    Late to the party again here but when @HughieD suggested popping in here it was a no brainer. combined with the fact that there was a possibility to meet the Godfather of Shaw's The Lone Ranger I was super excited. I wont go into the history as its been covered so many times, but if you want to read Hughie's excellent report here https://www.derelictplaces.co.uk/main/industrial-sites/37253-shaws-diggle-lancs-july-2019-a.html?highlight=shaw or just type Shaw in the searchbar.

    Ok a bit missleading that title, there is no house here but rather just barns & greenhouse. I actually pulled in this entrance to relieve myself when out the other month & thought whats this then! Im honestly baffled by whats happened here. The place was up for sale in 2014 for 2m & looked a stunning well kept property https://www.business-live.co.uk/retail-consumer/lansdowne-knowle-property-day-review-6462202

    thanks for these great pictures, stunning architecture. I seem to remember an ancient hilltop Italian town, very similar to this one, being featured in the TV programme Abandoned Engineering. The town had to be quickly evacuated due to a major earthquake. (quakes not uncommon in that area) Efforts over the years to bulk up and make firm the hillside had actually made matters worse.

    Population Zero #01 Whatever you think is a permanent part of your life won’t last forever. Somewhere on an Italian mountainside, we found the sad proof of that. There is a broken city where families lost everything. After a decade of neglect, hundreds of homes sit empty today in varying states of deterioration. What happened here? Wherever you go: After stepping through a portal, you are constantly finding yourself in another time. The houses still contain all the possessions, which...

    A early start on a chilly Sat morn saw myself & @Down and beyond heading for a few local tunnels. the walk up in sunrise was stunning. East Norton tunnel was one of three tunnels built on the new Great Northern and London North Western Joint Railway (GN&LNW) line in east Leicestershire. The other two being Hose tunnel and Ingarsby tunnel (or Thurnby tunnel). We did Thurnby too with hillarious consequences but you will have to wait for that one ;-) About a mile north of the tunnel...

The airfield opened during May 1939 and was used by RAF Bomber Command during the Second World War with the loss of 86 aircraft. The station closed in 1994, though the Ministry of Defence (MoD) retained it as a strategic reserve. Having lain derelict...

    the plaster relief on a green background above the auditorium looks interesting - I suppose it hasn't been vandalised or stolen (yet) because it's so high up. Nice stained glass too.

    Ooh, that's really interesting. Wow, it hasn't changed much, has it. We didn't go in there, no, but it doesn't look like we missed much. It was incredibly overgrown and without getting stung and scratched to death, entry wouldn't have been easy. Do you know what's going on with the place at the moment? Barely looks like it changed since you went.

    Located quite a distance away to the north of Stafford town centre. The Sandonia Cinema & Theatre was opened on 20th November 1920 with a stage production of “Chu Chin Chow”. The first film to be screened was Leslie Henson in “Alf’s Button” on 27th November 1920. The facade of the building is attractively decorated in white stone, with the name ‘Sandonia’ in the stonework over the entrance Inside the extremely long and narrow auditorium, seating was located in stalls and circle levels.
