A sad sight and then a sadder one ...

Posted by Picasa

The gradual decline and demolition of Ullenwood can be seen here: (© English Heritage.NMR) thanks again to English Heritage for the top picture from Michael Hesketh-Roberts's July 1999 "Cold War project" series. The dining hall and kitchen block are still just about standing but becoming gradually shabbier and more derelict. The last coat of paint was a rather splendid blue.

Bottom picture taken by Phil on the day of the 2004 reunion about five years later towards the end of the demolition: the remains of the kitchen step are shown: you can see the same bricks at the corner. A few weeks ago, I posted a different perspective taken by me on the same day in 2004
