Default ARCHIVE - Salford Quays, Docks - June 08 - 22-06-2008, 22:07

My first NWE report!

The Docks at Salford quays are quite easily accessed. On the day there was no security/cameras, it look abandoned almost (that's how we like it:thumb:!). This was supposed to be a quick recce for a later visit, as it turned out I ended up exploring the first ships deck and engine room (luckily I decided last minute to take my torch). Due to lack of tripod all indoor photos were taken with flash. I explored only one of the 3 ships, due to time restraints and the feeling I was 'pushing my luck' slightly. As I was about to try the door for the crew quarters, where standing is a little exposed, a few cars drove past and everyone started pointing so thought it wise to scarper before anyone turned up.

Layout detailed here

(In Red is the ship I explored, the Sandsend. In Blue is Gina and yellow another I didn't catch the name of, both so far unexplored)

Sandsend looking toward the 'Media City' development, where the BBC will be moving to

Sandsend again

I found myself asking "hmm, do I really want to go down there . Sod it, of course I do!"

The wind was blowing really hard and expected that door to slam shut any second.
