    - Chance Technical College -

    This building is massive, you could literally spend all day there searching, taking photos and still not of been around it all.

    Visited 4 times and eventually went everywhere I could (I think)... Although in earlier/other reports I've seen a room with a piano in and I never found that, annoyingly.

    Sorry about the amount of photos to follow... (Photos in two parts, see reply below.)

    For a college which I believe was up-to-date and closed in 2011-2012 this was strange to see.

    The first couple of times I visited I found the xmas tree packed in the box on the floor, then the next time I visited as I was walking down the corridor into that room I saw it was built up, was an odd feeling.

    Closer. Exploring very light on feet.

    My last visit, made my get away out of the exit doors in the hall hesitantly (instead of walking all the way back through most of the college blocks), it leads right out onto the main road opposite the police station entrance, waited/hid until no cars were coming out the police station then ran forward and hopped the gate (although having a broken wrist), as I got to the gate and jumped a black car came out the entrance (just hoping it wasn't undercover) so I ignored it and walked very quickly away.



    It's an amazing abandoned building, probably always going to be one best I've been to... Just for the sheer size, definitely go if you get the chance.

    -Thanks,
