    Something to do with the Police I've always been told, have stared through the windows numerous times. It is riddled with CCTV and occasionally has random lights on on upper floors.

    This is known as Carlton Tower. It was once the HQ for the police in Leeds, I believe fraud, intelligence and some other divisions. It was built back in the 1950's/60's and is believed to have inspired the Bridgewater Place architecture (and build quality!). I'm pretty sure it was then either sold to either Leeds University or the NHS for some purpose but now of course lies empty. I heard they are supposed to be refurbishing the building shortly. Would be great to explore though.

    Yep. Shame really as it seems some of the community around it don't really what to see it empty really.

    Its not a bad little public building for Leeds, would be great to see it brought back into community use of some sort. At least part of it for starters.

    I think there is a few spots not too far from here also. Nice few shots there. A few of the Victorian schools in London have come down in recent years.

    I'd love to see the interiors, walked round this place loads, I reckon it's been opened up a few times but never managed to have a nosey. I reckon the staircase on the front will be good and the rest will be a bit non-descript!
