well here we go my first report, and also first 1st use of a DSLR!
Visited with a non EU friend.

The college was sold in 2011 for redevelopment for new house , most rooms were locked and bloody cold on the fingers :gaylol.

Brief bit of history now , Hinckley Union workhouse was built in 1838 on London Road in Hinckley and was designed by JA Hansom. The Poor Law Commissioners authorised an expenditure of £4,450 on construction of the building which was intended to accommodate 300 inmates.

After World War II the Technical College was extended on to the London Road site formerly occupied by the workhouse, in part utilising some of that institution's old outbuildings. It was later renamed Hinckley College of Further Education. More recently it was absorbed into a much larger institution, the North Warwickshire and Hinckley College.

Date: 1973-1976.The Junction Disco was a Friday night venue based in the Youth Centre located in the grounds of the Hinckley Technical College.
