West Cliff Concert Hall (again)

West Cliff Concert HallAnother nice view of the West Cliff Concert Hall and the Royal Crescent. Click on the picture for a larger view. Just to the right of the Concert Hall are yet more windows, under the roadway in fact - was there a tunnel from the Churchill (or whatever the building on the corner was back then)? Or did the Hall reach sideways?



All my West Cliff piccies on Flickr . . .






*And Also* in one of those coincidences that show that there is just one brain available for use in blogging and we all share it in turn, East Cliff Richard has just mentioned a fabulous web site with photos of the rather disastrous interior of West Cliff Hall. So - with due acknowledgement to ECR - have a look at Broken Britain (just do a search for Ramsgate) - especially Motor Museum visit 1 and Motor Museum visit 2, and also the Marina Restaurant while you're at it. Then explore the rest of the site for adventures through abandoned buildings... grrrreat...

**And Also, part 2** It's in the comments, but easier to click through here - Michael Child has provided a link to his set of photos of the former Motor Museum. More old cars than architecture in the photos of course, but at least the building was alive... Thanks Michael.

It looked so much better when it just had the cliff face.

You may find the pictures that my wife and I took inside when it was still the motor museum interesting. I am afraid this was in the early days of digital cameras so the definition is not as good as it would be today. http://www.thanetonline.com/RamsgateMotorMuseum/index.htm
