I took these shots back in January 2015 as I heard the Crumpled Horn had closed.
I have worked in those skanky toilets many years ago..long since closed.
Good excuse to have a nose round the pub while it is empty
As you can see,it was a frosty morning
The shops were slowly being vacated
Viewed from under the linked causeway
Eldene Community Centre which for the time being will remain open.
Community Centre entrance
It incorporates a church and toddler pre-school
Graff...also on the left was one of two entrances to the flats above the shops
A once busy little set of shops and district centre no more
At the rear now showing the flats above and the shop`s loading bays
The other entrance up to the flats
Vacated now with the asbestos team inside removing nasties!
I worked in the flats years ago,and they were quite spacious
I do remember some of the tennents were rather undesirable!
Soon to be gone
Site Agent patrolling
The linked covering was the first to be removed
And there it is..all gone
I was told the area will be landscaped and grassed over with permission granted for any future housing plans,but not in the immediate future.
As of December 2015,it is as if nothing ever was here
That was Eldene shops.
