  9. UK St Michaels graveyard - Cambusnethan - 2014

    Hi everyone...again, thanks for taking the time to comment on my thread. When i stumbled accross this place i couldnt believe that it has just been left by the council to be vandalised and ruined! absolutley disgusting!! Thanks again
  10. Totally stumbled upon this place... if you hadnt stumbled across it or lived in the very close vicinity, then you would definetley not know this place was here. totally random location for a cemetery! In the middle of a field, surrounded by highland cows! Such a shame as the local "neds" clearly use this as a place to light fires when its cold, or just to sit, drink and wreck some gravestones!! anyways.... Rant over! haha A little history..... The old church of Cambusnethan stood in a most romantic spot at the southwest point of the whole parish, very near the river Clyde. It had certainly been built there for the accommodation of the Baron of Cambusnethan, so near his mansion house, and probably at his sole expense, there being no other heritor in the parish then but himself. The date of its erection is unknown but it was long before the barony was separated, and long before Thomas Lord Somerville gave to Lord Yester his first interest in the parish. It had a choir, and from the remains of it still visible, must have been a much more magnificent structure than the present one. It was, however, inconveniently situated for the parish at large, many of the parishioners, particularly those beyond Redmyre, having to travel from six to twelve miles to attend it. St Michael's Graveyard is the remains of Cambusnethan Parish Church, founded in St Nethan in the 8th Century. It is a few miles away from Cambusnethan Priory (which I did my first report on). The Mausoleum that is situated here was built for Robert Montgomerie Lord Belhaven and Stenton, Baron Hamilton of Wishaw KT. He was laid to rest here in 1868. His wife, Lady Belhaven, was also buried here in 1873. Probably David Rhind of Edinburgh, 1869. 3-stage, rectangular-plan, tall Roman style, sarcophagus mausoleum, aligned E-W. Segmental pediment enclosing deeply carved arms to coffered barrel-vaulted, fish-scale tiled roof. Polished ashlar yellow sandstone. Tall pedestal and roll-moulded plinth, plain rectangular 2nd stage, full Corinthian order entablature with husk garlands to frieze. The building was listed in June 1982, category B. Have no idea how a bike came to be here but never left...... can you picture death?? Wreckage...
  11. St Peters Ceminary in Cardross , Scotland. We made the daft mistake of going late in a summers afternoon...and before we knew, we were in the middle of no where...inside this old ceminary...I found this place pretty creepy, and felt like we were being constantly watched!! A little history..... Following a fire in 1946 at St. Peter's Seminary in the Glasgow suburb of Bearsden, a new home was needed for the seminary. Discussions began with Gillespie, Kidd & Coia in 1953, but the plans for a new college in the village of Cardross were not finalised until 1961, when building began. It is one of only 42 post-war buildings in Scotland to be listed at Category A, the highest level of protection for a building of "special architectural or historic interest". It has been abandoned since the end of the 1980s, and is currently in a ruinous state. Despite a number of proposals for reuse or renovation of the building, its future remains insecure. It was nice and bright outside when we entered.... Graffiti my soul..... Charred..... Entrance to hell..... Who turned the lights off.....? All we want is light again.....
  12. Hi all.. Thanks for your comments so far on this... appreciate it... I am going to go back next week hopefully, and try and get inside! Will keep you all posted...
  13. Hi Everyone Thanks for all of your comments on this, its very much appreciated.. This was my first proper explore that i got inside of , so things can only get better huh!? Looking for my next location already.. Thanks again everyone Urbanex
  14. Well...here it is...my second explore...2 derelict victorian mansions, side by side. these are empty due to subsidence from coal mining. I was able to get inside one, although there wasnt much to see, was great for me all the same! Not much history on these either, but i did find this Drumchapel Village developed on the South East edge of the Garscadden Estate 1870 when coalmining began in the vicinity It was the decline of industry and the opening of the station in 1891,that stimulated the building of a dozen or so middle class villas in the Drumchapel and Garscadden Roads. A church was built in 1901 (replaced after the influx of worshippers from the adjacent Knightswood) then a school in 1905. THE MANSIONS GROUND DEBRIS LETS GO INSIDE VICTORIAN CRAFTSMANSHIP REVEALED GROUND FLOOR THE MUSIC ROOM KITCHEN CARDS.... LETS GO UPSTAIRS.... ODDS AND ENDS...
