  1. Awesome! That was a fun trip, forgot about this!
  2. My pictures don't work any more thou so you might as well delete this report.
  3. Blimy, that is impressive. All that glassware just there, untouched. Awesome!
  4. I remember walking round this when it was open to the public! I expect there's a lot of other interesting stuff tucked away in the old studio complex, it's a big old place. I believe there also used to be an access to the Manchester and Salford junction underground canal (later turned into air raid shelters, now abandoned) which runs under the complex.
  5. Nice pics there Damo. I've literally this evening finally downloaded my memory cards from this trip, I might even put a report together once I've figured out where to host my photos now I don't have photobucket any more
  6. I have to say it was discussed that weekend was a quality weekend this, just bought some good memories flooding back.
  7. You have to remember the museum next door is primarily concerned with the place as it was used in WWII for the code breaking, that's what it focusses on. Most of the equipment that's left in these buildings has no relation to that activity and is much much newer. It's still interesting, but I can understand why it's left there.
  8. Lovely set of photos there, it's deinitely one of the better ones to go see this. Both times I've been here I've never got to the far end, that corridor is just so long!
  9. I cannot believe the power is still on in there! Crazy! As cinemas go it's pretty modern, but if you poke about there's a few older bits and pieces worth a gander in the building. Nice report.
  10. Hi there, Welcome to OS. Feel free to post up some of your old stuff if you'd like, it's always interesting to see. Any questions, please ask away. Maniac.
  11. How did I miss this. Yes it's still here @Shadow although looking very different these days. You going to get out and about again then? It's been a while! A lot has happened in the intervening years. Give us a call sometime, my number's still the same!
  12. This forum does auto size, however it does it to a width of 1024 pixels which means your portrait shots appear very wide and long. It's better to re-size before you upload to long edge 1024 pixels which keeps everything in proportion. Depending what camera you have there may be other options available for len's. I'm amazed the power is still on, it was a damp soggy mess 6 years ago, it must be even worse now!
  13. I know exactly which one this is. Pretty cool that you can get in again, although it looks to have decayed a lot more since my visit. I'm guessing the power isn't on any longer? Could do with resizing the photos and I'm also not sure what Lens you're shooting with, but it's a bit zoomed in and you miss the scale of the place a bit. But fair play for getting in here.
