History
Designed by the architectural practice of Bradshaw, Gass & Hope and opening on the 24th September 1957, the building looks out onto the public square which it shares with the former Central Fire Station. Following the amalgamation of forces within Greater Manchester in 1974 it continued to operate as the GMP Salford Division Headquarters until its closure in the ,od tp the late 2000s Originally the local council had planned to demolish the former Police Station with the view to sell the land to the neighbouring Salford University, however at the last minute the building was saved from demolition because of its historic frontage. Over the last decade, there have been several plans to reuse the as flats, this would see two additional floors built on what is now the roof of the building with additional housing being constructed to the rear of the building, however, these plans have recently been rejected by Salford Council and the future of the building still remains in doubt.
Explore
While not the most challenging explore on both occasions, it was a very cool and interesting building. There are tons of little pieces to find in here with a lot more than I originally expected. The atmosphere inside was the constant banging of the doors and windows which kept me on my toes. While the building is far past its best it is still highly enjoyable with many grand features left.

Cool photos, difficult to photograph in some parts as it's so dark. Love this place for some reason. I agree the atmosphere is pretty creepy in there, especially in the basement. Feels like there's someone waiting round every corner.
