    Visted with Randomnut and Catscratch after a rather fustrating and long day, with fails at St. Clements and Springfield, we thought why not Colindale as we were in the area. A bit rushed as time was not on our side and the place was alive with builders, but a good time had by all.

    Recommend if you want to see this place get in there quick as the bulldozers are well into knocking the place down.

    I was there a couple of weeks ago and they were getting quite far with demolition on the newer parts. All the power and gas is off now. That's my alternate home gone then...

    As far as I know, none of the good bits have gone yet, and most of it's left, but they do seem to be doing it quite quickly - compared to many demolition companies, at least.

    visited this place last weekend, shocked to see the amount of demo and it was pretty well guarded and pretty busy around at the time so no way of getting in, they've blocked off one of the roads leading down the side of it. We were gonna persevere and try and find somewhere to get in but instead we tried for Cane Hill instead....which would have been a goer if there wasn't a fire engine sat right in the middle of the site with firemen in it:rolleyes:

    Bit worrying that fire engine in the middle of the site and evidence of recent fire damage on one of the buildings .. pretty sure the fireman was sound asleep though! :rolleyes:

    Colindale looks possible to do but as mentioned above you need to be quick getting in there, think we spent a bit too much time wandering about trying to assess it and got spotted by security .. twice! :banghead

    Great shots there mate, i'll get mine up asap. It was a good day even with the earlier frustrations.

    Definitely glad to have visited the place seeing as how demolition is moving ahead at a rate of knots.

    Yeah glad I got there as well, been a couple of times now and pretty much covered it all, except for the hall, the first time I forgot, the second time I couldn't be bothered.
