    This place has been closed since december 2008 i believe, located on leigh broadway. Had a look at it a few times, seems to be well secured with those metal grills. Possibly still alarmed.

    Although now i have just found this news about the twat from TOWIE doing it all up into a 'boutique hotel'. Bought it for £4.3million. Says work is set to begin in january but nothing ever usually goes to plan. Some photo's of inside too, the press have done the work for us..

    Had a quick look around this site tonight whilst in the area. Seems fairly secure from what I can see and CCTV appears active (IR glow). Some evidence of site activity so work may have begun, but nothing significant it's still very much derelict. Would make a challenging but exciting interior explore!

    This is the place where the great Lee Brillaux from Dr Feelgood used to drink.
