Hope springs…

October 10, 2018

I was trying to find Ian Gillan‘s old hotel complex the other day as someone wanted to visit, and looking at the web map sites the guitar shaped swimming pool appears to be still in situ; not quite viewable from space but almost!  But it seems the hotel itself might be struggling. It closed a couple of years ago, was reopened to offer deals for golfers using the near-by course, but has not been able to compete with online booking site discounting. There seems to be no operating website. Mike Galway says he saw some film of it on the BBC recently shot by someone who had sneaked inside (one of those empty building explorer types; I’m saying nothing). Not sure if he took his trunks or if there is water in the famous pool – it looks a bit green here.  If anyone lives around that way let us know.
