    Default Leeds - holbeck flats


    Seen pricejs has already been here and this is my first report so apologies if normal etiquette would be to add to that thread, but didn't want to rudley hijack pricejs' top report.

    I've been down a couple of times in the last month, first time mostly outside and secondly had a bit more of an adventure around. all the flats are at different stages of ripout and certainly none had as much stuff in as when pricejs was there. Evidently they'd been expecting a lot of 'visitors' as even in the top floors there were signs on doors saying boilers and piping had all been removed. There were still some interesting finds including a circa 1987 copy of Men Only ;-)

    Managed to get on the top floor, could have got on roof but thought i'd probably pushed my luck enough so stopped short. A few pics from the 2 visits below.

    No, you're okay doing that, urbex1. We only ask people to put all their reports on one thread if they all went together on the same day/explore.
    Very nice pics. Welcome to DP. :)

    Great photos Urbex, looks like you had a better day weather wise than me. Nice to see you got upstairs, I was too scared of being shanked. I go past these flats regularly, and it they seem to be taking longer than expected to come down. Thanks for these.
