Raven Hotel seems an uninviting name to me. i suppose because of Edgar Allan Poe's writings and other associated things with ravens.

i like your vantage point which shows the facade detailing
Bill Phillips: The Raven is a much seen logo in Droitwich. This is because the man who was known as the salt king (he made his fortune from the brine the the town sits on) was John Corbett . his name is an English version of the French Courbeau which is crow....but raven sounds better grin
Hey I've walked past this! It would be nice if some rich guy would make his money useful and fix it up!
Bill Phillips: If only E. The building contains asbestos and that adds hugely to the cost of any potential project
Needs some t.l.c. thats all Bill.
Bill Phillips: This is the part that is a listed building. what is going to happen to the building is still unknown. There are many problems with redeveloping the site, not least of which is asbestos.

Jolie maison ancienne.

I really hope someone would DO SOMETHING with this fine building!

Other than knock it down..
Bill Phillips: This is the part that is a listed building. what is going to happen to the building is still unknown. There are many problems with redeveloping the site not the least of which is that they have found asbestos in large parts of the rest of the hotel building

It is a shame that such a fine building has been allowed to get t this stage. It would be make a nice facade for a Premier Inn or similar.
Bill Phillips: There was hope that Wetherspoons would buy it but they made it clear they would not

Our parliamentary government wont be able to help in making the right decision for its future.
Bill Phillips: We don't seem to have a government
Is this the large building you drove us past that you said is now closed and nobody knows what to do with it because it is listed? So nothing has still happened as yet then.
Bill Phillips: That's the one Brian. It is a sad sight
The parks and landscapes always interest me more than buildings. I do see a bit of nice glass.
Bill Phillips: This building is very much a town landmark and will be missed when it goes
Hope something can be done to save it, Bill. Looks to have been a nice hotel in its time. Asbestos is nasty.
Bill Phillips: It was Beverly. For a number of years we used to hold our Lions Charter anniversary dinner there and they always made it feel a very special occasion with full silver service and excellent food
Buy a paint pot and make your mark as a restoration man.
Bill Phillips: Strewth Martin....I can barely find time to paint the house!
