    Went recently and was chased away by security dogs which was a fright.

    Excellent.

    I'm so pleased others explore old prisons because I have a real fear of accidentally being locked inside :(

    For some reason it reminds me of my old high school mixed with the RVI hospital at Newcastle.
    Some interesting stuff in there and a rare look at what nice people like myself will hopefully never ever see!
    Full of meaty goodness.

    If I remember rightly when prisons close all the cell door locking mechanisms must be removed or rendered non-working to avoid that very thing. Might be making it up though.

    No you are absolutely right. My best mate works as a screw and I asked her about that! (Pre Holloway visit question!)

    Hi all,
    I joined up here many years ago to read and enjoy all of your posts on the many buildings that have just been left to rot. Some beautiful, some maybe less so, but hoped one day I could afford to buy one.
    It took a while but I scraped enough together and am now one of the purchasers of a small part of the Noranside estate. We're not property developers, just people who want to make something of it to live and work in.
    Could I ask that you all remove Noranside from your list of places to visit as it's no longer abandoned. Parts of it are occupied full time and there are guard dogs.

    Thank you, and please do keep exploring and photographing the genuinely empty places.

    Word is getting around that the place is secure and guard dogs are on site. Many congratulations on your purchase, I am very happy to hear Noranside is going to be saved. What are the plans for it? I’d love to know, as would many others.

    +1. I'm also glad that at least part of Noranside is going to be brought back into use. Having made a few trips over the past six years, the deterioration is quite marked between 2012 and today.

    Noranside House was built by my 2nd cousin, 5 generations removed- John Milne born 29 Aug 1742 at Montrose. He was a merchant in Edinburgh and died at Noranside 9 Oct 1821. He was the last surviving great grandson of James Milne 1645-1716, provost & merchant in Montrose. He is listed in "Legacies of Slave Ownership" online as the joint owner of Grand Bay estate in Carriacou, Grenada, West Indies. Kind regards David Milne
