I saw them too! Wanted to revisit Trinity Church, but Seddons have locked it up again. Last time I was in, I really needed a wide angle lens, and sure enough now I have one, the place is bolted tight! Rats...

Hi Viz pikeys with risk assessments though?!!...

It wasn't me, most of the building is long gone. I don't use the hi viz gear, I just stride up and look like I'm supposed to be there. It works rather well! I drove my van right into Whittingham Asylum that way! It took over an hour before the security muppet rumbled me.

Well, er yeah since you ask. Well, drove in through the first gate, told the guard at the barrier I was here for a meeting. Drove to the turnaround at the front of what used to be the main entrance, then locked the van and went walking around the boundary fence until I spotted a viable way in. Easy. I was there for a couple of hours before I got challenged. Whereupon I confessed to being a photographer. We walked back to my van, shook hands and I left. Being nice gets you further than sneaking about every time. Think on. Oh, and it wasn't me at the college, so no pics!

I got stopped at the gate, so I said I was a plumber and was here to visit the site. All true. I think they call this 'hiding in plain view'!
