    Hi! I'm an exploration newbie and was wondering if any older and wiser members had some tiptop recommendations for first time places to explore around Stockport. I love dark photography, abandoned buildings and such, the creepier the better! I'm 16, from Stockport and as a kid would always explore the creepy neighbours house with my mates. Just started photography and I think it would be cool to get some nice shots around Stockport! :p

    Dark as in underground, or dark as in seedy and weird?

    Welcome along :thumb Quite a bit to bash at around town. I'd say stick to something easy whilst you get to grips with your camera.

    Welcome in Blacklight! Myself and @FreshFingers are sisters and like to think we know the more seedier parts of town. As she says, why not bung up a few flix and who knows! ;)

    And it's currently being converted into flats

    *Edit*

    Just realised you mean St. Thomas hospital which is even further away from being an asylum than Barnes

    They took the cameras down and the security guards don't do anything.
    I went there a few weeks ago on a Sunday and the security guard caught me and a friend. He told us that we can stay but the buildings are very dangerous.
