    After working on the docks for more than a year i always went past this building knowing little about it, but after a tricky access it was a nice surprise for an afternoon explore.

    Like most of the dock it is boarded up and abandoned though we were able to slip through to see what had been frozen in time and what the pigeons had been up to.

    Unfortunately for us it was on the main road.

    After finding an access point we were greeted with darkness.

    Racks which were used to store rope.

    After finding a somewhat sketchy staircase we came to an opening of the 2nd floor.

    Evaluating the situation we decided it was not safe to enter this room.

    After finding another staircase it took us to a complex of rooms and offices.

    An old safe reminding us that we were not the only visitors.

    Making our relatively rushed escape.

    Had a look in here after visiting the ice factory, didn't take any pics but had a quick run around in the dark, glad you bothered to report on it!

    Nice work!

    Looks like a decent place actually. Grimsby I guess?

    It's not the same place I thought it was actually after looking into it, very similar looking building and set up though...

    Thank you! To be fair many of the buildings are very similar, my main target has always been cosalt a few doors down but unfortunately it seems futile
