    Intro In September 2018 we made two visits to this district hospital and over the Christmas period I had realised that A) my photos were crap. and B) we had missed an operating theater and a staircase. Once again I got in contact to a few people, one which we bumped into on the day, and planned another explore. The Explore We arrived bright and early, that's if you call 10am early, and shortly found that the area we previously entered into had been boarded. We found that security had...

    Visited in the excellent company of Bikin Glynn. On the way to Ambergate Wire works and Oakhurst House you pass these set of workers’ cottages. There are 5-6 terrace properties and a series of outbuildings which were used to house the workers of the nearby Johnson and Nephew wire works. They’ve clearly been boarded up for a while and last time I was here you could get in some of them, although like the wire works there seems to have been a concerted effort to keep them sealed. Recently -...

    'Oh. So where have you been today BWT?' Nowhere really. Just to see the most awesome radar station on top of a mountain surrounded by running horses (with bells lol) and then saw a fantastic sunset and stars.. What an awesome location!! The photos are stunning. Industrial structures that spell danger and yet surrounded by scenery and horses. The photos are superb. Now normally I'd be begging to see the machinery that might still be in the huts but no - your photos for the location are...

    Ice Station Zebra #01 by Broken Window Theory, on Flickr Our Italy road trip was nearly over when we found ourselves somewhere in the mountains one evening. The roads up to this cluster of defunct radar dishes aren't really suited for driving anymore because there are massive potholes everywhere. However, somehow we made it to the top and got instantly rewarded with one of the most beautiful sunsets we have ever experienced. Starchaser by Broken Window Theory, on Flickr After an...

    Small cheap (sub £250,000) no space social housing thats how...then compare that to Houghton Grange,90 houses in excess of £600,000 with huge gardens in the 15 acres of the Grange..and then 300 in the Field next to the grange. Kinda staggering they can have 90 in one area and 300 in another...both parcels of land very similar sizes...lol. Even the Grange it self is being converted into 6 Apartments.

    This is one of the few churches I visited on a recent trip to Norfolk. It had a kind of stonehenge feel to which was very cool. Word of warning to anyone driving up to see it, don't go through the puddles, my car started smoking struggling to get up there haha. Hope you enjoys some pictures I took.

    Yeah just go for it! Someone suggested to me one of these was lived in but pretty sure it wasnt although one was locked. What u see there is all they are (a small octaganol room) Im doubtfull in this day anyone could live in them. That said obviously some are bigger so the ones you talk about may be.

    Well that was certainly different! You must have some balls just walking in! Mention of people still living on the estate - hmm! The grounds sound similar to a park we had up here: Lambton Lion Park. School dragged us to Lambton several times. It was a park staffed by frustrated people who'd get quite angry when giving talks about their animals (might have something to do with us kids being little scroats too). Lambton Lion Park was partially explored years ago and is mostly built on now. ...

    Lilford park was originally acquired by William Briowne in 1473 & the beautiful hall was built in 1495. The estate has gone through numerous owners & is now owned by the Micklewright family who are still resident a lot of the time. The grounds also housed the USAF 303rd station hospital during WW2 which was later converted to a Polish school until 1954 but all trace of this has now gone. Aviaries were built for Thomas Littleton Powys in the 1800s which become relevant here. Thomas...

    Until late 1984 my parents used to rent a set from Granada. I only remember an engineer looking at it once, who looked like a young Jim Royle. That was in spite of it being an older set, as I remember it had sliders for the settings & push buttons for the channels, which were more typical of a mid late 1970s TV. My parents replaced it with a Philips 16 inch set with remote control from Comet. The Argos catalogue for that year has the same set for £250. This lasted about 20 years & only...
