Vulcan Building, Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth
Vulcan Building, Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth
Built in 1814 as a naval storehouse, the clock tower and north wing were burnt out in the blitz of 1941. It then lay vacant for fity years until restored by Berkeley Festival Waterfront Company as part of the Portsmouth Harbour Millennium Project. It is now partly residential and partly a contemporary art gallery. LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )

The blue building behind, just going up, is Number 1 Gunwharf Quays which, although nice enough in itself, rather spoils the outline of the Vulcan building.
