Comment:
Although not elaborate this building is still somewhat impressive, with its gables and stone framed windows. After standing for approximately two hundred years it was cast aside like an old boot - yet another casualty of "Authoritarian Vandalism". Could it have been saved. Or did it fall victim to the blinkered "Concrete and Glass Mindset" of the time.
