here is a reply to the email I sent

Dear Daniel,

Than you for your email regarding the condition of the above B Listed property.

I have been in touch with West Lothian Council planning department and can assure you that they are fully aware of the poor condition of this important building. I must stress that the Council are not however, the owners of the building at this time. Can I suggest that you contact Stuart at West Lothian Council so that he can explain to you the developments relating to this property. He can be contacted on or by email at . Mr is on annual leave at present but will be available from 5th January 2011.

In the meantime please feel free to contact me if I can be of any further assistance to you.

Yours sincerely,

Victoria



I have already sent an email to Stuart to see what he comes back with

hope this works out and with the snow and frost we have had i dont see the roof lasting much more then when that happens the walls will be next
but on a note be for you get dun under the data protection act as just now spam trollers can see that You shoud remove the first part of the Email address i.e: xxxxxxxxxxxx@westlothian.gov.uk more info here http://www.ico.gov.uk/upload/documents/ ... rsion1.pdf

    noticed the gates to the old rose garden were padlocked. (a memorable place from my childhood) so I decided to leash the dog to the gate and jump over for a ganders and it looks like someones making benches out of rubble as there are stones all over the place
