    not sure if this is best place to post, but before I drive over that way, anobody know if its still standing?

    I'm sure I read a post saying all gone now, but a search or two on here says otherwise (though I may have missed something obvious!)

    If its there I'll pause for a nosey!

    I dont think its gone, i check it every now and again. It had the rest of its windows bricked up after we visited which scuppered our access point but im always in hope someone will take a sledge to it for me!

    Not him personally he means some other cranks do it, it does happen that's how access is normally created.

    Yep tried it just before Xmas, and failed miserably. the place is locked down pretty tight with a police security post too close for comfort. So for once 'up the pikeys'

    It's definitely gone now because I demolished it in 2013, it was an interesting place inside though with some cool stuff up in the control room

    It's still there but most of it has been stripped, I had a look last week and all the obvious access points are bricked up again

    Yep. Building is still there but everything of note inside has been stripped. Even the ceiling was cut out. Pretty sure they did it to stop any kind of ideas people had about listing the building.

    We got in about a year ago I think and yep everything is gone. I think the only reason it's still there is because a lot of bats nest their. It's not bat mans secret lair. The first time I got in some years ago and I'm guessing the bat people had painted on all the controls KEEP OUT. Still worth it.
