Ok so here is my report on the former department store/Co-op in Woolwich. Its the first place ive explored properly and was quite an expireince, lift shafts where left wide open for any drunk hobo to stumble into, for all i knew there could of been a bodie in there. The place is proper trashed since 2008 and since other reports of the place. Shame we didnt catch it before it went bad

*History*
The building was an extention of the main RACS building across the road from this one, it proposed in 1936 and opend in 1938 but did not open fully until after the war as many Co-op staff where called out to war duties. It has fetured in the film 'Children of men' and was on the childrens TV program 'The Greatest Store In The World' in 1999.

The photos arent great as the where taken with a point and shoot, plus my photography isnt exactly great either but i was mainly focusing on getting out there alive. Photos may be similar to Ac1d's as we went on the same route.
