This was our last place of the day, it had been a long one and I still had a couple of hours at least to get home from here. all in all it was the best day xplore I have done so far, with 6 great locations with only one fail. The little cottage was down unmade roads in the middle of nowhere, lucky it was a hot day as if it had been raining or just wet we would have had quite a long walk as I would never of got the car down there. I wanted to call it nettle farm as they were surrounding it and I got stung so many times going in and out of the place. Not the best but still some nice features left. https://www.flickr.com/photos/cunningplan/sets/72157645607013163/ well that's it from this tour. I still have another 4 or 5 reports to post soon Thanks
After Cwm Coke we checked out a couple of possible new places one of which was well sealed and the other appeared to be currently occupied by workers (on a Sunday!) so we sacked them off for another day and started to head home via this factory which I had pinned for some time as something to look at at some point if I was in the area, but I thought it was long gone until I found a post about it on another forum from April this year. From other photos it looks like we missed a nice store room but other than that saw the lot, it's largely stripped, looking like planned demolition was abandoned, but a nice chilled wander. After closure it looked like parts of it were split into separate small units as we found some interesting remains in a few areas that obviously weren't from it's original purpose. Thanks for looking, more here https://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie427/sets/72157645021050720/
Nelly posted a topic in Hospitals & AsylumsOne of the most impressive things that I have ever seen. The size of the place and the sheer scale cannot be described, the corridors that stretch seemingly for miles and the surprises that await around every corner. The History Severalls Hospital was the second Essex County Asylum - opening in 1913 to relieve pressure from the Warley Asylum. Designed by F.Whithouse & W.H.Town, the site was continually added to between 1910 and 1935, and this is reflected in the different styles present. The asylum was situated on 300 acres of the Severalls estate, which was sold to the Essex County Council in 1904 and its doors were opened to patients in 1913; at its peak it housed over 2000 patients, both in main wards and the outlaying villas. Interestingly the chimney attached to the water tower was lowered by one third of its height during World War Two to prevent it being a hazard to crippled bombers landing at a nearby US airbase Happy New Year!!! Thanks for taking the time
