Was landmark beyond hope?
Images taken inside a doomed Stafford landmark have been posted on the internet, just days before it is flattened
But campaigners say photographs uploaded onto website www.28dayslater.co.uk cast a new light on the claims.

They say the pictures, taken within the last few days by a mystery cameraman, show the building is in much better condition than the police authority has claimed
Full article

p.s, that would be a mystery cameraman going by the name 'a man called martyn' - and they have one of your pics up mate :cool:

Personally I wouldn't invoice them, it's been used in the right context, in my opinion.

Have the Express and Star not mentioned 28DL before (I think in connection with the Royal) in a far less complimentary fashion?

I think you have the Berkswich History society to thank for the postive article as they have being working hard to try and save the Building.I did meet two members when i revisited the site on sunday for a few more pictures,They had offered to help me with the history of the building,But i did not take them up on the offer as i got lost looking for there house should also say they were very supportive of my actions in entering the building.There was also a guy in a pick up truck in the fenced off compound around Baswich house who seemed to be just pinching old carpet tiles.There was another photographer taking pictures from the path who i offered to show around the house but they declined.

It's a postive step forward though, the inherent acknowledgement that urbexers are generally interested in conservation rather than vandalism and trouble-making. Let's hope that future articles from the Express&Star lean towards that perception instead of the usual crap about "breaking in" and "endangering themselves and others".

I don't suppose you have a much higher res image mate ? Doesn't matter about image size when it comes to being able to read the text.

These pictures have caused a bit of a fuss eh?

We go from villains to being cast as heroes in one step. Nice and positive but wait I can hear the tabloids sharpening their pens....
Congrats to the man with the camera though.
