    1. The History The farm is the opposite side of the former Tuxford to Chesterfield railway, facing the former Ollerton railway station. Absolutely nothing out there in terms of history for this place. The small farm hour has been trashed by the local yobs and is looking rather forlorn. 2. The Explore Easy access and fairly unspectacular. But in these climes a derp is a derp, so had a quick one around this place. 3. The Pictures Ollerton Farm 23 by HughieDW, on Flickr

    That must be the worst one that I've seen on this site. That would need a complete refurbish and refit inside and out.

    Hi All Me and Fluffy took a trip to Wenford Dries on our fly round of Cornwall. As well as Lead, copper, Arsenic, Uranium and tin, China clay has always been a massive industry in Cornwall and remains to this day. The Wenford Dries was built in the early 20th C, to dry china clay slurry, the china clay slurry was moved from the quarry some miles away by pipe line and placed in massive settling tanks at the rear of the building, this slurry was then poured in to drying tanks above long...

    1. The History Originally build for local iron works owner Benjamin Smith in 1841, the Lodge passed through several owners before it came into the ownership of A. William Byron circa 1881 who was instrumental in seeing through the Lancashire, Derbyshire and East Coast Railway Bill through parliament. The lodge then sold in 1919 for 2,000 to tenant Mr D Turner. Then the history gets a bit sketchy. However, having been a pub/restaurant for a number of years. It included outbuildings that...

    I know such a shame its been left to ruin. My friend was quite upset to see it in this way. They had no choice but to leave though. Imerys told them to take there offer or they will buid the tip around them, and that's exactly what they have done

    For an overgrown farm steading, that's actually really attractive. Agree that the granite-built farmhouse is unusual, particularly the chimney.

    Petit Paris #01 How can it be possible that a whole family goes missing overnight and abandons their home with everything in it? This time, we will try to answer this question! Somewhere in rural Germany we discovered a vintage home where time has been standing still for several years already. We searched the whole house for clues to find out its story. Petit Paris #14 For our first road trip of the year, we decided to head to the Austrian Alps. It's a long ride to the South and we...

    Hi All On the back of another trip report this is from our Corwall trip back in March. This is the former Mixed mine called Wheal Busy, a massive site there is still an engine house on site and a black smith shop. The main reason I wanted to visit the site was the Brunton calciner, a roasting furnace used to dry and remove the Arsenic minerals from the ore, the ore was roasted and the flue gasses was sent along a long zig-zag passage to allow the Arsenic oxide to form on the sides of the...

    Im surprised that this place does not appear to have been posted on this forum yet... Anyway got to explore this place on a beautiful sunny day. The farm is nestled within very active clay workings belonging to imerys, so therefore is not easily accessible and its a bit of a hike to get there. Some history: The actual farmhouse itself was built in the 1500's and was once part of a larger manor house. The last family to occupy this farm was my friends grandparents who also owned...

    Just looking at a backlog & this place hasnt come up for a while so just thought I would share. The Freemasons Province of Warwickshire became 275 years old in 2003. A banquet was held at the headquarters of the Province in Birmingham on 22 April 2003 to celebrate this most significant event Following the resignation of Michael Clarke, Sir Stanley Harley took over the leadership of the Province and was installed on 30 November 1965 by the Grand Master.
