    First off I should mention that this is my first report, so any major issues or improvements please let me know! I had an absolute nightmare with flickr not working at all so after two hours I've had to resort to photobucket!

    History: Tarn end house has been difficult to try and research history wise, having trawled the internet for clues it appears the local media have reported on it so much that finding any actual information about the site is nigh on impossible (however saying this I'm sure somebody here will do a much better job at it than I have). All I could gather is that it was closed in 2005, and since then it has exchanged hands multiple times, bought in 2008 for £850,000 it has since fell into disrepair, with planning permission repeatedly denied by many local residents. The building is expected to be demolished once the land owners have used up their few remaining options for appeal.

    The explore: I first came across the building by accident, from walking around the local 'Talkin Tarn' lake, I decided to have a scout around and see if there was any access. Myself and another non-member managed to get in without having to scale any fences (phew) however be careful as the main entry point is based on a fairly busy stretch. At the time of the visit security was non-existant, nor where there any signs of security ever existing there. Flitting about between buildings involves being exposed so be patient, but be quick. Being my first explore I was fairly conscious of being spotted. Before uploading this post I visited the site three times, once to work out access, once to noisy around, and the third time to photograph. Be mindful of sharps as it does appear to be the type of place where drug abuse would be common. The upstairs floor is also suffering from wood rot - with slats missing in places and evidence of feet having went through the boards, however we were careful and managed not to fall through.

    No external shots its much better from the outside. Looked promising when i went 2 or 3 years ago nice exterior then totally stripped inside. Good effort for a first report.

    A lot of the photos you have included here are quite similar.

    The best option is to choose 10 or so shots that you like the most and post them, then put a link to the rest of the shots then people can choose if they want to see more of a place or not.

    Very very few places warrant more than 15 or 20 shots, never mind 32!
