Building started in 1869 & Opened on 1 April 1873, Closed 1995
Finally we managed to make time for a visit to this location. We was hoping for a demolition/security personnel free explore but this was not our day.
We managed to gain entry onto the site but not via our planned entry point, may i just say no damage was caused to get onto the site.
We was on the site for 3 hours avoiding the contractors who was hard at work. This did slow us down and also meant that we could not visit some of the buildings.
Just as we was leaving we can very close to be being spotted, lets just say if it was not for a half size false wall the contractors who was in the same room as me would have spotted me!
None the less good day of exploring was had, really glad we have seen this gem before its all knocked down.
