    Hey

    Been checking out this building every few weeks for months, derelict but currently no method of entry visible to me. Windows covered in cheap looking plywood, glass automatic doors at ground level closed with single locking bolt. Maintence doors/hatches in the exposed car park underneath locked pretty tight. Submitting this as a possible location of interest, requires further scouting.

    Had a scout around today and its all sealed up. All the doors are either locked or padlocked and the windows are all sealed up. I also had a look and it is for sale and there are people coming and going to look at it.

    Managed to get in there the other day with 2 of my mates, through the front door. The wooden door at the front has now been sealed again and bolted in. Glass doors were on the floor, lifts still work (surprisingly) but I wouldn't use them, as they seem to be a bit dodgy. If you go in there, you will need a torch until you get to the 1st floor. As said above, it is basically an office building, but once inside I believe that it is worth looking around. I only saw cctv cameras on the outside and I didn't spot any on the inside. Hope this helps if you still want to get into it.

    Manage to get inside this building around 1 week ago and from what i have seen there are 2 main methods of entry, one easy but visible, one difficult but more hidden.

    EDIT: ACCESS DETAILS REMOVED

    Not on a publicly viewable forum please

    Hope this helps - Happy Exploring

    Is it possible to read this without singing it in your head?

    Able to message me with the details? Would love to have a look around properly this time. Didn't get a proper look around as Police were called 5 mins after I left due to school kids running around outside .-.

    Still standing yes, but I went to it a few days ago to see if there was a way in, looks like they have fenced it off completely now, only way in that I can see is through a couple of open windows on the 2nd floor (Look around the building, shouldnt be hard to miss)
