    Know what you mean, KA. I love that about abandoned buildings, where nature's gradually reclaiming it. Really like pic 2 as well - something about the composition that makes you want to see more.

    Cheers :)

    This place is at high risk of being demo'd this year. Been up tonight on the way home from my folks place. Anyone up for a return trip before it goes? I really want to see all the good stuff!!!!

    Superb little explore, this. I'd totally forgotten about it. Be a good one to do during the Brum meet maybe?

    Sorry about any info left that shouldn't have been.
    The place is just so amazing. Anyone who hasn't been should try and get up there. I pulled up the car today and just sat there infront of the building. No-one around, listening to the wind blow through the place. Its just got something about it. On a moody day you could almost imagine it was still in working order, the amount of noises it make!!!!!:)

    A word of advice to watch the floors here, I put an ankle through a soggy floorboard when I took these photos. It would be easy to make a painful mistake.

    Yeah, the place seemed a bit un-stable. I almost put my hand on a syringe when climbing in part of it. I'm not sure I'd go up to the roof for the reason of safety. The old wooden stairs look a little unsafe!!!
