  3. Evening:D The Explore: Found myself up north this weekend, and the first place we visited was TG Green. After fighting through some brambles we found ourselves inside - it was a relativity relaxed explore overall, just wondering round at our leisure until we saw a jeep go by.. upstairs in the canteen, we saw it drive past again. security doing a patrol we thought? nope.. just a guy checking some animal traps, thankfully he was off as soon as he'd done that, and we slipped out the way we'd came with no bother at all. Loved this explore, had some amazing company and got some shots I'm reasonable happy with. History: Cornish Kitchen Ware was first produced in 1926 by T.G.Green & Co in Church Gresley, Derbyshire, a county famed for its pottery. The range’s special characteristic came from the lathe-turning process, which cut clean bands through its beautiful blue slip to show the white clay beneath. It was apparently this that inspired the name, since it reminded one T.G.Green & Co. employee of the clear blues and white-tipped waves of Cornwall. The range of kitchen and table ware, from the hooped plates to the iconic storage jars, was an immediate success and remained popular from then on. This inspired T.G.Green & Co. to produce more colours of Cornishware, and more ranges, including the spotted Domino Ware and the cream and green Streamline Ware. In the 1960s, Cornishware was updated by a young designer called Judith Onions. It says much for her skill and sensitivity that this restyled range was embraced as warmly as the originals had been. Over the past 20 years, the range has become highly prized by collectors, with the sighting of both rare original designs and Onions classics the subject of much excitement – and ever-increasing prices. The story was not so happy for T.G.Green & Co. itself, however. It had become increasingly difficult for the Victorian pottery in Derbyshire to compete in the modern age and, after a series of owners had done their best since the Green family sold it in 1964, it finally closed in 2007. Now, my flickr finally decided to work, so I can actually show y'all some pictures.. Now, I must apologies for the quality of this - it's the only external I got, and it's from an iPhone, oops! I was sitting on a ledge, ready to drop out of the site and head home when I turned around and took one last look, camera was already packed away and I didn't want to leave without a memory of the exterior, so this will have to do!
  4. After a bit of a lurk in the Jungle School, we popped down the road for a Sunday afternoon saunter around another abandoned Belgian school... ...The Green School... ... Thanks for lookin' in...
  5. UK Green House (April 2014)

    It's hard to believe that this was the original headquarters of what is now part of a global conglomerate. The premises have been closed for about 10 years. Once I negotiated the wing-and-a-prayer access involving my improvised ladder it was a nice calming mooch due to the green walls everywhere! This is probably the first time this place has been reported, so I hope you have a nice relaxing and chilled view at the pics...

  7. Thomas Green came to Leeds from Carlton-on-Trent near Newark and founded the company in 1835. The company was originally located at 34 Lower Head Row (now Eastgate), Leeds, and specialised in all types of wirework, including wire weaving and galvanising. The Smithfield Foundry site in North Street was purchased in 1848 and the first buildings were erected in 1850. In 1863 a London office was opened, principally to serve the overseas trade. This was followed in 1881 by the opening of the “Surrey Works†in Blackfriars, London. Improvements in trade led to the opening of the “New Surrey Works†in 1902. Thomas Green also produced a range of steam road vehicles including fairground centre-engines, road tractors and agricultural tractors. Perhaps their most well known product in this range was the steamroller, which commenced in 1872 with a vertical boilered model for the Royal Gardens, windsor. Shortly afterward, in 1880, a convertible model (i.e. traction engine or road roller) was introduced. A conventional horizontal boilered model followed this in 1881. The range was developed to encompass the whole range of weights (3ton to 12ton) and styles (tandem roller, triple roller) which enabled them to become one of the market leaders, with around 300 machines supplied. With an eye on sports grounds, Greens introduced the first of a range of petrol engined rollers in 1905. The diesel engined DRM model in the 1930s, and lighter versions, the DRL and DRX, superseded these. In the 1960s, the “Workman†was designed together with a heavier model, the “Pacemaker.†This one is at my local cricket hut and hasnt been used for a very long time (ive never seen it running) and looks like a few parts have been stolen of it over the years

  10. Not really derelict, but it was a quality mooch!!! _________________________________________________ The General Cemetery of All Souls, Kensal Green, is one of England's oldest and most beautiful public burial grounds The plan for London's first garden cemetery was initiated by the barrister George Frederick Carden, who was inspired by a visit to Père-Lachaise in Paris in 1821. Alert both to the need for new burial grounds, and the commercial potential of the venture, Carden founded the General Cemetery Company in 1830, with influential supporters including Andrew Spottiswoode MP and the banker John Dean Paul of Rodburgh The cemetery was established by Act of Parliament which had its final reading in July 1832, during a cholera epidemic -- a coincidence that implicitly made the case for reform. The Bishop of London consecrated the first 48 acres in January 1833, and the first funeral was conducted a week later. From the funeral of HRH The Duke of Sussex in 1843 to that of his nephew HRH The Duke of Cambridge in 1904, Kensal Green was the most fashionable cemetery in England Its notable personalities include some 650 members of the titled nobility and over 550 individuals noted in the Dictionary of National Biography. Kensal Green is the resting place of the engineers Sir Marc Isambard Brunel and Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the mathematician Charles Babbage, and the novelists Wilkie Collins, Anthony Trollope and William Makepeace Thackeray; Lord Byron's wife, Oscar Wilde's mother, Charles Dickens' in-laws and Winston Churchill's daughter; a cross-dressing Army doctor and the surgeon who attended Nelson at Trafalgar; the creator of Pears' Soap, and the original WH Smith; the funambulist Blondin and the Savoyard George Grossmith; the first man to cross Australia from south to north, and the last man to fight a duel in England; the Duke's nephew who ruined the richest heiress of the day, and the English adventuress who became a French baronne disgraced by the accusation of murder. Kensal Green boasts some 140 Grade I, II* and II Listed buildings and monuments, including the magnificent Anglican Chapel (Top 2 pano's) The Cemetery is cared for by "The Friends of Kensal Green Cemetery" which is an independent registered charity
  11. My journey started this morning, I was awoken by the distinctive BUZZZZZ BUZZZZ BUZZZZ of my awful bloody alarm clock that I've owned for 100000 years and loathed every rude awakening. Particularly in this case because last night because of the time I went to be, I also realised that my train to Leicester was 30 mins before the first bus of the day. But with stupid amounts of emotional blackmailing good'ole mum to the rescue. She got up at 6am to take me to the train station, what a legened eh? Parents, not quite as bad as they make out they are haha. "We will shortly be arriving in Leicester...Leicester our next station call..." Had arranged to meet Goldie87 at Leics train station at 8.30 and get a lift the rest of the way, cheers mate. I owe you. Funny access to say the least, I should have let you lot carry on going in difficult ways instead of point out the obvious... Anyhow, I'm sick of typing so here are the pics History... http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q= ... arch&meta= Pics Flame Resistant Suit FTW!!! Inside a kiln Medical Room Do want!!!
