many) rooms are down to the bricks and woodwork ...not a great deal to see in em....but some lovely stonework around

    [​IMG]

    The main staircase...wow....looks amazing...and they are taking care to restore it well....here are some crazy angles on it.

    Well this is the "Gone but not forgotten" section so it should be clear

    Sincere apologies to Paul Powers and all UE mates of Down Fallen/Mad Dog - no disrespect was intended
    by me. I mistakenly thought the tab referred to buildings' past glories.
    My feeble excuse is that I am old and sat up in the early hours looking at 28 Days' website.- a bit more,
    and then more still, until I could hardly keep my eyes open.

    Very belated condolences to those who knew and loved Down Fallen. I am so enjoying his photograph
    albums and am grateful that Flickr has left them on his account to be viewed by newcomers.
    Such a fine body of work will be long remembered, but it was the remarkable man that shone through
    - his artistry, his sensitivity - as well as his skill, daring and courage.
    Down Fallen's work must inspire younger UEs and many an aspiring photographer.

    I will return another time to the photographs in the albums, as alas I have to stop viewing now.
    I should say that I was drawn in the first place to view that particular post as St. Pancras Chambers
    is a particular favourite of mine.
    Thank you, Paul Powers, for so promptly updating the tribute page. Kind regards, flaming 22.
