    My name is Seb, 15 years old, I live in stockport just south of the city centre. I've recently become aware of the site and become very interested in the idea of derelict places and exploration. I haven't visited anywhere yet so suggestions are welcome! However there are a few places I plan to visit out of curiosity and a passion for photography. These include: Hollywood bridge area in Stockport, New Mills, Salford railway bridges, Castlefield, mayfield station and demmings industrial estate in cheadle,

    Welcome!

    There's plenty to explore around Stockport and Manchester, just ensure you stay safe at all times and only take calculated risks. Taking nice photos is great but its not worth risking your life over, just keep that in mind :)

    Ahhh, a fresh new victi...candidate :thumb

    No, seriously, welcome in Seb :) There's a few bod's around from the Stockport and surrounding areas, myself included. Wise words from Bigian up there, take that on-board.

    I like that you've taken an interest in your home town at a young age. It may be a little scruffy around the edges, but there's plenty gems to be looked at.

    Make sure you let us know how you get on. Do you know much about Stockport?

    Haha thanks you :) I know there was a fairly rich cotton industry which explains the multitude of old mills and therefore tunnel systems that supplied water to them for power. Some of the weirs along the mersey were build for this purpose. Also pre war a large bomb shelter structure was build to house some thousands of people during WW2. I'm looking forward to getting out there, any suggestions to sites?

    It may be a little scruffy around the edges…How bloody dare you, i'm from stockport…Only kidding mate, it has lost its way over the years. welcome to the forum Sebp. get using the search button too. Stockport mersey way is good, plenty of mills, there's still some of St Thomas hospital left plus the morgue. Reddish has a nice baths worth looking at. plus a quick train into manchester, this too has a lot to offer as does Oldham etc…All good sound advice, i would find a friend to go with too, just to be on the safe side. My best advice is just get out and look, your a bit young to drive so just look on google, council sites etc and good ole feet…you will be surprised just whats out there. Plus the old royal mail building next to Mc donalds…yet to be cracked.

    I've noticed the mills opposite the co-op pyramid near the audi garage, might have a go. The royal mail building sounds fun, I see people have had eyes on it for years! Thanks for the advise :)
