Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 14th December, 2019)
Standish Leisure centre
That building has all the character of a bin-bag. It looks like a child has built it out of Lego.
What a delightful piece of architecture. Standish folks must be delighted.
Good photo - but the structure resembles a shipping container with windows.
I remember when a piece of chalk was a leisure centre.
I wonder if this is the finished article. The building looks much different on the leisure centre web site where a sort of wooden cladding has been added.
What a monstrosity
Awful.... Looks like corrugated cardboard...
I fully agree with Irene, Lego blocks or tin man's house.
No character in buildings today, it's all about speed.
I need a sherry.
Irenes comment made me laugh...
jj had a touch of irony...
& I totally agreed with Gary.
I think architects must have very thick skins & also be hard of hearing !!
Oh, that is gross, how on earth did they get permission for it to be built, I can imagine the local folks who bought expensive houses around there will be livid, I know I wouldn't like to keep seeing it, and why does everything now have be painted in battleship grey, is the MOD selling off its overstock.
Looks good if we get invaded then they can use it has a bunker wth machine gun turrets.
Looks like something from an industrial estate.I wonder if it looks better from the other side.
wigan planning aproved
Be fair Irene, a bin bag has masses of character compared with this!
It could probably be improved by painting it in those zany first word war battleship camouflage designs.
Pour me a sherry too, please, Garry! xx
I tried to put up some good words to describe this thingy, but failed. Perhaps Poet can string something together?
Absolutely horrible !I find it hard to believe that got planning permission.
I'll bet the Architect was toiling and sweating over this design for as much as a whole hour,
Garry's re-cycling bin must be full to the brim with Sherry bottles! I bet the fire is heaped up with coal too... ;@))
Thanks Irene and Veronica, the coal fire is roaring well. The drinks are on me ladies, cheers.
I've booked us a taxi to Garry's, Veronica. xxx
Let me know what time Irene, it's that time of year again......I'll bring a toasting fork...
Don't let your body go to seed
For Standish folk we can guarantee,
That after four weeks training hard,
You'll look far better than this façade,
But not so fair as yesterday,
When in the meadow's waving sway,
You tied your boots and roamed and hiked
With never a thought for an exercise bike.
Ha ha what are you both like, cheers. I've plenty coal, bread and sherry.
I like crumpets and 'nibbles' Garry
Ok done Veronica, it's a deal.
Garry's going to have nose bleed.
Banter Alan thats all.
That's right, Ron; Marked-out our own playing surfaces we did.
