OK, first post, be nice. This place has been on my radar for a while now. Was bored one Thursday evening, so Mrs NNN told me to bugger off with the camera. Went out and as night fell, thought that I'd have a look at location access. Yep, was easily doable. Went back the next evening, got in, and that was as far I would go by myself. My usual buddy couldn't make it the next week, so a local explorer on another forum joined me. We got in again and then discovered someone else had been in, as a ladder was in situ making life much, much easier. A little, bit of History; Accrington Conservative Club was one the largest ConClub in the UK. On its top floor was an impressive sprung ballroom, again one of the largest in the UK. Its impressive facade belies the rather insignificant location. In later years, it was known as Churchills Nightclub, which closed down in 2004 following the death of a customer. Since then it has been left to rot, a number of arson attacks over the years have taken its toll on the interior. The current owner has plans to demolish the building, keeping the frontage and developing the site into apartments, restaurants and a gym.
