    will also say, sadly the place has also been a victim of the traffic passing through it With artifacts going missing. Some explorers out there should be called Burglars as that's basically what they are Thieves

    The floor cleaners are a throwback to the famous old hoover room and the lesser photographed floor buffer rooms in West Park, it makes me smile seeing something similar again.

    Great pics, probably not a good idea to mention how easy access is with so many places getting arson hits nowadays plus its still a live site.

    Sealed like a jam jar according to Brewtal's sources, I must have just had a lucky day :)

    It was during the 2015 summer pile in. As mookster quite rightly put, it appears to be inspired by the West Park hoovers. They're known to move about a bit, as wild floor polishers do. I've seen pictures of them being ridden by various people. Not sure why. They always come back into (more or less) the illustrated formation eventually. Prior to that they were all parked up next door.


    It's looking a bit the worse for wear and a little sparser these days. The place still does a nice external mind.

    Aye, floor polishing machines move around a bit but they eventually flock together again, a bit like sheep do - presumably for protection against wolves.

    If I'm going to be honest with you, I was in there recently, and it looked like the German's had done a bombing run on the place.

    To be fair, that's quite a nice collection of floor polishers - but the best I've seen was in one of the wards at Glen Struan Hospital. Now long forgotten, but it was a popular spot back in the day.

    Looks like a bowling alley
