RE: Tales of the Urban Explorer: Pendleton House

Might be preferable to be a few minutes late after a demolition than a few minutes before and inside!

It was very grand indeed though, that is exactly the property that turns into Flats up here. The problem is, they keep the facade then make the same old homogenous new build insides


a few minutes late after a demolition than a few minutes before and inside!

Oh, I'm not too fussy, you should see some of the gems I have coming up. Not even a cool staircase in sight!

It will be overpriced flats, it's central and desirable.

The world needs more grand staircases. I worked for a global accountancy firm once and they had a head office staffed entirely full of Tory fuckwits that I had to go down to London to work in a few times. It had the most ridiculously grand staircase ever. The whole office was a sham tho. Nothing got done there apart from poshos drinking at their desks and smoking

The gems will be gems with it without staircases! Probably without given the state of some of thee wrecks

You have witnessed their slothenly ways? I worked within the House of Parliament during the noughties. In the summer they have what they call recess before parliament is opened again.

A recess is a break during the parliamentary session (year) in which neither the House of Commons or the House of Lords meets to conduct business. There are usually several recesses throughout a session and usually include Christmas, Easter and Summer. Recess is formally known as a periodic adjournment.

It's not a short break, its most of the fucking summer and the palace is pretty much empty of MP's. A long skive is a better word for it.
