UK Charing Cross and St Pancras Hotel rooftops, London - February 2015

Recommended Posts

I'm sort of a newbie again after my semi retirement so you'll have to bear with me! Visited a couple of London rooftops during a visit down south earlier this year. It was a cold, windy February so the photos are lacking a bit in quality unfortunately.

 

Both done on the same morning/evening. Last one was a 5 minutes visits before catching my train back home.

      Thought I'd post up photos from my visit here in April this year.
      This location is very under-valued in my opinion, it is in fantastic condition inside and makes for a really interesting couple of hours explore. The building is pretty big inside, many offices and little back rooms to be found, as well as two projector rooms (Projectors sadly gone) with 3 cinema screens and lots of other random rooms. There's also a fair amount of origenal features and detailing in the building, which is fantastic!
      The cinema closed its doors in 1999 (I think) when the multiplex odeon opened down the road at lockmeadow. It has laied empty ever since, although someone must maintain it, as it's surprisingly clean and tidy inside, and the ventilation/heating system is still on (as the bingo hall underneath share the same system)
      Apologies for the quality of these pics, they were on my old camera and were mostly handheld as I didn't posess a tripod back then!!

      Going up . . .

      Pop corn anyone??

      To the Cinema Screens

      This is Screen 2, Screens 1 and 2 are virtually identical mirror images of each other where the origenal audatorium was split in 2.


      Motors that powered the screen curtains and shuttering.

      Screen 3 was the most amazing room with the most fantastic plasterwork in the ceiling.



      And this random room, who knows what it was used for, but there were lots of period features in it, and a bloody strip light right in the middle spoiling it all!


      Random rooms everywhere with all sorts of bits in


      Some projector room equipment, but no projectors



      And a couple of images from the roof looking over maidstone


      It was an amazing place to look round, nice and warm and dry for a change as well.

      This is the only surviving example of a kent colliery, and is looking in an increasingly bad way in recent times.
      They're still un-sure what they want to do with the buildings, so at the moment they stand there empty, a monument to the sites past use.






      All the mine shafts have one of these on them, there were 3 in total, this one was the shallowest, the deepest was over 900metres making Snowdown the deepest colliery in Kent.




      Not a lot to see really, but a nice way to spend a couple of hours, and quite a laid back explore as the security people patrolling were actually fine with us being there
      Please ignore the quality of these pics, it was over a year ago and I was still getting used to the camera!

      St Clement's served as a mental hospital from 1937-2007, housed in old workhouse buildings constructed in the late 1800s. Here's some shots from South Block.

      The morgue, which is to be retained and turned into a house if I recall correctly.

      No slab, but a few bits and pieces remained here until someone booted the back gate in and everything of scrap value disappeared.

      This place is mostly houses now but we managed to nip in just before they tore the place down. You don't see a lot of newspaper bases like this anymore, an all encompassing site consisting of offices, dining area & social club, printing facilities and also warehousing for distribution. KM will be opening a new office here at some point but the days of a giant operation like this are long gone.




      Breaking news(room)



      Only remnants of the hard-hitting journalism in the newsroom was the best looking pet competition!



      There were a few old photos lying around showing how things were done years ago like this old printing press.

      Another showed the print hall behind the newspaper offices and we were able to do a before...

      ...and after.
