Picture shamelessly stolen from Dayna Farrington “Senior Reporter“ for the Worcester news
Wyre Forest Glades which was opened by Princess Diana in March 1986 finally shut up shop on Saturday, July 2 2016 after 30 years of service to the local community.
The future of the site of the Glades is unknown at present but the council are in various talks.
The new £11.9 million leisure centre at Silverwoods, the former British Sugar Site in Kidderminster to Stourport Road, opened the week after this one shut
After closure Wyre Forest District Council offered charities, voluntary groups and schools in the district, the chance to have equipment from Wyre Forest Glades Leisure Centre and Stourport Sports Centre free of charge.
The old site appears to have been a constant target for vandals with the first attack a week after it closed. There was also a suspected arson attack when a rear door was set alight.
West Mercia police were quoted as saying “Entering a derelict building is very dangerous and we would urge people to stay away” Take note people lol lol
This was the final stop off after a whirlwind weekend scouting around the local area with @Slayaaaa and a non-member including a failed attempt at the very much live Rolls Royce site lol
For this one we teamed up with @jdotn15 and @Jonesey as it was their lead.
After a wander around the outside of the place we noticed a way in chucked slayaaaa in and he came and opened a door for us
If you have never met slayaaaa the boy is like an eel and can slip into the smallest of gaps.
The place was pretty vandalised but still fun inside.
The tubes were fun although a bit wobbly to run down. As for the corridor covered in vegetable oil, that could so easily go wrong.
As always enjoy the pics
