HISTORY:

 

Quote

The Stanley Dock Tobacco Warehouse is a grade II listed building and is the world's largest brick warehouse. It is adjacent to the Stanley Dock, in Liverpool, England. Standing 125 feet (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 (15 ha) 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 was used for the Sunday Heritage Market. In 2010 local club promoter Sean Weaver held a warehouse rave on Boxing Day, which saw 2,500 people descend on the building. Acts included DJ Rolando, Kids In Glass Houses lead singer Aled Phillips, Hatchaand Chrispy, as well as a plethora of local DJs from the area.

Getting inside was the easy bit, and it was a bit disappointing, im guessing most of the stuff has been removed already, but I still had to check it off my list.

Thanks for the comment.

Great to see an update on this place as this area a few years ago was a prime exploring site as you had the North Warehouse ,Grain Silo,Accumulator Tower ,Tobacco Warehouse & the Bascule Bridge to do but there was 1or 2 you couldn't gain access  to :5_smiley:.....

 

I take it you couldn't access the Basement area where the walk in safe is?? Pretty cool that was!!!

 

Nice report :)

I was about to climb over some piled up s**t that was blocking the basement when I spotted two blokes in hi-vis with torches, so that called the end of my explore. I may have to get back just to see that.

 

Any other current locations around Liverpool that you could recommend? I've got plans for a few already, but I only know of the 'main attractions'

That must have taken some time for you to post that report :3_grin:

 

Nice effort.

 

Looks huge, 27 million bricks! could make a new housing estate out of that :)

 

Surprised there is security there though.

      This is my first Urbex adventure. I recently moved to West Sussex and though I'd have a look around at some popular and easily accessible sites to explore. I stumbled upon Bedham Chapel and after some quick research, I found the location and travelled there. We drove down a single track road until spotted it in the woodland below us. We parked a few hundred metres further down the road and set out on foot to get there.
       
      This is my video report that I captured and I apologise for the clickbaity title of the video and the fact that it's so weird it looks staged. But it really isn't! My girlfriends reaction to this is real and we were definitely creeped out by our find. If anyone has any idea of what this ceremony was about, please let me know!

      This was a fairly easy explore as these buildings are not as protected as the main college and the park relies on tourists to inform security about any vandals.
      The gymnasium was the hardest to get into as we had to avoid getting seen by any onlookers. So going at a later time of day would be advised.
      You should be cautious if you get further into the student centre as some of the doors looked to be alarmed.
      The classrooms are in the open and not surrounded by anything so you are likely to be spotted by security or tourists.
      We had a run in with security who were quite well mannered and laid back. All they said was that we were not to go near the building as it is a demolition site.
