    Howdy :)

    Had a gander over to the Clinic with Jbo400, It was not our primary target for the day. But after being busted by secca in the Bass Maltings, we had to settle for second best :(

    (Jbo400 snagged this pic on the way out, being escorted out of the Maltings, so close, but so far. At least the guard was a nice enough guy)

    So we drove 15 mins to get to the clinic, which is rather secluded and took me some time to find it on Google maps. The explore was enjoyable and considering the place used to be a rehab for alcoholism, there is way to many beers strew around the place.

    A little history: The building was originally a manor house built in the 18th century, and during the 1980's it became a private practise for the treatment of alcoholism. It remained a clinic until 2003 when the government cut the funding for the treatment of alcoholsim.

    (As per slightly pic heavy)

    We may have failed at getting into the Maltings but it was still a good day. Thanks Jbo400

    Nice ones :)

    That"s the same Secca guy that got me, nicest bloke you could hope too meet IMO :) trouble is he called the police for me to be safe (solo?) who also brought the Dog Unit along with the Squad car :eek:

    All my externals were taking walking out as well, with shouts from the neighbours overlooking the Maltings, who had also watched me stood on the Water tower while they ate their breakfasts in their Conservatory ;)

    Well done getting in here with the "Locals" :) i gave up

    We went pretty early to try and avoid the locals, but either it was someone spotting us as we hopped the fence or just bad luck. We were just about to go into the tower when he spotted us :( The guy was nice enough and unlocked the gates to let us out.
    Plus he was talking to us about some guy he caught a while back. He said he had to call the police as the guy wouldn't come down, as he thought the guard was a Pikey and one of his friends was attacked by some Pikeys. Was this you?

    Yeah that"s me, famous at last lol.
    Trouble is it"s hard to hear what people are saying when you"re sat in the top of the Tower :) I thought he"d just think i"d got out ( have too be bloody quick down all them stairs and "Barb Wire" fences before he got inside lol but didn"t realise the Dog Unit had already gone down the fields to collect me exiting the area :)

    Very nice man though :) there was a mention of Neighbourhood Watch made as well :(

    I wouldn"t mind but i"m scared of heights and i"m wandering around the Tank edge looking at the neighbours, and didn"t even get some decent panoramic shots for my troubles.

    Never was lucky :)

    Managed 2 hours though...i"m methodical :)

    If only i hadn"t spent @5 mins trying to remove my Crotch from the "Barb Wire" getting in things might have been different :)......gutted

    The guy told us that one of your friends was attacked and had all of his gear nicked, is that true? and if so poor guy :(

    What did the Police have to say?

    Yeah not from there though

    Never spoke to the Dog Unit as they were @ the car but he was Mr Angry Policeman, in complete contrast to Mr nice man Secca, who couldn"t understand why anyone would want to A. Risk getting inside and B. Want to take pictures of it , especially on a Bank Holiday lol

    Quite a lot of threats etc off Policeman ) probably pissed for having to wait 40 mins for me to come down, hence the wider search probably:) but he did calm down a little when i took my hat & Mask off and he realised i actually was that old :) WTF??? Funny bit was him wanting confirmation of my ID after he"d already been shouting my name and address, car reg and towing away threats up to me already ???

    Secca said not too worry about repercussions ? ...hopefully he"s correct :)

    There has been lot"s of Metal Fairies and Chavs inside according to Secca, so obviously as a matter of course if he"s unsure as whats going on (as in my case) he will ring for the Police, which is fair enough as you would, it"s safety first, can"t fault him....as for wasting Police time......well ?

    Don"t let me hear about you again around here....no officer ......3 fails later lol

    Funnily enough when reviewing some through the broken window shots inside the Tower, if i zoom into my car in the distance there"s people and a van around it already pre-bust :eek:

    In my defence it"s a long walk back to Wakefield from Sleaford :)

    I'd love to see that pic :) and the secca was a real nice guy, he told us about all the problems he has been having with kids cutting fences and breaking stuff. He also gave us time to get some pictures on the way out (but none of the inside :/ ) bless his cottons :)

    Well i had about hour or so inside in reality not including "nesting" time :) Thought it was longer but forgot about the fact i couldn"t climb over following my shoulder surgery ......but made it in the end and got all the Tower :)

    Probably Karma for hitting that Pigeon that kept trying to knock me off the RSJ"s under the tank :)

    I"ve no HD space to PP anything ATM (again) everythings backlogged again.....one day :)

    He was in a rush as he had an Alarm call to answer, i left angry Copper to go & talk to him locking up lol

    Fab photos - I'm an ex local and hadn't realised the place had shut down :-(
    Bizarre moment for me is recognising the wallpaper from the TV room of a friend who was a resident there !!!
    Thanks
