  1. Loxley Chapel The Explore Last few minutes of daylight left after a long day in Sheffield with @Urbexbandoned. If you've looked at my last report you would've read that my camera died for no reason at the previous location so I gathered my teddies from the floor beside my cot and headed towards this little derp-hole, armed only with an iPhone 6 and a diminishing sense of humour. The local scrote-muffin cock-knocker youths have went to town on this place. House of God? Fuck that, lets smash the place up. Sleep tight everyone and rest assured that these little dicks are the future of the U.K. The History (Stolen as always) The Chapel was built in 1787 by the Rev Benjamin Greaves (the then curate of Bradfield) together with some of his associates. Shortly after its completion consecration was refused because builders would, for some unknown reason, not install an east-facing window. It was eventually sold at auction for the princely sum of £315 and so became an independent chapel. A decade later it started performing baptisms in 1799 and the first officer of the Titanic, Henry Tingle Wilde was apparently christened here. Notably a significant number of the 240 dead from the Great Sheffield Flood of 1864 are buried in the cemetery. This includes members the Armitage family, who tragically lost 12 of their number, including five children. Here's what the chapel looked like in the later 1800's The Pictures 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Extract from a local rag.. “I can’t help but feel that this is a shocking state of affairs being a microcosm of much which is wrong with our society. Here lay our dead. Sheffield people laid to rest in originally quite beautiful surroundings but now ignored and forgotten. How did this come about?” 7. 8. 9. 10.

  2. My second underground explore after visiting Z-Rocket earlier that morning. Very steep entrance with not much to hang onto but has some good pieces still in it. Some history: This deep shelter sunk into the chalk above Langdon Bay just to the east of Dover had two entrances about a hundred yards apart in a bank by a rough track well back from the cliff edge (the cutting for the railway line that used to run down to Dover Harbour many years ago). There are no signs of the entrances today. The roofs/walls were the usual galvanized wriggley sheet metal, but with quite a lot of brick work. In one section where the chalk was exposed an inscription, 'M. Tutt Dec 1944', had been cut quite deeply into the chalk. The steps leading out of the secondary (eastern) entrance were largely missing leaving a steeply sloping chalk floor leading back to the surface which was back filled in 1979.
  3. Found a hole in the ground in Harlow!! Local rumors say that there was a Cold War bunker under the town and there is even a small mention on Subbrit "As well as county and county borough controls, counties could establish county sub-controls as a level between the districts and county to assist in the life saving operations and to provide communications. In this way Essex that formed part of Sub Region 4.2 with its SRC at the old Kelvedon Hatch bunker (the other SRCs for Eastern Region were at Hertford and Bawburgh) had its County Control in Chelmsford. Below this were 4 county sub controls at Mistley, Chelmsford, Billericay and Harlow each of which linked between 6 and 10 urban and rural districts" Could this be an emergency exit from the bunker?? Who knows???
  4. I did this last year and have wanted to go back and do the others; this is one of twenty or so drainage tunnels that take water away from the main Dover to Folkestone railway line. Back to June 2012…after the epic let down of not hitting up the asylum today we decided to spend our hard earnt Saturday morning off underground… Now for those of you that do not live in this drought zone they call Kent let me assure you that it isn’t! The amount of water flowing freely out to sea from these drains is staggering! The water companies should be ashamed of themselves! But anyway..I digress..turned out that a mixture of water, clay and chalk makes one of the strongest stickiest substances on earth! ..I kid you not..nearly lost me wellies every other step..it’s evil stuff ! So, whilst attempting not to sink so far into this primeval ooze that we’d be back in the land of dinosaurs, slip on the metal sectioning or even worse lose my camera we did manage to get a few shots.. It was wet down there…very wet..trying to light the shot keep water off the camera and lens was hard..hope you enjoy the results.. Oh really!... The start of the ooze! running water..sticky mud..looks easy..it was hell! Where we bothered by the ruptured tunnel skin..no of course not ! It was a very long tunnel... The water pouring out of those pipes was fast and furious ! The concrete section has the railway line running right above it...when a train goes over your head it's the most eerie feeling ! What was that creaking sound... And some more mud! Will be heading back to explore the others now that the sun has started to shine ! If anyone wants to tag along give me a shout..
  5. Done on my Jack had just got a new camera and wanted to learn how to use it, was down there for near on 3 hours in total !, plus another local site off my "to-do" list This deep shelter sunk into the chalk above Langdon Bay just to the east of Dover had two entrances about a hundred yards apart in a bank by a rough track well back from the cliff edge (the cutting for the railway line that used to run down to Dover Harbour many years ago). There are no signs of the entrances today. The roofs/walls were the usual galvanized wriggley sheet metal, but with quite a lot of brick work. In one section where the chalk was exposed an inscription, 'M. Tutt Dec 1944', had been cut quite deeply into the chalk. The steps leading out of the secondary (eastern) entrance were largely missing leaving a steeply sloping chalk floor leading back to the surface which was back filled in 1979, Right enough history on with some pics. Some "Original Graffiti" Ventilation plant This is quite a good example compared to many of the others Ive visited and while its been got at a bit its no where near as bad as the majority
  6. Located at Langdon Hole, in East Langdon, lays an air raid shelter deep underground. I can’t find too much information on this place but it is believed it was formerly known as Dumpy ‘B’ and used as a communications shelter during WW2. Also located in Dover was Longhill shelter which was formerly known as dumpy ‘A’. These two shelters were of an almost identical layout. Langdon hole Deep shelter originally had two entrances. One was steel lined and the other was un-lined chalk. After the WW2 there was no further need for the shelter and it was capped off with the original entrances destroyed. Over the years the top soil has caused a small opening to appear at one of the original entrances meaning that the rather hidden entrance is now accessible and this almost forgotten shelter has regular visits from historians and explorers. I had visited this shelter many times over the last couple of years but in my most recent visit I finally photographed the place. Visited with Urban Junkie, Shadow, Maniac, Frosty, Skydiver, Cave Zombie and Scrimshady. Originally there would have been a staircase entering the tunnel but over the years it has collapsed leaving a steep slope at the entrance The second entrance is now sealed. This is the un-lined/secondary entrance At the bottom of the main entrance is a small room and spur leading to the main complex The shelter consists of two parallel tunnels with a spur at each corner. Thanks for looking
  7. ..........oi oi, this is my 1st post EVER sooooooooooo try not ta laugh too much if it goes wrong (that means you fluff ha ha ha X X X ) most of these picz were taken with UnfairytailUrbex Gmaps.zipDH000007.jpg[/attachment:1j7xxns4]CNV00132.JPG[/attachment:1j7xxns4]CNV00120.JPG[/attachment:1j7xxns4]CNV00163.JPG[/attachment:1j7xxns4]CNV00181.JPG[/attachment:1j7xxns4]..........enjoy
  8. Of all my years exploring Dover, this is one place that kept evading me, mainly because I didn't know where the entrance was! Oh I've spent many hours wondering around the area trying to find it! Anyhow, Frosty and co kindly showed me where it was the other night (cheers dude!) , so I was able to finally take some photos of it! Langdon hole was an underground communication centre during WWII. Sometimes referred to as Dumpy B, purely because it acted in the same role, although it bears little resemblance to the Dumpy level of Dover Castle. Entrance to this place is interesting, as all the steps are missing, so you have a very steep slope to contend with on entry - not one to do on a wet day! Anyhow, here are a few photos. This is the entrance way looking back up from the bottom. With lots of old metal containers at the bottom Which leads through this walkway into the rest of the complex Which looks like this There's an un-lined tunnel which leads to another entrance, now blocked Maniac.
