The GNL warehouse in Derby was built in 1877 by Krk & Ranndell of Sleaford to serve the nearby Friargate line goods yard.
The building is grade 2 listed and is basically now a roofless shell.

However the warehouse was built with a vast vaulted cellar which in more recent times was used by a number of different motortrade busineses. Each firm had one "arch" of the cellar, access was via an arched tunnel off great northern road.

We accessed from above, a 5 metre drop aided by a ladder, rope and a big pile of wood!

Anyway, heres some of my pictures from today. Sorry about the use of flash on some, my maglite wasn't bright enough for the big open spaces.
