Looks like a fascinating ruin to explore.
Great angle - Amazing isn't it! I love the door!
John Prior: It is a lovely and large building, this is just an unused part of it.

Is it a village shop John, put out of business by a supermarket chain?
John Prior: No Chad there are some craft businesses in parts of the complex, this was once part of a car repair workshop I think.

It's amazing it's still there I suppose John!
John Prior: I'm surprised this has been neglected, parts of it are occupied by businesses, this looked as though it was used as a repair garage as there are some old abandoned cars, but it looks untouched for a good few years.
Cracking picture John. I wonder what the beer was like.
John Prior: I think the closure caused lots of dismay in 1929 as it was the major employer in Amersham. Later part of it was used by Goya for their perfume manufacture.
I could stare at this for hours. Nice work!
John Prior: Thanks David
A nice shot, John,a good display of cobwebs, I'm with you on the albums! smile
John Prior: Thanks Fred
Jesus creepers [grin}
John Prior: Indeed, watch out for the spiders. Cheers Richard.

John Prior: Thank you Brian
Great to explore around here, John! Nice shot smile
