ROF F, Apr2013 - Pic Heavt and contains street Art

Recommended Posts

For those who don't like street art look away now.

Not much info to be found on tinterwebs during my 5 seconds of reserching.

The site is pretty sizeable and bigger still before bits were demo'd and a big

prison built right next door (think the land it's on also used to be part of the

factory - but not 100% on that)

Nice relaxed mooch - stripped to just bare buildings now but still a nice mooch, several shelters

throughout the site and lots and lots of street art.


























As we were almost done I saw a figure coming on site in a white shirt .. fellow explorer ?

No two G4S seccas from the prison next door. . They'd noted my car had been parked on

the road for 4 hours and just wanted to check all was OK. On explaining what we were

doing there they told us to carry on and bade us farewell - jolly nice chaps they were too.

Visited with the man that some call ....... Zero81

I used to feel like that ... but when it's on buildings that are middle of nowhere and/or are not going to be re used ...

I have done a u turn on graf from hating it without exception when I started UE four years ago to now loving any that has any artistic intent - still can't be doing with just scribbles, tagging n poor graf mind

I really like that, the street art is really nice too! Adds a bit to the place I think, better than tags in my opinion.

Super set of pics and a great share :thumb

      This former school swimming pool was built in 1904 and abandoned in 1997. I happened upon it randomly and had a hunch that there might be a swimming pool inside but didn't expect much given the state of the exterior. Well, it turned out to be pretty decent inside. Clearly nobody has been inside here for a very long time. The pigeons have set up shop and went absolutely bonkers when they saw me. They've really done a number on the place, or should I say a number two? It's pretty minging to be honest but at least there's no shitty graffiti or vandalism. This was a night visit so I had to light paint all my shots. I didn't do too badly considering but it would be cool to see it in daylight. Hopefully someone else will have a look soon.







      This long curtain covered spectator seating for some reason

      The floor up here was well dodgy, you can just about see some holes on the left of shot









      Cheers for looking

      A very old farm house early 1800's id say..it was or sale what i found in here was unlike anything id every found before

      A  large roomy house

      thats an old piano..


      This was the 1stof a few finds..the painting was bolted to the wall...seemed hard to remove without destroying it

      this might have something to do with this next room

      the words die die die die...carved into a bedroom door with a padlock on it

      the walls inside the room had scratches all over them...

      translate anyone

      caught 2 clear voices in this room

      A room with carpet on the door

      the mist in on the left...what could that be..

      the house was for sale cheap but noone wanted to buy it...it was eventually torn down...

      I caught two clear voices in the bathroom ...you can hear the word paris(which is my name)..and boo..i heard footsteps while i was there but nothing on film...i reget not taking that painting..hope it was save befor it bwas torn down...

      A post-apocalyptic look into Granada Studios old coronation street set!
      I felt I had to do this one considering I am a Mancunian and all, but sometimes these expeditions don't always go to plan.

      The old Coronation Street Film set is currently sat, abandoned , waiting demolition. This video shows an explore of the purpose built film set at Granada Studios in Manchester. Although this wasn't the very first film set at the studio it's one of the most well known and remembered amongst fans of the popular soap. The TV show's production was filmed at this location for over 30 years until it was sold to Manchester Quays Its in 2013 to be demolished and replaced with flats, offices, restaurants and hotels.
