    Default Old Exhibition Building, Stanton By Dale, Derbyshire


    I was driving around Derbyshire the other day when I came across this derelict building. It looks like a 1930's building and my Dad thinks it was something to do with Stanton Ironworks. The Google Map can be found here:

    I couldn't get inside, but you can look through the letterbox! It's empty and very spooky! I don't know how long it's been derelict for or what's going to be done with it, but I think it's well worth a visit.

    There's also a disused railway line that goes along the back of the building (I assume it's disused but I might be wrong) and looking on Google Maps, it looks like you can walk a long way on it, taking in some good industrial sights!



    Here are some photos I've taken. I've kind of sepia toned them, but the place probably looks better in colour :P

    I was there today after a failed attempt at Stanton ironworks, I believe this part is still in use for storage after I saw a forktruck there. The building next door is even more derelict than this!
    It is part of the Stanton site too :)
    Nice pictures!
