    Default Houghton grange


    Houghton grange is a poultry research centre.opened in 1949 for testing on chickens and other poultry.and after looking around this place God knows what else was tested here.the site shut down in the eighties.and the site has been up for sale for quite a few years.the site is massive and situated over one hundred acres.there are labs everywhere.the place is in a lovely state of decay.with no vandalism at all what I could see.big thanks to rubex for showing me around her favourite local haunt.see her more in depth and fantastic report here

    https://www.derelictplaces.co.uk/main...h-station.html


    The main grange house which the research centre is built around.there are labs extended either side of the manor.



    We headed straight to lab x this place is fairly dark.well it's pitch black in most places.i have been a lot of places.but this place give me the strangest feeling yet.who knows what went on here.big solid doors.massive lab rooms.a bit much for chickens I think.

















    The ventilation room above lab x.this stretched a long way..



    It was time to hit some of the outside labs









    Some large freezer.i wonder what was stored in here









    A sink especially for mr smiler :)



    A very derpy sink.







    It was to cross from the main site to the the sub site over the way.this was the only place I saw graffiti.it was also the most decayed of the site too.maybe because of its isolation from the main site

    A ventilation system in the main building.i guess this stretched across the labs situated here









    One of the main derpy buildings















    An incinerator which was really nice.rubex really likes this one



    Back over to the main site.there are about six of these labs.i liked the colours in this one..



    Rubex found this skull in the grass.god knows what poor animal it is.and if it's one originally from the labs



    These buildings are situated near the main grange..I wonder if they might have been teaching rooms and maintenance rooms.as one was a garage with pit and work benches







    Luckily the kitchens were wide open.





    I managed to gain acsess to the lab block adjoining the grange after seeing a group of youths going in so I followed them in.this bit was in a bad state of decay too.









    It was now time to leave because after going in the labs we were in full view of the cameras.and I did not fancy getting nabbed by secca this late in the day.i have wanted to see the grange for a while now properly and it exceeded all my expectations.and is a top explore.
