    A nice little explore that. Remember getting chased out by secca so we had to go back and get straight on the roof. Nice shots. Wish I'd got more of the dials and stuff.

    Time really stood still in this place in more ways than one! I have little history on this delightful place, Obviously the original owner was a watch / clock maker who I believe died some time ago. It is rumoured that his daughter then lived in the property into old age, but why the house was never "cleared out" remains a mystery to me! This place has suddenly become live due to some careless social media posts but Im pleased to say is now sealed & the local clock & watch museum are in...

    I've moved to the area this house is in. My father in law suggested I take a look at the house because I want to buy a property here.... I couldn't find any information about the house till I put a search into Google and came up with this thread and the photos, and another site which held photos of the house. I'm currently trying to trace the owners of the property as I'm so disturbed with the amount of decay and vandalism that seems to have taken place over the course of time. In my early...

    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.

    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 😉

    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 :

    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!
