A safe storage for wallpaper and stuffed animals, located in front of piccadilly station and that pub that got hit by a bus. It once used to house a fire station, police station, an ambulance station, a bank, a Coroner's Court, and a gas-meter testing station.

There's a long history of failed attempts, stretching back the last 3 years or so. Some months back Gone had successfully managed to get onto the site, just to be caught minutes later by a worker.
With the access point there, the sun out and uni/work finished, the four of us set off to give it another go.
After a quick climb and run up the stairs we successfully made it to the top of the tower, which greeted us with yet another new view of manchester. Moving down to the roof, we could watch the evening approaching. It was time to mobilise the rest of the SNC for a derp night out in your firestationz.​

Wiki:
London Road Fire Station was build in 1906 and also housed a police station, an ambulance station, a bank, a Coroner's Court, and a gas-meter testing station. The fire station operated for 80 years, housing the firemen, their families, and the horse drawn appliances that were replaced by motorised vehicles a few years after its opening.

The building was the headquarters of the Manchester Fire Brigade until 1974. The fire station closed in 1986, since when it has been largely unused despite several redevelopment proposals by the owner Britannia Hotels.
