Wasteland #1

I recently moved to Heaton Moor, on the outskirts of Stockport, and within days found this amazing place. It's called the Peel Moat centre; was once a recreational centre, and part of Stockport college. I started wandering around simply because I found it interesting, but during my three visits I met the police responding to a disturbance call, then some vandals, and then a guy from a demolition company, and I got thinking. So often there are brilliant places like this, too expensive to keep going, too expensive to rejuvenate, and yet too expensive to leave simply leave empty. 

So here begins a new project, and hopefully this time I will stick to it, because Stockport seems chock full of wastelands.
