This is somewhere that has been done to death so I won't bore you all with the history!

A complete dump really but seriously one of the most photogenic places I have been to. I quite enjoyed it here, visited the day before and stood watching as 3 teenagers were throwing slates from the roof in to the pool below. Decided to go back the next day. Went back, empty!

Had a nice walk around, stood for a minute thinking how beautiful it would have looked in its heydey with tons of swimmers in the pool ad watching from the balconies. A bit dodgy in areas, walked halfway along the right hand side balcony and realised it was sloping towards the main pool. That was nearly a brown trouser moment :eek: slowly made my way back to safety.

As we were leaving there were 2 girls at the other end of the pool taking pics, they must have been no older than 14, was quite nice. They reminded me of me when I was younger, I imagined they had probably told their mum they were round their mates when really they were in the local derelict playground! They are hopefully the next generation of us.

Anyway on with the pics!

Yes I noticed that lastnight :) I loved it here, it is really only a half hour job but I just enjoyed walking round looking at everything, testing out the unsafe areas as you do :rolleyes:

Definitely seen the nozzles of a few spray cans but the architecture speaks for itself, nice photos and enjoyed the write up too (y)
