    Not too much history on this place, a quote pinched from another page

    ""Only the soaring S tower is seen from afar. Yet to approach it and enter its windowless hulk is a powerful architectural experience. It stands high on a shoulder above the road, from which a long flight of steps wanders up to the towering W front. This is an awesome sight, sheer walls of hammerdressed local sandstone almost devoid of ashlar dressings....

    The building was reported in 1958 to be suffering from severe subsidence and structural defects, which the substitution of flat concrete roofs failed to cure. It was closed c. 1980"
