This is a fabulous thread with some fascinating photos and history on it. I find myself, as I get older, hankering after the past and after simpler times, before towns were ruined by corporations and shopping malls - greed, in other words. As long as there are photos like these about, I can remwember that things weren't always this bad!

This is an old structure called The Guildhall.

Not exactly dilapidated but well worth a look ....



The Guildhall has had many uses and lives to date. The Great Hall itself was built in about 1390 as a meeting place for the Guild of Corpus Christi (a small but powerful group of businessman and gentry). When the Guild was dissolved in 1548 the Corporation bought the buildings and in 1632 the Town Library was moved into the East Wing of the Guildhall from St Martin' s Church. It is apparently the third oldest public library in the country. The Great Hall was often used as a courtroom and was also used regularly for theatrical performances, banquets and civic events..... hmmm .... I can see a very distinct connection forming here



It is also thought that Shakespeare actually performed here. (This is not Stratford Upon Avon BTW, its actually a building found in Leicester town centre tucked away on one of the backstreets).

For the next fifty years the Guildhall was used for several purposes including the headquarters of the local police and a school. Following a major renovation programme it was then opened to the public as a museum in 1926.

The Guildhall has a well-founded reputation of being a haunted building and has featured on Living TV's 'Most Haunted'. If you have an interest (and the nerve) to spend an evening in a haunted building, can you believe that the general public can actually take part in a 'Ghost Watch' at the Guildhall or Leicester Castle.

Scary but very true.




edit: BTW I meant to add if anybody is actually interested in historical buildings and backgrounds I can post more but I dont want to bore you all if its of no real interest to anyone.

With an architect/construction related background I'm a huge fan of these things.

And this one is the most unique uses of an old boxcar I've ever seen. This was on a dirt road in southern Oklahoma, just a little southeast of Ardmore. The ends of the boxcar were cut out and left in the field accross the creek. It's probably the only steel covered bridge in America.
