  1. Yeah, sorry for the age of my post's not been out of much lately just thought they would bring something different to the forum @silverainbow, still there as far as I know, what with there being no money around for doing anything with it.
  2. Right people, it's back to school for you lot! luckily for the guy's it's a girls school!! The school was designed by J. M. Bottomley and G. T. Wellburn of Leeds and built in 1910. It was built in an Edwardian Baroque style, in an English cross bond utilising red brick and with white faience dressings. In 1971 the school amalgamated with Doncaster Grammar School and was renamed Hall Cross Comprehensive. The building here is the Waterdale location.

  4. UK Proteus Training Camp Feb 2009

    Thanks guy's, yeah not sure what the cammo room was about
  5. The 21-hectare site was used by the Ministry of Defence as an Army training camp until October 2004 when it became surplus to requirements. The site had accommodated up to 1,000 personnel at its peak along with tanks, mechanized vehicles and a small arms firing range. From the early 1940's it was used by the British and American armed forces and a significant number of barrack buildings, vehicle stores and other structures remain on the site.

  6. UK Walton Mill July 2009

    Walton Mill also known as 'Bump' Mill was built in the 1770's by partners Hewitt (a linen and woollen draper) and Bunting (a mercer and draper and later a tallow chandler. "Bump" refers to cheap cotton that was manufactured there in the 1790's. I read somewhere, that dressings for the Crimea War were manufactured here.
  7. We loved this place and your shots make it look great.
  8. Ok peep's moving away from the schools for a while, we had a mooch around this place and to say it was dirty would be an understatement An iron foundry in North Hykeham, with a production capacity of approximately 80,000 tonnes of castings annually, they manufactured high quality iron casting components in nodular and grey iron for the international automotive, tractor and construction machinery industries. It closed in 2007
