    This was one of the first places i wanted to explore after the flop bishops avenue last summer.

    Its true that there is no history on this place, it was up for sale.

    This is from Foundmypad.com

    A redundant substation site (extending to approximately 0.44 acres) situated adjacent to The Bishops Avenue, with excellent potential for residential development, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.

    The site extends to approximately 0.44 acres (0.178 hectares). The site slopes gently from north west to south east.

    The site comprises a redundant substation building which is well set back from the road. We understand it was constructed in c.1939. It is arranged over basement, ground and two upper floors (in part) beneath a flat roof. Its use as a substation ceased in 2000 and it has since been vacant. The building is in a dilapidated internal condition and all plant has been removed. The remainder of the site comprises open yard space.

    The Explore

    what can i say exploring in the rain..never again..nearly slipped and busted my ass, but had to carry on

    was a really quick one, only because the place is practically pitch black an my torch batteries nearly ran out.

    Yeah would have looked great without it, such a shame there wasn't any natural light in there

    No worries, you still managed some decent snaps.
    It's always worth taking shit loads of batteries in your bag.
