Tower Block, Tudor Road, Cwmbran 15 January 2016
In 2012, Cwmbran's "flagship" tower block was given a one million pound "facelift" with external insulation cladding. This is a close up of the northern elevation, which receives minimal sunlight. The panels are developing a green mould which, if only external, is disfiguring; but it could also indicate problems between the cladding and the main fabric of the building. Considering about ten years or so ago it was diagnosed with concrete cancer and there were proposals to demolish it, this cannot be good.
