Here is the missing part of video "DERELICT LIFT HUNT WITH AN 'OO', PART TWOOO" where I find an old all-mechanical telephone exchange.

ABANDONED BUILDING STORY
There were other people in here, some were teenagers, some were taking the remains of whatever electrical cable they could find. The guys taking the wiring were not pleasant, but with all these environments you just hope that people are there to 'do their thing' and leave.
The fact is, even I do not enjoy places like this. I've seen stories where other explorers have gone on a rampage smashing windows and starting fires, then they leg it when the police arrive leaving people that were only taking pictures to take the blame.
Other stories tell of people that have been trapped inside a building when the entrance point was closed or sealed by others on purpose when they left, because they thought it was clever... Yes, explorers trapping other explorers in a building.
There was an old hotel where they knocked out the ground and first floors to try and stop people getting in the tower block. People still entered, but one guy FELL TO HIS DEATH trying to get out afterwards by using a rope which presumably came detached. This wasn't that long ago.
Some of the external walkways featured in this building I would never walk on, injury or even death is a real risk here and you really have to watch what you're walking towards. I've seen lots of instances where the floor would have given way if stepped on, due to years of decay.
There is a car park in Bracknell with a trap-door in the motor room that's covered by about 2cm of pigeon poo, invisible, unless you noticed it when climbing up a separate ladder (which was not attached at the top!). No doubt about it, a fall of about 10 metres onto concrete - you're dead.
With all this in mind, don't copy - STAY OUT OF ABANDONED BUILDINGS. When things go wrong, they can go very wrong.
I'm trying to clear some room on my HDD to make way for some really epic videos! Just finishing off a couple of videos like this one.
