Absolutely no change at the Grade 2 listed Railway Hotel in Edgware. No efforts made to secure cover on fire-damaged roof.— Mark Amies (@Superfast72) December 2, 2018

So....3 days on and the roof at the Railway Hotel, Edgware still uncovered. @BarnetCouncil had told people it would be done on the 21st.— Mark Amies (@Superfast72) November 23, 2018
It seems the job was stalled, to fulfill the supposed commitment to a better job on 26th. I could here scaffolding noises this morning. pic.twitter.com/zLzOgaTObW

The 'renovation' has seen the sundial painted. Worth pointing out that this was bare metal before, a pewter/lead finish. So...at this point if like to raise with @HE_LondonAdvice and @BarnetCouncil if the Listing is being adhered to? @Barneteye pic.twitter.com/wUwJqjgufu

Every Monday, The Barnet Eye focuses on one aspect of our local environment. The total lack of enforcement of the law in respect to this Grade II listed building is absolutely clear from what myself and Mark saw. It is nothing short of a disgrace. If Barnet Council can't be bothered enforcing the law when a building has Grade II listing status, what hope is there for anything in the Borough of worth and value?
