Lack of maintainence has certainley taken its toll on the building, has the regeneration project now been abandoned or is it still going ahead as I haven't heard about it for a while now. I don't think I have seen this pediment before Brian, but then again you don't tend to look up when you are going past.

Remember this building well from when I worked in it. Pity it was'nt turned into luxury flats like some in Bolton.
Maybe when the council gets the money, to either refurbish or change the structure.

Dont hold your breath Dorothy, the Council only good at demolishing buildings.
