Moo Farm

 

The Explore

 

Visited with @Urbexbandoned and my first piece of cottaging. Thanks to @Judderman62 for the info on this one, much appreciated mate. 

Also, thanks to the cows nearby for refraining from charging at us and stomping on our heads. They merely gave us evils instead and moo'd from time to time reminding us that they could be waiting for us around any corner. I didn't get a massive amount of photos here as i decided to leave my tripod in the boot. I struggled with the low light downstairs and came home with mostly blurry messes of pics, twat, but i enjoyed the little time capsule all the same.

 

The History (stolen)

 

Built in around 1875 this little farmhouse was a thriving business with cattle producing milk for locals. Since around 1901 a family moved in to the farm, the parents died leaving their children to run the farm. 

The farm has been derelict for some years, I am not too sure how long but parts of it and especially the little trinkets & belongings have been preserved nicely. The farm land around it is still in use by local farmers who use it to keep their sheep and cows on the land.

      History 
       
      Due to the aircraft stationed at RAF Coningsby there was an external bomb dump, in order to Reduce the quantities of explosives stored and the number of personnel exposed to risk, along with separating explosive processing from storage were the major lessons adopted in what I believe was the reason for a bomb dump further away than normal. 
      Historically I couldn't find much on this place. I did find out about an accident that occurred there in 1971 though. 
      An accident which killed 2 armourers while they were preparing 68mm SNEB Rockets. Without warning, one initiated in the process building they were working in. There was an unexplained electrostatic discharge causing the rocket motor to fire. 
       
      The Explore 
      Well this is pretty close for me, literally just down the road. I have been here before. Obviously having a connection to the RAF held some interest here. 
      I explored with @hamtagger as per  We had a relatively leisurely stroll around. As far as bomb dumps go it was 'normal' in layout and relatively huge.  Admin buildings scattered the front section of the site past the picket post and the remainder were process buildings or prep buildings. 
      We ventured in to one and noticed that we hadn't seen it before, on any reports or throughout social media but it was what was inside that caught my attention. Guns & not the handheld sort. I have had to do a bit of research on this because I wasn't aware that firstly they were Royal Navy guns & secondly what type of gun they were. It turns out that there was 2 types, the first was a GCM-A03 twin barrelled Oerlikon. This had a firing seat where someone could sit, almost like a little cabin. It was a bloody tight squeeze as well and I am tiny! Apparently capable of firing 650 rounds a minute. The second which there were 2 of didn't have a firing seat so it was fired by someone either standing up and shooting it or controlled electronically. The first fired 30mm rounds while the second fired 35mm rounds. Both would have been mounted on a ship & both had the barrels removed. Next to this we also found what we believe to be a small communication suite. I have never seen one before and may never do again but it was cosy and compact! We had more or less finished when we spotted 2 blokes part literally right outside & jump over the front gate, they seemed to follow us to the rear side of the site. No camera's or owt then just disappeared. 
      Anyway, enough of my waffle & on to the pics

      History 
      Malsis School located at a mansion known as Malsis Hall in the village of Crosshills, in North Yorkshire, England, was a co-educational independent pre-prep and preparatory school for pupils aged three to 13 years. The school was founded in 1920 and closed due to falling pupil numbers in 2014. Facilities at the school included 3 km mountain bike trail, 9-hole golf course, swimming pool, all weather pitch, rifle range and 40 acres of grounds.
      The school closed on 10 December 2014, when the final assembly started at 11 am and concluded at 1 pm. The next day the school trust went into administration with Ernst & Young of Leeds. The school's assets were auctioned off and the land and building sold by Eddisons, and having fully paid off its debts it passed into creditors voluntary liquidation and the company was finally dissolved on 4 August 2017.
      In January 2015, The Old Malsis Association (OMA) was formed to represent the views of school alumni from down the years.
      Malsis Hall and its grounds have been sold to Seddon Construction, which plans to build 100 new homes on the site and transform the former school building into a specialist rehabilitation centre - subject to planning permission being granted. Proprietors Jonathan and Jamie Seddon were both former Malsis pupils in the 1980s.
       
      Explore 
      Me & @hamtagger had seen this pop up online a few times & ventured over to yourkshire. We met @Moz88 while in the grounds before we even got in and was nice to explore with someone new. A rather ungraceful entry by all 3 of us added comedy to the explore. This place was as interesting as it's history. Literally everywhere you looked there was something ornate or some thing that caught our eye. Probably one of the nicest places I have visited. The tower had been unused for some time with no steps up to the top. The place wasn't in bad condition at all. With the main mansion house being where the interesting stuff was the back end of the school which was the newer part did hold some nice bits to see. Some of it was quite sad with pictures of the girls and boys still littering the tables and art/french work adorning the walls. I loved all of the ornamental ceilings & architecture, the pediments outside the headmasters office & main building were very 'stately home'. 
      Anyway on to the pics.
