  1. Evening All, A post from me tonight of the gorgeous Springwell Quarry located close to home. I have probably visited this place 4-5 times now during different seasons so it's lovely to see it in the different conditions. All my visits start off as a lovely walk down the canal and a quick run up a steep grassy verge into the site. The places has sat decayed roughly for 10 years now, with the infamous giant pg monkey which hangs over the water just out of reach (no one knows how it got up there, I love the mystery!). A Brief History: There is virtually no information about this place as I browse on the internet, all I know it was definitely used as a gravel quarry, in particular chalk. There are some tunnels (which lead to a dead end) which I presume were used to dig out chalk from the land above. This site also has been known to be used in Doctor Who the 10th anniversary story 1972/1973. Thanks for looking! I appreciate any feedback. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
  2. Thank you for the warm welcome!
  3. Dear All, This is my first post on Oblivisionstate even though I have been a member on the Fb page for a while, I thought it was about time I uploaded my photographs on here! You will see that alot of my uploads will be in black and white as this is my preferred medium, with some editing. I thought I would begin with my visit to The Grove Air Raid Shelter back in november 2014. I have only included 3 images, as all to see were a series of tunnels. There were 6 entrances in total, which can be found via the grounds of a prestigious hotel, by this point alot of the entrances to the tunnels had been blocked up as you can see by the 3rd image, so there was abit of hunting to find one which hadn't been bricked up. The tunnels were relatively easy to find, I visited during night in the hope to catch some bats in these tunnels, unfortunately I didn't encounter any. All that was left in the tunnels were some broken benches and rubbish! I hope you enjoy my post and expect more from me coming soon! Some background: The London, Midland and Scottish (LMS) Railway, with some foresight one presumes, bought a large area of land near Watford along with it's now disused Manor House for use as their HQ in the event of a war, away from their current HQ in Euston Station. As events transpired, by Easter 1939 with the on going approach of WW2, the move had started in earnest, being known as Project X.
