Recommended Posts

Thanks to sime for the tip off on this place.visited this with a few friends.we hit it early on a wet and grey morning.it was a bit of a trek up a very muddy path.i slipped over twice.and was filthy.but it was worth it.you could only get in one train there.but it was lovely and reminded me off the derelict orient express in Belgium.it was nice to wander around the outside too with all the bits and bobs laying about.

Such a cool find by@Sime, many people have happily travelled to Belgium to photograph an identical train carriage. Great pics Mikey :thumb

Always a bit wary when it comes to railways after having a run in with the BTP. Still having said that they realised that they had sweet FA on me and havent called me back. :thumb

      Not a lot about this place, I believe the bowling part shut down in 2009 and then the crystal maze part shut down in 2010. Oakwood own this place and have no plans for it besides letting it rot away. Whoever is trying to look after this place is attempting to keep people out. Heard about this place from a different site, easy to find, such a pain in the arse to get into as there's a very tight gap to try and squeeze through..
      Thee maze is bigger than first thought, only uploaded a few pictures of that.

      One from the vault. Did a quick search on this one and surprisingly saw very little in the way of reports - so thought I'd share my take on it.
      Back in the day this place was quite infamous - mostly it seems due to the few 'bad apples' that lurk within the exploring community. Stories of looting and selling out to the media were rife. 
      It is quite a special place for me as its the kind of place that's close to where my ancestors lived and I can imagine its the kind of place they would call home. Its located in a wild and isolated place, it would have been a harsh and bleak landscape to live in at times but in its own way stunning and beautiful. 
      I visited twice in the early part of 2015. The house had obviously been left unoccupied a very long time until it suddenly appeared on the radar. The owners had become aware of this and tried securing it.  On my first visit I noticed a big new shiny padlock was in place on the outhouse. When I returned about a month later the whole door had been smashed. A little later all doors and windows were boarded up, leading to an unofficial renaming by one clever wordsmith as Shroud Cottage. It appears that also didn't deter those with no sense of respect in the search for 15 minutes of Facebook fame. 
      Enough of the backstory and on with the pictures:

      History -
      My visit -
      I visited this site recently with two friends that I run the facebook page 0151 Outdoors with, if you are on facebook, give us a like!
      Well, I dont really know if this can be classed as a report, haven't had too much luck on my first few explores, but I'm not letting that stop me.  This time, I arrived on site, and took a few pictures of the exterior before two dodgy blokes of possibly eastern european descent came running around the corner, shouting about how the building is ''TOP SECRET''
      They weren't too frightening, so I grabbed a few pictures as I walked off the grounds, the guy in the last picture told me as I was leaving, ''£10 pictures outside, £20 pictures inside'' but I think I'd rather try again in future, its part of the fun. I dont know how true it is, but apparently the building is now owned by a man from Pakistan, and a lot of bits from inside have been removed.
      Anyway, these are just a couple of the pictures I took of the exterior, shame I didnt get inside as it looks interesting on other peoples reports.
