Photo: Work starts at the Kibble Palace..

The Kibble Palace opened in 1873 - and it is now shut for refurbishment until 2006. The cast iron frame will be back, fully restored, but the glass will be gone for good - and with it part of the character and romance of the building.

The Kibble when it opens again will be 'good as new'; now is the time to say goodbye to 130 years of dirt, rust and grime, and the (slightly younger) weeds that take root in every crevices between glass and frame. And say hello to a shiny new tourist attaction.

I wonder were the fish are going?

The photograph above looks a bit blurry because I took while peering through one of the dirty panes of glass to the left the main entrance.

Photo: Kibble Palace glass with white paint.

The white paint used to shield the plants from strong sun - turns the glass into individual pieces of abstract art.

A wander around the building reveals plenty of rust and peeling paint.
