    Default Houghton Grange - ReVisit


    The Houghton Poultry Research Station at Houghton, Cambridgeshire was established in 1948. Houghton became the Institute for Animal Health, being funded by BBSRC. Houghton closed in 1992.

    So having some spare time on our hands Rubex and I showed a couple of others a quick look round the Grange. Not much has changed, a bit more vandalism with more parts getting smashed up. Was nice to see this old place again.

    On with the photos

    The manor with its side labs





    The labs to the left of the manor





    One of the many labs





    A house on site





    The stairs from the field site



    Lab X




    Thanks for looking

    Lab X has to be the best bit. Thoroughly odd place and odd vibe. Well captured!
