    I hate you! There's so much good stuff to explore within easy access of derby, but I have to catch 3 trains to get anywhere half decent!

    Top report, my favourite photo has to be the first one and the water tower looks impressive. Well done for climbing it, I haven't seen that much before.

    Btw have you checked out the general hospital in Mansfield?

    Haha, this was a fair treck from Derby, it helps to have a friend with a car who like exploring :)
    Thanks for the compliment anyway, I haven't checked out the hospital in Mansfield, but we may do it soon. Looks good :)

    Some great shots there guys, particularly like the walkway shots in the roofs.

    Looks like an interesting place, cheers for posting.
