  1. This development is about half an hour from my home in Sharm..never realised it was totally abandoned so only had a look round the outsides but I will return...bit of history for yous: A most ambitious hotel this..a former Five star hotel complex comprising of three hotels,Moon,Star and Sun.Raouf gifted this hotel to his american wife who managed and used her artistic touch to decorate the place.The complex comprised a dozen pools,a casino and cinemas,however,there seemed initially that the business was a success but bookings dropped off and eventually the Moon hotel closed followed by Star then the Sun..now,the beach lies abandoned with parasol umbrellas and sunbeds piled up near a beach bar and the entire complex is now abandoned..even the locals give it a wide berth for some strange reason. Only a few pics of interest so....this is the state of the beach No longer busy Pool bar with quite a view. This water ride ran between two hotels Pretty impressive pool Massage anyone? If nothing else,I have brought a few sunny pics to your shore!
  2. Former puppy farm that was often in the local news regarding poor living quarters,alleged mistreatment of dogs and the selling of dogs that often died after new owners took delivery of the young animals..the RSPCA were always closing down the business,but the owner John Lowe simply ignored them and carried on. On February 23rd 2014,Mr Lowe,who purchased Keepers Cottage in 1966,shot and killed his partner and then her daughter,who tried to flee and get help,but died just outside the cottage.Police arrived and arrested Mr Lowe who was found guilty of double murder later that year and jailed for life with a minimum tariff of 25 years so it is likely he will die in prison.From information on several estate agents websites,it seems the 6 acre estate has been sold but last year planning permission was refused for one plan to demolish the cottage and build 3 dwellings so as of January 2018,I have no idea what will happen.We arrived at dawn and immediately noticed red flashing cameras mounted firstly at the gated entrance then further down the track mounted on a telegraph pole and one fixed on the cottage all flashing busily.We were considering retreating however we decided to skirt round the outbuildings to escape the cameras if indeed that is what they are and not dummy alarms which I suspect they are...I have to say I found this explore both intriguing but disturbing at the same time and was glad to leave..I have not felt this way since exploring Cane Hill Asylum in 2008. My pics are only phone shots so please excuse.. Found this on Google Earth to show how haphazard this place is/was We arrive as the sun is filtering through the trees..this cottage sits within a six acre plot nicely hidden by the woods. The farm is surrounded by shanty type buildings largely held together with telegraph poles. Truly awful animal pens..I cannot imagine this was any better before the old man`s conviction. We skirt round the rear of the house avoiding the cameras Amphitheatre style seating/steps. Living room..very surprised to see that this fire place didnt seem to have been used for open fires. View from the master bedroom. And the enormous conservatory built round two elevations. I am glad I saw all this but upon exiting the house,some strange bleeping noise started so it was our excuse to leave!
  3. Its retro alright!!..can anyone spot the Klempner in this pic of the First Chiseldon Cubs group taken in one of the huts around early 1969...first prize is a big kiss Its all yours
  4. This house seemed to come on the urbex scene then vanish.I was asked along on a visit here early March 2017.It was indeed a very interesting explore due the massive content of personal affects left behind as you will see.I understand the house was built 1865 and in the last few decades was converted into four flats.Each flat had a piano and we counted at least six pianos throughout! The house belonged to Doctor Annette Drummond-Rees and I reckoned she was a shopaholic as all over this house in the last few years was bags of china ornaments that was purchased from charity shops,but the thing that surprised me was it appeared she simply put the bag on the stairs unopened never to be looked at again.Lets show you what I mean... The House Part of the conversion has already started falling down A few old cars have been left to rot In the hallway we see the first of many many places to sit The good Doctors lounge or at least one of them! One of six pianos Another lounge Heading upstairs now The sight that greeted us on the landing..flats 2 and three with spare pianos ..more pianos later Those shopping bags containing ornaments from charity shops were strewn on every stair One of my fellow explorers got this to play the Dambusters record..a most surreal thing to hear from a distance I loved this arched window atop of the stairs Flat 2`s lounge..yes another piano! Flat 2 bedroom Dr Fox Flat 3 lounge..yep,complete with piano We are now in the attic rooms now Attic bedroom..looked pretty comfortable And lastly,some essential bedtime reading.. Well that was Mountfield House folks,if you want a more concise walk through,the rest can be seen yer below https://klempner69.smugmug.com/Mountfield-House-2017/

  16. This is one for any new explorers in the area who might be starting out and want an easy one.Selena House is or was a nursing home.I have little real history on it but by the looks of it,I reckon it was originally a detached house in grounds that was added to over time.In 2012 however,an inspection by the council found some serious quality issues regarding food,health and general hygiene.Before any action could be taken,the owner decided to hand in his license and close the home.It quickly fell into disrepair with the final straw coming in the shape of a fire several years ago that destroyed about a third of it.There are though still a few rooms worth looking at namely the kitchen,the lounge and many residents rooms plus an interesting attic.Anyhow,I wont bore you any more..as I said,this one is really for noobs only... The frontage is totally boring Smoke damaged residents room In the attic,this seemed to be a den of sorts,and there are stacks of paperwork left up there too. Dining Room Wild Sage bath And another residents room in better condition. And finally that kitchen Like I said,this really is a fetid place so would suite a noob..beware also when upstairs,as it is very very dangerous where the fire took hold
  17. I really enjoyed reading your report and pic 11 is damn good.Well done on your effort
  18. That is a glorious place and you captured it so well.
