    1. The History Baron Hill Mansion lies parkland to the north of Beaumaris, Anglesey. The first house at Baron Hill was built by Sir Richard Bulkeley in 1618. During the English Civil War, Richard Bulkeley's successor, Colonel Thomas Bulkeley apparently invited King Charles I to take possession of the house and set up his court there. In the early eighteenth century the house was the seat of Richard Bulkeley, 4th Viscount Bulkeley who maintained Jacobite sympathies. An old drawing of the...

    Just a short one from here with not many pics (yeah u heard that right) dropped by here with my lad a few months back but didnt venture far in as it all seemed a bit the same tbh. The entrance is enchantingly overgrown & we did manage a bit of excitement being chased by a farmer when we left. The history shamelessly nicked from an old report Ashby Tunnel was originally opened as a tunnel in 1804, As a cheaper way of connecting the Coventry canal from Bedworth to mining districts...

    History; I've not been able to find too much history about the farm in particular, although history about the surrounding Estate and the main house was much easier to find. There are a few mentions of the farm in the below; 1810 - Ruckley was sold to Moreton Aglionby Slaney, for whom the existing house was improved. A floodgate and weir were erected in Far Moor and New Moor, which was probably the origin of Ruckley Pool and Monks Pool. Other improvements on the estate may also have...

    Stoke Heath was made up of a number of camps and working sites. Longford was a camp site which included Mess Room and NAAFI. Sutton was a camp site only and personnel used the longford Mess and NAAFI Facilities. Headquarters was situated on the edge of Ternhill Airfield along with work site A. B site was a vehicle repair site to which we travelled on what was known as the Burma Road from Longford Camp. B site is now a Prison. Other sites were Roman Camp and Buntingsdale, married quarters...

    Submerged Church #03 Is this how you imagine what the gate to the netherworld would look like? Well, this is it. For at least 2,500 years, it has been a place of prayer, and you just need to look around to understand why. Spontaneous subsidence of land and other phenomena made this the site of gods. Already worshipped in ancient times, then by Romans, and recently by Catholics, this is one of the most fascinating yet mysterious cult sites in all of Italy. This manmade structure reconquered...

    Been a bit of talk on here lately so thought I would clarify from a visit last week. It is most definitely still accessible though Fri afternoon as we did is not the best time as its by no means discreet. made more difficult by cars pouring out of the neighbouring Balfour site which now dominates the land behind here. As someone recently mentioned this is not what I would call a "shadow" factory as its not actually underground but rather has a labyrinth of basements but does have an...

    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. The...

    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...

    Imperial Dock Grain Warehouse The Imperial Dock grain warehouse is a Monumental 15-bay flat-roofed concrete grain elevator and warehouse that was built in 1933 and extended by 1960. It is a well preserved and early example of a concrete grain elevator, remarkable for the survival of its original machinery. Grain was Leith's main import. In the first half of the 20th century industrial buildings such as grain elevators provided a focus for the application of modern architectural...

    If you were lucky enough to catch my first report you will know I loved this place, it has such natural beauty and appears that nature is saying screw u mankind this place is mine! After my report last year which can be found here https://www.derelictplaces.co.uk/main/rural-sites/37321-kennell-vale-gunpowder.html someone said to me "u missed the best stuff beyond the public boundaries" which of course sparked my interest & I had promised myself a revisit anyway. "Best" Im not sure...

    Not much is known about this place. It seems its just another care home that closed down & is in a severe state of dilapidation. Most of the 1st floor is now inaccessible (which was on my early visit) & the building is literally splitting in two. However when my lad started photography GCSE & his first topic was decay it seemed like an obvious day out as it has some great natural decay. The most intriguing thing here for me is the relationship between this place & the house...

    Well where to start with this place, its nothing you havent seen before but as a car lover this was my first proper car graveyard I done & it blew my mind. Iv been back here a few times & as you may know its mostly cleared now though a few relics still survive, I can only hope that everything that has been removed has been put to apropriate use I couldnt find much history here so this has come from a prev report. The Medler family are huge around this area. The elder, Lenny Medler...

    Praze ROC Bunker I'm new here and this is my first post, I hope you enjoy. OPEN All surface features remain intact. Externally the post is in reasonable condition but is deteriorating. The hatch is open however in poor condition. Internally the post is also in good condition apart from the door to the main living/monitoring quarters of the bunker which was blown off by the police who thought there were explosives inside. The table, shelf and cupboard remain together with a large...

    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...

    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.
