Ok, so my site where all my history was seems to be down. (leodis.net) But as far as I can remember there wasn't really much about the history other than it used to be a counting house for Yorkshire Bank :)

I had gone out after finishing work (at 3am) to visit two sites, I feel the first one (the old sikh mosque in Chapeltown) deserves an honorable mention as it had lots of history (insert broken link here :D) and I spent ages spidermanning it all over the rooves trying to find an AP that was suitable for a man of my stature!

There have been a couple of proposals to convert the sorting office, but there has been strong opposition from the local community as everything proposed so far has been deemed too large.

I had gone in the wee hours due to it being on a major road, this definitely added to the excitement, apart from loads of stupid pigeons making me jump. Someone else had obviously got a lot more fed up of this than me as one had been hung in a doorway, euch!

There isn't really much to see in the upper floors, its all been stripped back ready for demolition. The real payoff here is the 2 floor vault in the basement.

Sorry about the blur, but I was shooting manual and couldn't see for the life of me what I was focusing on!

I had a good hour and a half in here before I started to get the willies *ahem* I mean it started getting close to commuter o'clock so I headed home.

Cheers :thumb
