According to the walk I was following (can't remember the name of the book it was taken from, nor the author I'm afraid, I'm sure he posts here though), the original swallow gardens is one of the now closed-off archways on the right at the end of the railway bridge shown in the photo. Actually, all the shutters across the arches were open, and we peered into them all. They were mostly full of cars, tools, and the like.
We were also able to access the former Dorset Street, where the shop/warehouse shutters were also open, so we got a glimpse of two of the sites that are normally out of sight.
Hope this helps! Cheers, H.

I took these photos about a month back... The first two are of Christ Church Parish Hall on Hanbury Street (I think). Then I few I took on Toynbee Street of my favorite abandoned building in the area. (Anyone know what is the deal with this abandoned building? I have a vision of artist lofts... And who is Daniel Stone?) And finally one of what I think is a section of Castle Alley... is that correct?

Hey Rob,

Its Angel Alley, of Pearly Poll fame, not Castle Alley.


Hey Krinoid,

I don't recall the Pedley Street actually being closed. Could you be confusing it with Woods Buildings? If it was closed then I assume it was temporary for the new tube works which were finished a couple of years ago.

Harry,

Swallow gardens is currently being rented out (for a stationary company). It may be worth taking a wander down there Friday evenings as it seems they clean their vehicles at that time and you can get a real good peek inside.


For those who are interested, London Job 2012 is soon to be announced.

Cheers
Monty

Thanks Neil. Do you know anything about that abandoned building on Toynbee St? I assume it is scheduled for demolition probably (unfortunately).

No, I am thinking of Pedley Street and there was blog on it on the web saying a ot of it was being removed(maybe just the footbridge and conncection to brick lane)?
Anyone have current pics of the area? you can't access it on google maps from any direction, I think I took pics of the wrong bridge on Pedley street when a taxi took me.

Hey Rob,

Not sure. There are plans being put forward for the demolition of Whites Row car park, which is nearby, and a new building going up in place.

Im due that way in a few weeks, I shall have a look for you.

Kinroid,

Taken in October last year.
