    Default Waterwheel Inn, Bieldside, Aberdeen (Pic Heavy)

    The Waterwheel Inn has been on the go for ever and used to house Roo's Leap restaurant.
    Apparently when it closed all the furniture, beds, TVs, etc were all left in place.
    About 18 months ago it was broken into and all the copper pipes were stolen, no water damage though.
    Usual vandalism throughout, and signs that someone has actually been squatting there recently.
    This explore has a weird feel to it, as you expected to see someone everytime you went into a room.
    A lot of pictures I know, but I got excited !!





























































    If you want the full set of photos ! They are at http://s199.photobucket.com/user/dee...20inn%20170513

    It was sold as a going concern, but the new owners decided not to re-open and to try & get planning permission for houses on the site.

    Now then, I remember this place when it was open. Still destined to become houses, afaik.

    I like the close up of the man with the blurred face holding the oats.

    This looks awesome! I've seen plenty of photos of it, looks like I should explore as its only a few miles away.
