Former shipbuilder and locomotive engineer. Although trashed and modernised in places, the buildings ooze history. The lavish board room, with it's ornate plaster ceiling and wood panelling shows how prosperous the shipbuilders once were. I'm glad I got to see this before it goes, even if I did miss it's clock tower:rolleyes:

The plasterwork in the board room depucts ships of all types and British lions on pedistalls

Some of the wood panels have been removed, to reveal this wood panel 'wallpaper', which is much much older.
