Show me awesome buildings from where you live(d)

Obv this thread was pretty much made for @Scout with the love for her city, although i might secretly be hoping to snare @penoid back


#2

majestic


#3

not clear which of these you’re repping bud, and that makes a huge difference to my endorsement


#4

My hometown went a bit crazy with the ol’ big white tents thing when the Millennium Dome was going up

They are not good.


#5

they look extremely butlins


#6

Cathedral in front, roman castle behind.

UTI, of course.

Load of shite aren’t they, and also they only last like 25 years or something so they’ll be due replacing soon


#10

quite nice, as carpet factories go


#11

This is basicaly nextdoor to where I live. I think it’s the largest spherical building in the world

Egyptian-style mill building in Leeds about a 10 min walk from my flat

IT WORKED! There’s a hidden western street in Edinburgh :smiley:


#16

Haha! My mate lives about two doors along from there and we were wandering about in there when we got back pissed one night.


#17

Yeah I used to live up the road from in various flats and only really discovered it after I’d left!


#18

There’s a pretty cool old college at the end of my road but virtually impossible to show you using streetview as there’s a tree in the way/gate/wall in the way from every angle. It’s not so much the building that’s amazing but the fact it’s just tucked away at the end of a ordinary street in the suburbs and no one ever knows it’s there.

Not really much of note where I am, but I do quite like these:

(the modernist Quaker Meeting House)

and the mosaics, in the station

Both Corby, one on either side of the road. The former is obviously hideous. The latter divides opinion. Personally, I like it.
