    Well they fixed up the exterior, painted it and put new double glazing in, but I guess the recession put paid to the rest...

    Visited with Rookinella. This was on our Euro-list, just as a big empty thing to see. We thought it was maybe a hospital or a factory. We drove up to it in a thunderstorm, the windows and paintjob made it look like another converted fail, but the overgrown grounds said otherwise.

    Downstairs was a mockup plasterboarded office type setting, upstairs left a smashed bathhouse. Final stairs expecting not much and walking in the door it's complete ZOMGWTF :eek:

    Lets get one thing straight, there's not a sniff of equipment left in this place, not any trace of anything except bare concrete. It's insane though, just pure large scale industrial epic, all levels and stairs and curved roof and 50's epic. With wind whistling around, rain pouring down, birds flying about it was absolutely mind blowing. Grinning from ear to ear. Completely unexpected win. Check this out:

    Oh, and one of the collieries had slight epic about it too:
