    ABC Cinema The power functioned on the lower floors are partly into the foyer on our first visit, which is when the lit up shots were taken. If you left the lights on for more than 3-4 minutes, a loud alarm would go off so we saved turning them on to the end of our visit. On our second venture, the lights wouldn't work at all. I heard someone else went following us and got them back on again though, so I'm not sure how the situation with them truly is. We'll start with the main...

    Part of the well scattered HAA defences for the Scunthorpe Steel Works. The first constructions were the outer line, done during the 'phoney war' period and always, seemingly, in brick. In the late '50's one would find swaths of barbed wire all over the place and signs of slit trenches for air raid protection. The buildings were there purely to protect ammunition and equipment.

    Me too! Some of them were single brick walls with a thick concrete roof. The walls had folded under the weight of the roof. IKEA-issue self-assembly AA post :stung:

    1. The History On the north bank of a large pond, St Christopher's Well is a man-made grotto is known locally as the 'wishing well'. Measuring 4m in diameter and 2m high, the grotto is fashioned out of volcanic tuffa and lined with cemented rubble stone, inset with ammonites and coloured stones. At the back is a circular well and overflow channel which flows out to the entrance into the pond. Set above the well in the wall of the cave is a three verse poem, reportedly by Huius Nympha Loci and...

    1. The History Searched high and low for info on this one and could find anything. All I know is that it was a former Methodist Church which was then sold off and bought by a man who was a car enthusiast and he used the chapel as his workshop and kept his cars and tractors in the grounds. It appears he passed away and the place has just been left. The church has holes in the roof and its days are surely numbered while the assorted vehicles gently rust away. 2. The Explore Dont normally do...

    1. The History Heavy anti-aircraft battery (HAA) sites were permanent sites consisting of four guns mounted in the centre of their own circular earthen embankment, each of which had concrete lockers for storing ammunition. These four emplacements were evenly positioned in a semi-circular C shape around a central battery command post with the bulge of the C pointing roughly in the opposite direction to the area being defended so as to cover the approach to the target. The command post...

    My god how this place has deteriorated. I went on courses here in the 90's for BT. Advance major works jointing and a couple of computer systems courses. Was always a great laugh especially the bar and snooker room in the main house. Accommodation was in newish blocks down the bottom, built in the 80's I think.
