    Hey guys, thought it would be nice to introduce myself and get to know some people here.

    I'm a university student currently living in Sheffield, but parents live in Stockport (Greater Manchester). My friends recommended this forum to me and after reading a few threads I realised it was exactly what I needed: a place to share information about urban exploration and to discover new places to explore.

    I've been exploring since the start of 2015, and I've explored pretty much all the landmarks in Sheffield (Hallam Tower, Ski Village etc...)

    Would be really nice to explore around Stockport and Manchester (find out about interesting places or even meet up with some people to explore).

    Peace!

    Thanks for replying mate!

    I'm gonna explore this abandoned college building near mine *********. Hopefully will write a report up if I can actually get in.

    Peace!

    Thanks for the reply as well mate!

    Well, there are quite a few abandoned industrial buildings near where I live (maybe because Stockport was quite of an industrial town) so this is why I think it's a good place to explore. Saying this, I haven't done any exploring around here, and tomorrow will be my first time exploring in Stockport.

    Looking forward to writing this report tomorrow!

    Peace!

    Great, we'll be waiting for the pictures ( not so much the vids though )

    I know where your referring to, but be mindful of how you note it on a public forum.

    Unfortunately I just found out there is a lot of CCTV around this place. My brother said someone set this place on fire a year ago and since then they put loads of cameras to stop people from getting in...

    Gonna have to try somewhere else now.

    It's suffered from young kids trashing the place sadly, breaking windows when we were on the site last. The cctv was there prior to that, so i'd still give it a go if you really fancy it. There's nothing to go crazy over, but i'm into the history and comparison of old photos of the place.

    I believe in pushing your own comfort level...to a point. If pushing your luck with the cameras isn't your thing, there's other things to poke around. There's a vast amount below surface if that's any use to you.

    I'm just a bit concerned in case they call the police, don't really wanna get done for trespassing ahaha

    Do you think it's safe to go in even with the CCTV?

    Peace!
