    Also, the pics are WAY, WAY, WAY overcooked and look like mince. Post the originals ffs.

    At the end of the day, if DP thinks this constitutes a thread then there are serious problems as this subject matter is bad without the crap editing and worse with terrible content.,
    Sure you are entitled to your own opinion about threads but if you don't like it, why be so rude against somebody who has taken the time to take these photographs and post them here!?



    I can see somebody was never taught "if you have nothing good to say, don't say anything" phrase.

    I always explore in my work boots ( I bet work wonder why they wear so fast lol ), they've got steel mid-soles to protect against stepping on nasties If this type of building is your thing then might be worth considering some.

    twominted, I think your dummy has landed here if you would like it back? (probably no point as you'll probably spit it back out at some point lol)

    I'd also go with the opinion that this site has been used as a school, or more likely a night-school/college. Probably teaching TV repair at one time, and music lessons by the looks of it.

    oh, and Twominted - I politely suggets you wind your neck in, at least until youve posted a few reports of your own. And if you are going to post such derrogatory stuff, perhaps inprove your spelling, for the life of me i cant find the crab on the floor you refered to!

    This was indeed the former labour exchange and the dhss 'dole' office where unemployed would sign on. Luckily only ever having been unemployed for 12 months this is where I signed on' in the late 80's and then it was starting to decay quite badly. Early 90's it also became a temporary job centre as per the os maps. For a short time it then became a leisure complex including small bowling alley / game machines etc and finally I believe it was a small workshop repairing tv's etc. Never known it as a school as such. As per the YMCA building very close to it, there's been talk of doing something with it but I think various fires over the years has ruled this out and hopes appear to be diminishing to refurbish it. Not having seen inside the building for many years, very sad to now see the mess it's in.

    Nothing wrong with posting an 'unknown' building and asking for help with info on it. I think thats even in the posting rules. It's a derelict place after all.

    I really need to get some boots or something. I explore alone far too often and worry I'll end up hurting myself. Cheers for the reality check.

    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    Yep since this visit I've got some proper boots lol. It was the 2 hr hospital wait that was the worst part!

    Yes, this was the old Job Centre/Labour Exchange as far back as I can remember.
    My schoolfriend and I had a "den" underneath a part of the old YMCA building, he told me his father went to a building somewhere between the ymca and job centre for freemasonic meetings!
