Silverthorne Lane, St Philip's, Bristol 2
The fire-damaged remains of a warehouse at St. Vincent's Works (a.k.a. Lysaght's Castle). The main, castellated, office block that has been jokingly referred to as in "Ruritanian Romanesque” style in the distance - at the junction ahead - remains intact and is currently “To Let”. This Grade II-listed building made headlines news in the UK in 2006 when it was destroyed in a fire. Aardman Animations kept props and film sets associated with the Wallace and Gromit films in the warehouse, many of which were destroyed. The intact part of the building was, until recently, the head office of the renewable energy consultancy GL Garrad Hassan. Pedestrians continuing ahead - along Silverthorne Lane - can reach Temple Meads Railway Station within 10 minutes.
