    Nice to see something just down the road from me. Top job there Deak. They blockwalled up the main house earlier this year after planning permission was put in for conversion to flats and clearance of the site. As you can see, nothing has changed. Hope this update helps.

    Rubex started a thread Denton Church in Religious Sites
    A Church on this site is mentioned in the Doomsday Survey of 1086. Some parts of the current church date from as far back as the 12th and 13th Century. Attempts to rebuild it were made in 1629 and 1665 by Sir Robert Bruce Cotton, and his grandson, Sir John. The church was restored in 1865, but deteriorated in the mid 20th Century and was abandoned in the 1960s.

    Wow that's shagged. I popped back to Honiley at the beginning of the year but found they had boarded absolutely every window and door up and put a new fence around it, but might have changed a number of months down the line.

    Actually what remains of the main building is a very sound Portland Stone structure and would restore - however it is Grade 11 and that certainly puts the dampers on any future plans. HJ you obviously found the right building, but that Coventry Telegraph article was about an upcoming auction sale in July 2016 for the building and the 150K was the auctioneers hoped for outcome. (If I have got the dates correct!) So what happened and what is the present situation? Hughie; get your money on...

    A minutes quiet reflection would not go amiss when visiting this station, to remember the 4 crew and 3 spectators who were killed when Vulcan VX770 (one of the prototypes)literally fell out of the sky during a flying display on 20th September 1958. At that time pilots were still learning and coming to terms with the flight characteristics of big delta wings - sadly the plane did not have enough inertial speed to carry it through the intended manoeuvres and the engines did not spool up quickly...

    Nice photographs but the base has a history to it. It was a bomber base during the war with Lancaster, Wellington and Handley Page aircraft taking off from there.

    Whilst up in Nottingham, me and a few friends decided to check out the old Officers Mess at Syerston. Initial plan was to do RAF Honiley, but we want to do that in winter. So here's Syerston instead. Mess closed in 1970, and was used as an Islamic School until 2007. It's since been set on fire, and decayed pretty rapidly considering it's only been 10 years. Was planned to be demolished in 2013, however that was dropped and proceedings were put in place to ensure that it was blocked off to...

    Wow, that place is just about to fall in itself. I don't think it could be saved, new floors, new ceiling etc. I don't know if I looked at the right building but according to the Coventry Telegraph its for sale at 150K.

    Quick visit to this old place with my friend a few weeks back. Built back in 1806, looks like at one point it would have been a lovely place. Bought by the RBL in 1954, it was in use for over 50 years until it was disbanded in 2004, from what i believe was financial issues. History is very thin on the place so i've only really got info on what i've heard from people i know. I'd seriously advise avoiding this place however, this is by far the most dangerous building i've been in. Very...

    Swan is okay, it's small and impossible to get lost in, but it's also the biggest death trap as it's the oldest and most unstable. Nice crane in Swan, worth a look if you're down this way but definitely not worth a trip by itself.

    Thanks all. Thanks smiler. God I hope I don't need a knee replacement yet! It's the third time I have twisted it up though, so it isn't happy! Yes, I worry I will keep on doing this despite it being illogical.

    They both have great old fixtures and fittings. Great old toilet. The cupboards of keys and the safe is rather unusual.

    Visited this tunnel with man gone wrong.also known as the high street tunnel.there was is another one a bit further along but we did not bother with that one which I am glad now we did not as its a bat sanctuary.the tunnel measures a total distance of 557 yards was opened in 1875,the tunnel closed in 1951 for passengers but finally closed in 1958 for good.i presume goods trains used the latest ne for the remaining years as is what seemed to happen a lot.
