I was on a walkabout in Margate last year and ventured into the Dreamland site, heavy security presence at the time, did try the female charm to get nearer for better pics but it was a no-go, as you are all probably aware this lovely historic railway was damaged badly by fire earlier in the year, anyway on with the pics I did get.
Dreamland opened in 1920 and is a Grade II listed, the park has the oldest roller coaster in the uk, the link below gives more history and info.
They left a door open for me lol, security and there cat were right next to this in there hut.
Looking through the window.
Did manage to get around back on top of car-park and get a few pics.
Enjoy the pics.
I was out having a walk around and seen a few reports of this place and thought why not, the gate was open so I walked in, I saw a landrover parked around the corner, then I went and walked straight into a security man, nice enough fella he let me wander around taking a few pics, tried all doors, but couldn't get inside, this was a unplanned visit lol, it was built in 1865 and closed in 2005, then sold, I do believe it is going to be turned into yet more apartments, but as yet work hasn't started, the inside from what I've seen of on other sites was mint inside. Enjoy the pics.
The main gate and entrance.
This amused me for some reason.
Enjoy the pics, this was a nice little explore.
I cannot give the location of this site out, as amazingly, it is under my friends cellar in his house!
I popped down today to take some pictures, it has been covered on underground kent, but rather boringly, so I thought id jazz the place up a little, and it was good practise for me haha
the tunnel itself is entered by some steps from the cellar, then you have a tunnel running to your left and right, about 7 metres each side. At the end of the right side however, there is a small hole in the top of the tunnel that leads up to the garden, this has been covered with some thin plastic, because its hidden in the bushes so nobody will fall down it!
Straight ahead of you is a chalk tunnel that leads down the the well, which is approx 260ft deep. Standing on the well grille and looking up you can see that it would have met ground height, but the owners have now capped the top.
I played with long exposure A LOT, im sorry... im learning
these used to drain water down into the well
These markins were apparently found here
&&&& here is the beast... Can you notice a small hole a few metres down?? hmm
Looking back up, capped off at surface level
Back into the cellar, can anyone think why there is a clear arch in the bricks
Its taken me fooking ages to set all this up so if i might have forgotten anything, if you want to check here my photobucket
Visited this place a few months ago but did not descend into the 2 chambers as I was by myself, felt a little braver this morning so went back for another look. Unfortunately I did not take my box brownie this time as I forgot to pick it up when I left, the pics below are from my first visit but only show the entrance tunnel and a few shots down into it. Went in this time, what a great little place, no chav damage and in really good nick. It was originally built to supply water to the Silversprings factory.
