    Sad that the cretins think that this is a suitable place to dump rotting vehicles. In populating these places a great number of Allied Troops were killed or maimed and that should never be forgotten!

    Nice little find, starting to like these decaying churches and chapels more.

    Having known about this place for quite a few years and taking me an embarrassingly long time to find, despite the obvious name, I finally found myself at All Saints Church. After thinking twice after finding a rather live wasp nest, we made our way inside. Unfortunately most of the features have long gone, namely the seats, leaving only decaying floors and pigeon droppings. A short, yet certainly sweet, little explore that took an equally embarrassing amount of time wondering why the...

    Itís noticeable, I havenít explored much the last few years so with the screw it attitude I head over to what I thought had long gone. With a few baffled people telling me otherwise, over to POW 116 we went! After parking up and walking to the nearest easy entry point we were surprised to find a family showing their kids around the site and a few FPV drones zipping around the site. The site is very much in ruins which was somewhat to be expected, but the highlight for myself being some...

    Returning from a nearby site, knowing this place was only 10 mins away, I thought it would be rude not to check it out. Not knowing if it was even going to be open, we were pleasantly surprised. Having found somewhere to park and a good few minutes walk not knowing what to expect, we were surprised to find the ROC post wide open! The surprise didnít stop there either, after climbing through the hatch and down the entrance shaft was one of the most filled ROC post I had ever seen....

    Cheers Sausage - The pump is a bog standard rotary lift pump and I suspect it has been modified into a dosing pump. Ground water in cemeteries can become a bit contaminated and I think this pump was used to dose 'scent' or disinfectant into water being pumped out of the diggings. There again the tin can may be just a means of holding water to keep the pump primed as the 'waste water' was completely removed from the diggings. Obviously hand made to do a needed/vital job.

    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!).

    sj9966 replied to a thread Clockmakers House in Residential Sites
    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.

    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.
