    So, finally got a chance to visit this place as I've been wanting to the past month.

    I noticed that in the past week there has been a large hole in the side of the building where a window has been taken out by the demo men.

    Knowing that demo work was well and truly underway, I knew that time was getting on, and that if I left it any longer the place would either be locked up tight or there wouldn't be anything worth seeing inside.

    We got there for about 7:30, and while there was no traffic, crawled under the fence and made a dash.

    Once inside there was clear signs of demo work going on, such as hi-viz jackets, empty drinks cans etc.

    Me mate mentioned that he could see a caravan outside, and we could both hear an electricity generator running into the caravan, something wasn't right.

    We had an explore for about 2 hours, and while we were both down in the cellar (which was pitch black), I said I needed to pop back upstairs to get my head torch out of my bag.

    So, there I am, crouched in the corridor looking in my bag, when I look up to see a man in a dust suit staring at me....

    He asked what I was doing there, and I just said 'Fair play mate, I shouldn't be here, you've caught me etc etc'

    Once he'd seen we both had cameras and obviously weren't stealing anything etc he had a chat with us about how the demo work was going, and told us that the whole place is being flattened to build a care home, which surprised us, as we thought they'd just renovate the old building.

    We had a chat with him, and he was canny, just said we can't stay for obvious reasons, which was fair enough, so we left.

    Anyway, enough of my chatter, on with the photos.
