    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Since redundancy at the end of August (Not Covid Related) I have been suffering somewhat with some nasty sinus issues; so haven’t been awfully active on the old Urbex Front. I did however discover a very local Old Mill to me; and what a beauty! I spent about 2 hours just picking through this tiny little place, which though bare; is a really nicely preserved little mill with some wonderful features inside it. There is very little history about the place online; except ownership during the...

    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...

    1. The History Pen-yr-orsedd Slate Quarry is located near the village of Talysarn in the Nantlle valley in North Wales. It was first developed in 1816 as an open working, and subsequently, under the ownership of the Darbishire family, mills were built on three successive levels. The first mill was built in 1860 and two years later in 1862 the first connection to the 3 ft 6 in Nantlle railway was made which extended to all but the highest levels of the quarry. This allowed the carriage of slate...

    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.

    So this is an old abandoned/derelict farm I stumbled upon by accident. After some research I did find out there was a murder here in 1971 (manslaughter) This place has been sadly damaged by vandals but it was still interesting.

    A couple of weeks ago; I took a drive up to the tunnels near Market Harborough. I hadn’t been exploring much this year and many thanks to The @The Lone Shadow for organising this trip, its local to him and one he’s frequented. It was really starting to get cold and damp; and I had found that I had left my Lenser in the Mill I had visited a few days previously…. DOH!!!! I hastily bought a torch from Argos and also borrowed The Lone Shadow's Arsenal of lighting equipment! We walked...

    1. The History Grade II Listed, St. David’s church is located in Bangor, North Wales. The church with its imposing Bell Tower was built in 1888 by the London based Sir Arthur Blomfield. Built in an early English Gothic style, it was intended as a memorial church to Dean Edwards under the benefaction of Elizabeth Atcherley Symes of Gorphwysfa and initially intended as a church for the railway community, it cost £8,000 (just over £1m in today’s money). The church closed in 2013 due to a falling...

    Cliffe Park Hall Cliffe Park Hall, at the north end of the lake, was built by John Haworth and his cousin, the Reverend James Bostock, in 1811 at a cost said to be £25,000. On the death of John Haworth in 1831, it passed to his cousin Fanny Bostock. During her ownership of the hall, she brought legal actions and obtained injunctions against the North Staffordshire Railway (brought to Rudyard in 1850) to try to prevent their popularisation of the lake and reduce the influx of visitors...

    1. The History Eldon Hill quarry is in the Peak District National Park, Derbyshire, England, 4km south-west of Castleton. It is a 470-metre limestone hill of pure limestone resulting from squeezing and upfolding of geological forces to form a dome. On the northern limit of the carboniferous limestone in the Peak District and the name was first recorded in 1285 as “Elveden”, meaning 'Elves' hill'.
