    Royal Mail’s Copperas Hill sorting office closed down in October 2010,it employed 600 people in the city and although most have chose to move to Warrington,other's chose redundancy.
    The building is severall floors high and set within 3 and a half acres.

    The closure means Liverpool is the only major city in the UK without a sorting office.

    In its biggest ever single land purchase Liverpool John Moores University put pen to paper to take ownership of the building for a rumoured price of £2.6 million.
    Although plans are in their infancy the building will be refurbished rather than demolished and transformed as a lecture base and likely to house departments such as admissions and student support.

    It is also expected to open by 2014 ahead of the sell-off of the university’s IM Marsh campus and help absorb departments based at the Aigburth site including faculties for education, community and leisure.
    The university said the purchase would form the “epicentreâ€￾ of its 10-year campus development plan.

    Since its closure we have often spoke about trying to crack this place,luckily a chance arose thanks to an Art Exhibition as part of the Biennial 2012 in the old loading bay.
    Now was our chance to see where we could end up within the buildings,as we glanced over the art from afar(shite!!),Sparkuk gestured us over he had found an open door to the out of bounds sections.(Good work!!).

    Initially,we didn't expect to get far but then we came across more doors unlocked then the stairs so up we went.After a quick reccee we started off on the rooftop and worked our way down checking the rooms on each floor.Tbh the place was bigger then i expected.

    It was quite a buzz sneaking around the building half expecting to get rumbled.All went to plan until we got to the basement,soon as we got near the door,an alarm went off.Shit!! time to head out.
    We made our way back to the exhibition and just took in the views,we saw security head in and make his way towards the off limits part.It was our cue to get out,we said our thanks at the helpdesk and as we headed through the entrance he called out Thanks,please call again.I found that ironic as we had took the piss and wandered everywhere we shoudn't have.

    Visited with Georgie,Sparkuk and The young un.
