Drove by and it appears the whole building has been demolished. Base of walls hidden behind boarding but its surely gone.

Visited on 8th November 2005 by Calico. Condition: Probably destroyed.
House survives but ground floor converted to shops with new fronts which have almost certainly destroyed the fb. Might just survive under tile work.
