    It's been a while
    ...but I had a weekend off and heard about this place so I thought why not do a report.
    In terms of history it's a odd one because I've heard a few stories to why this place has shut down. Their websites have been fully blocked so getting some history of the place isn't too easy. There is also no news reports on why it has closed down so it is a bit weird.
    This place was certainly bizarre. As we made our way in we were greeted by a lovely dog but first thought was obviously we are not alone.
    As we wondered along we were welcomed by some extremely nice people scrapping who just came to check we were not the Policia I guess.
    It then came clear that a fair few people lived here, as we walked along we found fresh takeaway boxes little bedrooms made up. It may be abandoned but people are clearly still loving the beds and the space.
    It was almost impressive how quickly this place has been stripped bare. There really wasn't anything of value and everything had been turned upside down, some scrappers do not mess around. Anyway hope you enjoy guys!

    Brilliant as always, love how you manage to slot photos of people in so it's not just empty derps.
