Urban Exploration


In Manchester

Co-Op HQ

It was time to stay closer to home. Meeting up with Gone we initially visited the new Co-Op HQ building close to Victoria station. Access was gained fairly straightforward and were right up on the roof. It was blowing a gale alright, tripod was on a wobble trip so we soon headed back inside to see the cathedral / museum / site of significant UE interest scaffolding…

Scaffolding, Beauty.

With the wind blowing hard, we had to stop for a moment. See those black sheets on the ground in the above image, those were falling from the roof which made for an interesting observation, time to look a little closer…


We then headed back into town, meeting up with Tweek and Fishbrain, it was time for a new target.

Central Library and Town Hall Extension, Mancunia.


The Dome was incredibly impressive, prominent and lit through the surrounding windows. This was first visited by Gone back in September, it was time to head inside, go under and above stuff and see what the crack is…

Go In Dome

Then the entrance hall…

Tunnel of extension, grimey…

Going Deep

We hung around in the Town Hall Extension for a short while, got up in the roof-space and headed out onto the outer scaffolding to make admirational photographic images of the main town hall clocktower…

Brap, etc.
