    Default Taxal Lodge : Derbyshire : March 2012


    Thought I throw this at you all, was a lilttle while back now.

    Originally A massive residence for obviously a well heeled family, built in 1905 then later in it's life A kind of boarding school that closed it doors around 2005, it's future lies in limbo as plans to convert it into apartments were thrown out.

    Visited it seems by many a chav and chavette, shame really it would have been really nice a while back and the views it commands are quite fab. It's in quite a quiet overgrown place pretty tucked away.

    Splored with Sshhh.. , Luckypants and Mrs Luckypants on a rather nice sunny day.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++ACCESS++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++



    Despite the frequent bad elemental visits





    There are bits and bobs laying about



    but most things are just thrown about all over the place furniture and everything



    or the whole rooms emptied





    Not a fan of footie myself but I always liked a go on these, no one wants to play tho :( including me :)





    Only when he was Ziggy tho eh?







    Hello Luckypants



    an UXB but boiler as opposed to bomb...theres not too much happening here I have to create some drama



    Look a clutch of ACORNS what a waste Electrons, BBC model 'B's and for the richest of kids the fabled Archimedes with its legendary 32 bit RISC processor



    I couldn't bear to leave em like that so....



    and like this complete with hi tech monitor..sorted



    not the best of splores but certanly in a nice enough place and one can always use the backdrop of dereliction :D



    Maybe not a plan A but maybe a plan b for the Northerners on the way home if their TG potteries trips go askew

    Thanks for looking byeeees

    I don't recall seeing the computers (scratches head) ... didn't think I'd missed any rooms.

    I quite like this place...fooked as it is.
    Zero reports, zero participation and then a PM asking for info tends to offend - I delete such PM's so don't waste your time.
