    Crowtree is a Leisure Centre in the middle of Sunderland,
    opposite the Empire Theatre.
    Opened in 1978,
    catering for all types of sport and tournaments inc snooker championships.
    Theres a coffee shop, pub (bar) and conference suite.
    Closed to the public October 2011, completely in 2012.
    The main part north of the walkway is gonna be demolished,
    south of the walkway will remain as part of the bridges development.
    The demolition is on a rolling contract, with 35 days remaining.
    This has been on My do list since April,
    but due to the building been sealed (shut) I had to wait until now. :(
    It is very much stripped of furnishings, fittings
    so isnt much remaining.
    I never went here while it was in use

    visit solo / with Catbalou
