    Default Manchester Cathedral Steps

    Visited with Userscott. If you can say one thing about this former air-raid shelter, landing stage and public bogs, it's that it's rather hard to get in.

    The most interesting features are perhaps the remnants of the WW2 shelter. Posters on the walls, painted signs and a substation room. Throw in lots of steps, corridors, little rooms and offices tucked away, and then the huge gents toilets, and you've got a real treat.

    Getting out was just as tricky as getting in, and by the time we emerged we were covered in grime and muck, but it had been worth it. Unfortunately the search blaster failed pretty early on, so we had to use the head-torches and remote flash for most of the photos, but they came out ok.

    Big thanks to Scott for leading this one, and of course to him and stepping_lightly for cracking it in the first place.

    What does it look like from the outside?
    The new Amsterdam at Liverpool?

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    That's better. All falls into place now. A cathedral? The size of a normal church!

    Interesting pictures. don't you feel a bit spooked when you are walking around these places ? 'spose you'll be used to it. It does look a bit scary.
