  1. After an early start with work I was looking for somewhere to go for a nap so I headed to the local supermarket to hide in the carpark and get 40 winks. The first thing I noticed as I pulled into tesco was a fence with "DANGEROUS BUILDING DO NOT ENTER" well this was like a red rag to a bull so I was straight in. Above ground was just a shell but around the side I had spotted a bricked up arch a hole big enough to scramble in, inside was a nice selection of tunnels and arches
  2. On the West side of the Yorkshire Pennines sits the village of Diggle, which has a history of sheep farming and weaving. It's idyllic location is very popular with walkers, especially on the canal which runs parallel with the site. ​It was formerly known as the Dobcross Loom Works. This is how it used to look...... A substantial amount of original buildings have already been demolished, which is a shame as they were used for munitions in WW1 , and for making parts for Russian Subs in WW2. Now there's just vast amounts of rubble. The main building is commonly known as The Cathedral, and grade 2 listed. She's a beauty for sure There's trouble at mill though? http://www.oldham-chronicle.co.uk/news-features/8/news-headlines/82937/diggle-confirmed-for-new-school Rumor has it that the rather majestic Cathedral may bite the dust regardless of it's stature. Personally I wouldn't trust Oldham Council's decision making. It's not rocket science to work out how many buildings have been lost under their care. The former Cotton Mills for one. But that's another story Sorry to digress there peeps. Normal service now ensues. At the rear, the Cathedral is connected to the main complex via this rather splendid looking overhead walkway. Parts of the site are still live (probably rented out) and when you start hearing voices close by during your explore, It can make for squeeky bum time. The overhead walkway from the inside looking towards the Cathedral. Sadly locked at that end. Empty sheds! A nice space all the same. Switch Gear Room. Comes complete with crusty flying rat shit. Some nice pipeage. Looks a though someone left in a hurry. Maybe they were heading here.... Mmmmm, the being careless book. The boys room........ ......that doesn't seem to have seen this sign in a while! Talking of signs!! I think It's safe to say, That this one doesn't apply anymore either! The obligatory reflection shot on the way out. Not a bad way to spend a couple of hours. So It's adios from a lonesome rocker. ​Ta for looking

  4. Dobcross works, for 37 years until 2006 it had been the home of Shaw’s Pallet Works, reputedly one of the largest pallet works in Europe. Known locally as ‘The Cathedral’ the main building housing the clock tower, is a Grade 2 listed building. The BLB gained a southern temporary member for the day also visited with Nitestalker.
