  1. This explore was one that I had wanted to do for a long time... Not for the quality of images, as I knew it would be dark... But just so I could say I had done it. So a army of us.. About 10 if I remember right, scoured the perimeter looking for access.. In the process of doing this, we bumped into 2 on site security huts and plenty of CCTV and PIR. We found a easy way in (well except the person who could not climb a 6ft fence) My initial plan was for some star trails in the roller coaster, but by the time we had dragged mr I cant climb over the 2 fence's it had started to cloud over. The group split up and we had a little snout around.. I stayed down by one of the coasters and took some photos, but on hearing some vehicle movement and lights popping on we decided to make a move and go check out some other locations up the coast. Even this turned out to be fun and a good end to the night. Sorry about the shortage of photos, but we did not stay for 2 long and it was bloody cold. History (cheers wiki) The park was created by entrepreneur Joe Larter in 1983 as a small American-themed family attraction, containing a miniature railway, Cine 180 and adventure playground. Yearly expansion brought the addition new attractions and general improvements. Controlling interest in the park was sold to RKF, a property development company, in the late 1980s. RKF built attractions including two Sea Life centres (Great Yarmouth & Hunstanton), a Ripley's Believe It or Not (Great Yarmouth seafront) and the 9-mile (14 km) Bure Valley Railway (in Aylsham). It started building a second Pleasurewood Hills style park in Cleethorpes. RKF went bankrupt in early 1991 and its attractions were sold. Some Pleasurewood management staff took control of The Bygone Village at Fleggburgh. Noel Edmonds converted the Haunted Theatre into Crinkley Bottom Castle in the mid-1990s. The park also featured appearances by Mr Blobby and Edmonds himself. The park continued in this vein until 1996-7, when it was bought by Leisure Great Britain, a caravan park operator. It owned the park until 2000, when Peter and Peggy Hadden, who had been connected with the park for many years, bought it. The name changed to New Pleasurewood Hills. In 2000 the park bought Magic Mouse. In 2004, Grévin & Cie, a French leisure group, purchased the site. The name reverted to its original form and in early 2005 the owners said they would spend £3 million on improvements. Changes included repainting and renaming a number of rides, but the first major investment was in the park's first inverting coaster, Wipeout (roller coaster), from the closed American Adventure. The old cars were scrapped and new ones bought from Walibi World. In 2009 the Mellow Yellow log flume was repainted and had a revamped entrance. It is now called Timber Falls. In 2010 the park put a StreetDance show in the Castle Theatre. In 2010 the park appointed a new manager. On 30 January 2011, it was announced that the park had been sold to a new company. H.I.G Capital France, in partnership with industry expert Laurent Bruloy, purchased seven leisure parks, including Pleasurewood Hills, from across Europe. The seven parks will benefit from a joint investment of around £1.7million over 5 years. This included the addition of 5 new attractions for the 2012 season and another 4 a year later.

  2. I got a tip from a friend at work about lots of cars in the woods, so I thought I would take a look. Now this place is not normal!! Next to the road is a small compound made up of corrugated iron, random fence panels, doors and bicycles!!!! Behind this compound are loads of cars, which did hold a few hidden gems. Loads of the cars were filled to the brim with stuff, books records tvs and lots of other junk. Sorry but they are all fisheye shots, I didn't feel safe here at all and wasn't going to mess about changing lenses. It was a maze to get through and I struggled to find a route around the site. Then I see a man walk straight through, I have no idea how he went through so easily, or how he never saw me. Sadly he eventually did and wasn't best pleased. Needless to say after his rant I was happy to be leaving by foot and not being dragged into the compound to be his meal for the next week!! I hope you enjoy. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 I would of loved to know what was under this, I couldn't lift it high enough and the wheels gave no clue either. And here is a few processed shots to finish off 9 10 11 12 MG
  3. This was qite a tricky place to find as it was another night time explore,we evetully found it after lots of useful texts from the ever helpful Obscurity,visited with wevsky & nitewalker. The history,not much available about this place. Crete Road reservoir is build into the hillside just off Crete Road West in Folkestone. It's victorian in contruction, being built about 1866, and consists of 2 arched rooms about 88 feet long each, which were used as massive water tanks to supply a drinks factory lower down on the hillside with a reliable supply of water for use in it's manufacturing process. This is part of Hills reservoir,can find any info about this place,got in by pure chance that the door had been left unlocked
  4. Right a visit has been long over due..crete road the facts as is written are these Construction work on the reservoir was completed on 2nd July 1866 and was used to supply a nearby soft drink factory in Folkestone with water. There are two tanks, each approximately 88ft long and lined with cement. The second thing we came Across behind a big steel door in near by woodlands ive done a quick scour of the net and i nelieve its called the hills reservoir..if im wrong please feel free to inform me..i believe its about 600 yeards long and i think was built around 1953 and atthe far end is valves and various pipes etc and a ladder leading into a room ,with a locked gate at top of ladder so thats as far as we got.. crete rd it self i didnt faff around with effects or playing around with lighting i was cold wet and glad i didnt slip 14 odd foot of the metal beam to my cameras death so i got some pics.. Visited with uncle B and nite walker Right crete road first whic ive been told and now realise would have been so much nicer during the day to find and explore Not a huge amount of pics you can get from inside this place unless you have the time to play with some different coloured lighting or maybe play with some things that burn which funnily enuff i didnt bring... Right onto the Hills reservoir or at least the tunnel leading up to the pumping room which was locked tight!! Right not the most epic of adventures,but crete road has been in mind for a while and the second part behind the big door was a bonus..cheers to obs for the nod about said door..
