The derelict former Trident Life Offices in London Road Gloucester have been a dilapidated eyesore for years.  The plan is to eventually knock the remaining building down and replace it with thirty flats as part of a regeneration project. Another vacant ex office block, with broken windows and one that’s been empty for over ten years is the Land Registry in Bruton way.

Let’s return to a building of beauty, glory and grace, the Gothic Revival Woodchester Mansion house in Stonehouse, established in 1870.  Even though this structure was abandoned in the middle of construction and appears to be a stunning, completed home, it has no floors and whole rooms are missing, it’s still well worth a visit.
