INTRODUCTION
We got the train to Mosley hill (HATE NORTHEN TRAINS) and walked down towards the site, we sat on a wall for a bit pretending to be just hanging out chatting. When no cars were around I made the move and climbed over the wall with my friend. Inside the site we didn't know what to expect, I had scouted the site out earlier and I did see some minor activity at the gates so initially we snuck around looking out for sensors and 24hr CCTV but after realising that there wasn't any of that is the main areas we soon let down our guard and walked around the site like we were meant to be there...

...but first a little history

HISTORY
Carnatic hall was an 18th-century mansion that was located in Mossley Hill, Liverpool, England.
The house was built in 1779 for slave trader Peter Baker, who served as Mayor of Liverpool in 1795. Originally on the site of Mossley Hall (home of the Ogden family) it was renamed Carnatic Hall by Baker after the French East Indiaman Carnatic, which the privateer Mentor, which Baker owned, had captured in October 1778. Carnatic was said to be the richest prize ever taken and brought safe into port by a Liverpool adventurer, being of the value of £135,000.[2][3] In 1891 the house burned down and the then owner, Walter Holland, had a hall built in the same style.[4]
In 1947 by The University of Liverpool purchased Carnatic Hall as a home for the University of Liverpool Museum. In 1964 the mansion was demolished and replaced with student accommodation, the Carnatic Halls of Residence.[5] This consisted of six residences: McNair Hall, Salisbury Hall, Rankin Hall, Morton House, Lady Mountford Hall, and Dale Hall.
In 2018, it was announced that the Carnatic Student Village would be closing.

EXPLORE
We walked around one of the buildings near where we entered the site and found this utility room.

I really like how this place doesn't feel abandoned.

after exploring that little section we decide to move on towards the main area. This place is huge so we were never gonna explore all of it.

Okay now I have to apologise for this next bit I was a bit worried that the Liverpool echo was gonna try and rip a story out of this as its not a common explore (as you can see from the pristine condition of the buildings) so I've vandalised the photos in photoshop to make it unusable to the echo.

its a shame really because they could turn this place into some kind of community centre/park or something like that but its just gonna become ANOTHER HOUSING ESTATE!
1655203210550.png

With these abandoned places they are rather getting turned into luxury apartment or modern housing estate or its grade 2 listed so they cant do anything with it and its just left to rot sad really like.

After walking across the field and trying to find a way into some of the building we came across this staircase on the Rankin hall.

My daughter stayed in one of the older student blocks there for a while - pretty grim.

Not sure what's going with the 'manc echo' though - thought the echo was a Liverpool paper.

Owned by a company based in Manchester and is printed in Manchester, it's pretty much a running gag with many scouse people to call it that. The reputation of the paper has gone down the bin in recent years.

Ah, I see - can't say I ever read it except when google come up with something they've published - shows how non-scouse I really am.
