    I have not yet visited anywhere or made a report but I have noticed the Tollgate Hotel which has been empty for some years now. It is just off the A2 Eastbound (Gravesend Central) and I presume started to lose it's way after the A2 was relocated slightly to the South of it's location. It has recently been purchased by BP who happen to supply a privately owned petrol station nearby and there is planning for a new BP petrol station and McDonalds on it's site.

    If anybody local fancies making a visit with a newbie please give me a shout. It likely won't be long until this old hotel is demolished.

    there was a guy on here I think that managed to have a look round there and I dont think theres much to see to be honest. I think he asked permission to look round and his contact thought he was interested in buying the land. I think it all gutted, slowly falling apart and no architectural value features.

    Has been an eyesore for a long time, but that area really doesnt need another garage and mcdonalds

    Checking this out Saturday despite the emptiness of it all, been interested in it as from a young age all I can remember is it being empty.

    May or may not post about it, will see what I can shoot.

    To be honest I think it's forever dodging the demo year by year and will be around for a while longer.
