Derelict London - Paul Talling
ISBN 978-1-905-21143-2


This little paperback is a collection of over a hundred pictures of derelict buildings all over London, each with a facing page of history. Only a few buildings have more than one picture, but it's a really good little guidebook - if I lived in London, this would be a great starting list for urban exploration.

Just this second been given a copy of this (a supprisingly well thought out 'Secret Santa' present from one of the nurses @ work)

I'll second what Ben says - mainly external views - but an interesting little "shopping list" for anyone in London.

(although I notice the cover price is £9.99 - our budget was £10 - where's my penny you tight-wads? - I spent the full tenner on you!)

One thing to be careful of though, is to make sure that what ever building you wanna check out aint since been demo-ed or converted or there will be tears before bedtime :-(

I started going through the book systematically, there wasn't a lot left IIRC.

Edit: It's actually Harry's book, I borrowed it about a year ago.


As you do
