London Help Me Please

How to make a small claims court action. If you don't know, somebody will. If you have a London travel question, put it in 'Travel'

Help Me Please TOWER HOUSE Fieldgate Street  

Does anyone know anthing about the Tower House on Fieldgate Street? It is the huge old building next to the Kebab house - seems derelict. I live behind it and am desperate to find out what it used to be and what's happening with it. It's such an amazing building but really eerie with all the smashed windows and such - surely squatters living there - just plucking up the courage to go inside and have a look........

I've been inside recently, its derelict obviously.. there are signs of recent habitation judging by the smell on some floors and the amount of smackhead gear around.. though we saw no-one. The building was a Union Workhouse and later a hospital.. Apparently Stalin stayed there one time..

Yeah, it was so pretty once. I found out about it after moving nearby but was too late to see it as it's now covered in plastic. I guess you know they're turning it into flats and what not.

Help Me Please Tower House  

This building used to be a hostel for homeless men. I was one of their clients in the early '80's.
I do not know what they are doing with it, now.

Like you all I would love to know more about this huge building - it is like something out of gormanghast - does anyone know more than the fact that it was once a workhouse and hospital. The windows all seem to be long and narrow and yet it has this moulded entrance. If Stalin stayed here was it a hotel? It now seems to be guarded and well lit up with floodlights etc. we asked and were told maybe it is being converted into flats.

Help Me Please here you go  

although it seems (unfortunately) to be getting gentrified in the extreme.
