    No, it's not a museum! It's the real deal!

    Cold War? Is it a museum? I'm surprised there's no rust on anything. The large engines are also on separate mounting pads to isolate vibration. It's a fascinating place.

    Lovely building that. Mind you, that car parking is just shocking! The handle thingy is a pump - you see them at the base of access shafts into ROC posts and fixed to the wall. I've no idea why it's attached to bracketry and tin plate. Dirus will come along and tell us the name of those pumps (My mind fails me!).

    To be fair it got sealed up pretty quick, it was only open for a just over a week after it appeared online. I was lucky enough to get a look at it before it got secured. It was amazing,I have never seen so much old stuff left in one place. Tops the Hoarders place or even Barnsley's in my opinion. It seems there are few things I saw whilst there that are missing from your pics and looking at the exif data you were there only a few hours after me. I'm glad it's been sealed up otherwise...

    There were a load of clocks lined along top of mirror that have already "gone" I think they have been taken by the museum though.

    That's one hell of a find, glad it's all being rehomed.

    This design of chapel is almost identical to one that I had a lease to a few years back. There would have been outdoor toilets on the back corners of the central tower, this is what the signs probably refer to. The chapels themselves would indeed have been split between Anglican and Non-con.

    Interesting. Were there also toilets in this building? The reason I ask is that I can't think of any example of chapels being segregated by sex. Normally cemeteries would have two chapels, one being Anglican and the other Non-conformist.

    Nice. There's at least three clocks there that could do with a restore but gladly they are going to a clock museum. Thanks for posting.

    A nice little explore that. Remember getting chased out by secca so we had to go back and get straight on the roof. Nice shots. Wish I'd got more of the dials and stuff.

    Time really stood still in this place in more ways than one! I have little history on this delightful place, Obviously the original owner was a watch / clock maker who I believe died some time ago. It is rumoured that his daughter then lived in the property into old age, but why the house was never "cleared out" remains a mystery to me! This place has suddenly become live due to some careless social media posts but Im pleased to say is now sealed & the local clock & watch museum are in...

    I've moved to the area this house is in. My father in law suggested I take a look at the house because I want to buy a property here.... I couldn't find any information about the house till I put a search into Google and came up with this thread and the photos, and another site which held photos of the house. I'm currently trying to trace the owners of the property as I'm so disturbed with the amount of decay and vandalism that seems to have taken place over the course of time. In my early...

    ICI Imagedata, Brantham, Essex - July 2019 I had been planning on doing this one for a few weeks. It's about 2 hours from me around the M25; Mookster and I visited last weekend. It's just my sort of thing really; it's quite stripped and smashed up, but its got some amazing decay inside and out; just the kind of industrial decay I always crave, nice and quiet here and a decent undisturbed morning. I didn't realise that this site was actually related to one I had done years ago; Wardle...

    The armament in these batteries was ex Battleship ordinance from scrapped, obsolete ships, and being of such a large calibre was slow to load and fire. Also they were long range guns - hence the time of flight was much longer than the smaller calibre QF ordinance. Plenty of time to manhandle the shells and propellant cartridges into the breeches. Interestingly; when I was a lad, the old sidings that were situated under Hexthorpe Bridge and beyond in Doncaster used to be full of 16 Ton Wagons...

    There is an emergency numberer for gas leaks listed under the local energy suppliers phone numbers. Never waste the Fire Service's time on leaks - unless there is an actual fire or open flames nearby. Most leaks in derelict properties are due to fractured pipework or mains / pipework theft - not just a matter of turning off a tap on an appliance. The Gas Supply Company will deal with the matter far more quickly.

    That's a nice explore. I like the way you move the camera, nice and slow and you examine the calendars. If there's a smell of gas you should have called out the Fire Service and report a leak of gas. You sound like TikiTrex who's also from the country of the Maple leaf. There is a guide to posting videos on this forum.
