Old ENOC Colchester bus garage
« on: May 08, 2018, 07:57:39 PM »
A recent topic on the SCT61 Website/Forum one of the contributors found another website entitled '28 days later - Urban Exploration'.

The latter site explores redundant industrial buildings and there is coverage of the old Eastern National bus garage in Queen Street, Colchester showing what it sadly became after being vacated by ENOC. There is a vandalised Routemaster former Playbus inside the dilapidated and decaying building.

This is a link to the topic:

The Routemaster has previously been used by a Colchester arts organisation, Firstsite (no connection with a bus operator starting with a similar name).  It spent some time at the Cambridge Leisure Park in late 2011/early 2012 in the parking compound at the rear of the The Junction, a music and arts venue on the complex.
