    All will be apparent if one looks up the Water Management scheme for the area. At one time the sluice gates were part of the flood prevention set up for the area and needed constant access - H & S demanded easy and safe access. My old job took me onto many similar structures over the years!

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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
