A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
On my walk round the block I always stop at the bottom of Wroxham Gardens and look across Durnsford Road - and imagine I am in Halifax or Burnley.
Well, it's a huge leap of the imagination, but you have to admit that the strange industrial chimney and the way the houses behind climb up the hill could fool you into believing you were back up north (apart from the mock-Tudor).
I was curious about this strange chimney, so today I went over Durnsford Road and managed to find it.
It's a really run-down building, all corrugated iron roofs and flimsy fading walls - but it has a dishevelled, romantic charm.
I took some pics and would love to know if anyone could tell me a bit about its history. A sign out front says that it is host to 'Visual Packaging Ltd' and despite its run-down exterior there was some activity going on.
