    I must tip my hat to Darbians for the tip off on this place! After seeing a shot of his from here I had to see this place for myself! Almost all the building had been stripping inside of most of the original features, many floors were back to brick and bare floorboards. Some office space remained pending further strip outs but after almost 40 minutes of searching we still hadn't found the main attraction, the ballroom! We knew it was tricky to find and only accessible via one door onto a balcony from which you had to climb down to the ballroom floor level. As soon as we opened that door we gasped at the sight of this room! Unbelievable in comparison with the state of the rest of the place this part stood almost immaculate with only some minor signs of decay…

    After covering the ballroom, we snapped a few shots of one of the staircases before leaving happy with what we captured…

    We had a quick look around this last week but we didn't bother attempting as there were construction workers on site @Telf.
