From Andre:

"Derby once had a large railway industrial park in the 1800 and a lot of it was demolished during the 60s-80 to make new buildings.

But there is on part left of the railway shed and work offies which is called the roundhouse the building is very derelict in places but on top of this wonderful building is a two sided clock from 1800 the building was closed down in the 1980S and has never been used since then.

There have been plans for this building to turn it into hotels then into the new derby university. but i think that this building should be restored to its former glory.

iam only 15 but i also collect clocks and pocket watches and i hate to see them in abused conditions.

yours sincerly

Andre".
