Right here's the second attempt.

The history is from Wikipedia.


Formby Power Station railway station was a railway station on the Liverpool, Crosby and Southport Railway, situated south of Hogshill Lane and just north of the River Alt. The station opened c. 1917 as a small halt for employees of the nearby power station at Formby, a railway installation which generated current for the Liverpool—Southport line. The station closed c. 1944, while the power station itself closed in 1946, though the line remains open and is today used by trains on the Merseyrail Northern Line.

The power station building was later used by Metal Closures Rosslite Ltd as a factory producing expanded polystyrene packaging and insulation products, and then as a business centre. The site is now derelict, however recently plans have been announced to convert the building for residential use

From what I can find out the last business closed in about 92'93 so it's been empty for 20 years or so. It's been stripped to a shell but I imagine in it's hayday it must have been impressive. The site is at the end of hogs hill lane.

The next two where from the lower ground floor, We only had a couple of small torches. So I ran round like a knob head with a flashgun.

I hope this makes up for my first really bad attempt.
