    Duchy by Tobi_urbex #04 The starting point of our 2019 Poland road trip was this marshy landscape far away from any big city. It was our first morning in the country. After a long drive from Berlin, we pitched our tents in complete darkness and in the middle of nowhere. Just to wake up to this view.

    HISTORY In May 1864 Liverpool Adult Deaf and Dumb Benevolent Society was established. It was founded by George Healey, a Deaf man. He set up the Society initially to give Deaf people equal access to the Scriptures. They started with just one room in the School for the Deaf and Dumb in Oxford Street. They had no premises where they could meet until 1869 when they were able to rent a room in Pleasant Street. In 1874 the priest in charge of Liverpool gave permission for Sunday services...

    Real shame so much has been stripped and demo'd - ECVB was one of the explores of the decade, IMHO. The museum part was totally fascinating. Nice shots though, the winter sunlight animates it.

    Image 4621 could that be the position of an underground power cable. Maybe someone will tell me different. That house is in a terrible state. If there is a rebuild of the house then a copy of the architects plans would be needed.

    1. The History Located on the borders of Marcinelle and Couillet, near Charleroi, "Le Pêchon" was the name given to Mine No.25 of coal mining company of Marcinelle Nord. It was opened in 1910 and then, 20 years later, absorbed by Monceau-Fontaine, the largest mining company in the Charleroi basin. Many of the mine’s galleries were swampy (hence the name) and infamous for their dangerous nature, especially for the firedamp they concealed. The mine went to a depth of 1,115 meters, passing under...

    1. The History Claremont House is a large, stone built former dwelling and outbuildings, standing in grounds of approximately 1.4 hectares of land. The building was last used as a social club for employees of the nearby Hepworths Refractories, but since has been vacant for many years. Originally built in 1895, the Victorian mansion is now at the point of no return. The roof and most of the internal walls have now gone leaving a shell remaining. It was built by James Swift, owner of the famous...

    I've been looking to check out one of these places for awhile now and you can imagine how excited I was to find out there was an open one almost just up the road! This was a very cool experience and a nice bonus it was in decent condition as well.

    Not much left of this place but its rather charming & photogenic. In 1789 Tydd St. Giles was one of the sixty-eight parishes in the diocese without a school. Dr. Jobson, reporting on the state of the schools in Wisbech hundred in 1814, stated that there were about 50 children of school age in the parish, including many Dissenters. By this date a school had been established in the workhouse, where 30 to 35 children learned their catechism under a master who was allowed £12 a year by the...

    Yeah, I also assume you could probably now do the whole operation on an iPad! It is still semi-live, servers were whirring away, screens were on etc. Its still used for the odd emergency broadcast / links etc.
