    Its an amazig old building. I rememebr the countless hours helping to renovate it about 21 years ago. The towers and castillations are not original they are probaly a couple of hundred years old but there is a very old manor house in the main part of the building. Its actually quite attractive indoors. It was also a Church of Scotland for a number of years.

    Incidently I fitted that alarm bell on the tower in the pic.

    I am going to write to the paper just to underline some of the vicar's comments. I will share before I send it in.

    George, got your PM thanks, you have a reply.

    I just noticed this clause in the planning consent -

    There shall be no amplified speech or music within or outside the building.

    I wonder how they will get around that one?

    Cofty, Just heard the new KH has been built and is in use. Is it the usual bland featureless, windowless quick build?

    The vicar's vain attempts to stop the building didn't work. I love it when one pompous element attacks another pompous element.

    Yes the new quick build is in use. It has a few windows but I think they are corridors and toilets. I was surpirsed how long it took them to finish the job after the quick-build team left. Weeks went by when there was nothing happening. I guess its down to the same few locals to do the work.

    The renovation of the old kingdom hall is almost finished. Its going to be an art gallery/house/music venue etc. The new owners are doing a great job I'm looking forward to having a look around. They are going to call it the Berwick Watchtower.
