    Was having a good look around Stockport the other day for some new stuff to explore and I came across this. It's the area next to the college. Place is obviously derelict/abandoned. Lots of boards up and smashed windows. Anyone who is local to the area will know which place I mean. What's the deal with this anyway? I vaguely remember hearing some years ago that it used to be St. Thomas's but it was bought by the college for a campus expansion or something. Access looked easy enough but there were SK signs up (you know the ones lol) and what looked like fairly recent CCTV camera installations. Anyone know if sec are active there and cams are monitored? Would like to know the risk from someone who may have been here. I spent a good 30 minutes having a good look around the perimeter and just as I was leaving a police car and a white van turned up which put the willies up me. Looks like a potentially awesome explore if anyone wants to go and check it out?

    It's this place. http://goo.gl/maps/JnjLx

    tl;dr how safe it it?

    I was thinking along similar lines but I thought I may as well ask anyway just in case someone told me something I didn't know, potentially avoiding an unnecessary 8 hours in a cell. :laugh

    Loads of people got caught while it was derelict. Security had dogs. Now it's got new pipes in, it may be even better patrolled.
    Not trying to put you off though. Pick the right place and time :thumb
