    This was my first visit to Severalls, and unfortunately probably my last. Demolition has started – sadly with the main hall reduced to 6ft of rubble. No real sign of security, just a white van, although we did come literally face to face with a group of thieving pikies! Judging by the amount of reports lately, I’m surprised we didn’t bump into other explorers! Thanks to Cavewheel for driving, and jimmying access. Enjoy.

    This is part of the master plan for what's proposed: Not one, not two, but 1,500 new homes. The dark brown buildings are to be retained and renovated. I’m pleased to see that's most of the corridors, the water tower, and the admin building.

    I re-visited on Sunday, not worth a new report: one of the corridors was flooded giving a lovely reflection…
