    Agreed, not the usual run of the mill shots - well done. :)

    Must admit that Sleaford Maltings is one of very few places that made me feel ill at ease when I was wandering around it - and at that point there was no dog to worry about IIRC.

    We had gone there today, it's a beautiful place but really isn't worth the hastle or distance there is no where to get in at all now, we got in luckily from a lock that was broken on the door but was in there for no longer than 20 mins and just turned ourselves in because all the security had realised we was there through infrared cameras that are dotted almost everywhere, also had the police arrive for a check up and search on us because they was curious that it was us who broke the lock off... I can still say was worth the few photos we got there but for anyone who hasn't been and wants to don't try because you will get caught fast :)

    Went to this place last year, got caught by 2 security and a dog, they had already called the police. Two cars arrived one of them containing the best human representation of good cop/ bad cop in one person I have ever had the misfortune to meet. Once he'd finished ranting he seemed pretty cool and sent us on our way.... about two weeks later I got a letter through from the local council saying that should I ever be caught in Lincolnshire again, they would pursue an ASBO for me and my fellow explorers. I'm 53 with kids and grandkids and to be honest was a little bit proud to be growing old disgracefully, it's put me off Lincolnshire though ..

    Great pics by the way, you got to see more than we did :)

    There is a way to turn the buildings into apartments that would leave the external brick walls unaltered - Completely gut out the existing interiors, point and repair all outside and interior brickwork and then paint all interior walls white and repair all windows and doors. Then construct a concrete apartment block inside each brick structure - this new structure is not connected to the old except by an entrance tunnel on ground floor, but the windows and balconies of the new align with the old windows. Once accommodation block is built inside, the original roofs to the brick buildings are reconstructed and the original view point is restored, the structures are saved and more importantly, urgently needed housing is made available Seen this done on a small scale with the front facades and side walls of a couple of country mansions - the important view of the frontage is not destroyed, but modern, affordable flats can be produced also. Listing property like this without a proper plan for a 'new use' in place at same time often leads to more destruction rather than salvation.

DerelictPlaces is a forum for people with an interest in the history and documentation of disused, derelict and abandoned buildings to come together and share their experiences, photography and historical findings. Our military, industrial and historical heritage is fast disappearing under the pressure of regeneration, the need for new housing, and often through simple neglect; Our aim is to document these places before they disappear entirely.
