    Talking to a guy on Facebook and although its an old report I have linked they have only just moved out of the building. He has given me a road name that allows to get close to the old building to admire its architecture and history .will post once I have visited this week .

    Surely that's why they invented Google Earth and Street-view ?

    Good luck :)

    8 th august 2014 , had a trip over to birch hill today ,not a hard site to access , and walked pretty much unchallenged , maybe worth donning a hi-viz and simply walking on see image front3 , and rear 1 , however , talking to guy onsite it seems any out of hours visits are covered by sensors all over the place , and I think it is pretty much stripped . Would love to get to and up the clock tower however. As far as i know , there is no charge of trespass possible unless the owners specifically say I am not allowed on site , after which im liable , can anyone confirm ?

    key to that is just dont tell the owners beforehand that you are going.
