    Default Old Manchester House 0515


    I have passed this building so many times and finally decided to go for a closer look! It has been derelict for years and looks like it was stunning in it's heyday!
    I know nothing about its' history so this is pretty much a derp that I was driven to fulfil!
    It's seriously dodgy and trashed inside, nature won this battle along with all the leaks that caused entire rooms to cave in.
    There was a lot of old computer parts lying around, old TV sets and signs that someone had lived there for a while. But it's empty - for now!

    Top floor:


    Heating:


    All the staircases were like this:


    Tasteless decor, but a great fireplace:


    A heavy lunch:


    The Hilton suite! Among the plastic bottles was something resembling a crack pipe:


    More stairs:


    Flakey fireplace:


    Ceiling supports! I spent as little time in this room as possible:


    Fireplace in the dodgy supported room:


    Old monitor:




    External:

    Yes we do, asking is against the forum rules.

    That shelf is brilliant. Unusual to keep the garden on the top floor too :p
    Was also surprised to see the external looking as grand as that!
    Excellent report, thanks for sharing :)

    Loving that one. Trashed on the inside but retaining some of it's majesty on the outside...
