‘Dale Hall’ comprises a couple of student accommodation blocks, part of Liverpool University’s Carnatic site. Built in the 70’s it closed at the end of 2014 and has remained boarded up ever since. A recent fire (probably arson) in one wing of the larger block prompted a visit. I wasn’t expecting much - student housing has got to be down there with empty office blocks in terms of interest - but guessed there would probably be a few bits and pieces left, particularly as this is a large place. Judging by the amount of re-boarding the local scallies have been getting in, and all the copper piping has (inevitably) been removed.

View from the rear. The fire-damaged section is the blackened bit under the tree (indicated by the black triangle in the map below). The smaller annexe block is out of shot to the left.

Typical student room, all the same, like little cells.

The ‘wallpaper’ on the right is actually the pattern formed by oily smoke and condensation in one of the stairwells.

You know an explore is a bit dull when the boiler room starts to look interesting.
