The reason I posted this topical little story is because these buildings that once belonged to the Royal Hospital, were situated adjacent to my office that fronts the old Printing Business of John Neave in Gordon Street, All Saints.
As I mentioned in the story. The site and the buildings have stood neglected for the last 20 years since the Royal Hospital transferred its business to New Cross.
During which time John and I have looked on and endured the noise and nuisance as the once fine Cleveland House and its adjoining buildings have been torn apart inside by numerous metal thieves and, as I said before; with doors and windows broken and removed it became of late the roost of pigeons and the home of urban foxes
Below the old cellar head.
