    I was responding to brickworx post really. I should have quoted it to make that clear, sorry.

    It was also intended as a question to future visitors.

    Its not 'lived in' or anyone's 'home' to my knowledge. Part used yes, residential? Not so sure about that ....My post was based on my visit to the (clearly derelict) chapel through which I gained access to the main building (of which there are two and if looks as if SlimJim saw the other one to the one I did). I explored the derelict areas ONLY (as you can see from my pics) until rumbled by Secca, was asked to leave and did so... It's honestly news to me that it's at all lived in and I saw no sign of any kids or regular usage thoughout my explore.

    My ethics are tight when it comes to exploring and wouldn't dream of knowingly poking around in someone's home and would advise others not to visit here if that is the case as yes, it's clearly rude if not downright unethical in this hobby of ours!! :)

    I Thought krelas reply could be misunderstood, believe me if he believed your intrusion was deliberate he would have contacted you by PM.
    I expect many of us have found folk living in property we thought was empty, I always apologized, explained what I was doing there and got out quick.

    Yes exactly this, I was asking a question more than anything.

    I'm not entirely sure if this location is someone's home (squat or otherwise) but it seems that way from this and previous posts over the past couple of years. So for me personally it's best avoided, and from a forum point of view is probably best not posted (at least with any reference to inhabitants), as it's not a great act to be publicising to the outside world.

    It can be so difficult to tell what's what and mistakes are easy to make, as smiler said. Occupational hazard!

    Yeah, I'd treat it as confirmed occupied for now and I won't be returning or posting any more material concerning the site on the forum. I prefer to be a neutral entity and not have any effect on squatters, legal inhabitants, other explorers, photographers, etc. To be honest I'm sure the powers that be are aware of any presence there anyway ;)

    Like Slimjim we paid a visit here earlier this month completely unaware there were people 'living' or using the building for whatever purpose. Some parts such as the chapel are clearly derelict and with no signs of life we went in. Interestingly we later noticed a number of cars looking like they were 'hidden' away at the rear of the building. Upon hearing voices inside we were seen within seconds, made our apologies and left the way we had entered. I'd taken only 4 photos!
    What use the building is being put to these days I have no idea but we all know some of it's history.
    If I had to choose one word about the place it would be odd - very odd!
    You ain't seen me, right?

    The cars are odd, because they look quite clean and new. On close inspection it's obvious that they're write-offs and are being stored for some unknown reason. Why anyone would stick them all up there, I have no idea. The flat bed transit freaked us out too, because the first thing I thought when we saw it was pikies! Agreed though, the atmosphere is unusual in there!

About us
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.
