Pretty sure this has been demolished. Went there late last year and there were new houses on site. Unless of course I was mistaken and it was hiding behind a bush.

I don't know the site but it sounds to me like you were a bit too cautious with all the 'keep out' signs that are around. It's hardly the most high profile derp, at worst you might get shouted at by secca. Nothing to be afraid of from what I can see
Yeah looks that way lol but trust me, Its the prosecution signs that were fresh and littered everywhere that bothered me most, But hey maybe you have less to risk than me....By all means go take a look for yourself an get back to me mate ;)

it's not really my type of thing but you seem to have enjoyed it and got some good shots..heart pounding tho i think you may come across something at some point which really gets your heart thumping ;)
It may look that way mate but trust me the location its at is high risk (depends what you have to lose). Im not in it for the rush, or to show how big my balls are on this forum. I do it because i like the history

Like I said, I may have missed it. I mean with such a high risk factor I didn't stick around. That and I wanted a pint and a steak.
Hasnt been knocked down from what i know, These pics were taken last August while i was down there. a luxury resort surround the entire thing though

Wasn't easy to find at all, its in the middle of a 5 star resort, through the main gates and past the office buildings, then you have to go over security fencing opposite, and across a rotten bridge

its civil trespass so you really have nothing to worry about other than being told to leave or escorted off the area

Still the possibility of a law suite if the land owner were pissed off enough ( which i have read in other articles they are looking to make an example of whoever they catch) also possible the police can be called and names taken. A risk is a risk, you can ignore my risk factor by all means. But no harm in at least heeding a caution....just my opinion

even if police are called i doubt very much the landowner would press any charges..im not meaning to sound horrible but if your going to be worried of keep out signs i think your in the wrong hobby..i have had my name taken on numerous times and its all ended well..just push your luck and you will be fine

No offence taken :) trust me if i was that worried i wouldn't of gone in! haha. Just a friendly caution is all, no one has to obey it. I like my hobby very much and we all do it for different reasons after all. I was also hoping to put off anyone looking to get in for a 'trash the place party'. I dont see anything wrong with being cautious, thats just the way i do things (each to their own and all that). And for my own reasons id rather not be on any police radar at all!

Not a bad first report. Don't worry about those 'Trespassers will be prosecuted' signs, trespass is just a civil offence and the police will be more pissed off with the secca for troubling them. Read up on the laws of trespass, then you'll see the signs and think 'fuck off'
