    Default Zoology University Building - Sep 18


    Really enjoyed this one - a total surprise finding out it was relatively close to me.



    Zoology University Building




    I remember seeing the pictures of the interior of the site, and I spent a good few hours working out it's location from the building's you could make out out of the windows. Apparently some other explorers were doing the same, as I was invited to come along with the next day to check it out.



    The exterior, almost indistinguishable as being derelict










    Immediately inside, we found a room filled with animal bones, relating to this disused building's nature as a zoology section of the university







    Labs and classrooms























    The two, beautiful lecture theatres



























    Other bits and the roof























    From what I'm aware, the building has been stripped of all items, so it appears that some work is going into it, rather than it sitting as a secret as normal university life goes on around it.



    Sorry for the lack of text, I sprained my hand last week playing football and it's recovering slowwwwly.



    Here's the documentary styled video from the site. I cover the past, present and future through cinematics and narration:







    Thanks for reading :)

    Very nice pictures, the decay on the furniture and walls aren't that bad as I was expecting it to be.

    that's well tidy. Nice one :)
    Zero reports, zero participation and then a PM asking for info tends to offend - I delete such PM's so don't waste your time.

    Gorgeous building that - like so many of that era.

    That place would make me panic. I'd be too scared to open a door in case it was still a live site.
    Looks like a really interesting place though. The design would have heaps of hidden rooms and damp dark cellars. I'll bet there's some interesting relics buried away in the quieter areas.

    Thanks for sharing.
    Full of meaty goodness.
