    This one has been done many times before, but sometimes it can be interesting to see how an urbex site develops as time goes by. I've visited this site three times now as its not far from me. On this occasion I visited with Welshevo and GG.

    I don't really know much about this site, other than it was some sort of leisure complex, and that Welshevo stayed there as a boy years ago! There is a church here too, which makes me wonder if there are some sort of religious intonations to the place.

    Anyway, make of it what you will, and enjoy! (Pictures in no particular order, as there isn't really an order I can make out of this lot!)


    Private property - not sure anyone will bother to enforce this though!

    I can't remember what was in this building... How is it that Pikeys are EVERYWHERE? Sighs at the tagging.

    This boot doesn't even look that old. I think someone lived in a section of this place as recently as a year or so ago. Maybe someone can tell me if thats right or not?

    This is the dining area, the kitchen is just to the left (out of site). Hundreds of hungry kids would've eaten here.

    Not sure what this part of the building is, but it mightve been the changing area for the sports hall?

    Looking fairly overgrown...

    Again, this plastic toy doesn't look that old. Evidence of someone living here quite recently?

    Some sort of main control fusebox.

    The church, with organ, more derelict/damaged than last time I visited.

    Its strange how times change... If a leisure complex was build now for kids, they'd hardly think to include a church!

    I give this place about a year, and it'll either be totally derelict, or someone will have bought it and built houses on it!
