Not the most interesting place this, but I hope someone appreciates it.

History

Melbourne House is a typical grey, bleak office building the like of which you will find in any town. The building has, in its time, housed local authority departments for Central Bedfordshire Council however since CBC relocated to new offices at Chicksands this site became surplus to requirements. It has since changed hands a couple of times and has been granted planning permission to convert it to an impressive block of flats however no works have yet taken place. After the latest change of ownership it appears the manging company has been disolved, so this may be vacant for a while yet.

Visit

We had been talking about coming here for a while but with it being on the doorstep we always seemed to end up scrapping the plan for something more interesting. Eventually, over the bank holiday weekend we decided it was time. Having discussed the idea of rooftop pictures, it was inevitable that the day in question would be grey and miserable - much like the building. Inside it has been totally trashed as to be expected, but there is enough there that it was still entertaining. Overall, not a bad place despite the efforts of the local idiots.

Hope you enjoy.

Tried editing out a couple of duplicates and random POW camp shot at the end there. They aren't on my preview but are on the page so I give up. Guess I shall leave it in for the sake of variety haha.

The local neds have well fucked that place over. What's the script with the pow camp?
Yeah it's trashed and smashed but I guess with it being in a town centre and left open it was bound to happen.

When I am looking at the post the third to last pic is from Weston POW. Must have selected it by accident. If you aren't seeing that then it's even weirder.

I think this is scam for insurance company.I would never believe there will be someone who would smash every single floor. I was in this building myself, and it look way too dangerous.Air condition hanging on the stairs.

p.s Does anybody know when this building officially became vacant?

Come on man, how many places on here are trashed beyond all reason? Far bigger than this place too. I have seen kids throwing things off the roof in broad daylight so it's not hard to see what happened. Leave something like this open and it will attract trouble.

Well done for putting it up, they have started work on it at last now..

Must have past this a thousand times with apathy, but had a wee mooch one evening.

Nice shots there mate. I've just moved up to Bedfordshire last month, may have to go give this one a nosey :)
Thanks man, not such a 'walk in' now, they have put up a solid looking board fence all the way around. No such thing as impossible though eh?

Cheers bud, yeah - looks like something will happen soon. The plans look pretty intense, over 100 residential units potentially.
