Just found these pictures online of the inside of the Mechanics' Institute from 2010 and 2011 of the state of the building

You can just imagine how much worse things are now 3+ years down the line... :(
I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it - [attributed to] Voltaire... 'Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessita' - William of Occam.... 'You have a right to feel offended, but just cos you are offended doesn't mean you are right'

The place is a mess, there are stories it would have cost £££ to fix structural issues with it back in the 80's, so I dread to think how much it would cost to fix and renovate now!

I'd like to get see some independent (i.e. not hired by MI Trust) architects and stuctural engineers come in and say how much it'll cost to fix the structural issues and then how much it'll cost to do anything with it.  Unless something like that is done chances are no lottery funding bid would be successful.
