    "Goodmans Fields was a large, low red-brick complex built in the late 1970s as a computer centre, interbank cheque clearing centre and IT development centre for National Westminster Bank. The name relates to a nearby area dating back to Elizabethan times. In the mid 1980s an extension was built on the west of the site, replacing a small parade of shops/offices at the southeast corner. In the early 1990s the mainframe computers were removed. In 2000 NatWest was taken over by Royal Bank of Scotland. In
    2006, development started on part of the site to create Berkeley Homes' City Quarter. Remaining RBS operations are likely to move to nearby buildings during 2007."

    Visited 2009 with Phobot. Demo still appears to be underway, all be it at a snails pace. Quite strange looking at a modern site after exploring so much old stuff recently.

    A set of holes banged out the floors to dump the crap through...

    Lights are still on...

    In the plant room, loads of huge gene's for backup purposes...

    Remains of a server room...

    A sprint to the roof...


    Altough the site is HUGE, it's all largely the same on each of the floors...




    And a quick peek at the old front entrance before we leave...
