Site of Post Office sorting office, Carfax Close, Swindon
There was once a not particularly lovely building just beyond the white fence that served as a large sorting office. I can't remember anyone mourning its passing. According to Google Earth it was still there on 21 October 2003 but by 12 September 2005 it had gone. The site will one day be re-developed but the present recessionary times have put much of Swindon's regeneration plans on hold. The modern building on the left is a health centre. The gable end is a hairdresser's salon in Volta Road, on the edge of the Victorian housing area known now as Broad Green. Just visible on the extreme right is the Jurys Inn hotel LinkExternal link
