This is a repost due to changing image hosts.
First report so I hope all's in order.

Drive past this site quite regularly but never got round to checking it out before so thought I’d have a mooch about. The majority of the place is totally gutted and quite a lot of it is fire damaged. I could have sworn there was someone in there with us but didn’t see anyone in the couple of hours we spent there.

Couldn’t find much info on this building sadly. Originally the Armstrong Whitworth apprentice school, latterly split up and sublet to various businesses including A1 Blinds, Custom Print and Northern Interiors. Set on fire twice, once in August 2010 and again in May 2013.

I’m not particularly pleased with the photos but there’s very little on this site so I thought them worth posting.
