Doxford gatehouse

shame, I heard that they were going to reopen the yards after brexit. would've been a canny nod to the town's rich heritage, keeping the gatehouse

One of the mentalist things I've read on here complaining that it wasn't all going to be saved and restored.

Absolute rot. There was nothing architecturally significant about it. It had some history as being the entrance to a place of work (where most people probably fucking hated) where we built ships. They have saved the gates and the arch - the historically significant bit.
you ,my fried , have never had the pleasure of walking through it or working in the offices... Palestine...sorry Phillystine

To keep the whole thing they would have had to practically rebuild it from scratch. When something is that dilapidated then it needs to be a fairly major building to make it worthwhile. The gatehouse didn't really qualify in this respect. Sad but not a disaster.
