UK Cairn Cottages, Scotland - Sept 15

Recommended Posts

This quick selection of pics is from a recent trip into the mountains near where I live to visit some lovely cottages.  These locations are all within close proximity to each other so makes for a nice day out.

 

First stop was an old school, which was half converted into a house, but never quite got finished and sits quietly at the side of the road.

Next up, a good few minutes walk away was this old cottage which was well set off the road, but sadly very negligated, so much so it was filled with sheep shit half way up the door, but what a view!

The Straw Cottage, lying quietly down a old foresty road, ground floor was full to the ceiling with straw bales, but the first floor held some nice pieces of furniture.

The last stop just up the road in a very overgrown cottage, I thought it would be pretty rubbish, but I was pleasantly surprised!

So there you go four fairly average cottages, but all very lovely in their own way!

 

Thanks for looking!

      This is the only surviving example of a kent colliery, and is looking in an increasingly bad way in recent times.
      They're still un-sure what they want to do with the buildings, so at the moment they stand there empty, a monument to the sites past use.






      All the mine shafts have one of these on them, there were 3 in total, this one was the shallowest, the deepest was over 900metres making Snowdown the deepest colliery in Kent.




      Not a lot to see really, but a nice way to spend a couple of hours, and quite a laid back explore as the security people patrolling were actually fine with us being there
      Please ignore the quality of these pics, it was over a year ago and I was still getting used to the camera!

      St Clement's served as a mental hospital from 1937-2007, housed in old workhouse buildings constructed in the late 1800s. Here's some shots from South Block.

      The morgue, which is to be retained and turned into a house if I recall correctly.

      No slab, but a few bits and pieces remained here until someone booted the back gate in and everything of scrap value disappeared.

      This place is mostly houses now but we managed to nip in just before they tore the place down. You don't see a lot of newspaper bases like this anymore, an all encompassing site consisting of offices, dining area & social club, printing facilities and also warehousing for distribution. KM will be opening a new office here at some point but the days of a giant operation like this are long gone.




      Breaking news(room)



      Only remnants of the hard-hitting journalism in the newsroom was the best looking pet competition!



      There were a few old photos lying around showing how things were done years ago like this old printing press.

      Another showed the print hall behind the newspaper offices and we were able to do a before...

      ...and after.

      These are my first pictures on OS, quite late as I seem to have been really busy lately!
      This was good wander on a Bank Holiday weekend recently. This 22-storey building known as St George's House is being converted to flats after Swiss cereal peddlers Nestle moved out last September.


      After going up all those stairs , this was the perfect spot to enjoy a cold beer. In hindsight, we should have brought a barbecue



      ...and now for the long way down...


      The previously posh reception area has been turned into a base for the demo crew.




      Adios
