Report - East Lane House Runcorn (Cheshire, Mar, 2018)

Heading over the new Runcorn bridge I got a bit lost and ended up passing this horrible thing. Despite the fact that its clearly just a partly boarded-up shell I actually quite enjoyed wandering round - something about big empty spaces I suppose.

History. Was originally government offices (Department of Employment) and has apparently been a vacant eyesore for about 20 years - see recent Liverpool Echo article https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/council-backs-taking-legal-action-14173144.

There are two previous reports on here where you can follow the progress from trashed offices to shell:

2009 https://www.28dayslater.co.uk/threads/office-block-east-lane-runcorn-september-2009.43033/

Pictures go from the ground up.

looks just as shit as it did in 2009 - I'm sure they are converting/building new houses there. it'll be another southgate estate in the middle of the other shitty estates.
Apparently the plan is to turn the existing building into flats - handy for the probation office directly opposite. Some work is going on - there was a guy doing something on the ground floor when I was there.

Local haunt where we used to have games of manhunt back in around 2006, not much has changed it was a bare shell even back then, currently being converted Into flats and seems boarded up pretty tight, would be curious as to the point of entry as I live local to this and wouldn't mind another mooch around after all these years, if op could drop me a message would be much appreciated.
