    I was graciously handed this one by a non member friend to check out while out with my lad & though not much there its a rather photogenic place. It is a typical grade 2 listed water powered corn mill with not a lot left inside. Built Circa 1800, & the machinery was replaced later in C19. Its construction is of English garden wall bond red brick. Slate roof with gabled ends and brick dentil eaves; the taller main block has been reclad in

    A lot of interesting stuff there. You could hook that genny to the rear of your bicycle, give you a help going uphill. Thos are two of the biggest bolt cutters I've ever seen.

    That's a nice house. Looks like my former Grandmas' house, same detail. I like the comfy armchair with th throw over it and the slippers, just waiting for someone to come home.

    I pointed this place out to Grom the other week as I couldn't venture into it due to being there on a weekday and there being a hell of a lot of activity around the site, but seeing his photos he was sending me when in there I knew I needed to give it a look myself. Fast forward a week and a bit and I returned, and a thoroughly enjoyable mooch was had. The factory began life as the Meredith Drew & Co. biscuit factory built in 1950, but this venture only lasted until 1962 when the site was...

    This really is fantastic. That modern TV box is really out of place. I've got that same K-9 on VHS. I notice there are two electricity meters. Seems it was two residences, or was at some point.

    Great stuff. They really need to restore all this, but properly securing it first would be a good idea.

    This is amazing. I love that old TV. I see the neon light is on for the heater. Maybe the heating is on to keep free from damp?

    It's been a while since I've posted on here... lockdown has allowed me to finally get around to editing stuff in the archive! I'm desperate to get out the door and find some new places, got a trip down south planned later this month so hopefully I'll find something along the way. :smile: This was a lovely, big house in the middle of nowhere, with only 1 house close-by. What I assumed to be the neighbour actually cut my explore short by wandering around the grounds (think he was keeping the...

    Just a random place I stumbled upon, but turned out to be a rather nice mooch. No history known Im afraid but looks like a typical farmstead. There was obviously car repairs going on here as there is a lot of "newer mark" cars laying around. This Nissen hut was turned into a makeshift spray booth, of sorts.

    Lovely find... so refreshing to see something that's totally untouched. Those cobwebs are insane!

    its a ruin now, i first came here in 1988, was a different place back then, 90% of the windows were intact, you had a front door to open and walk into, no graf, the lights not smashed, fixures and fittings still in place, no vandalism hardly. Each of the 6 barrack blocks had a name of a second world war battle on a black painted wood sign above each front door, 30 odd years of being stripped does this to a place

    A nice history record. Once the homes have been built, go back and take the "now" photos for comparison.

    Could make a great home conversion if allowed to add windows. The tunnel would be a temp controlled wine store, with glass doors facing into the lounge or kitchen area. I would love to find a place like this in the SW to convert in to a home.
