    Another building is being pulled down. I don't think it looks that bad, but the photographer could just have done a good job of making it look that way: https://www.coventrytelegraph.net/ne...ntrys-14723531

    I've never had a problem with that building. However, I don't believe it has ever been fully occupied since it was built.

    Those toilets should never have been closed. Coventry has very few public toilets, in fact, if I needed them whilst in the city centre I really don't know where any are.

    City of culture without any toilets - That's Coventry!

    And as for filling them with concrete, that's going to cost a bloody fortune. Those toilets were quite a size!

    We were only on the list to make the numbers up.

    My bet is Manchester will get it. - It makes sense as BBC's media city is there.

    The 'We Love Concrete' set have thrown their hat in the ring: https://www.coventrytelegraph.net/ne...entry-15197874

    Interesting. I have to say I agree with several of their points. Nice that they agree about the removal of the escalator though. - IIRC, that was put in on the demand of Branson's Virgin empire.

    I can only say that I'd not want to live there!
