  2. The Visit Quite a spare of the moment visit late one night when an old security guard told us the way in surprisingly.. For the scale and size of the building it was a bit of a disappointment as every floor was stripped bare and just rows and rows of columns.. may visit in daylight to see if it looks any different but heres some pics anyway The History Stanley Dock Tobacco Warehouse, (Stanley Dock, Liverpool, England) is a grade II listed building and is the world's largest brick warehouse. Standing 125 foot (38 m) high, the building was at the time of its construction in 1901, claimed to be the world's largest building in terms of area. The 14 storey building spans across 36 acres (150,000 m2) and its construction used 27 million bricks, 30,000 panes of glass and 8,000 tons of steel. The overall design is by A.G. Lyster, the Dock Engineer, but Arthur Berrington almost certainly played a part. The warehouse was a late addition to the Stanley Dock complex and was built on land reclaimed from the dock. Stanley Dock is accessible from the dock system or by barge from the Leeds and Liverpool Canal which enters under Great Howard Street bridge. With the decline of trade going through Liverpool, the warehouse fell into disuse in the 1980s and gradually into disrepair. More recently the building has featured in the Stop the Rot conservation campaign by the Liverpool Echo newspaper. Part of the ground floor of the warehouse is used for the Sunday Heritage Market. Various plans have been unveiled for the Tobacco Warehouse to be redeveloped into several hundred apartments as part of a larger development of the whole Stanley Dock site. The plans involve hollowing out the centre of the warehouse to create a garden-filled courtyard.
  3. With the right equipment and with an UrbExing friend to keep me company (as it'd be both scary and dangerous to solo it), I visited the basement. I was told it was massive, but it was larger than I expected it to be. On with the photos. Saving my personal favourite shot from this trip until last! Thanks for looking
  4. This place is where many Derby UrbExers started out. I had to wait a fair while for the right opportunity to appear and when it did, I took it! Visited with 2 non-forumers. "The (Derby) Friargate Line is a now closed railway line that was part of the Derbyshire and Staffordshire extension of the Great Northern Railway. It linked Nottingham and Grantham to the east of the East Midlands counties to Burton upon Trent to the south west of the area. The route cut a direct line through the midlands industrial city of Derby whereupon an impressive warehouse was constructed, large sidings and the pretty Derby Friargate Station. The line had such an impact on Derby, Friargate and the surrounding areas that it became known as the Derby Friargate Line. It opened as Derby in 1878, was renamed as Derby Friargate in 1881 and was closed to passengers in the September of 1964." Some of the grafitti in abandoned places is amazing, this place is no exception... I saw the basement, but didn't have a torch, tripod or my wide-angle lens with me. I have another report on that which I'll post. Thanks for looking
