    Arrow Frog Island Mills, Leicester


    Ive been wondering about this place for years, but it always seemed the same externally. Then myself and Mr Sam noticed some changes, so we got a group together and headed down there. Most of the stuff we found on the upper floors appeared to be from 1998/9. It also appeared someone started some refurbishment work around 2005, but then gave up. At the moment I cannot find any history on the place, other than it was used in more recent years by a number of different companies. It is pretty bare inside, but is also quite mint, the chavs seem to have stuck to the top floor for some reason. Visited with MD, Mr Sam, Boothy, Waynezbitz1, and Littlelaura

    Nice explore there guys.

    There not be much to see, but it's nice to see a building not trashed by the local scum, or at least a lot of it :)

    Love the goods chute, bet that was fun

    However, a little story from my school days. There was a guy called John Leech in the year above me and he was a bit of a twat in all fairness, always trying to act the big man, but never quite cutting the mustard!
    Anyway one day he was sliding down the art block stairway on the foot wide hardwood handrail," nothing wrong with that" i hear you say.
    There is a lot wrong with that when you have a spade in your hand and try to stop yourself with it halfway down to talk to your mate!!!
    Yes, youv'e guessed it, a big splinter right through his testicle

    Not so much of a comedy entrance for him, bloody funny though!

    Just remember guys and girls, old timber can be hazardous
