Boots - Problem

The whole frontage of Boots was taped off with Police Incident Tape this afternoon - anyone have any knowledge of what was going on?

Re: Boots - Problem

The council asked the police to tape it off. Apparently there is some loose masonry on Boots

What do you expect?

If you don't look after your Boots you will end up will end up with no sole.

It's good to know the council can get the police to fulfil a role. You never know they may be catching criminals soon

Re: Boots - Problem

The facing tiles at the top of the apex are lifting off so the whole frontage of Boots is fenced off - prescription are available at the rear of the store.

That 'crack' from the centre window to above the right hand window looks interesting as well. Obviously the motar has failed but it looks as if there is some displacement as well.

Looks like the place is falling apart - better have a word with the guys who built Rome's colliseum their motar seems to be passing the test of time.

Re: Boots - Problem

I reported that problem 8 years ago when I was store manager there. Those windows are in the staffroom and were leaking in badly way back then. If they haven't acted on the very obvious problem in all that time it's no wonder they now have a structural issue like that.The water was coming into the building from above the windows, I would suggest the roof has failed and the rain has got into the brickwork, frozen, expanded and then thawed.
maxthecollie and Accyexplorer like this.

I think it may be quite a while before you have a Boots again, I'd think that whole frontage will have to come down.
The stains on the brickwork, the apex bricks moving and the crack shows how bad the problem is.

Oops, wrong again!

That's good news. Is there another entrance or have they put some sort of safety structure up?
