Quite your typical 60s office block this one, vacated by the Whessoe Oil and Gas company quite recently by the look of it. The scale of vandalism though going on in this part of Darlington is quite shocking. The damage to the building is as extensive as anything I've seen (apart from Billingham house) but sustained over a very short time.

The building still had new clean carpets, full electical power, live lift machinery and a live alarm system beeping away with a fault status. But as you'll see its been left to the locals to trash.

On with the photos, it turned out to be an enjoyable explore with no1rich, we started at the top and were not expecting much at first, but it got less chav'ed the lower we decended.

Notice the brand new building opposite has had its nice new glazing smashed.

Was beginning to think there wasn't going to be much more to it, then we found the immaculate board room.

Annoyingly, access to the roof was prevented by this cage, weirdly all the lift machinery was very much live humming away wasting electricity - had nobody thought to turn it off?
