My uncle used to live there! Very pricey apartments up top, and you still get the odd local murder
Hundertwasser <3 <3
An FB friend has just posted this because it looks (and apparently sounds) like a horror film today (not sure where she lives, somewhere Sarf London)
Here’s another building from the concrete heyday of New Town Runcorn. I’m sure there were secret nuclear things happening there back in the day
OMG it's part of a science lab and used to have a particle accelerator in it. Obsessed now
Reminds me of Cheese lane shot tower from 1969 here, which I believe is grade II listed.
I also love this abandoned water tower here in a similar vein.
Water towers are sex.
Colchester has a giant Victorian water tower slap bang in the middle of the town centre. Not a brutalised masterpiece but a curio nonetheless. I think I was quite old when I realised this isn't normal.
We've got a lovely Victorian one here as well. In a residential area, but right at the top of one of the city's many hills, so you can see it from most of the south of the city.
As a Kent-raised bitch I have to love a Martello Tower as well. Fuck knows why they built a car park around this one.
Actually, just google image searching that, and I think water towers could warrant an entirely separate discussion. Look at these beauties!
On the opposite scale of concreteopia, here’s the Norton water tower - a more classical structure on the opposite hill. I lived between the water tower and the science lab.
Sheffield water tower
ACTUAL WIDE-ON for this one
The local water tower back home <3
Early 19th century Cammo House water tower in Edinburgh.
Ooh here we go girls, the British Water Tower Appreciation Society
Lucky old Dereham in Norfolk has two together
As does Diss - I used to walk past these on my way to work.
Oh yes I forgot to say we call it Jumbo.
Christians owned it in the 1980s. I remember this.
This is really the sort of image search I normally get caught up in at around 2am on a Sunday morning
SO MUCH to enjoy in that photo.
Another Swedish one
The remnants of Sheffield Airport now a BUSINESS PARK
I'm sure I've flown from there!
Oh no it was Doncaster Sheffield which was strangely called Doncaster Robin Hood Airport for a while. Give over.
The plane was that dead we just did ket in our seats and drank duty free vodka, the stewardesses had no reason to walk the plane.
I feel a bit SORRY for Doncaster Airport, East Midlands is just down the road and 10x better in every SHAPE and FORM.
MORE HERE PLEASE
Has the Prague TV tower graced this thread yet?
Also: upside down house in Brighton
Yes Tisch, it's literally the first post when go back a page.
What about the dancing house?
Let's have 'the crooked house' in Sopot, Poland. Genuinely makes me feel kind of seasick looking at it.
I was dragged to the Dancing House by a friend, we stayed for about a minute, he took a pic and left. It's seriously unimpressive up close (and when it's a miserable November morning and you're hungover and stuck having an awkward conversation with his German boyfriend who just keeps saying he doesn't like 'this kind of things') or so I hear.
You need to do a Google image search to really appreciate it.
