    ICI Imagedata, Brantham, Essex - July 2019 I had been planning on doing this one for a few weeks. It's about 2 hours from me around the M25; Mookster and I visited last weekend. It's just my sort of thing really; it's quite stripped and smashed up, but its got some amazing decay inside and out; just the kind of industrial decay I always crave, nice and quiet here and a decent undisturbed morning. I didn't realise that this site was actually related to one I had done years ago; Wardle...

    The armament in these batteries was ex Battleship ordinance from scrapped, obsolete ships, and being of such a large calibre was slow to load and fire. Also they were long range guns - hence the time of flight was much longer than the smaller calibre QF ordinance. Plenty of time to manhandle the shells and propellant cartridges into the breeches. Interestingly; when I was a lad, the old sidings that were situated under Hexthorpe Bridge and beyond in Doncaster used to be full of 16 Ton Wagons...

    There is an emergency numberer for gas leaks listed under the local energy suppliers phone numbers. Never waste the Fire Service's time on leaks - unless there is an actual fire or open flames nearby. Most leaks in derelict properties are due to fractured pipework or mains / pipework theft - not just a matter of turning off a tap on an appliance. The Gas Supply Company will deal with the matter far more quickly.

    That's a nice explore. I like the way you move the camera, nice and slow and you examine the calendars. If there's a smell of gas you should have called out the Fire Service and report a leak of gas. You sound like TikiTrex who's also from the country of the Maple leaf. There is a guide to posting videos on this forum.

    Nice house. A shame about the bannisters. The fireplaces are very large compared with the size of the room it used to heat. I've seen bedrooms about the same size but with smaller fireplaces.

    What a soul less place that is - and the exterior looks quite nice.

    I love when I explore a place and come out of it as if I knew the people that once lived there!! Not sure where Ron is now but I enjoyed getting to him 😊. Not sure how to post pictures of this place but I'm sure I'll eventually figure this forum out 😉 https://youtu.be/BBljrcotUP0

    Visited this place on a little check-up of things fairly local to me, saw it had popped up recently so thought why not. Was a good little mooch in a fabulous setting, however the extremely close railway bridge is somewhat offputting I'd imagine - if it was me lucky enough to be the purchaser of the property I'd perhaps want to build a house a little further away from the bridge! The house is situated on an Black Potts Ait - the island which gives the house it's name, and is currently for sale....

    The explore: This one was a straight forward easy one and was not even planned we just in the area anyway, Care home itself looks like it got brought and something then failed. Fun little explore. I remember reading about this one online year ago when it closed. History : https://www.kentonline.co.uk/thanet/news/care-home-closed-due-to-41856/

    Good stuff, I can remember as an apprentice jig boring parts that the company I worked for supplied to Molins for their machines. They had to be machined to a very tight tolerance and were quite tricky, I didn't like working on them!

    Good to see this one again! Doesn’t look as if much has changed here recently.

    1. The History The short and tall of it is that I can’t find any specific history about this little church. Searched high and wide but nothing came up on this delightful twin chapel at the east end of the graveyard in the north Derbyshire town of Staveley. There’s very little history about the graveyard as a whole beyond that it was founded in 1884 and there are 25 Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) graves here; 11 from WW1 and 14 from WW2. It was under the supervision of the Rural...

    1. The History The works are located on the east bank of the River Derwent, immediately to the north of Matlock Bath, and are accessed from a metalled road off the main approach to Matlock Bath Railway Station or via footbridge over the river from Dale Road (A6). The site was originally known as Viaton and was established for the mining of iron ore in the first half of the 1800s. When this was exhausted in 1850, Lead carbonate or “white lead” (a pigment used in white paint since the 4th...

    1. The History Westwood Mill is a Grade II-listed mill four miles south-west of Huddersfield in the town of Linthwaite. It is the earliest-surviving woollen mill in the Colne Valley, with the earliest part of the complex being a ‘scribbling mill’ (preparation of raw fleece), built by John Shaw, adjacent to the (now filled-in) mill pond. It was built in 1798 around the same time the Huddersfield Narrow Canal was being built. A carding and fulling Mill, office, warehouse, workshops, boiler and...
