    OK, So here we are again six months on! Access was granted again for a very short time so full advantage was taken. As my baby daughter is due in the next few days this was my one and only chance to get everything on the list done.. 11 epic hours well spent!

    This will be one report covering the whole place.. it may be a little long winded but I don't intend eeking it out over a few reports :gay
    I'll start were we entered namely section 12 Kitchen, Canteen and Dining area and do the whole circle from there.

    Not going to do any history with this one as Speedio :Not Worthy & Magpie :p Bitch covered it in their reports.

    Some areas have been left out totally as they are either completely empty or cordoned off due to Asperillis mould or high levels of asbestos and TBH there's nothing of interest in there anyway.

    Accompanied by Rigsby, Tommo & Petzl. Look forward to more supertasty reports from those guys!

    Anyway enough bollox from me and on with the pictures! Enjoy :D
