    The Visit.
    Visited with @Choo Choo m8ty not really knowing what to expect, it is a large office building constructed in the late 1980's and has housed many different tenants over its lifetime. The building also features a small nightclub located in the basement. The whole place is pretty much trashed with the main redeeming factor being the terracotta covered entrance hall.

    About the Building.
    Grade II Listed Office building. 1889. By Alfred Waterhouse. Brick with terracotta dressings, and red plain tiled roof. 3 stories raised over basement with attic. 3-window range with recessed polygonal towers over entrances to each side. Polished granite plinth and piers to round-arched entrance in shallow projecting gabled porch. 3 wide round-arched windows to ground floor, each of 3 lights with small upper panes. Raised lettering "Prudential Assurance Buildings" over ground floor windows.

    3-light mullioned and transomed windows above, with decorative terracotta paneled architraves and cartouches over each window. Second floor windows similar. Lozenge frieze below modillion eaves cornice. New dormer windows in roof, and gable end stacks. 2-light transomed windows in 3 faces of angle towers, with decorative terracotta dressings. Attic story above cornice, and interlace decoration to frieze over attic windows.

    Hmmm, shouldn't be on the work PC this is the first time I viewed the report.

    Juts delete the Thread then, I'll wait for Forum Image Hosting to come back online.

    Let's see if the images show up first it seems a decent thread will only remove if dead.

    Image hosting will be switched back out of maintenance mode once we've completed and successfully testing the site upgrade that we're currently preparing for..
