A view of the hidden parts around the inner sections around the city centre of Manchester UK and beyond. How you perceive these derelict sites could be a sort of morbid fascination, or logically analysing the modes and functionally of the remaining fragments of architecture. This blog is the stage 1 of 'Urban Exploration' but I have to emphasise, if you visit these places and tempted to gain access..I wouldnt advise it unless you seek permission from the appropriate authorities.

  1. Some nice pics.

    Did this as 1 of my very first explorers back in 2008. The site was still very much intact, bar a bit of fire damage that I believe was the reason for closure. Shame my photos are long gone now.
