    Hello people :)
    These pics were taken on two seperate visits.

    History:
    The GNR warehouses were constructed in 1857 by Thomas Hine for the storage of grain from the railway.
    They were abandoned in the 1980s (I think).
    In 2005, the bodies of two homeless women were found inside one of the buildings, and the buildings are notorious for drug addicts :eek:
    Thankfully, we didn't see or hear anything except for pigeons :p

    Anyway, here are my pics:

    Outside:

    In this building, there was a lot of nice architecture still visible, despite the graffiti.
    I believe that the two homeless women were found dead in this building :eek:

    Some kind of platform, probably where the carriages came in to unload the grain from the railways:

    Piles of stones:
