Derelict Woodvale Grot Spot Still Shaming Southport

1st November 2016

Woodvale’s dilapidated eyesore, the disused Brook building in Sandbrook Way, is falling to pieces.

Woodvale’s rotting grot spot, the disused Brook building is disintegrating even further.

Pictures taken today (1st November 2016) clearly show more unsecured material ready to fall  off this eyesore.

How long will it be before a pedestrian is injured (or worse) by falling building materials hitting them on the head?

Who exactly will be legally responsible for potential personal injury claims/compensation, due to lack of health and safety measures not being in place, at this widely- accessible site.

Apart from securing kicked in doors, no actions to make the eyesore safe in any way for the public have been taken.

Sefton Council has been fully aware about the dangerous state of the building for years.



The picture below shows a large piece of cladding that previously fell off this dangerous eyesore back in 2014. Thankfully, no injuries were reported.
