    Thanks :)
    Great set of pics mate. Don't know how you dared to go in all those rooms! I only hung around outside LOL!

    Anyone know why they don't just demolish everything? Surely it would save money to flatten the whole site so no more fire brigades and ploice officers had to keep coming out!?

    You will have to go back, PM me if you are up for a revisit. The building is safe, it is just the chavs you need to watch out for...
    I am pretty fearless, it does help in such a hobby (not boasting or 'owt )

    Will definitely let you know if I'm going to re-visit. How do you get to places if you don't drive?

    Ashless myself and tomspki spent ages trying to find the projector room...we felt sure at first that it must be ABOVE the boiler room

    Nah my theory was that it had been bricked up like Odeon pointed out, if you remember?

    Shame about this one, but its been comprehensively documented by dozens of folk in various states of decay so it was hardly forgotten like some places I can think of :(

    God! Its a real shame to see it so trashed :( :( but still, some great pics regardless!!
    Every room has a trail of brown radiator water leading from where the radiator was fixed to the wall to the door it was taken through.

    James, I'm up for another visit there whenever you fancy. Is down the road from me too plus I know other local sites to Aston.

    I used to chew a piece of lead (curtain weight) when I was a kid, might explain my shite memory now !
    James, if your up for a visit this week, I might tag along.
    Maybe you could teach me about this fearless stuff ! I'm a real chicken when it comes to angry mobs...... :(
