    Very nice. Just love those gold coloured art-deco pieces. It could be saved.

    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 Don’t 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.

    ** This explore was done before the Coronavirus Lockdown took effect ** History; Goldcrest Business Park has been home to a number of different businesses over the years; Whitminster International, Redler Limited, Klenzeen Limited and, most recently, the Stroud Metal Company. From what I can work out, the whole place has been empty for a number of years with the exception of the Stroud Metal Company, who only moved out back in July 2019. The site appears to be split into different...

    Ahhhh if only I wasn't so mechanically naive! Haha. Weirdly, UrbexDevil, I can't seem to view your photos? Have they moved from your image hosting site or anything, or is the issue my end? I'd love to see your photos as a comparison to mine. Glad you had a good day bud. Are you local to the area?

    That bomb holder box would make a perfect toolbox. Your first shot I thought there was dust on your lens but there's holes in the roof and the light is shining through. This place even comes with a gun cleaning kit.

    Fluffy covered this on another thread but didn't give much details about the limo. Aha, its a Lincoln. The seats are still in good condition. But missing is the instrument panel and a steering wheel. The lever where the steering wheel should be tells me it has an automatic transmission. Connect a battery, test for spark and see if the engine will turn over.

    Really cant tell you much about this place other than the main house is still occupied & this was obviously a water mill at some time. Not sure what it was used for, there are no mill wheels left, just a lot of pulley wheels etc. Any history on this one appreciated. I assume this was originally the waterway but there is no sign of a wheel now

    Sorry to jump on the bandwagon @Fluffy 😂 Seeing a recent report on this place and searching for something to do during the corona times, this seemed an ideal place to isolate away from the world and enjoy the urbex world. I have to say, I have never come across a place full of so much stuff! Unfortunately it does appear that kids have already been in and smashed everything they could get their hands on leaving the floor completely covered in some areas. A great explore none the less,...

    A revisit and the third time lucky, this time without running out of battery or loosing daylight, in fact it couldn’t have been better weather for it. I managed to do the canteen side of Bletchley a good 5 years ago and had a failed visit after my camera battery died on this side somewhere between then and now. Luck turned this time and managed to get into both block D and G which was amazing to see so much old equipment still sitting around. History is well known but here’s a "short"...
