    So after wanting to explore this site since the start of the year I finally took myself last Wednesday. Being only a 10 minute drive from me and having went to college there from 2002-2004 I knew the place quite well and with a few friends sharing someone's forum post on Facebook I thought I best get off my arse and get down there and see what all the fuss was about.

    All day id been gagging to finish work in excitement of exploring my old college, seeing what memories id could rediscover. We drove slowly past the site a few times scouting out which would be the best way in, the site is in the middle of an housing estate so we needed a route that was quick and easy. We eventually agreed on one, parked the car and went for it. Lets just say its more difficult to get into your local fish and chip shop on a Friday evening.

    It looked like a maintenance team had been on the site a few days before hand securing the site with wooden beams and new padlocks etc. Knowing the site well we eventually found a door with a panel beaten out and clambered through.

    I'm going to let my photos do most of the talking but my favourite parts were the canteen and sports block, mainly because that's where I spent most of my time when at college. It was sad to see the site like this but was awesome to go back and rekindle so many memories.

    This is my first ever report so I hope you enjoy it but if you've got any tips for me to improve my reports in the future please feel free to say.

    Thanks,

    Enjoy :)
