    This place has been taunting me for years now as I pass it daily. Several recces over a few years finally paid off. Deep down I knew I'd be disappointed and ultimately I was. But it was an itch I just had to scratch.

    I couldn't find a firm date when it closed but at a guess I say mid 90s. It use to contain Inland Revenue offices


    Theres been numerous mentions over the years about "Dudley's Eyesore" being turned into a shopping complex but no big chain has actually stepped up to the challenge. For me personally I'd like to see a Greg's superstore on the 6th floor, maybe a costa on the 5th. I ought to write these ideas down.

    Dudley's magnificent skyline where varied poundshops, cash'a'cheque shops and unique fast food eateries dominate the landscape.
    Notice Cousins furniture to left. I once returned a sofa there as it didn't fit my mood.

    Nice report, I like your pics. Definitely worth a visit at night, good chance for some long exposures of the by pass and surrounding areas. Nice one :thumb

    i'd drive by this place every day, when i was working on Russells Hall hospital. Good to finally see inside, knocking it down would cause millions of pounds worth of improvements to the Dudley skyline.
