Very impressive looking buildings, good photo, there are some interesting assembly rooms up there.


Comment by Mick on 1st June 2015 at 07:03
Wallgate is starting to look nice again and now they are working on the old Pooles cafe and the Victoria pub


Comment by Garry on 1st June 2015 at 09:01
Nice one Brian, run down buildings come back to life.


Comment by kath on 1st June 2015 at 09:20
It's a great building. We don't take the time to look up often enough do we?


Comment by P.W. on 1st June 2015 at 09:26
Ken R. do you mean the former Masonic Hall? or Ku Klux Klan as they are know to some.


Comment by Jinksi on 1st June 2015 at 15:57

You're right, Kath. We look up at the architecture in towns we visit, but not our own. We have some beautiful buildings.


Comment by MarieM on 1st June 2015 at 19:35
jinksi, no it is further up near the GPO. Apparently, there was a strong smell in Wallgate but everyone thought it was coming from the Brewery at the side of the GPO


Comment by Joseph on 1st June 2015 at 23:03
KenR...To refer to Freemasons as Being members of the KLU Klux Klan ..is a Racist remark as far as i am concerned ..You are ignorant as to what a lot of good this society does in the form of charity to hundreds of needy people etc...And should not be compared to those dreadful killers!(No i an not s freemason)


Comment by Ken R on 2nd June 2015 at 03:30
Joseph... Where did your remarks come from, I have not mentioned Masons or KKK. take another look at my comments of 00.16.


Comment by Garry on 2nd June 2015 at 20:17
I think that Joseph bloke should apologize to Ken R, he's bang out of order.


Comment by Joseph on 2nd June 2015 at 22:39
Sorry Ken I misread the message..and apologise...


Comment by Ken R on 4th June 2015 at 00:47
Joseph, apology accepted. I am not ignorant of the good things that are done.


Comment by P.G. on 4th June 2015 at 09:54
The reference to Ku Klux Klan is definitely not a racist remark, if anything it is taking a swipe at that obnoxious organisation.
