    History
    One of the few sh*tholes in Bracknell that hasn't been demolished in order to make it the most renovated town in Britain. As with most places in Bracknell, history is hard to come by. I cant find when the place was built or when it was closed although its lifespan was approximately from the 70s to the 00s. It's frequently used by local Photography/Media students as an interesting shooting location. Unfortunatley the nightclub under the spiral exit has been completely concreted over.
    The Visit
    Entry was easy. Every time I've been here a new entrance has been created. This place is so popular that nobody wants to be locked out. Managed to get through the whole place undisturbed. Also managed to scare the sh*t out of some kids while I was leaving.

    Well, yes

    It's not really something that's going to inspire other people to visit, but well done for documenting a crap hole :p

    What it lacks in for being an appealing site, (unless you have a thing for car parks), I'm sure makes up for it with the effort

    Keep at it and keep exploring all the same :thumb

    The plus side is that your next report can't be any worse :thumb
    The point to remember is ask yourself 'Would anybody else be interested in seeing images or visiting this site?'

    Alright, I'll admit it isn't the most glamorous location, but I'm on this site to share my urban exploration photos and stories. I don't care if an abandoned parking garage isn't interesting to you or anyone else. Its abandoned, so it belongs on this site. There is nothing wrong with my report

    Bracknell needs bulldozing and a nice 6 lane motorway put from the M3 to the M4 across it. Fucking roundabout congested shitpit.

    There was something on youtube about this site, which I think was published coming up to a year ago potentially from one or two people.

    I found your report while trying to find history on the car park! I didn't realise you were here on 28DL as well.
