    Thank you for contributing, but as part of the forum rules please do not use exact dates in your thread titles or anywhere else for that matter. You only incriminate yourself should something happen to the building on the day you're there.

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.
