  2. Just a small chapel on the roadside. I don't know anything about the history. Visited with @The_Raw. 1 2 3 4 5 6
  3. The small chapel is idyllically situated on the hillside. Standing at the foot of the hill, the building is almost invisble. Thanks to the season, the knowing eye is able to spot the chapel between the sparse vegetation. Following up the slope for few minutes, a small weather-beaten wall appears. Climibing up the wall, there´s a small, overgrown path to follow. Inside the chapel it´s silent. Peaceful. The roof is full of holes - traces of the ravages of time. Ivy climbs steadily through the biggest of them. There´s still a large crucifix on the wall. The detailed depiction of Jesus is still in an unbelievable excellent condition. While Jesus looks as good as new, everything around him is decaying relentlessly. Unfortunately, I hardly have any information about the chapel. Old commemorative plaques testify that the chapel was probably errected by a local noble family. The building should be far more than 100 years old by now.
  4. Germany Small Brewery - September 2016

    I don´t have much information about the small brewery which is located in the south of Germany. The current owner is a guy from England, who disappeared some years ago. Since then, the building has been left to decay. The story hit some headlines in the local newspapers. Small, but I loved it anyway!

  6. Hey folks! Have not posted in awhile so thought I would share a fair amount of places, I have visited over the past few months. This place I was keen to visit, I dont really like hospitals much but this small place caught my eye, mainly for those luxury tray pillows I heard its now sealed if anyone is venturing this way anytime soon, but other places are doable onsite Anyway A small mortuary! Short & Sweet! Cheers for taking a look!

