“Amazing place in the process of renovation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Well worth seeing, not a polished finished attraction at all, but an incredible building that should be seen. Enthusiast to show you round & they need your help !

“Research for a better viewing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

The building is currently under construction so there is limited viewing.

To make for better understanding of the building, perhaps read up about it before viewing.

Interested to see how this develops!

“Derelict”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

We expected the first iron framed building to be in better shape than this. It is derelict and you can’t actually tour the building. Perhaps they will make repairs so that people can enjoy the history of this building.

Fascinating old building and informative guides. Hope that the funding for the next stage is forthcoming.
