UK Streatham High Rd Crane, London - December 2015

Recommended Posts

I thought I'd post this up for anyone in the Streatham/South London area who might be interested. Nothing much to see here really, just my local crane that I've been looking at from the bus every day for the past few months. It's situated on the old Streatham Megabowl construction site where I spent many an hour exploring a couple of years ago. The Megabowl and Caesar's Palace have both been entirely demolished now sadly except for the Megabowl's facade which is being retained for the new development of flats and retail outlets. The views aren't particularly amazing from up here but it's certainly the highest thing around at the moment and it's been calling me for months!  


1. I prefer to look up at the jib than to climb it thanks!






3. Streatham High Rd



4. Crystal Palace transmitter in the distance



5. The back of the Megabowl facade is visible bottom left



6. Looking along Streatham Hill






8. A nice comfy chair perfect for supping on a beer!



Thanks for looking :thumb

      Visited with The Kwan on a rainy Saturday, some lovely bits left in the area and we missed quite a bit so theres always an excuse for a return visit.
      Some History
      The name Ratgoed derives from “Yr Allt Goed”, which means the steep, wooded hillside. Ratgoed mine was also sometimes known as “Alltgoed”. The Ratgoed slate workings lie at the head of what was originally called Cwm Ceiswyr but became known as Cwm Ratgoed because of the quarry. It lies north of Aberllefenni and northwest of Corris in, what is now, the Dyfi Forest.
      The slate that was quarried at Ratgoed was the Narrow Vein. This runs from south of Tywyn, on the coast, to Dinas Mawddwy about 18 miles inland and follows the line of the Bala Fault. The Narrow Vein was worked along its length at places such as Bryneglwys near Abergynolwyn; Gaewern & Braich Goch at Corris, Foel Grochan at Aberllefenni and Minllyn at Dinas Mawddwy. The slate at Ratgoed dips at 70° to the southeast, the same as Foel Grochan.
      Ratgoed was a relatively small working, it was worked from around 1840 until its closure in 1946.

      Taxal Lodge - Photographic Report - 2018

      #TaxelLodge Photographic Report - 11th March 2018 Built-in 1904 Taxal Lodge was once the home of Lt. Col. H. Ramsden Jodrell, Who passed away in 1950.
      The home became a Special School, for disruptive and emotionally disturbed kids that lived on site 5 days a week. It replaced an older Taxal Lodge that originally stood further up the valley. 

      Over the years there have been various reports of abuse within the school and a lot of visitors and students claim that the lodge is haunted. 
      Once the plug was pulled by the authorities the school was closed in 2005. Since its closure, the lodge fell victim to vandals & arson.

      Now other nature has now begun to stake her claim...

      Some pics from this once excellent, now demolished morgue that was part of the Harold Wood Hospital in Essex.
      Not too many locations like this in the UK at present, few and far between!
      Visited in July 2011.

      Last explore of 2012 brought us to this old Post Office in the middle of Steeltown.
      I don’t know how long it has been closed but it looks to have been quite some time. There's not that much to see inside but it has some great decay and a cool spiral staircase.
      Visited with Rusty, Andre Govia & Chard.
      Here's a few pictures.
