Observed from the Millennium Bridge. Disc assumed to be at the top of the tower and inaccessible. Tower is covered in scaffolding and unclear if the flagstaff is present or if the vertical lines are scaffold.

(899) Closer inspection to the area possible now that the bulk of work completed. Checked out the main building, as well as the clock tower. Which today was covered in scaffolding, and hidden behind pink and yellow safety/debris netting.

Stump of flagstaff still visible on top of the main building though the clock tower looks much more interesting. Lots of building activity going on which was is good to see, this site has been idle for far too long.

Sad to see this building empty. The clock tower is the most visible feature from a distance and the grid ref suggests that this, rather than the main facade, was the location of the flagstaff. Approach from N across the racecourse car park gives a close view.

As CJO can only see what looks like the stump of a flagpole.

SE44 INT006 FLAGSTAFF and DISC. This could be on the main building or on the clock tower - its was impossible to get close enough due to fencing and race goers to be sure. There is a stump visible above the main building entrance, although clock tower is much taller. This was Terry's chocolate factory. Site is now being developed into modern business units.
