It's true

The shopping centre is a monstrosity.

I heard JPaul was involved in building some sites down here though. It was probably an evil ploy from the Croyians :angry:

Crojans (to sound like Trojans)

you wacky spaniards and your places with funny names :rolleyes:

I'm sure I see a TV programme about this place some time ago,
I don't think they will pull it down as this is just a publicly stunt to get more people to shop there.

Is that where the Cumbernauld sausage comes from?

Erm, no Baz, they're genuinly pulling down the old shopping centre. Good thing too. It is a bit of an eyesore.

But in return we get 2 new ones :D

With H&M and TKMaxx and everything and everything!

Shame, i think it should be made a listed building, I'm into architecture.
It's a Typical example of a building gone wrong, and i'm being honest you are quite lucky to have it removed.
I bet you will have some protesters to save it, people are odd like that.

what about the Cumbernauld sausage?

I think you're confusing that with a CumberLAND sausage.

CumberNAULD sausages would probably have sawdust in them :lol:

I did see this on the TV at one time, Channel 4 TV programme 'Demolition'
Some good pictures, it is an amazing building
Thanks for the info on the Sausages, I thought I would not get them no more, what am i like. :lol:

The funny thing is...
when you're inside that shopping centre it's like a maze.
It took me aaaaages to figure out how to get through it and sometimes I still get lost and have to make a huge detour.
i think it's magic :lol:

Cool Sonja :lol:
This picture is best, I want to protest to save it, it's far out! wow

Very posh :D
