A stunning grade two listed gem decaying right on the high street. Featuring the stunning architecture of Alfred Waterhouse who also designed Strangeways prison the Manchester town hall. The main building has been used for many different purposes over the years as well as Prudential themselves. And the basement club was once a Berni inns restaurant (Cafe Monico) a chain that served a post-war British public such delight's as sherry schooners steak and chips and black forest gateau as well as becoming a dance club in the 90's. We had a wonderful two hours in this grade two listed time capsule. Hope you guys enjoy the pics as much as we enjoyed the explore. Thanks for any feedback The Urban Collective We Film It...
Hey Everyone, I just wanted to share my latest exploration with you all. I took a trip to the Abandoned Los Angeles Zoo which closed up business in 1966. Be sure to take a look at the video and do a little research on the location as well. The history behind this place will shock you. All The Best, Anthony
Whilst on holiday with the wife & kids last week I managed to slip away for a couple of hours to check out this old abandoned zoo. Opened in 1937 and closed in 1985 and at one time housed 3500 animals. The place is massively overgrown and a lot of the old wooden buildings have collapsed onto themselves. The animal cages still survive within the undergrowth and the large greenhouse is relatively intact although pretty much full of bushes and brambles other than a very small part at one end. I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t see anybody else whilst I was there but there are signs that it is somewhat looked after as there were fresh tyre tracks visible on the ground and there was obvious signs of repair to the various holes that have been made in the fences over time. An unusual explore it was the first abandoned zoo for me and although not a massive amount to see it was worth a look.
