This short escalator journey will be familiar to people who have visited Northampton town centre by bus, alighting at Greyfriars Bus Station.

I'm sure there are many regular bus passengers who hear the blunt, nasal voice saying: "...this is a safety announcement - will you please hold the handrail..." - in their sleep.

Exciting trips to spend pocket money on CDs, a night on the town, dreaded Christmas shopping, dinner dates, sleepy starts to long days at the office, the end of a long coach journey back from some vibrant university campus or airport, nervously anticipated job interviews... they all passed through here.

Over the road, the successor to this building is under construction, and though my head knows it's the right thing to do... well, I am very fond of this hulk of a building.
