  1. Italy Paragon Hotel

    Information about the Paragon is rare. The old 5-Star Grand Hotel closed in 2007 because of decreasing number of tourists visiting the small town somewhere in the nowhere of the Italian mountains. #1 DSC08077 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC08078 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC08074-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC08075-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC08079-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC08081 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC08082-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC08084 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC08085 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC08086 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC08087 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC08088 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC08089-Bearbeitet-2 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC08092 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC08095 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #16 DSC08097 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #17 DSC08099 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #18 DSC08101-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #19 DSC08103-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #20 DSC08106-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr
  2. Italy noms. On arrival here we began to doubt if we'd gain entry as it looked like things had changed around the perimeter of the building. Our original access wasn't looking possible, but persistence paid off and we got to see this gigantic place The main highlight of the hotel is the ballroom and there are also a couple of nicer rooms Around there too. I spent most of my time downstairs, didn't really bother to shoot the rest as I'd expected it to be repetitive and boring as most hotels are once above the lower floors. Anyway, photos: Cheers, SM
  3. This was another one of those explores for me that had fond memories attached to it, This place was most recently used as a Motor Museum which was closed back in 2006, In my child hood my Gran used to take me here from time to time the place still smels exactly as it did back then, funny how old oil lingers for ever !, History more than covered by Wevsky In his Report viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1959 Visited with Space Invader, Morgan, Obscurity & Vickie, So on with the Pics ! Good Explore this, Shame its all buttoned up tight again !
  4. visited with morgan ... the West Cliff Concert Hall, once the venue for top artists which included the Rolling Stones who played here in the early 1960’s. More recently it was the home of Ramsgate Motor Museum, Before the West Cliff Hall was constructed in 1914, the site was an Italian Garden, complete with a bandstand. To make room for the new hall, the Windmill Parade chalk was literally dug out by hand. If you look towards the cliff edge you’ll see some stone balustrades protruding onto the promenade. These marked the entrance to underground public toilets which still exist below the asphalt.Across the road is the Churchill Tavern. Formerly this was the site of the Isabella or Kent baths which were built in 1817. In 1862 new baths were built in the cliff face across the road and were known as Royal Paragon Baths. All remaining signs of the Paragon Baths disappeared following a cliff collapse... on with the pics... Royal paragon baths ... Thanks for looking
  5. I first did this with obscurity about a year ago and decided i was never going to go back!! but....... i forgot my camera so i had to !! Visited again a little while back with frosty. After rigging up the abseiling equipment and checking our gear, making sure i had my camera, we desended into the entrance!! There isnt alot of info on this place but it almost certainly would of been used as a shelter during the war, but going by the seperate rooms with chalk cut seats and the fact its on 3 levels i dont think this would of been its intended purpose. It isnt very big and only had one room on the middle and lower floors but was still quite an exciting explore. Once inside we trudged though a couple of inches of bird crap and pigeon corpes and did the middle level. From the entrance the tunnel turned to the right. directly in front was small poo covered staircase curving round to the left down the to bottom room. Stangely the ceiling was only high enough to crawl down the stairs. Turning left the tunnel continued a short way with a couple of recess's cut into the walls. Towards the end on the right was a small drop going into the lower room. Looking back down tunnel At the end an entrance to the left was a short passage leading into the first room, on the right was a brick stair case leading up short passage there were seats carved into the chalk and a small candle recess with soot still on the wall. looking into room from passage chalk seats Next we headed up the stairs. At the top was small tunnel going of the left which was blocked and some more stairs leading to the original entrance at the surface. Looking up the stairs caped of entrance at ground level back down the stairs we headed...... we wanted to take a look in the bottom room but didnt wana crawl down the poo stairs so we jumped down the drop bottom room, passage at end leads to poo stairs looking other way, there was a recess on the right, probably for a toilet all in all was a good little adventure. it isnt very big but took us a while to fight our way through the pigeons and try not to touch the crumbling walls. Will DEFINATELY not be going back. Did a little video which can be seen here...... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BtJHUj0iqmI
