No, they're gone, along with the rest of the old Wellcome place.




As my rather long post mentioned, the site was bought out by Henry Wellcome in 1889.  I planned the relocation of the Wellcome Trust in London in the late 80s, and there was a massive print of the older pic in the boardroom.


Most of Wellcome got bought out by Glaxo, I think.

I thought those buildings were part of the Wellcome West Site in Dartford?


They were.  Are you suggesting they are still there?  Certainly been massively altered over decades from the 1890s and barely recogniseable.

Post deleted, so it can't be plagiarised (ironically)
