  1. The former British Gas building was built in the 1960's and at 147ft is the 21st tallest building in Leeds. Originally to be demolished, this building currently has plans of being converted into a hotel designed by Simpson Haugh and partners. The podium building will also be extended and raised to four storeys along its full length, and work is now progressing on the demolition phase. I was with @plod and another user from 28DL when I explored this in June but I have since come back a few times and built up a series of photos taken from late afternoon through to the night. Pretty cool place this, the views are amazing. It's definitely worth the huge trek up those stairs As I still currently use a bridge camera, not all of my pictures turned out all that good due to photographing in unfavorable conditions for the most part but I wanted to show them anyway.
  2. Having seen a few reports from this place a couple years ago and nothing recently me and a pal went over to check it out, we completely winged the trip here didn't have a clue what was derelict and what wasn't due to part of the site being live! We even got locked in a courtyard at one point! A return visit is definitely on the cards as I didn't mange barely any of the inside Music by: deadmau5 - Avaritia (Dimension bootleg)
  3. UK British gas building Jan-15

    Something a little bit different this time, been here a few times now and the view still takes my breathe away. Its great to have something like this so close to home and as an added bonus the security guard turned up just as we were leaving which saved us a climb The recent fire there hasn't really done much damage to the inside but there is nothing really worth seeing in there hence the lack of photos but please enjoy. Thanks guys !!!!!
  4. British Celanese is a chemical company based at Spondon in Derbyshire. The site was constructed between 1916-1918 by Sir Robert McAlpine with £5million provided by the War Office. Over 30million bricks were used in the construction the original site covered 121 hectares. British Celanese was the first factory in Britain to produce propylene and from it isopropyl alcohol and acetone in 1942. In 1957, British Celanese was taken over by Courtaulds. The plant finally closed on Wednesday 14 November 2012 but a few parts seem to be still live. the electric supply was still on in a lot of the parts we got into so turning the lights on made taking photos quite easy This place is big , theres a on site power station but we did not get in as it looked like it was well belled up.
  5. After sneaking in and reaching the top floor of the Opal Tower to find a locked hatch we headed over the road to the British gas building in leeds, after not having the luxury of a lift unlike the opal tower 14 floor's later we was greeted by a amazing view overlooking the city. The building itself has seen alot better days and is usually home to crackheads and arsonists. Thanks for looking
  6. according to wiki 21'st highest building in Leeds; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tallest_buildings_and_structures_in_Leeds
  7. My very first explore... A disused factory in Manningtree. I've seen this place plenty of times on the train on my way to Ipswich, and always wanted to get in there. It was used mainly for the production of celluloid. Some of the site is still active, but it's pretty easy to tell which parts they are. Some building were subject to an arson attack, and I understand a lot of the interesting stuff was destroyed. So the buildings I entered were mostly just wrecked. Now, pictures, sorry for all the fisheye... New lens, got way too carried away! Thanks for looking.
