La Bateau, Duke St, Liverpool

Recommended Posts

La Bateau has been closed for a few months, coming on a year, the front looks like shit and they have recently put scaffolding up in order to begin refurbishment of the entire pub/venue. The scaffolding will make it so easy to gain entry as there is open windows on the second and third floors of the building so it would just be a case of gaining access without passersby noticing, maybe get in at dawn and start shooting? If anyone else has any info/previous entries/wants to come with I'd love to get my first explore under my belt!!!

La Bateau, Duke St, Liverpool, U.K.

Sounds like you've got it figured out already, there's a Liverpool explorer called Wherever I May Roam on here who may be up for it with you? Send him a PM and see what he says, pretty sure he's up for all things Scouse! :thumb

Yeah I was walking past Le Bateau and the door was open with builders inside so I have given up on that place, I also had my eye on the Joseph Heaps Rice Mill near the waterfront and after 20 - 30 minutes of scouring the outside of the building I found no easy entry. Again willing participants needed to help with this as I'd like to get in before they finally tear the place down. I was in the grounds early on this morning (23/07/2014) and this is one of a few pictures I took whilst there.


I haven't quite worked how to do the image embed on here so you will have to follow the link to my Flickr sorry.

      Built in 1871 but had been refurbished at some point.
       Now, I don't do heights.. So I was chuffed to see my mate practically run towards it in excitement and go first. It was pretty high and the grated floor was not ideal if you wanted to avoid looking down. 
      The tower probably stands around 40-50 ft but exact measurements are unknown at this point.
      Apart from the odd clanging of metal under our footsteps and how wobbly it was, it was a good first climb like this for me!
      Got some snaps as usual, enjoy!

      Hello, I just joined this forum because my friends and I are traveling out to Choke Canyon SP later this summer and I would like some cool/abandoned places to explore and didn't know where to look, so I came here! Hopefully you all have some good places to share.

      Hi all I'm back again!
      Today we went and visited an old boarding school in Chichester. We did not know if the place was abandoned but we got a tip to say it "might" be abandoned. Well...we went to check out this place and my god it has got to be one of the better ones I've been to. No graffiti onsite but just an awesome explore all in all!
      The site itself originally started life as a boarding school and has a full range of classrooms, studios and offices. They had an onsite IT room which could fit up to 20 students at a time and also 2 large greenhouses for training in horticultural skills. The centre itself was very highly-regarded in the area and was built within the grounds of a grade II listed house. It went on to become a residential educational and training centre until the site officially closed its doors in 2011.
