Customhouse Quay

The Customhouse in Greenock was designed by the reknowned Edinburgh architect, William Burn in 1818. Almost 200 years later and still looking splendid, HM Customs & Revenue have decided that they no longer need the building and it is currently lying empty and unused.

It's good to see that it is still being floodlit at night, which shows that this fine building has not been abandoned. I hope that someone finds a new use for it soon as it is one of Greenock's key landmarks.

The sky was a lovely colour on Friday eveining with not a cloud in sight when I took these pictures.
