a place i pass by quite often,
poped in here for a look back in 2016 , long before the fire gutted half the building, tho ive seen it recently on YT it looks a bit different now
once it was uaed as a health spa which is why some of the bits and bobs seem to have been from that period of the buildings use
the place finaly closed in 2007 due to there not being enough couples and attracting mostly single blokes
the management had to draft in hookers from wolverhampton to take care of buisness
this kind of just made it a bit of a nocking shop and wasnt realy legal so it closed down in the end
on with the picks
thanks for looking
Hi all! Another from us, this time an abandoned Nightclub which has huge bank vaults in the 2 separate basements! Enjoy
HISTORY: So the building itself was built around 1940 and was designed for the bank of England. The site itself is built with 2 separate basements with one of them being a gold vault containing, you got it, gold. In 1994 it became the 'The Walkabout' however after this didn't go to plan it was then brought out and became Wahoo (Which the signs are still up on the outside of it). It is due to be converted into student accommodation.
An independent members only club, dedicated to the working man who required a certain place for private meetings and events.
This place has a little bit of everything. Dark, creepy unlit rooms, and rooms where light was still flourishing through the gaps and crevices.
It has had many aliases since the buildings birth in the 1920's and had less than 300 members.
Along the many years the workmens club was usually packed full of people, to the point you couldn't even move.
Slowly but surely however the club started to lose money as members became scarce. It couldn't pay it's own way and since the number of members started dwindling,
the Workmans club had to close its doors to the few remaining loyal members.
Now sits empty and has done for more than 6 years now.
Hopefully the building can see new life in the near future, but for me it was good to get an unusual view of the club.
Cheers for looking!
I know this place has been done many times before but it is right up my alley and was a tantalizing temptation whilst the rest of the family slept/swam in the villa pool.
Thanks for the tip from a fellow member here. The last report/intel from here was 2014 so it has been a while.
Things have changed security wise. The holes are patched up and there are 2 new heras style fences inside the main boundary. The main problem with these was that the point of tackling them was very exposed to the street and adjacent dock.
Inside, not much has changed.
The 'slot window' access point was amusing, the width being about an inch narrower than my back to chest distance and the height being about 4inches shorter than my groin to shoulder height. It took some contorting, and at one point I thought I was well and truly stuck, but in the end, I managed-I was too close to give up.
6am start meant it was a bit dark for photography. By the time I got out, the families were on their balconies and I yelled Ola to them as I jumped over the 4th and final barrier to safety.
It was constructed in 1958 according to a design by the Spanish architect RamÃ³n VÃ¡zquez MolezÃºn.
Running gear and T/G were provided by Metropolitan Vickers.
In 1986 The Spanish government commissioned a new Powerplant around 10km away on the other side of the bay.
The plant was closed in 1991/2.
The 2 rooms I really came for-
