  1. Its looking great still, really nice photos!
  2. Its been a long time since I posted a report, so here is my first of 2017. I hope you're all doing well. History (wiki) It was a residence of members of the princely dynasty of the Welsh kingdom of Powys and one of the taî'r uchelwyr (houses of the gentry) in late medieval Wales. It subsequently came into the possession of the Ormsby-Gore family (Lord Harlech). Its English correspondent is sometimes given as Porkington. A manuscript known to have been in the possession of Brogyntyn in 1574 was a copy of the Hanes Gruf(f)udd ab Cynan. The house itself is of brick dating from circa 1730 refaced and much added to between 1813–20 by the architect Benjamin Gummow.[3] It is noted for a portico of four giant unfluted Ionic columns with scrolls and pediment. Outside can be seen an arch with 2 pairs of unfluted Ionic columns. In the entrance hall survives an elaborately carved fireplace dated 1617. Brogyntyn Hall and its 1,445-acre estate, was sold by the 6th and present Baron Harlech in 2001 for less than £5m to a local developer, who divided up the estate, and investigated the potential for a retirement community development in and around the Hall.[4][5] However, the Hall and 234 acres went up for sale for £5m in December 2013.[6]

  7. UK Teapot Cottage (March 2016)

    I Really like your editing and framing. Looks like a cute little cottage.
  8. Im guessing you mean the Orphanage, I thought you meant the Seminary. My bad. Trespass to your hearts content, I do. I just wouldn't want you to get caught by the security at the seminary, tooled up. We're a community and we should look out for each other. And i would be more than willing to go to the orphanage with you.
  9. Im local to st joes and have been there quite a bit. It would be next to impossible to get in there in its current state without going equipped, which i do not condone or recommend.

  14. Its that time of year again, where real life gets in the way of exploring. Luckily I managed to squeeze one in with my scouse explorer friend before my car temporarily packed in. Sandwiched between work parties and seasonal sessions I made the trek to RAF Church Fenton not really knowing what to expect. With just a few images in my head of what I thought was a big grand entrance hall and turned out to be the mess hall. The location itself wasnt worth the drive but the company was and I had a good day. History Opened in 1937, it saw the peak of its activity during the years of the Second World War, when it served within the defence network of fighter bases of the RAF providing protection for the Leeds, Bradford, Sheffield and Humberside industrial regions. During September 1940 it became home to the first RAF "Eagle squadron" of American volunteers being No. 71 Squadron RAF initially with the Brewster Buffalo I for one month before changing to the Hawker Hurricane I. The airfield was also home to both the first all-Canadian and all-Polish squadrons, with No. 242 Squadron RAF for the Canadians and No. 306 Squadron RAF for the Polish. As technologies evolved, the first night fighter Operational Training Unit (No. 54 OTU) was formed at Church Fenton in 1940 and stayed until 1942. Some of the squadrons stationed there flew the famous de Havilland Mosquito. On 25 March 2013 it was announced that Church Fenton would close by the end of 2013. The units would be relocated to RAF Linton on Ouse by 31 December 2013.[36] By 19 December 2013, all units had relocated and the airfield was closed. Some equipment will be relocated to RAF Topcliffe. MoD security continued to secure the site until disposal. A NOTAM was issued suspending the air traffic zone (ATZ) at the end of 2013.
