Hey there everyone :)

Firstly heres a little music for while reading!:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2udQUelkjSA

I guess i should start off with a little about myself?

I have recently moved Closer to the Manchester area from Royston Vasey (yes its a fictional place but Glossop,Hadfield, and that general area do seem to fit the bill!) granted i have only moved into Stalybridge but have so far found out a few wonderful little local places such as the power substation , and what i think is called "Millbrook Sidings"? (the one with the little viaduct thingamajig) I have only very recently gotten into Photography and Urban exploration although am avid seeking to get more and more into it.

So far a few of the places i HAVE visited (all be it some not properly) are:
Hawks Head mill (Glossop)- was a very dreary day and had fencing everywhere so didnt want to go fence hopping BUT learnt a fair bit about the camera i was using which is always good!

Heyrod PowerSubstation/Millbrook sidings (Heyrod) - Been a couple of times , again more learning things about how to do photography and testing stuff out alongside its a really nice area to wander!

The kit i usually use when heading out for a wander is:
Pentax - X5 Bridge camera.
Cheapo tripod.
then whatever i can be bothered chucking in my bag such as snacks etc haha

Have just been bought an amazing DSLR by the missus which is a Nikon D3200 with double lense kit (think its the 18-55mm and the 55-200mm?) still learning a lot on it but not managed to go out for a proper day with it yet as kind of scared to damage it (guess i can always take nice pictures of cats on the garden fence or some clouds , or abuse the zoom lense to stare into the neighbours bedroom.)

Apart from Urban exploration and Photography im a pretty odd character always laughing and joking (yes even when someones just broken both their legs) im your pretty typical alternative style guy in his twenties , plenty of piercings , crazy hair styles all that malarky! very easy going and easy to speak to , i do act an absolute muppet most of the time but can PRETEND to be mature when needs be.

have had a little wander around the forums a few times before (how i found out about the heyrod places!) hopefully post some of my own images up soon (both unedited/HDR evilness...) so i hope some of you look forward to screaming at me for terrible camera exposure, lighting and all that.

Anyway sorry its gone on a bit of a rant i thought id try and put more effort into a introductory post incase there are any fellow Mancunians who fancy a chat some time or a joint wander to some lovely abandoned/derelict goodness!

Looking forward to seeing your finds! :)

Thanks flyBoys90 :) tempted to post another one regarding the other building on the millbrook side with the small viaduct but not sure if it would be too much making another report for it?

People often post 4 or 5 reports in one go, it's all good. :)

ahh cool i wasnt sure as they literally are like 5 mins walk or less apart and the second place isnt all to much there really as its so accessible that its just graffiitii central and no way onto upper floors unless got some rope rigging and a death wish :p
