    Good evening!

    I’m lucky enough to have a month off work! Looking to meet people to explore with in the last two weeks of July. In Barcelona for the first two weeks but I would love to get some more exploring done in my time off. I live in Hull but will probably be looking for locations out of town as I’ve already been to a few derpy places in Hull (Rank Hovis, Lordline, Carlton Theatre, National Picture Theatre) and things seem to be a bit uncertain with empty buildings in Hull at the moment as there have been a string of ‘arson attacks’ and the police have told building owners to ‘keep sites secure’ http://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/Derelict-property-owners-urged-sites-secure-arson/story-26657871-detail/story.html

    I have wanted to go exploring for quite a while since I first saw some ‘Circus Circus’ nightclub pictures years ago (someone on here’s I think) I’d always wondered what it looked like inside because wasn’t old enough to go when it was actually open haha!

    Anyway I went around Hull with an experienced explorer friend for the first time about a month ago- so here I am! (She’s gone on travels for a few months!) Interested in trying all kinds of sites really- haven’t been anywhere that ‘high’ yet or underground.

    I will post a report at some point (but I didn’t really get that many photos :/)

    Look forward to hopefully meeting some of you!

    Thanks :)

    Yeh more or less lol. It is was about a month after I went to Lordline it got burnt (promise I'm not an arsonist!)

    I'll probably be passing there next week so will let you know! Saw it a couple of weeks ago- looks like they're working their way back from St Peters street- you could practically see through it- just a skeleton from the back. Glad I got to see inside it before its all gone though!

    I"m wondering where the in-house Eastern European scrap metal Fairies have been evicted too ? Although to be fair they"ve already done most of the Demo" work for the contractors lol

    Last time we called in they were loading a transit up with scrap at the front gate, Coppers just drove past (pre Demo")

    Yeh there wasn't much metal to see when I went :(- even some staircases removed (though this might have been the contractors?), wooden shoot things were probably the best things left when I got there!

    reckon everything worth anything must have been sold before the contractors moved in...

    Metal staircase"s were removed years ago as was most stuff that weighed anything including the shafts out of the sieving units ? like above in your pic. These have been smashed up with a vengence over the last year by the live in EU"s.
    That was a shock walking into their digs in the old burnt out offices while some were still asleep, talk about Anal twitching lol

    The removal also made the Silo side mostly in-accessable unless you fancied climbing up a grease covered lift structure, so i never bothered.

    This along with Lord line etc are prime examples of the authorities not giving a flying fuck about these buildings, both have been blatantly raped & burnt in full view of everyone. I was at Rank on a Sunday with Police parked outside while the EU"s attacked the place with sledgehammers & crowbars, it sounded like it was being bombed, the Police had not a care in the world. Now if i"d been seen having a piss in the bushes they"d have taken an interest (rolls eyes)
