There was actually an article I read in The Metro (free newspaper on many underground stations) on “place-hacking”
Place hacking is getting into covered up or abandonned areas such as this because why not, think free running but underground as well, wherever it is abandonned and possible to walk.
There was a huge thing where it was claimed that this was breaking the law, people were charged with “intent to cause damage” and no damage was actually found to be done. These people are hounded by the thought police. One person was even taken off a plane by police as they were about to travel because they were found to be a “place hacker”
As far as I can remember there is no law against it and this is why the “intent to cause damage” charge is placed on them, the people are not harming anyone or anything and merely explore abandonned places.
The article was about true freedom in london and how where we are allowed to go is almost a pathway formed. How free are we truly if entering abandonned places is apparently illegal. Maybe just because it can’t be supervised.
Was quite interesting. Just thought I’d mention it because I doubt anyone would be allowed in this place (doesn’t seem abandonned in Leeds because of the builder on the lift thingy)
