Hi everyone.

I went past this place the other day, it's pretty interesting. I used to be a power station for Trams many years ago, then in the 1980's it was changed into a pub, called "City Lights". Then in about 2004ish it was changed into a child's soft indoor play area. It closed in about 2007 and has been left ever since. It's now in a bad way. There have been plans to demolish the building, but it's still intact. Does anyone have any more info on this place? Or has anyone explored it? It seems to be alarmed but I could have sworn I once saw someone in there.

Forgot to add, this place is located in Leeds, at the York road/Selby road junction.

Did you manage to get inside? Last time I was there it was partially burnt down.

Unfortunately not, there was no obvious way in. Have you managed yo get in before? What's it like?

To be honest, I'm not surprised it's partially been on fire! Looking at what used to be Little Chef next door. Is the fire damage that bad?

I highly doubt it's alarmed now. I might try and find a way in, this place in very interesting, I really want to know what it's like on the inside.

I think it's been knocked down hasn't it?

Where did you hear that? It was intact when I last saw it 3 weeks ago.

Ah right. What's it like now? I think most of the fence has fallen down.
