Recent coverage of Seafield House in online press

The Mail Online recently published an article showing photographs of the decaying interiors of Seafield House.  The images show the very sad state of the building with rotten ceilings and floors, with mould and damp and exposed brickwork.

Unfortunately the article contains several inaccuracies and fails to mention Friends of Seafield House (FoSH), and the campaigning  FoSH has done  with SAVE Britiain’s Heritage to ensure that the house is not destroyed.  FoSH continue to push for progress on development of Seafield House and hope that action will be taken soon before what remains of the architectural detail decays beyond restoration.

FoSH would urge people not to attempt to enter the building.  Not only is the structure very unsafe, but the creation of entry points into the buildings will encourage others to go inside who could cause further damage, either accidentally or on purpose.

If you would like to do something to help Seafield House then support the work of FoSH and follow our news and events online.
