    Default Bricket Wood Leisure Centre, St Albans, England - December 2018


    This one has a bit of a bittersweet ending for me really/. It's practically on my doorstep but I didn't find out about it till about 2016/17 and it closed in 2010 with much disgust from the locals!

    I had tried and failed it numerous times because of either filming taking place on site; or workmen.

    I went to check it out just before Christmas and found it to have a small demo crew inside who very kindly granted me 15 minutes in the pool area only, and they came and checked on me every 3 or 4 mins. It had been partly gutted by this point and they were so nice, I kept to my word and only left with a few photos.

    Hints were dropped of the quietness of the site around the Christmas Period; but I had my disabled partner, Pearl staying for a few weeks, and I had booked several weeks off work to be with her as to me, that was far more important!!! So I didn't bother returning.

    Still; I am also glad I didn't leave empty handed!

    I keep seeing this place pop up on facebook, been meaning to go for a while.
    Don't worry about security until you've been caught.
