    Visited with ACID-REFLUX, Telf & Will Knot. Good to meet you & thanks for putting up with me, enjoyed the 'tomb raider' style access :)
    Already a few reports gone up so tried to not to repeat the same stuff. A nice explore but a bit bare inside.

    History,
    "Robert Garnett was born on 6 Jun 1830 in Penketh, Warrington, Lancs. He died on 9 Apr 1903 in Penketh, Warrington, Lancs.. He was buried in Sankey. He married Mary James on 15 Sep 1859 in Stanwix, Carlisle. Robert was employed as a Cabinet maker. He was a generous local benefactor to many churches and charities and even laid the foundation stone at penketh methodist church."
    Also after we got in Telf told us apparently the police were called after someone heard screaming from inside the building but it was searched & nothing was found :eek:

    It was a horrid death trap in 2007, cracking views all the same!

    I've not done the "tomb raider" access but got in when someone had broken in and it was left unsecured for a week. It is a death trap, what with missing floors (e.g. where concrete at ground floor suddenly becomes a wood floor with holes in it), the rotten tower stairs, and (Acid-Reflux wasn't joking about risking death) it's not recommended to stand on lead with rotten rafters underneath. No point trying to compete with the OP pics but here's a couple of shots just to show the danger. First is what looks like one of the roof ventilators at ground level, you have to think how it got there from the roof, and second is the other tower with what looks like a slab of concrete or stone just waiting to fall 50 feet, though how it got to that position is a mystery.
