    Having been one of those workers that used to be let in free whenever i wanted after work, and having been there on Sunday (and Friday) night, im also very sad to see it go.

    It almost feels like it's a bad joke, and in a few weeks time i can wander on back in there for a knees up. It will only really hit home when i walk past it and its preumably boarded up.

    Rumours were flying around at the weekend that they intend to open up a new venture, possibly in Camden....:confused:

    They're being kicked out of their home of 30+ years (above the club) on Friday. It fucking sucks.

    I can't even imagine what hateful piece of yuppie shit is going to replace the 414. I wonder if the billionaire DJ Village boy is going to get his hands on it.

    Sad times - I loved and hated those stairs :(:D:thumbs:

    They posed a massive challenge to anyone who was even vaguely refreshed - I lost hours to the fish tank, hours to people who’d lost hours to the fish tank - spilling out of there on a Monday morning, as everyone else was heading into work - we were the spooks and ghouls who didn’t know when to go home - it was a very messy time in my life, but always a good buzz - always!

    I fell down those stairs one night after taking what was supposed to be an E but clearly wasn't. My legs were bandy as fuck and I went from top to bottom. Covered in bruises for weeks afterwards.

    I never fell down those stairs but concentration was tested. RIP 414, happy memories.

    Came to mightily close to toppling down those stairs on a number of occasions.

    In fact, i am a little surprised they lasted until the end, given the amount of injuries that must have happened as a result of those stairs.

    I fell up and down those stairs! I once vaguely remember lying on the stairs thinking I could see the sky and stars through the roof

    Any updates on the court case…? Is it still being squatted…? I could search, but CBFA.

    Went passed today and there was a notice saying that the owners had won but no date as to when the squatters had to leave.

    Here's what was on the window:

    CH1 "Red Guard"(NLYL)

    I remember around 1983 the building was squatted by Spartacus R and others. It seemed to be a black cultural centre of some kind.
    Spartacus was a fiery man, and very short. He wore platform heels to compensate.
    As well as his musical work with Osibissa he did musical stand-up and wrote books - one of which had the odd name "The Maat Mystery".
