That is shocking that the Council are still the owners of the building and cannot even keep it wind and watertight.

I thought that it must have been sold on before it got into that state. When we were looking at it with an Architect it was for a feasibility study, it was well gone then but not beyond repair.

That tells you why the Council don't issue many improvement notices on buildings at risk in private ownership. How could they? When they cannot look after their own assets.

Glasgow City with Style, City of Victorian and Edwardian Heritage.........Only if it falls within a certain post code.

I've got to say, I think this last one turned out beautiful. Everything that the 'past present' is all about. What would that family say about their church if they could see it today?
