    Had a visit to this earlier in the year, but found it to be bricked off. There was a brief talk of a few of us getting roped up to have a go, but nothing ever surfaced. Then about 3 months later I got a message from Jazzywheelz to say that someone had been in. I was just about to board a flight to Ireland, so could not joint them. First chance I got when I was back I got up there hoping I hadn't missed out.

    I was in luck. A few people lurking around. There was a homeless guy camping outside of the building. When I arrived, I walked round a corner to see him standing there, but he had his back turned so I carried on past. Inside were 2 other explorers finishing their trip round (trouser cowboy & boxfrenzy - not sure if they are on here much (or at all) Got up to the top & then coming down the homeless guy was in the entrance muttering to himself, so I hung around for a bit up top. Didn't see him again on my way out.

    On with the pics...

    Nice to meet you mate, and super snaps there. The old boy was spraying paint, while his dog ate a rabbit (dead) nearby.
