I don't mean to offend, but 5 minutes on the web and a 10 minute wander around and I have two ways in. Why bother?

Your pics are bloody good though. I need to buy some decent lighting!
Are you for real!

Thank Buddah and Ojay. I am for real, but I'm more into photography than urbex per-Se. I hadn't considered security people monitoring the site. Most places are far easier to access than some people make out, so you get all this tripe posted about 'lateral thinking' and 'mists lifting'! Most of the places I shoot are already out there in urbex postings, so not much point wasting time posting what is already up. Tomorrow's trip however isn't! I'm doing a large, empty underground reservoir.

Im sorry Kenni, but I can't say. The way the access came about, would mean breaking someone's trust if I divulged any details. Suffice to say, there are at least 17 of them in the Bolton area and if you follow the Rossendale Valley, lots more. In any event, I'm only in it for the architecture!
Oh, and this posh part of Bolton of which you speak?! Where is it??!

It has indeed, I spilled the beans and everyone visited, sadly some people have short memories when it comes to sharing entry routes into places.
