Nothing to add other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition - that is more than can be said of the building which is still up for sale.

FB still looking OK on this derelict building. (01.03.14) Building currently for sale with planning permission for "Conversion of Bristol Mill into 32 stunning luxury apartments". Hope FB survives the renovation.

Wright & Jobson no longer appear to be trading. This building is now boarded up. The FB faces an uncertain future.
