    Such a beautifully put together church and perfectly captured as always. Been a bit quietly lately for personal reasons but had to log in for that one. Loved it. Bletchley Park was amazing too. Had an unexpected trip back home recently and we nearly dropped by there on the way home but didn't bother because I didn't think anything was left because it hadn't appeared for a while. Nice work mate, proper good pics. Stained glass and grave shots were epic!

    My first post in this forum!! :D HISTORY Ferrari’s Bakery in Hirwaun was a well know brand to most folk in Wales until it went into administration in the early 2000’s. They were renowned for their cakes and pastries. Sadly, the company went in to administration before Christmas of 2006 and with it came over 600 redundancies. EXPLORATION It’s clear that several attempts have been made to access and then later re-secure the site, however, we found an hole in the fence where we were...

    So 2017 went with a fairly slow start, having only done a site I have done to death before (just to get that floor in shot!). Me and two local friends (non-members) headed to the Midlands with a list of sites to do; a very rare occasion that I was navigating as opposed to driving! Said friends were keen as mustard to be exploring and joining me in delving through the history, so all good on that front! The first two sites were total failures, Wyre Forest Glades in Kidderminster was being...

    Hey, thanks for the feedback, I'll bear that in mind! FYI - It would have been used to defend the Thames along with forts on the other side of the river :)

    In 2007 the camp was designated a brownfield site and was to be sold for cost cutting measures by the Ministry of Defence. Natural England declared this a Site of Special Scientific Interest and in 2016 the MOD put the Lodge Hill and Chattenden site up for sale. History of the site dates back to 1875 when several ammunition storage facilities were built. Nearby Upnor Castle has been storing gunpowder since 1667 and from 1875 the site needed to expand. From 1899 the storage facility was...

    Some nice shots there … looks a little reminiscent of a 1950's telephone exchange.

    krela replied to a thread East Tilbury Battery in Military Sites
    Hey stranger. I really enjoyed the video, thank you! One small bit of constructive thought, it might have been useful to have included some kind of map or overhead view to place it in the landscape, so we can see what it was defending and how it relates to Coalhouse fort. Defenses are very much grounded in their geography after all.

    Mansion?? It's an average empty bungalow. The key pad is for accessing a set of keys, usually used by agency nurses and carers making day visits to elderly patients. It doesn't look alarmed, I doubt the keypad is current or active, and it doesn't appear to have anything inside to warrant hoping to gain access. Thanks for posting it, but your description is a little OTT. :)

    Situated just half a mile away from Coalhouse Fort, East Tilbury Battery, was constructed from 1887-93 and supplemented Coalhouse Fort as part of the Thames’ coastal defence system. It housed six long range firing weapons, mounted on disappearing carriages. There was two six-pdr guns on the left and right most sides, and two heavy 10-pdr guns in the middle. The battery was quite innovative in that it used the new method of hoisting rounds up to the guns from underground tunnels, and it was also...

    Today we ventured into some fields by Fenstanton and found what we thought had been demolished! The abandoned drug dealers mansion! Sadly at the moment it is completely sealed but you can gane access by figuring out the key code! We circled the building and it looked quite big. Warning we believe the building is alarmed. militaryFactory 018 by explorer x, on Flickr militaryFactory 017 by explorer x, on Flickr militaryFactory 032 by explorer x, on Flickr Keys to the building are in...

    Today me and one of my crew members Liam went to Fenstanton to explore some abandoned sites. We were only able to access 2 of them. The factory has no history but I was told that it was a Sonar Factory during WW2. I do believe we were the first ever to set foot in the building ever since it was abandoned! Here are the pics i gathered! ;) militaryFactory 060 by explorer x, on Flickr militaryFactory 050 by explorer x, on Flickr militaryFactory 049 by explorer x, on Flickr ...

    "Now, i know you people are interested in PRESERVING "what is left" and taking photos to preserve things for posterity, but this hospital is not closing!!! It is growing!!! Ask yourself why all the new car parks there have been built!!!" Building new car parks has nothing to do with a hospital growing. The vast majority of old NHS building stock was constructed before private car ownership became the norm. Car parks were not provided or were very, very small - one has only to look at St...

    Sadly this place was on the road to ruin when they gutted it and put in that hideous, cheerless modern interior. If a pub serving food alongside booze cannot turn a profit, then no cafeteria/souvenir emporium is going to earn enough to pay the business rates on this very large establishment. In my student days I got a job in my local pub - well one would be daft to turn down free beer and extra money as well, it was a very old public house with a number of small friendly rooms and central bar...

    Great report. There is an Icehouse very near this but I have not been able to find it. Hope you stayed for a while in the car park, very eye opening :p

    It's a neat little place this, some great colours inside. Doesn't look to have changed much since my visit a few years back.
