    Well me and @Diggertron 5000 were trying to get a few other things done in Manchester we decided to check this out on the way home after a little recon of secca and ways in we picked one and went for it! before we new it we where in the grounds of the station.

    There was not much to see really on the outside of the station.

    After looking up at this I new I wanted to gte to the top!
    [​IMG]
    A little walk and we where in on the ground floor

    We had a look in some of the rooms on the ground floor but the floors are looking a little rotten, so we started to make our way to the platform.

    To get to the platfroms there was a big wall in our way! :D we got past it like always
    Then came across this!

    And as normal where this is a camera we have to take a picture with it! this happens to be monitored 24/7
    and just as we got out secca responded!

    Sorry for the pic heavy report, its just such a good explore to do!
    The feeling of running down the platform knowing hundreds of people used to be trying to catch there train here is epic!

    First of all well done for getting in, it's nice to see this again.

    However, do NOT post pictures of you entering the place. Secca/land owners could see this and seal it back up, stopping people from getting in for future explores. It could also land you in the shit.

    For your pics, use a tripod and use a long exposure, roughly 4-8 seconds. this will allow you to light the place up more evenly and with shadows by light paint.

    Also a bit of history would be nice, there's a few reports on this place to help you gain info for this, as well as google.

    Again, nice to see this place again :thumb

    No worries, I'm always happy to help. With your camera, sit in your garden at night and play with the manual settings to work out how it all works. Here's a video that might help you out -


    I learnt in tunnels, I'm not perfect but I'm much better than I was 4 years ago.

    Just keep access and sensitive subjects like that well away from the open forum. You never know who's looking.

    Maybe rethink your habit of having a selfie next to CCTV cameras.

    Well done for having a crack, however, have a think for next time about what makes a report interesting by having a look at what others have done.

    - If you don't have a tripod, don't go at night as you'll need light.
    - Buy a tripod and watch the long exposure video someone posted above if you do go at night.
    - Regarding interestingness, lots of photos of you and your mate with your arms folded do not an interesting report make.

    Keep at it.
