UK Cloud Cottage, Wales, June 2016

Recommended Posts

I've always wanted to come across an abandoned house with Gas Masks from the Second World war still inside, possibly the inner child in me who glorified war growing up, still influencing my interest in that conflict. And with reports of 'Soldiers Widow' being emptied of most things of interest this was the only location that I knew of, that was a maybe. 

So while I was in Wales to guide a friend down a certain slate mine full of cars, I made sure I had plenty of time to stop by here. 

Passing by a very angry looking farmer on the long single road to this location, who obviously knew where we were going, we walked the rest of the way, from where the road ended with haste. Arriving at the house, we found it to be very professionally boarded up, upstairs and down, quite possibly the best i've seen, all reinforced inside too. Fortunately for me, it was still accessible. 

 

Inside it was pitch black and had a family of rats/mice (I didnt see any, but I heard them squealing and saw plenty of droppings). And with a farmer Potentially on his way up to bullock us, I was in and out in 10-15 mins.

I just set my tripod up, plonked it down, shone the torch at the ceiling (so that the light reflected and lit the room evenly) and shot as quick as i could. In hindsight I wish I took more time.

Nice to see this place pop up again. I thought it's days were long gone. Sad to see the state of it now but it's the same with most thesedays.

Some really nice shots, I like the organ one, very beautifuly detailed woodwork on that. Nice clock too.

 

Thanks for sharing :thumb

I can imagine you don't want to stay too long with that farmer behind.

Great location and so much to see! Like 2 and 4 :thumb

      Visited with @albino jay and @GK-WAX and thanks again to jay for doing the driving and I also stole your history mate because I couldn’t find any hope you don’t mind. We was passing by the mill on our way home so popped in for a look. And glad we did I like these old mills. And the demo team were already on site so don’t know how long it has left to stand. So here’s the history and pics..
       
      Steam-powered worsted-spinning mill built around 1850 on Black Brook.
       
      Owners and tenants of the mills have included
      James Nutton & Company [1863]
      John Horsfall & Sons Limited [1896]
      F. K. Adcock & Company [1936]
      Part of the Mills are still standing though no longer used.
      The mill had a 170 ft tall chimney which was struck by lightning in 1967. The chimney was reduced in height – to avoid further strikes – and was finally demolished in March/April 1992
       
      The majority of the Mills were demolished in 2017.

      this house always interested me..the yard was filled with junk..old cars..and other junk..it gave the appearence of being abandoned but someone clearly lived there

      the area became prime real estate..mcmansions went up and taxes went up..i knew this houses wouldent last....i went by and saw it was finally empty
      the 1st floor was a neat gloomy  house



      rooms that feel like a horror movie

      all the lights hung poorly..surpised there wasent a fir from them..



       

      see more of that in a bit

      upstairs'


      the upstairs was nthing but an attic...no bedrooms or bathroom..this was a single floor home..



      basement

      a wood burning heater...thats an old way to heat a house



      the last thing still hanging that shows the personality of the owner


      odd old stained glass

      not sure what that is...

      ..the dead and prarie home companion
       
      There are a few male voices caught inside one seems like another lanuage

      This place has been on the radar for a while now but never got the chance to properly take a look. The dome itself can be seen for quite a few miles across the surrounding areas. Not a great deal of information available other than it looks like some sort of water treatment site/reservoir possibly used by the MOD, given the land its situated on. It doesn't appear to be fully derelict either as you can still here the sound of running water and the grass seems to be trimmed.
       
      The explore went as planned, few dog walkers here and there, other than that spent a little while looking around.

      First things first - this place is a death-trap. Simple as that. And it's quite likely to be worse now than it was when I went. But as I have a bit of an obsession about redundant old cinemas and theatres I left all common sense at the entrance.
       
      The building still shows signs of its grand past but sadly any possibility of saving it looks pretty slim, although a Trust has been set up to try to preserve it and bring it back into use.
       
      The four-storey building, designed by G. B. Rawcliffe, opened in 1894 as a music hall, before being converted to a cinema in 1938. It was last used as a bingo hall in 1995.
