Checking my watch

(no subject)

I have never seen a building with so much potential so tragically ruined as the Nutbourne pumping station. A so called "restoration" left me wondering why the architect didn't just buy a plot of land and build his ugly 3 bedroom bungalow on that instead of destroying every single interesting feature of the pumping station.

It had a truly wonderful and remarkable interior... now it doesn't.
