  1. This place was the biggest surprise of my trip, far exceeding my expectations. It's weird how half the site is heavily decayed but the other half looks as if it was vacated yesterday, it's location on a busy road and on a live golf course has helped it remain very intact. Once we had negotiated the golf course and avoided the golfists wasting a lovely late afternoon we were in. I had just about got to the end of the buildings when my cameras batteries ran flat, luckily the only major thing I missed getting photos of was the outdoor swimming pool. The country club contained a large bowling alley, pool table room, dance hall and a huge theatre/sports hall with one of the largest stages I have personally ever seen, as well as the outdoor pool and a beautiful wood-panelled private office section at the front. Thanks for looking, more here https://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie427/albums/72157659757783092
  2. This was my 1st ever explore. Not sure what the history of the building is or anything unfortunately as it was my wife that suggested going here together (she is so romantic lol). I'm sure this has been done soooooo many times by anyone that lives in the area but I'm really pleased at the photos I got of this place (I took about 200 in total!). I've also done some really nice edits too
  3. Another bar destroyed by the ongoing feuds & politics engaged in by the big clubs on Ibiza. Looks like it re-opened 2004 http://www.ibiza-spotlight.com/night/reviews/2004/morgana_170704_i.htm blurb Morgana is a mix of chill-out gardens, VIP terraces and indoor dance club. Lavishly decorated both inside and out in Arabian style complete with comfy sofas under Moroccan tents, wrought iron furniture, lanterns and elaborate paving, no expense has been spared in creating the ultimate night time venue. I think it closed 2005 'cause I can't find anything on it after that & I visited in 2014. Any way enjoy the decor.........

  4. Visited this place back in Dec 2013 With West Park Hospital rapidly getting redeveloped this one is worth a few minutes if your passing. Couple of professional pool tables still left inside, and considering it was left abandoned around 2007 I'm surprised it's not a total wreck. Disturbingly a few signs of some paper being burnt, so hopefully the place doesn't go down that path. I'm Lucky management didn't refuse entry on this occasion
  5. Booked a table for four with live entertainment, turned out he was a fire breather and he had a little accident while practicing for the show If you like grunge then this is the place for you, in the middle floor your walking in about a inch (about 25mm to you youngsters) deep of white slime. http://www.flickr.com/photos/100221036@N06/sets/72157639261433284/ I know its late, but Happy New Year
  6. This place is local to me and Ive passed it up many a time due to it looking so completely trashed, until one rainy Saturday afternoon when our plans were completely ruined by the continuous down pour !. Work commenced on Snowdown Pit in 1908 and the first coal was brought to the surface on 19th November 1912, It was the deepest pit in Kent reaching a staggering 3083ft (940metres). In 1945 the workforce was 1876 staff, that was with 1523 sub surface and 353 above, The Colliery was closed in 1986 and the shafts were capped in 1988. A few interesting buildings still remain despite being incredibly trashed, the Working Mens Club being one of them. So on with my pics from the day Well, Hope you enjoyed the little snippet of History and the selection of Pics from the day, Worth dropping In if ever in the area, Its becoming progressively trashed by the day
  7. The first photograph is of women working at Vernon’s Pools in 1936. Football pools has started in 1923 when John Moores and two friends handed out 4000 coupons outside Old Trafford. Initially, the business was slow and John Moores bought out his two partners who had lost confidence in the loss-making enterprise. Moores quickly turned Littlewoods round and millions of working people began to spend a few pence each week in what was the only national gambling competition (at that time it was based on agents house-calling rather than by mail). Vernons followed in 1925 – making Liverpool the centre of an industry which employed thousands of women checking the weekly returns.Vernons closed around 1975. The Paradox night club opened around 1992 & closed around May 2002 for refurbishment,but never re- opened again. The majority of the building was demmo'd around 2007 but the listed art decco tower remains today but in a bad state,locals are calling for the tower to be knocked down,calling it "a eyesore",plans are in the pipeline for a shopping complex to built there... cash office Various rooms As a night club
  8. One from a couple of weeks back...trashed to high hell with some very dodgy floors but amazingly one dance studio survives with all it's mirrors intact! Cheers for looking...if you were brave enough!
  9. I was down in erith at the weekend, and always on the lookout for exploring stuff, and found a old working men's club, and a pub called the Royal alfred pub in manor rd, both boarded up, didn't venture in/or around as it's not the safest area to be in, but if anyone in area wants to have a look, this is a pic of pub before being closed below, and the working men's club looks a reasonably interesting building. http://pubshistory.com/KentPubs/Erith/RoyalAlfred.shtml
  10. Opened it 1927,the Former RAF flying corps club passed into the hands of the Americans who added the last modern bar called Jandys.The living areas were quite respectable and the ballroom held host to big name stars.Closing along with base in 1994,the building quickly suffered from the damp,so a decision was taken to remove all the timber floors to allow the air to keep things less moist.There is talk of still turning this building over to be used as a school,so we shall have to wait and see.I visited in October 2011. Jandys Bar Main Ballroom Quick look down the underground shelters Shelters turned store rooms First signs of floor removal Reception Very grand in its day,no doubt In the Kings Cliffes Rooms..no ladies I`m afraid On our way upstairs to the accommodation now..view out over the frontage En suite Dressing room No doubt,plush in its day Main Entrance Back down in the Ballroom now Kitchens And finally..77th American Maintenance Unit Loved this place very much
  11. Nortel acquired the Harlow laboratories, originally Standard Telecommunications Laboratories, in 1991 and continued to use the site for research and development in wireless telecommunication technologies. It was the site of Charles Kao's research in fibre optic communications. This is their employees sports and social club The Nortel Sports Club trophy cabinet, very similar to the Arsenal trophy cabinet due to the fact that they are both empty!!!
