Its been a while since I've posted on here, I said I wouldn't post anymore as I noticed alot of people were using this site and there ABC's to urbex and noticed a few places I have done were getting tourbussed with the usual made up backstory.

However after a few months of thinking I've decided to come back as I do enjoy using the site and posting my reports. So screw it.
Anyways decided to vist Bradford, this was the only place I explored there that I thought was worth a report.
The building was stripped and didn't have much left of its former usage, as work has began to be converted into flats.
However this building is huge, upper floors were completely stripped.
Nice to see summit like this getting some usage in the future.
Acess wasn't difficult, however a screeching alarm and motion sensors cut the vist in half.
Not bad for a drive past on the way to some of Bradfords derps.

History on the place

The building was designed by Bradford-based architects Benjamin Chippindale and Richard J. Edmondson in 1936 as a purpose-built printing works and office headquarters for W.N Sharpe Ltd and was completed in 1937.
It was the home of Hallmark Cards until they relocated to Dudley Hill several years ago.
Based in Bingley Road, Heaton, the historic Grade-II listed building was bought for £6.5 million in 2018, and plans for almost 400 flats were submitted.

I used to work here in the early 1990's you should have seen what it was like before Hallmark bought it out and shipped off all the lovely art deco interiors off to Kansas City.
