UK Opal 3 Abseil, Leeds - May 2016

Recommended Posts

Went out for a day trip of exploring in Leeds with @plod. We had Opal 3 on our list but once we arrived in Leeds we already noticed there were people on the roof so we were unsure of whether we'd get a chance to get up there. We did some explores in the area to pass the time then eventually made our way to Opal 3. We headed to the roof anyway despite seeing what we first thought were builders, but it turned out there was actually an abseiling event going on so I thought why not. I'm so pleased I had the opportunity to have this experience, and I'd say it was pretty decent timing ;) 

 

Opal 3 is a 25 storey building which serves as student accommodation for 542 students. It is the 3rd tallest building in Leeds after Bridgewater place and the Plaza Tower.

      Due to annoying incidents quite well known. Meanwhile, a lot was looted here and destroyed as much by vandalism.

      It’s been a while for various reasons but I am back and hitting the “move along, nothing to see here” central resource library… no seriously, nothing to see here.
       
      So after a brief chat with who turned out to be a long time reader and follower through instagram, we chose a spot to meet and hit the central resource library.
       
      Now to be honest, I was pre warned over a year ago that this place is absolutely trashed and I can confirm exactly that but it’s one I can now tick off the list.
       
      There’s not much to see, unless smashed windows and terrible graffiti is your thing so there is a lack of photos and hardly warranting a report, but here we go anyway!
       
      History wise? It’s a library… it closed and moved to a new location, that’s pretty much all I can say!

      Only a few quick shots, taken without a tripod.
      I don't know when the chapel (called "Capel Zinc") was built, it was a subsidiary tabernacle for the now Holy Trinity Church in Corris.
      Chairs has been removed and apparently the property is now used by a flower grower.

      Thankful there was enough remaining to grab some shots and at the same time have a good giggle
      Splored With Lara,Trog and peaches






      In the back area of the stage Lara found some costumes and the silliness began.
      Beds began to roll up and down the corridors .
       

       
      Better not to ask

      I nearly ran straight into secca.
      At first i thought it was another fool dressed up but as Sindbad
      Then realized he was a Sihk Secca lol

      This fella was either as deaf as a post or turned a blind eye & I wasnt fussed with either.
      As was more to see and we put a bit of distance between us and the now named Turbanator.








      Cheers for looking in
