Synopsis

______________________________

The huge word-of-mouth bestseller - completely updated for 2019



THE LONDON THAT TOURISTS DON'T SEE



Look beyond Big Ben and past the skyscrapers of the Square Mile, and you will find another London. This is the land of long-forgotten tube stations, burnt-out mansions and gently decaying factories. Welcome to DERELICT LONDON: a realm whose secrets are all around us, visible to anyone who cares to look . . .



Paul Talling - our best-loved investigator of London's underbelly - has spent over fifteen years uncovering the stories of this hidden world. Now, he brings together 100 of his favourite abandoned places from across the capital: many of them more magnificent, more beautiful and more evocative than you can imagine.



Covering everything from the overgrown stands of Leyton Stadium to the windswept alleys of the Aylesbury Estate, DERELICT LONDON reveals a side of the city you never knew existed.



It will change the way you see London.

PRAISE FOR THE DERELICT LONDON PROJECT



`Fascinating images showing some of London's eeriest derelict sites show another side to the busy, built-up capital.' Daily Mail



`Talling has managed to show another side to the capital, one of abandoned buildings that somehow retain a sense of beauty.' Metro



`Excellent . . . As much as it is an inadvertent vision of how London might look after a catastrophe, DERELICT LONDON is valuable as a document of the one going on right in front of us.' New Statesman



`From the iconic empty shell of Battersea Power Station to the buried `ghost' stations of the London Underground, the city is peppered with decaying buildings. Paul Talling knows these places better than anyone in the capital.' Daily Express



`[London has an] unusual (and deplorable) number of abandoned buildings. Paul Talling's surprise bestseller, DERELICT LONDON, is their shabby Pevsner.' Daily Telegraph



______________________________

Paul Talling first became interested in derelict buildings in 2003, after witnessing the demolition of an old candle factory in Battersea. Later that year, he set up derelictlondon.com, a website that collects photos and stories of the capital's abandoned spots. Since then, the website has received 2 million views, won numerous awards, and been described by the Daily Telegraph as Britain's `shabby Pevsner'. In 2008, Paul published the bestselling first edition of DERELICT LONDON to widespread acclaim. derelictlondon.com

An excellent update! Loved the original book and the 'then and now' photos included in this edition are interesting and thought provoking.
