    So this is a sort of historical post I guess, in as much as that these are photo's I took about two years ago. I've been exploring places for several years but haven't put up any photo's anywhere but Flickr, so please let me know if I'm not doing this right!

    Designed by Stanley G. Livock, built by Simms & Cooke of Nottingham at a cost of £33,000 and opened on 9th November 1934 by Lord Mayor Fred Jex. Work was initially delayed, by the discovery during work on the foundations of several wells; some of which were thought to have housed secret caches of arms and gunpowder during the Civil War, and cesspits. It is a Grad II listed building and was to replace the Pottergate Fire Station. The fire service moved out in 2011 and it lay empty until it was bought by Graham Dacre of the Lind Trust, iwho turned it into The Sir Isaac Newton Sixth Form.

    Nicely done... Looked at it once back then but never did get round to it as the next time I went the had scaff running between the fire station and the police station, so I climbed that and got busted and had a nice lengthy chat with a few police officers about the dangers of what I was doing ;)

    Thanks folks! Norfolk Explorer it's a shame you didn't make it, it was pretty weird sitting and watching the police from this building! They never knew haha! Awesome place to be at night with all the city lights!
