Seller: dumpman1 (4,967) 100%, Location: Henfield, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 122213887620 Haywards Heath Bus Depot Glass Bricks In July 2015, the station area at Haywards Heath is in the process of being redeveloped. Against the wishes of some, the old Southdown bus depot building is being demolished. With a nod to art deco styling, this building went up in 1954, the most striking feature being a beautiful curved staircase surrounded by a huge wall of glass bricks. During the demolition process, I made friends with the guys working on the site and was lucky enough to get hold of some of these bricks. Many didn't survive being pulled down by the digger, but happily a handful did. I also got to do a tour of the inside of the building before demolition started to take a load of photos, which are on the cd that you will receive. This is your chance to own an unusual piece of Haywards Heath history. The unmistakeable sight of the old bus depot building that was the most memorable view near the station will never now be seen again, but you can own an iconic piece of it. Each brick measures 7 and 3/4" (19.5cm) square and is 3 and 3/4" (9.5cm) deep. Expect some rough edges, minor chips etc as the demolition process was pretty unforgiving, but essentially what you are getting is what appears in the photos. The photos in this listing show the building before demolition, internally and externally and during the demolition process. In addition to your glass brick, you will receive a cd of photos taken all around the inside and outside of the building before it came down. Ideal for the local history enthusiast or long term resident or simply anyone who is interested in architecture. Collection is ideal, but I can post or even deliver in the Mid Sussex area for an agreed fee. Collection can be made from either Haywards Heath or Henfield. Delivery can be discussed. Any bricks posted will be securely packed to ensure safe passage, but because of their hefty weight this is quite expensive, even on an economy service. Any questions do ask. Auction is for one brick and one cd of photos. Material: Glass/ Cut Glass
