The Midland Hotel in Morecambe is a Grade II listed building which has captured public fascination in recent years. It’s the Art Deco style which has made it so loved.
Restored in 2008 by Urban Splash, it had been on its way to ruin after closing down several years earlier.
The Midland, designed by architect Oliver hill and sculptured by Eric Gill, was built in 1933 – though there has been a hotel on the site since 1848.
An episode of the TV show Poirot was filmed there in 1989.
These images were taken in the late 1990s (and possibly the year 2000). Do Not Use Without Permission.
