  13. History Due to the aircraft stationed at RAF Coningsby there was an external bomb dump, in order to Reduce the quantities of explosives stored and the number of personnel exposed to risk, along with separating explosive processing from storage were the major lessons adopted in what I believe was the reason for a bomb dump further away than normal. Historically I couldn't find much on this place. I did find out about an accident that occurred there in 1971 though. An accident which killed 2 armourers while they were preparing 68mm SNEB Rockets. Without warning, one initiated in the process building they were working in. There was an unexplained electrostatic discharge causing the rocket motor to fire. The Explore Well this is pretty close for me, literally just down the road. I have been here before. Obviously having a connection to the RAF held some interest here. I explored with @hamtagger as per We had a relatively leisurely stroll around. As far as bomb dumps go it was 'normal' in layout and relatively huge. Admin buildings scattered the front section of the site past the picket post and the remainder were process buildings or prep buildings. We ventured in to one and noticed that we hadn't seen it before, on any reports or throughout social media but it was what was inside that caught my attention. Guns & not the handheld sort. I have had to do a bit of research on this because I wasn't aware that firstly they were Royal Navy guns & secondly what type of gun they were. It turns out that there was 2 types, the first was a GCM-A03 twin barrelled Oerlikon. This had a firing seat where someone could sit, almost like a little cabin. It was a bloody tight squeeze as well and I am tiny! Apparently capable of firing 650 rounds a minute. The second which there were 2 of didn't have a firing seat so it was fired by someone either standing up and shooting it or controlled electronically. The first fired 30mm rounds while the second fired 35mm rounds. Both would have been mounted on a ship & both had the barrels removed. Next to this we also found what we believe to be a small communication suite. I have never seen one before and may never do again but it was cosy and compact! We had more or less finished when we spotted 2 blokes part literally right outside & jump over the front gate, they seemed to follow us to the rear side of the site. No camera's or owt then just disappeared. Anyway, enough of my waffle & on to the pics This is where they would have serviced Skyflash & Sidewinder missiles 1 2 This is the communication suite 3 4 The GCM-A03 twin cannon Oerlikon 5 6 7 8 This is it in action (Not my photo, obviously) 9 This was the other gun, a GCM-A01 (I believe, could be wrong) 10 The rest of the site 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 A little mention of tornado here, which became stationed at Coningsby during the Gulf War 18 Mercury Thallium is found in AIM-9 sidewinder missiles 19 20 21 thanks for looking!

  22. History Malsis School located at a mansion known as Malsis Hall in the village of Crosshills, in North Yorkshire, England, was a co-educational independent pre-prep and preparatory school for pupils aged three to 13 years. The school was founded in 1920 and closed due to falling pupil numbers in 2014. Facilities at the school included 3 km mountain bike trail, 9-hole golf course, swimming pool, all weather pitch, rifle range and 40 acres of grounds. The school closed on 10 December 2014, when the final assembly started at 11 am and concluded at 1 pm. The next day the school trust went into administration with Ernst & Young of Leeds. The school's assets were auctioned off and the land and building sold by Eddisons, and having fully paid off its debts it passed into creditors voluntary liquidation and the company was finally dissolved on 4 August 2017. In January 2015, The Old Malsis Association (OMA) was formed to represent the views of school alumni from down the years. Malsis Hall and its grounds have been sold to Seddon Construction, which plans to build 100 new homes on the site and transform the former school building into a specialist rehabilitation centre - subject to planning permission being granted. Proprietors Jonathan and Jamie Seddon were both former Malsis pupils in the 1980s. Explore Me & @hamtagger had seen this pop up online a few times & ventured over to yourkshire. We met @Moz88 while in the grounds before we even got in and was nice to explore with someone new. A rather ungraceful entry by all 3 of us added comedy to the explore. This place was as interesting as it's history. Literally everywhere you looked there was something ornate or some thing that caught our eye. Probably one of the nicest places I have visited. The tower had been unused for some time with no steps up to the top. The place wasn't in bad condition at all. With the main mansion house being where the interesting stuff was the back end of the school which was the newer part did hold some nice bits to see. Some of it was quite sad with pictures of the girls and boys still littering the tables and art/french work adorning the walls. I loved all of the ornamental ceilings & architecture, the pediments outside the headmasters office & main building were very 'stately home'. Anyway on to the pics. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 Thanks for looking!
