Interesting place, and a good report too – I've come across junkie paraphenalia before (foil and needles), but more worrying is when you find clothes, bedding, food … you have to hope there isn't a mad tramp round the next corner! At least your reactions didn't make you freeze …

In the background of that needle shot is a table littered with food (including fresh bread), beer cans and other rubbish. I got a photo of it but my accomplice is in shot. Apparently said accomplice at the time saw two sleeping bags and a large suitcase in a darkened room, but to be honest at that point I was more interested in getting the f*ck out of there!

Being the second man who went in with mike it was a bad experience at the end, the wall across from where we were was reflective and i was more or less staring at the guy, def won't be going back to that place ever again!

That was fab, the amount of times I have driven past and longed to see what it looks like inside. I always thought it would just be abandoned and left as it was.
Where you able to get into the clubs next door ?

We got into almost eveywhere, but Bliss and Joannas are seperated off from the rest of the buildings... So we couldn't do them.

i was a doorman for 12 yr and love seeing old clubs closed down in a strange way it reminds of that eary

feeling you get in a big club when youve kicked everybody out at the end of the night :)
