[QUOTE=Serenity]As much as new building are all very nice and offer more up to date facilities they can't bring with them a rich colourful past and the beauty that only our historical buildings can offer. [/QUOTE]
I am of the same opinion as Serenity. Unfortunately I don't have the money to be able to buy dilapidated properties and do them up, however hopefully in the future I may be able to do so. I'd love to buy a property, restore it to it's former glory (structure wise, not necessarily the same business), sell it and move onto the next project (even if I just about managed to break even on each project).

[QUOTE=pickers]We would never have even looked at such a project if it had been of real local interest and I am sure if any other developers felt it had the potential to refurbish in its existing form then they would have gone for it. Unfortunately the sad fact was there was little interest in the building to be left as it stands as there is no room for anymore pubs or takeaway food shops it appears on the A6. [/QUOTE]
Just out of interest, how is a building like this deemed to be of little or no interest? I'm guessing no offers for a certain length of time or something, but I don't really know. How long had that place been on the market? I guess this is all stuff I will learn if I do eventually get enough capital to start looking for places to buy and do up.
