UK Bambers Green Riding Centre - July 2017

Recommended Posts

Knowing this place from years ago in the days it was active, and heading back from a days exploring in Norfolk, this was last on the list for myself and RelictaSpiritus.


I had memories many moons ago meeting a girl who worked at Bambers Green, but unfortunately after speaking for many weeks I found her somewhat rude upon arrival. I couldn’t resist including that in the report…

 

But anyway, the site was slowly but surely being reclaimed by nature but still had plenty to see so cracking on myself and Relicta made our way through the site.

 

The highlight for myself was one of the two houses, simply a stunning property which leaves me surprised that such a place has been left to waste away. Even the houses past was clearly shown with equestrian type decoration in various places.

Looking for the history on the location, the houses are actually up for sale which again leaves me somewhat perplexed as to how or why they haven’t yet sold.

 

Unfortunately (my favourite report word), much of the remains worth seeing that I have seen on other reports appears to have now long gone.

 

Onto the history and pictures now, along with a huge thanks to RelictaSpiritus for the day out! Fantastic day, even smashing my previous exploring record with 8 locations in one day.

      Last year we tried to get in Scarborough sports centre but they have seriously locked that place up tight, nothing on the roof, no tunnels or anything.So we just made a short video of the outside. Today I went back with the newest member of our URBEX team, the drone and got some higher up shots. Here are the photos from the drone...

      This was a fairly easy explore as these buildings are not as protected as the main college and the park relies on tourists to inform security about any vandals.
      The gymnasium was the hardest to get into as we had to avoid getting seen by any onlookers. So going at a later time of day would be advised.
      You should be cautious if you get further into the student centre as some of the doors looked to be alarmed.
      The classrooms are in the open and not surrounded by anything so you are likely to be spotted by security or tourists.
      We had a run in with security who were quite well mannered and laid back. All they said was that we were not to go near the building as it is a demolition site.

      Glen Parva was constructed on the site of the former Glen Parva Barracks in the early 1970s as a borstal and has always held young offenders. Since its opening in 1974 the establishment has seen considerable expansion and change and now serves a catchment area of over 100 courts, holding a mixture of sentenced, unsentenced, and remand prisoners.
      In 1997, Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Prisons walked out of an inspection at Glen Parva because conditions were so bad. After a subsequent inspection a year later, the report stated that there was "hope for the future" for the prison but added that a lot of work still needed to be done, and recommended that some staff should be moved because of their attitude towards inmates.

      Late night mission to this place made the entry a slight more easy then in the daylight, secca made this explore a lot more challenging haha! but a shame it had to be in the dark and access to most of the rooms made me see only a slight percentage of this place.  but i seen what i wanted to thankfully! And cheers to the lot that helped!

      This is my first Urbex adventure. I recently moved to West Sussex and though I'd have a look around at some popular and easily accessible sites to explore. I stumbled upon Bedham Chapel and after some quick research, I found the location and travelled there. We drove down a single track road until spotted it in the woodland below us. We parked a few hundred metres further down the road and set out on foot to get there.
       
      This is my video report that I captured and I apologise for the clickbaity title of the video and the fact that it's so weird it looks staged. But it really isn't! My girlfriends reaction to this is real and we were definitely creeped out by our find. If anyone has any idea of what this ceremony was about, please let me know!
