Same place - different name.

This place...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manchester_Cathedral_Steps

Visited with Stepping Lightly, thank you.

The layout of this place can be summarised by a number of arched rooms all leading back to a long corridor. Generally, all rooms are accessible from the corridor.

There's a lot of pictures, please be patient...

Corridor shot, including 'the' sign...

On another internal wall, near the river...

Now this might look like a pile of rotting timber (because it is)....

...but there's a good possibility that it's the remains of an external fixture, like one of these...

Collapsed aircon, on a pile of rubble....

Most of the rooms had this rubble, earth and old household waste in them, it had been transported in there, rather than being dropped in through the surface, or a collapse.

Direction signs painted on the walls...

Weird aircon and an internal whitewashed wall...

Re: Manchester Cathedral Steps - 25/07/07 - REPORT

And just where do those windows lead too?? They imply that they must have been a source of fresh air at some point, maybe in the bottom of some kind of pit or well space; I'm assuming that the pit/well is now capped?
The windows are at the higher level (the corridor level). The gents toilets are on a lower level down some steps. Underneath these windows are a couple of 'utility' rooms...
