UK The Millennium Falcon, in a galaxy far far away.... May 2016

Recommended Posts

As a Star Wars fan since my childhood and hearing rumours of the Millennium Falcon landing nearby I knew it was my destiny to explore it. We took a BBQ and some beers into the forest of Endor and set up camp. After fending off a few horny ewoks and getting ourselves a couple of hours sleep we woke up to the sound of the Imperial March music coming from my alarm clock. We set about our quest nervously but knowing “fear is the path to the dark side......”

 

Thanks and kudos to @bauhausgirland friends for some helpful tips, lifts and for getting in here first, also thanks to Ash for having the foresight to remember his Jedi cloak, and everyone else who came along for the ride, definitely one of the most fun places I've had the pleasure to explore!  Enjoy

 

1. “You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon?"

2. "It’s the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs."

3. "She'll make point five past lightspeed. She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid. I've made a lot of special modifications myself."

4. "It's true. All of it. The dark side. The Jedi. They're real".

5. "Chewie, we're home...."

6. On entering the ship you would hope to find it like this and maybe sit down for a game of hologram chess or something but it's not quite like that

7. "It's a trap!"

8. The reality is that it's made mostly out of wood and is held together with scaffolding poles

9. However you can just about get into the cockpit

10. "Laugh it up, Fuzz ball." 

26584364284_1368c6e789_b.jpg

 

11. "Punch it"

27110041071_04df98a05d_b.jpg

 

12. "This bucket of bolts's never gonna get us past that blockade."

26574467573_b301c763de_b.jpg

 

13. "Would it help if I got out and pushed?"

27145732226_89442889c9_b.jpg

 

14. "You came in that thing? You're braver than I thought ..." (This one sounds a bit strange out of context.... :o)

26583222434_7505147525_b.jpg

 

15. The level of external detail is amazing

16. Even the ground on which the ship is sat is fake 

27145721876_a90fb93659_b.jpg

 

17. "What a piece of junk"

27145685416_881ae2a229_b.jpg

 

18. "She's the fastest ship in the fleet."

26573134134_fe7cac2ce1_b.jpg

 

19. "She's the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy!"

26574326863_f81b8964ce_b.jpg

 

20. Ahch-to, the planet where Luke Skywalker was living in exile at the end of The Force Awakens

26914191010_bb20931ca0_b.jpg

 

21. Other vehicles sit waiting to be uncovered, a land speeder amongst other things, not sure what else yet.....

27083572182_c8a9eed266_b.jpg

 

22. "The Dark Side of the Force is the pathway to many abilities some consider to be… Unnatural."  

26585736124_5d7514eea2_c.jpg

 

"Remember...the Force will be with you, always."

      I nipped over last night to check the fire damage.
      The only building that was on fire is the St Mary's building (which was a nurses home not a care home as I have written in this report). It has suffered damage to the right hand side of the building but is not totally burned out.

      There is a planning application submitted to demolish most of the buildings on the site including St Edwards. As far as I could see there has been no descision made on it yet.

      I also found this on the net (link below), it gives the whole history and a detailed report on all the buildings. There is still some unseen stuff here notably the chapel within the former St Gerards Hospital which is now offices. If demo goes ahead I'm sure it will become more accesible. It will be a shame to see these buildings go as it's a great urbex site imo.

      Hi All
      As much as we all hate to see our beloved shrines of dereliction, they all eventually either get ripped down or converted
      A lot of these are good, and a lot of them are very, very bad
      What are the best ones you have seen?
      My favourite has to be Nethernene on the hill. Located just down the road from cane hill
      Its a beauty

      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:
