Mepal Outdoor Centre
Stuck for something to do today (29/12/19) , i had a mooch around a couple of abandoned buildings.
Not really much to write home about, both had been trashed. Although this site had some decent Graff.

Mepal Outdoor Centre is based around a 22-acre lake, the purpose-built outdoor activity centre was well used by schools, colleges and youth groups who stayed at the centre’s in-house accommodation to take part in adventure activities such as sailing, archery, canoeing and rock climbing.

The centre had its first brief closure in September 2012 when the Charitable Trust was struggling to break even. The charity was attempting to get a grant or loan from the local council for around £85,000, which was turned down. The money was intended to help ease cash flow problems. In October 2012 the Mepal Outdoor Centre Charitable Trust joined forces with Cambridgeshire ACRE, a charity based in Ely, and the centre soon reopened in the Easter of 2013.
In December 2016, the Centre was struck by an arson attacked which caused £100,000s worth of structural damage. By February 2017 the outdoor centre was closed for good, and the lease for the site was handed back to East Cambridgeshire District Council, who are now exploring future options for the site.

December 2018 the site was used for a Christmas day Rave.

I only had my Fisheye lens with me on this visit.

Not a bad effort, few similar looking pics, maybe focus on individual features with the next one and not 2 or 3 of almost same feature/content :thumb
