    A brief summery for you:

    Demolition has been approved.

    We've been looking at this one for a while now, and this time, for the first time, it would seem luck was on our side.

    After a long week, this was certainly a rewarding way to end it. Think what you want of it, some would say this isn't particularly interesting and just a massive derp, but personally I found it fascinating to see and completely worth it too. Having visited the rink a couple of times when I was younger, it brought back some vague memories.

    The place really is in a state, but then again it was in a state before it closed and indeed for the last however many years. That being said, the people of Bristol were still very unhappy at its closure. It did seem to be attracting a large amount of visitors still, which makes you question the closure further.

    There is some evidence here and there of it being a cinema in its previous years, but this is mostly gone.

    We also found what looks like an old night club, way up in the higher level, which looks like builders briefly moved in once, set up some lights and put some office desks around, then left. I didn't take any pictures up in those parts, as we didn't fancy having to pay parking fines so had to be off. That being said, there isn't too much of interest as it's all been fairly trashed. It was still interesting to see all that above the ice rink, a place where people mostly likely haven't been for years.

    An interesting read from a Bristolian talking about building when it held a nightclub and a cinema too.

    The rink from the front, years before closure:
