Explored with Dweeb, Rooks and Raddog.

A great little building stranded in it's own flattened wasteland.

I was told the reason these and other shipbuilding offices are so grand is because they were fitted out by the same tradesmen that fitted the ships out. Whether that's true or not I can't prove, however it is rather nice...

In what was probably once the drawing room, you can see this through the suspended ceiling...

and on closer inspection...

I'm going to suggest that where the lighter coloured wood panels are, used to be windows to really flood the room with light. These have now been concealed internally and externally. Maybe someone could go up and see if there's any glass behind the wood?

In the loft, there's some really nice, old paperwork, plans of ships etc.

The racks for holding plans and paperwork...

Drove past last week... they were just finishing crushing the bricks to aggregate :( One of my favorite buildings for many reasons, I am actually quite sad to see what became of it.

Sad seeing what's happened there, piece of history gone, and the reason that this site is great, being able to see that before it disappeared. It's almost as sad seeing the suspended ceiling hash job hanging inside that beautiful original roof structure!! Craftsmanship and engineering trumped by cheapness and speed..........it will all go full circle.......
