  1. I stumbled across this place and from images seen it looked quite promising. It has been on the Market at £ 2, 500 000.00 and later down to a bargain £ 1, 500 000.00. It has six bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and a selection of outbuildings including guest accommodation and stables. It comes with a swimming pool, squash court and 189 acres of land. It has been systematically vandalised and is now derelict and uninhabitable. It has also been removed from market. I arrived on site at 0700 on a very misty but sunny Saturday morn. Sadly the site is very disappointing - it is stripped to bare brick and there's breeze block and wood everywhere where remodelling has been carried out. I had really been looking forward to this but was ultimately disappointed. The mist added a lovely atmosphere and has enhanced some shots. I had several partridges for company during my visit - place was full of them.

  2. The History Guyzance mill was constructed in the early 19th century and was a water powered corn mill. It is grade 2 listed and there has been a mill on the site since 1336. It is a three storey stone structure on a rectangular plan of 34 feet by 20 feet. The Visit I was in the area for a 2 night road trip/break and this was one of the sites I had earmarked to go check out. The mill is structurally pretty sound and in fair shape. There is next to nothing left in there but three milling stones do remain. The Photos. Well these shots were taken with my newest acquisition - the diminutive Pentax Q. A camera who's sensor is smaller than a gnats left testicle... I think, phone cameras aside, this has the smallest sensor of any camera. Given this image quality should be pretty poor on paper/in theory. I also didn't help myself by not taking a tripod into the mill with me so was shooting hand held at very high ISO (which should guarantee noisy images) and hand held - which should result in not very sharp images as I do not have a very steady hand. Well without further ado here are the piccies. - 1 - - 2 - - 3 - - 4 - - 5 - - 6 - - 7 - - 8 - - 9 - - 10 - - thanks for looking _
  3. Evening peeps - the Judderman North East road trip continues. This was the 4th target on my list - I bring you Whittingham .... no not the asylum, the station. History: Opened on 5th September 1887, this extensive station was rather distant from the village after which it is named, being more than a mile to its east. Construction of the route received considerable support from Lord Ravensworth, a locallandowner, and the station was built very much for his benefit. Whittingham boasted the only island platform on the single track branch, creating one of two passing loops, the other being at Wooler. As well as its large main building, the site boasted a signal box and water column to the east as well as five sidings to the west serving a goods shed, goods platform, loading bay and coal drops - the latter also having a weighbridge. The substantial Station Master’s house sits close to the south-west corner of the platform, overlooked by a road-over-rail bridge. The passenger service was short-lived, ending on 22nd September 1930, but the goods facilities continued to welcome traffic until March 1953.Although the decorative cast iron canopy has long since lost its glass, the platform building adorned by it is now Grade II listed and awaiting restoration as a dwelling. Five adjacent railwaymen’s cottages are also undergoing refurbishment and will soon become holiday lets. The station has now been bought by a local Businessman who is turning it into a home for his wife and himself. - 1 - - 2 - - 3 - - 4 - - 5 - - 6 - - 7 - - 8 -
  4. Not an explore as such so if admin feel it has no place here fell free to remove it. Zero81 and I spotted this on our way to somewhere else and liked the look of it and were intrigued. It is situated in the private grounds of a posh boarding school for 8-13 year olds. Info from the schools website. Work began on 29 June 1883 and completed on 01 Oct 1884. The cost was £ 7980. The height of the tower is 161 feet and it has three lower floor rooms, a sewing room and a clock room. The clock is by J.B. Joyce of Whitchurch who still service it. The tower can be seen from six counties. Features include four mosaic clock faces, a sundial and a coat of arms. The clock tower is part of a private estate and is not open to visitors except on advertised open days. On with the piccies: - 1 - - 2 - - 3 - - 4 - - 5 - - 6 - - 7 - - 8 - - 9 - - 10 - - 11 - - 12 - - 13 - - Hope you like this as much as we did

  6. I have no idea what this factory did , what it was called or a darned thing about it to be honest. It is well and truly fubar'd but as you will know, dear readers, I quite like my sites fooked with almost no limit to the amount a place can be fooked and I'll still get something out of the place. It is also, as Mr Hunter commented, druggie central with only St. Cyprians in Liverpool and an old nurses quarters building in cheadle matching it for amount of needles at a site I have visited. I had company too...twice over. First time I had not been on site long when I heard at least three separate voices from below ... great I thought. I contemplated.. should I just carry on, should I GTFO to be on safe side. I decided on a half way house and started collapsing my tripod and started heading vaguely to my entry point ready to leave. I didn't rush and thought I'd see if they came within sight in which case I would have left .. I saw nothing so waited a little while longer before deciding "fuck it" and went to the furthest away part of the site and carried on. i did not see or hear them again. Then a while later a guy wandered in and started to walk straight towards me but on seeing me stopped dead in his tracks - I looked at him for around a second or two and then just ignored him and carried on...he turned and left. I was very lucky with the day - was a lovely day with a lovely quality of light. Enough waffle and on with the graphical representations. - 1 - - 2 - - 3 - - 4 - - 5 - Some pretty decent graf in here and lots of it - - 6 - - 7 - - 8 - - 9 - - 10 - - 11 - - 12 - - 13 - - 14 - - 15 - - 16 - - 17 - - 18 - - 19 - - 20 - - 21 - - 22 - - 23 - - 24 - - 25 - - I really rather like this place Thanks for looking
