  1. Visited with a mate one night last week, bit of a rushed visit. Photos not great as my main touch ran out as soon as got there and left the spare batteries at home, so using my back up light and most photos took one handed so little blurry but wanted to share anyway. Will prob do a revisit as 2 mins from my flat. Couldn't find much info on it but this is little bit I did find - Public house. Dated on rainwater head, 1904. Brick with stone dressings, rendering and half timbering, combined for maximum picturesque effect. Plain tile roof. Hearty blend of late medieval and Baroque features in a typically exhuberant Edwardian fashion. Three storeys and attics with two-storey wing to Deanery Way. Corner entrance and four-bay elevation, two-window return. Semicircular entrance porch surmounted by tower. Full-height pilasters marking the angles of the two elevations. Half-timbered tower above the entrance with bands of mullioned and transomed windows in two storeys, and rendered upper storey with oculus in cartouche; projecting domed cap. Elevation to main road comprises three gables, that to the right having decorative framing and overshadowing the pair to the left. Paired segmental-arched windows to ground floor with heavy voussoirs divided by corbel carrying upper oriel window. Other windows on first and second floors are mullioned lights with small pane sashes of original design. Jettied upper storeys are timbered with close studding and quatrefoil panelling in apex of gable. Stone dressings to windows in brick storeys, timber mullions above. Return to Deanery Way comprises two gables divided by a chimney breast. Each gable has segmental-arched window with stone voussoirs in brick lower storey, and mullioned sash windows in rendered upper storeys. Half-timbered jettied attic gables with mullioned windows in upper storeys. Stone pilaster at one side supports jettying of left hand gable. Lower wing beyond has high central entrance with segmental pediment, and flanking sash windows. Similar very tall sash windows with brick dressings in rendered upper storey. Decorative railings and rainwater furniture.
  2. This is an overflow for the stockport trunk sewer The lid is in the middle of a public foot path but it shifted really easy so once I was in I put it down behind me as best I could There are two large chambers, one for the outfall and on for the processor that are connected by a length of RCP On with the pics Bit blurry as this one was taken on my phone Time to go home
  3. I've not been underground for 5 days and was starting to get the shakes, my eyes had adapted to being above ground and my skin was no longer translucent so I had to find somewhere dark and cool to hide from the midday sun As I was in Stockport I decided on Brinksway deep level shelter Wardens post Toilets
  4. A Nice example of an Edwardian Swimming Baths constructed in 1907-8 - Still keeping mostly original features the baths have been closed since 2005 and are a listed building. Visited solo ..
  5. I had intended on going down a couple of drains but the torrential rain had put an end to my plans and left me in Stockport with nothing to do. I've never been happy with my pics from here and I'm still not happy with the pics from the old entrance. There is now a sleeping bag and blankets near the entrance so I suspect there could be someone sleeping in here.
  6. A very brief visit here with JFR and Scattergun. Not much too see, was very trashed and only took a couple pics. The hospital was originally built in 1880 and called Dialstone Lane Infectious Diseases Hospital. There is newer ward block on the site which is still in use, but undeterred we ventured in. The Skeleton Key Security have been doing a awful job, SK, have a word n sort it out Couple ward shots, as it was the only really interesting bits of me. Thanks for looking at the derpy derp
