    That's a nice building maybe a little refurbishment is needed. I bet in its heyday the men would not be allowed entry unless one was wearing a shirt and tie. Jeans, trainers and piercings and you're out.

    Nicely done. There are a few items here that could be repurposed the chairs for the disabled and the beds could go to a hostel for the homeless. But we hear of news reports that patients are put into corridors because there's no beds.

    This place is totally knackered. I cannot identify any of the rooms as what they were used for. And the two arson attacks just finished it.

    This place is nothing special - But I was in area :) The explore : This one has some reason been on my *todo* list for a while now - On the way back from doing the last bits of the west park - we stopped off at Hollywood lodge - The building itself is F**k but makes some nice photos. Even know it was raining and wet. still made a nice little mooch around.

    The explore : After seeing this place online and thinking I was too late to see any of it ( Well I am technical) I saw that the ward was still there so on a cold + wet Friday afternoon, we took a drive down to Epson cause we had the time off work to go and visit Scott's house - for a little ward with stuff left in it not gonna lie was pretty impressed. we also did do the Hollywood house too... But that for another blog/report. History:-...

    Wellington Rooms The Neo-classical building was designed by the architect Edmund Aikin and built between 181516 as a subscription assembly room for the Wellington Club. It was originally used by high society for assemblies, dance balls and parties. The Wellington Club was wound up in 1922. Between 1923 and 1940 it was the Embassy Club and was used for tea dances, classes and weddings. During WW2, the building became the first base for the Rodney Youth Centre though bomb damage...

    Home depot was in Aberdeen, and worked freight trains between Aberdeen to Inverness and to Dundee. Rough shunts? I never did that, maybe knocked the wagons a bit hard.

    Headley Court was an Elizabethan farm house bought by the Cunliffe family, from Tyrrell's Wood, Leatherhead. They later sold this farm house and built in 1899 the imposing mansion at the centre of Headley Court to the north, namely under Lord Cunliffe, who was Chairman of the Bank of England. Its architect was Edward Warren. During World War II, it was used as the Headquarters for the VII Corps and then for the Canadian Corps. Since the war, it has been used as a Royal Air Force and Joint...

    Agreed its just not cost effective for a company to remove & sell they should just be auctioned off to individuals to remove at their own cost, have kinda like a house clearance open day ;-) We all know how much decent theatre lights fetch like the ones at Staffs Royal, I wouldnt mind one for my dining room

    During my working days I attended many 'rough shunt' incidents. One particular incident at High Marnham managed to get ten empty HAA's buffer locked - still it happened in dry weather, so wasn't too bad. Usually we always seemed to get called out in pouring rain / winter conditions! Where were you stationed?

    Do the maths and you will find that it is just not cost effective to remove, refurbish and store the worn out junk that is pictured here in this excellent report. The purchase costs will have been written off years ago and the books balanced - hence the abandonment. If this wasn't the case; all we would see in these abandoned facilities would be empty rooms and stores. The making of rather boring and bland reports me thinks!

    That's a nice house with some mould issues. The electricity must be still connected as in the master bedroom the digital clock is working. Looks to me the house must be worth in the region of the 400K. The windows don't seem to be broken.

    A nice set of pictures. I'm amazed that some of the screens are still there. I thought they would be repurposed somewhere else. I would like the bed in picture 11. The bed has a motor and the height can be adjusted with a remote control, and the same with the chair in picture 13. Those two together cost around 1600 on the web.

    West Park Hospital is somewhere that has a very very special place in my heart and my memories, as I'm sure it does for a lot of you who've been around over a decade. It wasn't my first explore but it was the location that really cemented in my mind that this 'urban exploration' lark was what I wanted to spend my free time doing, thanks to many relaxed and carefree visits during the glorious late summer/autumn of 2009 - the short few months that became known as 'open season'. Looking back at it...

    It's currently in probate with the heirs squabbling over what happens to it. It's a shame that within that time it's been attacked by morons.

    Like the photos. Very interesting. There they sit, with their bridges and so on further down the line, alone and forgotten. Gradually rusting and rotting away. How many years will that take? Thanks for sharing the pics.

    I bet you've all been dying to see what a sad mess the inside is now after the local morons had their way over the course of the last week, it shows just how quickly something can be ruined by loose lips that sink ships when it comes to Facebook. Hopefully the police presence there yesterday gives the owners a kick up the arse to secure it properly as it was an absolute joke until that point. It would seem the neighbours are quite rightly fed up of the sort of unsubtle morons that seem to...

    Yep, really comprehensive and the Coloquix pieces are great. It's both surprising and sad that Firbeck is one of the last derelict collieries left in the UK - considering how many were explorable over the past 15 years, and almost all of them have gone now.

    Another case of where Listing will only ensure that the structure slowly falls in on its self, and self demolishes. Knowing the area well, perhaps affordable housing would be a better outcome.