  10. After a snowy and sunny morning myself Fat Panda and Kalum headed up north and our first stop was a little morgue and the slab was clean enough to eat your dinner off! Not much left in here but it doesn't seem to have had the pikey's and chav's in yet! Was only a quick stop here and my pictures arent up to much but thought I would post them up anyway! Cheers for looking
  11. A quick Bank Holiday solo visit to this old Pumping Station. Commissioned in 1949, I’m not sure as to when it was decommissioned but it looks like it may have been a while. Its a very small place, basically there’s only two rooms to see but there’s some nice old control panels with plenty of knobs, levers & dials along with some other bits & bob’s. It hasn’t suffered too much from Pikey damage but they have definetaly been there at some point although that looks to have ben a while ago. All in all, it’s not bad for an hour or so and I found a tenner in the room with the scales which was an unexpected bonus and a first on an explore for me! Here are some pics #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9 #10 #11 #12
  12. A mate wanted to have a go at Exploring so I needed somewhere easy that I hadn't done before. Quick check on the interwebs and a drive over to Wales was on the cards. Couple of sites combined into one report. The estate of Pool Parc, has been around a long, long time and was originally one of several deer parks where the owners of nearby Ruthin Castle could hunt. In the 1500s the Salesbury family bought the estate and divided it in two, one half remaining with the father William Salesbury, and the other part going to his son and heir Charles. Charles died with no male heir so his line stopped. The original house and the estate then passed into the Bagot family when Charles' daughter married Sir Walter Bagot. In 1862 the original house on the estate was re-built in a mock Tudor, half timbered style. No expense was spared on the interior where elaborate wood panelling graces the rooms and corridors and a magnificent oak staircase, complete with ornamental wood carvings, sweeps majestically down two flights of stairs mirrored left and right, into the grand entrance hall. The staircase is said to have originally come from a former bishop's residence called Clocaenog. Whilst still remaining in the family's ownership the house was not actually lived in by the Bagots throughout much of the 1800s and then in 1928 they lost it all, lock, stock and barrel, on a bet at the races! In order to make the sale of the estate quick and easy the land was split into lots but a Llanwrst timber merchant got the lion's share, subsequently felling and selling much of the timber from the surrounding forest. The house was not sold but was eventually leased to Sir Henry Tate of Tate & Lyle's sugar fame. In the mid 1930's Pool Park was bought by the local health authority with the intention of converting it into a convalescent home for 80 male patients, and then during the war this was increased to 120. A prisoner of war camp was also built in the grounds! In 1949 the house became a mental hospital to take some of the pressure off nearby Denbigh Asylum which was by now creaking at the seams. At this point female patients began to be treated as well. During the late 60s and early 70s mental asylums in the UK were progressively closed and Pool Park was no exception, finally closing it's doors in 1989. After this quick visit, hopped back in the mirthmobile to the big brother. Used to look good, now utterly paggered. Was hard to find anything to shoot anymore. The North Wales Lunatic Asylum was the first psychiatric institution built in Wales; construction began in 1844 and completed in 1848 in the town of Denbigh. It was original called ‘The North Wales Counties of Caernarvonshire, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Merionethshire and Anglesey Asylum'. The U-shaped Tudorbethain style hospital was built due to the spreading word of mistreatment of Welsh people in English asylums; The North Wales Hospital would be a haven for welsh speaking residents to seek treatment without prejudice or a language barrier. Renovations and extensions were made at the hospital from 1867 until 1956, when the hospital reached its maximum capacity at 1,500 patients living inside her walls and 1,000 staff at hand. Physical treatments such as Cardiazol, malarial treatment, insulin shock treatment, and sulphur based drugs were used and developed in the 1920s and 1930s, and 1941-1942 saw the advent of electro convulsive therapy (ECT) and pre-frontal leucotomy (lobotomy) treatments. In 1960, Enoch Powell visited the North Wales Hospital, and later announced the “Hospital Plan†for England and Wales, which proposed that psychiatric care facilities be attached to general hospitals and favored community care over institutional settings. This was the beginning of the end for the North Wales Hospital and others like it; in 1987 a ten year strategy to close the hospital was formed. The North Wales Hospital was closed in sections from 1991 to 2002; most notable was the closure of the main hospital building in 1995. The future of the grade II listed buildings remain uncertain. UK Living presented a ‘Most Haunted Live’ show during Halloween 2008 which drew local criticism at the poor understanding of mental health issues and general slurs on the local town and area. On the 22nd November 2008 the main hall was subject to an arson attack, resulting in the complete demolition of the hall. This halted all further development plans on the site which has now stood derelict since. Cheers
  13. Hi everyone, I'm totally new to all of this. Really want to start exploring but currently seems my friends don't (just yet). Id be grateful for any tips really and where to go - I'm in the Cambridgeshire area. Hopefully see you around. Grace
  14. Just up the road from the picturesque Dobbs Weir is an overgrown plot of land that I have been driving past for months. Behind the brambles is a what looks like a very large collapsing shed, every time I turn my head at it and wonder if there is anything of interest in it. Had it been bigger and made of brick then I would have been in like a shot, but this? Is it going to be worth the trek and the scratches?? It turns out that its called 'Picardy', probably named after the province in Northern France famed for The Battle of the Somme, so I did my normal research and came up with a very sad news paper article about the place It would appear that there was a caravan type mobile home in the garden of Picardy, it's not clear whether anybody still lived in the house itself at the time, but going by the dates on some of the stuff inside then I would guess that the house was in such a poor state of repair that it was abandoned and the caravan in the garden became the new home. The caravan base is just visible through the sea of stinging nettles In September 2010 a planning application for 4 detached houses was rejected by Epping Forest Council So, it on with the photos and I'll let you see what you make of the place Thanks for looking
  15. Why a small bit of? Well basically this place is in the middle of a housing estate, we knew it was going to be risky and we weren't wrong. 15 minutes later and we were being brought out of the place by Kent finest law enforcement officers, there were precisely 6 of them and a police dog unit as well. The irritating thing about the whole affair is if it weren't for some pikey following us into the building who was after niking copper, then we'd probably have not been caught. They saw him entering through the same window we'd just climbed through. Police were OK, stop and search and away we went. I don't know an awful lot about the place, except it's been closed around 2 years, and is set for redevelopment into housing - the building is due to be demolished I believe. I think planning has only recently been approved, so hopefully it'll be there a while longer yet I only got a few pics that are worth posting, as we only got about half way down the first floor corridor before we got caught. Maniac.
