    Default Holton Lee Estate, Wareham, Dorset


    Me and a buddy visited this site at the beginning of the year. The estate is split into two areas, one side is completely occupied and the other side was totally derelict. We visited the sight on 3 separate occasions as it was so large. The last time we decided to being down some props and lighting equipment to take some cool images.

    As far as i am aware the site was originally owned by the military to produce cordite, There are ruminants of this around the site but mainly dominated by newer businesses. I did see a document left in one of the buildings dated 1994 but Iím not too sure about the rest. This is the biggest site Iíve been to so far (hence three visits) and well worth a look for any urbex enthusiast

    Looks like a good place for a leisurely wander. I like your prop pics...and especially like the boat and the last one of the double doors. Nice one.

    Props? Lights? Artistic photography? But they've got their clothes on!

    Beautiful shot mate. Nice work.
    When she smiles it looks like an exploding pig... Erotic.

    This land was originally part of the Lees estate, purchased by the Lees family in 1889. It was used by them as a steeplechase course until purchased to be used as the Naval Cordite Factory. Holton Heath railway station was opened in about 1914 to serve this site, and is therefore the newest railway station on this section of line.
