The Explore
I'd heard stories of this place being completely sealed and alarmed but thought I'd try it out anyway.. no sign of anything of the sort and was in and out with no problem at all. Maybe not the best day to be exploring dusty old control rooms filled with pigeons with the heat we've had lately but a decent little explore nonetheless. The banks of the River Irwell was a nice place to chill out for a while afterwards anyway :)

The History
Opening in 1925 and closing in 1993, agecroft was responsible for providing 100,000kw of electricity to the surrounding areas. The site was once a bustling site of energy with cooling towers on site...however these were demolished in 1994 leaving the control room and other parts of the building to decay. The site closed in 1993.

Stumbled on another interesting room while looking for the actual control room
