    Enjoyed this place big time, props to everyone who smashed this one previously including the 2 non-forum members on the night

    A fair bit of handheld running, still I'm glad I finally pulled my finger out, this ones a true architect marvel!


    Central Library


    Town Hall Extension


    Once in, we ended up in here.. The basement of the Central Library

    After some poking about we headed for the North Staircase

    This leads off to many spaces in varying states of restoration

    Finally we headed 'up top'

    The temperature was fast dropping, so we headed back inside to the (slight) warmth the building had to offer...

    We headed back down to the sub-basement in search of tunnels which connect to the Town Hall Extension...

    After some crawling and stooping we arrived

    A central staircase once again allows conenction through the 8 stories

    21.jpg 22.jpg

    Many of the best features, (just like the library) have been removed or covered over whilst restoration takes place


    Still, there is much to see as you can imagine given the scale of the place

    Eventually we meandred our way into the upper reaches of the pitched roof spaces

    The only way is up..
