    Got in as soon as we could but unfortunately a bit too late as all the good stuff was auctioned off within a few weeks of closure.

    History cobbled together from www.arthurlloyd.co.uk and www.donny.co.uk

    Apologies for the lack of variety in the pics, there really was very little to see - dressing rooms were just mirrors, formica and white paint, front of house was stripped bare.

    Shots from a couple of visits (spent too long failing to see the obvious on the first visit so had to go back a second time)

    Some fine shots there, sir. That roofspace shot is particularly well lit :thumb

    I'm glad we got this one ticked off, but like you say it's just a shame there was nothing left. It'll be gone soon though, so I'm glad we got to see it.

    I'll chuck mine here if you don't mind...
