    Having been a fan of this building ever since I first laid eyes on it, I always knew one day I'd get inside for a good poke around. Numerous visits proved fruitless, but I never gave up hope.

    Fast forward to the present. Nimble spiderpeople now frequent 28days, previously dismissed accesses suddenly pose little challenge to skinny nutters. Oh happy day, I finally set foot inside the courtyard of one of my favourite structures in the whole of Manchester.

    By the time I'd arrived at the prearranged meeting point, I was running a whole 7 minutes late, by which point my rather impatient cohorts had already given up on me and gained access! (don't even try and dispute it people, satnav, radio and phone all said 7-8 minutes past the hour :p ).

    Long story short, Scott guides me in and I meet up with the rest of the group. Scott then does his best to herd myself, Snappel, BenWRX and Spook around whilst simultaneously managing to drive Cass round the bend.

    Whilst we were ultimately unsuccessful in gaining access to the Coroners Court, we saw a good wodge of cool stuff in there, plus what appears to be several B&Q's worth of wallpaper rolls. Oh, and we also got in touch with Spooks gay side :gay

    A bit of history unashamedly nicked from Wikipedia


    And now a few shots of the place. I can see a load of pics coming out of this place in the near future, so I've made a point of giving some of them something a bit different. And to be fair I can't really do the place justice in a couple of hours, so another visit is definately on the cards.
