    Superb photos considering it must have been pitch black. The second last picture shows there is a hole in the floor at the end of the stairs just in case there are any invaders this is what will happen to them.

    Nicely captured. I had a look for an earlier post for comparison and found one by MD which was done back in 2014, comparing with those in 2014 and Mikey's post the house has become worse for wear and what looks like vandalism. Here's the link to MD's post if you want a look see. https://www.derelictplaces.co.uk/main/residential-sites/29647-packington-hall-farm-packington-leicestershire-2014-a.html

    Superb set Mikey. Had a failure here about after ago as it was in the middle of the day and there were too many people around. Sad about the spray-can yobs. Despite that you have produced an excellent set of images as you always do.

    Been meaning to visit this place for ages. Don't have a lot of free time on my hands at the moment with the new job and general life stress and the bullshit that goes hand in hand with both. So, sorry I have been neglecting the forum! :( After having to go in to work on my day off, it was great to have a long overdue catch up with Gromr123 down this way. I am sure I was supposed to be about the weekend he first went, but I was probably working or had a dog shaped spanner flung into that...

    I always make a point of my hatred of videos whenever I bother to comment on them when posted here, but that is nicely done mate. Great shooting, composition, editing, music... a refreshing change. I still hate videos though. But that is a nice middle finger to the youtube generation. Thanks for posting that one mate, watched it a couple of times because it was short and tastefully done. Welcome to the forum!

    Welcome to the forum! I like the video a lot, it's rare I watch a whole video without skipping. It's very apocalyptic feeling and your use of light and processing is lovely. However, would you mind editing it to follow the guide to posting location reports... https://www.derelictplaces.co.uk/main/help-and-faqs/16286-guide-posting-location-report-new-post.html Or if you're not too interested in doing that then for future reference there is a thread for videos here;

    The arc rectifiers would probably have been used to generate DC power for the lighting systems. Back in the early - mid 90s I use to work with a DC lighting system including carbon arc spotlights at a Theatre, crazy things, particularly if the carbon rods exploded which they did occasionally. However seeing the old DC systems is incredibly rare.

    In 30 plus years of arson investigations where large derelict/vacant buildings were involved, I only came across four cases (out of a total of 45 incidents) where so called 'developers' were actually involved in the arson planning. In all cases skilled arsonists set the fires - the integrity of the structures was compromised and immediate demolition followed on public safety grounds. No developer is going to involve local idiots to set a fire on which their profits depend on; they would soon...

    First, thank you for these great images. The item in question is a mercury rectifier for converting high current AC to DC. They are quite spectacular in use, and the electrodes, dancing on the top of the mercury give off a purple light. They also get incredibly hot, hence the cooling apparatus.
