    Same place - different name.

    This place...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manchester_Cathedral_Steps

    Visited with Stepping Lightly, thank you.

    The layout of this place can be summarised by a number of arched rooms all leading back to a long corridor. Generally, all rooms are accessible from the corridor.

    There's a lot of pictures, please be patient...

    Corridor shot, including 'the' sign...

    On another internal wall, near the river...

    [​IMG]

    Now this might look like a pile of rotting timber (because it is)....

    [​IMG]

    ...but there's a good possibility that it's the remains of an external fixture, like one of these...

    Collapsed aircon, on a pile of rubble....

    [​IMG]

    Most of the rooms had this rubble, earth and old household waste in them, it had been transported in there, rather than being dropped in through the surface, or a collapse.

    more...

    Direction signs painted on the walls...

    [​IMG]

    Weird aircon and an internal whitewashed wall...

    [​IMG]

    more...

    [​IMG]

    A pair of double doors that would have led to the river...

    [​IMG]

    Steps to the corridor...

    [​IMG]

    Some type of secure storage in its day...

    [​IMG]

    Looking up to the corridor...

    [​IMG]

    The medical room entrance...

    [​IMG]

    The corridor...

    [​IMG]

    At this point, the corridor widened a lot...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The windowed entrance to the gents toilets...

    [​IMG]

    Looking down...

    [​IMG]

    Old signage...

    [​IMG]

    In the toilet attendants room...

    [​IMG]

    more than likely it's the window and hole on the left here...

    [​IMG]

    The gents toilets...

    [​IMG]

    The toilet steps and ancillary rooms...

    [​IMG]

    The aircon room...

    [​IMG]

    An arched room...

    [​IMG]

    Finally, a shot of the arches, the toilet attendants window is on the right.

    The windows are at the higher level (the corridor level). The gents toilets are on a lower level down some steps. Underneath these windows are a couple of 'utility' rooms...
