This had been on my list for ages and I had noticed workers back in about a month ago, lousy economic recovery (mumble mumble). But I've only been urban exploring my new kitchen installation recently so couldn't get out until now.

It's pretty much a shell with some deadly asbestos in, the site is huge and it's crushing to think how nice it would have been if it was mint. :banghead

Anway, can't find any history on the place lurking around the internet. I'm assuming it was built in the 70's by the style and current plans are to turn it into 100 flats.



Airlock into contaimated bits, had my p3 mask but couldn't really be bothered going in to see yet another empty room


These were the entry "Tubestiles"



Inside the ducting spaces, sans ducting



Floor Plan 1


Floor Plan 2, This was the same in both wings on all 4 floors


The lift machinery was still in


This was the only phone we found in the whole place



Arthurs Seat from the roof


and last but certainly not least a view of the most interesting bits of the builders canteen:rolleyes:
