    Had to be attempted - the bottom ladder had been cut off, but the scrappers lashed some metal barriers together so we managed to scramble up - just like the chimney at Steetley Magnesite many years ago! Pity we chose a miserable sleety day for it … apparently there’s just a load of bird crap and a dead owl at the top so I didn't miss much. I suspect so, and all non-deductable cash in hand as well…

    Honestly, NONE of it was HDR! I had a filter on my lens and Nikon is known for colour saturation. The settings I had were off and my lens was covered in dust. I overcompensated, I apologise

    Fair play for giving the chimney a go! Nah he didn’t tell me about that, but it doesn’t surprise me. He did say he has started using dousing rods to find the last of the cables as they hoover up the remaining bits and bobs. Bet they have made a few quid out of there, especially the merchant they take it to!

    A huge thanks to @tbolt for the intel on these first two beauties. Also visited during my Welsh road trip. SINISTER CHAPEL Not too sure why this is called sinister chapel and I've not got any history on the place, but it was in the middle of nowhere! What a spectacular drive to get there and not a soul around for miles (just my kind of place).

    I passed this on a road trip through Wales this past May. Couldn't find any history on this place but apparently the sheep would go into the back room to die. Thankfully, the council had cleaned up the carcasses. Small, but one of my favourite little explores :smile:

    History The public baths in Manor Place, Walworth closed as a public facility in 1976. The building had been declared structurally unsound but it was also a victim of the changing times and improved living conditions. Since the end of the nineteenth century it had been a focus for the community, where the weekly wash was done, where it was possible to have a hot bath and a swim, and where sports events, concerts and public meetings of all types were held. At a time when few houses had...

    Thank you all.the engine room being stripped was a bit of a let down but I guess it's better than it being scrapped altogether,and the needs of the use of tge boat had to be seen first.and it did see service not decommissioned the year it was commissioned.experienced boat workers are now working on it

    Sorry that is a load of old bollocks! P155 was launched in 1978 and decommissioned in 1995. It was then placed in 'care and maintenance' before being disposed of to 'commercial' interests, thus it never was left to become derelict on some sand bank or tied up in some old dock - like others in her class did. She is now obviously well cared for in her present role, but other similar British war time MGB's used in similar ways have long since decayed and been scrapped.
