    So the infamous Mayfield station, arguably one of the best location in Manchester. It was the first place I ever visited and even shot a music video there as part of my media production coursework.
    Anyway, as we all know it was briefly used as an arts venue for Manchester arts week, I visited then and it looked more like a builders yard with fences and scaffolding everywhere. The The Warehouse Project made plans to use it as their next venue and more art shows were to be held. But it seems like this may have all fallen through? I've found this article saying London Continental Railways (who own the site) have put a stop to any development of it to be used as a entertainments venue as they want it for updated rail networks. And as good as the British rail network is, this probably won't be done in a rush. So maybe we're able to roam it free again? And after it hosting the short arts festival and holding a gig inside, maybe there are new additions to it? I'll post the link to the article below, let me know what you think. I might be getting excited over nothing but there is always hope :thumb

    was confused as to who London Continental Railways are? But it seems to be the new name for British Rail Board (Residuary) Ltd (BRBR) since 2013

    Now then, does this mean these property's still come under the jurisdiction of British Transport Police??

    Hey didn't say it is for definite, personal opinions? I enjoy places that feel open and lonely in a way

    It was great until they took the roof off! I was last there in June 2013.
    There used to be rubber works nearby that was a good site, I came across it during a failed attempt to get into Mayfield. Gone now sadly, but I am tempted by the lower sections.
