    Visited with a mate one night last week, bit of a rushed visit.
    Photos not great as my main touch ran out as soon as got there and left the spare batteries at home, so using my back up light and most photos took one handed so little blurry but wanted to share anyway.
    Will prob do a revisit as 2 mins from my flat.

    Couldn't find much info on it but this is little bit I did find -
    Public house. Dated on rainwater head, 1904. Brick with stone dressings, rendering and half timbering, combined for maximum picturesque effect. Plain tile roof. Hearty blend of late medieval and Baroque features in a typically exhuberant Edwardian fashion. Three storeys and attics with two-storey wing to Deanery Way. Corner entrance and four-bay elevation, two-window return. Semicircular entrance porch surmounted by tower. Full-height pilasters marking the angles of the two elevations. Half-timbered tower above the entrance with bands of mullioned and transomed windows in two storeys, and rendered upper storey with oculus in cartouche; projecting domed cap. Elevation to main road comprises three gables, that to the right having decorative framing and overshadowing the pair to the left. Paired segmental-arched windows to ground floor with heavy voussoirs divided by corbel carrying upper oriel window. Other windows on first and second floors are mullioned lights with small pane sashes of original design. Jettied upper storeys are timbered with close studding and quatrefoil panelling in apex of gable. Stone dressings to windows in brick storeys, timber mullions above. Return to Deanery Way comprises two gables divided by a chimney breast. Each gable has segmental-arched window with stone voussoirs in brick lower storey, and mullioned sash windows in rendered upper storeys. Half-timbered jettied attic gables with mullioned windows in upper storeys. Stone pilaster at one side supports jettying of left hand gable. Lower wing beyond has high central entrance with segmental pediment, and flanking sash windows. Similar very tall sash windows with brick dressings in rendered upper storey. Decorative railings and rainwater furniture.

    Nice set. We didn't manage to get around much of the internals on our trip. The scaffold was up so it would have been rude / irresponsible not to have got some external roof shots.

    I got £70 out of the Italian Job fruity in there, always a decent start to the night before heading to Volts on the hunt for slappers

    Oh god yeah, Volts! Memories of being gently "ejected" via the fire escape and bouncing about the dance floor like a prick :oops:

    How do you get in? Are there any reports of the place being Haunted? I'm trying to find some haunted places to visit.

    People do not discuss access on public forums Ally.

    And no, this place is not haunted (because there are no such things as ghosts)

    (admin edit - don't quote the whole report again)

    Great pics. I went in this place about a month ago on my own. I'm new to this to so it was my first visit of this kind.

    The vault has turned into a pretentious hipster place since it reopened last year :(

    Yeah I heard, everywhere in Stockport has gone to shit over the last 20 years, we used to have loads of decent pubs and a couple of shit nightclubs but they've all closed or been changed into trendy bars.
