UK Merstham Stone Quarries 2014-2015

Recommended Posts

I have had these on my hard drive since the date above suggests,wasn't going to bother with a report but after seeing some recent activity on here of one of the locations im posting i thought why not!

I gave Tucker a shout some years back about a report he had posted and asked if it was the same location as another report i had seen titled very similar,turns out they where different locations and he was kind enough to point me in the direction of these two small workings


Seems they go by different names as they are classed as Chaldon/Bedlams bank and Merstham..So im going with the Merstham

There is much on the WCMS website in their archives of the Various workings in the area and a lot of very old documents of peoples personal accounts and digs and squabbles over access rights and land ownership which i wont bore you with by copy and pasting ,these are Firestone and they date back a very long time yet seem to have gone undocumented by the masses!

Anyhow here are some pictures from mine and Obscurity's two visits over the space of a year and a half.

Quarry No 4 up first

Thanks to Obscurity for driving and Good company while searching out other things in the area which where the main reason for coming down here and thanks to Tucker for these two which made for a nice backup plan :thumb

      Glen Parva was constructed on the site of the former Glen Parva Barracks in the early 1970s as a borstal and has always held young offenders. Since its opening in 1974 the establishment has seen considerable expansion and change and now serves a catchment area of over 100 courts, holding a mixture of sentenced, unsentenced, and remand prisoners.
      In 1997, Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Prisons walked out of an inspection at Glen Parva because conditions were so bad. After a subsequent inspection a year later, the report stated that there was "hope for the future" for the prison but added that a lot of work still needed to be done, and recommended that some staff should be moved because of their attitude towards inmates.

      Late night mission to this place made the entry a slight more easy then in the daylight, secca made this explore a lot more challenging haha! but a shame it had to be in the dark and access to most of the rooms made me see only a slight percentage of this place.  but i seen what i wanted to thankfully! And cheers to the lot that helped! 
      Enjoy the pics the few of them the rest are for the  archives

      This is my first Urbex adventure. I recently moved to West Sussex and though I'd have a look around at some popular and easily accessible sites to explore. I stumbled upon Bedham Chapel and after some quick research, I found the location and travelled there. We drove down a single track road until spotted it in the woodland below us. We parked a few hundred metres further down the road and set out on foot to get there.
      This is my video report that I captured and I apologise for the clickbaity title of the video and the fact that it's so weird it looks staged. But it really isn't! My girlfriends reaction to this is real and we were definitely creeped out by our find. If anyone has any idea of what this ceremony was about, please let me know!

      This was a fairly easy explore as these buildings are not as protected as the main college and the park relies on tourists to inform security about any vandals.
      The gymnasium was the hardest to get into as we had to avoid getting seen by any onlookers. So going at a later time of day would be advised.
      You should be cautious if you get further into the student centre as some of the doors looked to be alarmed.
      The classrooms are in the open and not surrounded by anything so you are likely to be spotted by security or tourists.
      We had a run in with security who were quite well mannered and laid back. All they said was that we were not to go near the building as it is a demolition site.

      I can't believe they left this in the open












      We didn't need to this door

      Been closed a fair while now, been here 3 times and never been able to gain access to this part of it due to it being locked off and being caught by secca once!
