    Default Watch house Battery Plymouth


    havnt seen any pictures of this bit of The 'Watch house battery' before nor is there a great deal of info i can find on the net i even couldnt find the report and had to ask another urbex'er to help me out for the name (even tho i was kind of right but wrong ) thanks kernow



    but the building hasnt been chav'd like many of the other buildings near by and has now just gone under aload of updates in the security with huge metal gates being put into place...

    flash earth linky the cross hairs are the building i managed to get into...;)

    The building its self note the boarded up windows... all windows and doors now have this due to the failed children of todays world
    ]

    still with all the electrics in place and bussing away


    being that it was a place for schools (like summer school) they had there rules in place... shame i didnt take notice when i went to the mine ops over the other side of the cliff :)


    loads of dialing codes for the local and surrounding areas of Devon and Cornwall


    shower any one? (torch died at this point so it was kinda fun to take a picture whiles in pitch black!)


    even the sinks was still going strong!


    quick toilet break and i was ready again! (probs the best bogs ive seen in a while very clean!)


    doubt this is a old fire place from WW2... more of a recent add on to the building?


    few fans of this peely paint stuff so here you go!



    oh the flash is working ok


    The wall! this area is properly the best place to 'hear the sea and see the sound'

    that building has had access for a few weeks now, but with that nice big fence going up it wont be for much longer, did you find the dead rat that was in the toilet?
