    I notice this while having a mooch about Manchester,
    alot of the walls and floors are in a bad way
    there was alot of equipment remaining at street level and on first floor
    but wasnt possible too access these or the tiled staircase, due too unforseen circumstances.
    Nothing epic, but well worth the visit.
    Sort of half a thread but thought I will share with you .

    visited with @Coolboyslim

    D & G Smith Gibson was a former textile warehouse,
    the company was founded February 1934, in Stockport & continues trading today
    (cant find opening and closing dates or prior uses for this building).
    The building is currently in the process of refurbishment,
    even through there isnt much evidence of this except scaffolding.
    No idea if the building is grade listed.

    ah No.2 Harter Street, not cropped up in a while

    You should have nipped into the old club below, it used to be the only bit worth seeing here back before it was trashed

    Nah just two friendly secca guys who said we triggered alarm @host. But could have been just bad luck no way of really knowing. But didn't see any triggers or anything all though we weren't really looking for them. Who knows.

    I'd be very surprised if it was alarmed up as there was no power in recent years, have they started working on it or something ?
