This was taken from the car on the way there.
Finally they came into view after a muddy and long walk.
Up close wow.
Inside some control room.
My mate standing next to one of those towers, its huge.
A old helicopter, this place was used for paintballing.
The helicopter controls.
Couldn't resist a pic of this on the way in, thats all of the pics I got as my battery died on me, enjoy the pics, it was fun with a nice pub lunch and drink afterwards, got absolutely filthy but great fun.
The main entrance.
The flooded boiler house.
This ornate work was all around the hall, fantastic.
The obligatory radiator pic.
One of the many corridors.
Some fancy artwork.
I now know that this is a training aid, but it scared the life out of me in the dark.
Someone left there boots behind.
Some of the toys etc and there were lots of books under the stage.
Lovely wooden doors into the hall.
These made me crack up.
It was a great day out with Miss CSI, well worth a visit if you are nearby.
The tiny hole we squeezed through.
Lots of old bottles and rubbish lying about, we think that when pleasurama was on the site they used to put some of there stuff inside this place.
Lots of carvings in the chalk.
This was a nice easy explore.
One of the corridors, we didn't get any pics of the front of this place as security was very tight and if I remember there hut was right at the front of the building.
The main hall. The architecture and ceiling were fantastic, very sad that it has got into this state, the architect whose name escapes me designed alot of the asylums in the uk.
The stage at the back of the hall.
I just luv this coloured broken glass.
Whats left of the old hairdressers.
A great explore, this place is how I got my exploring jeans as I ripped them on a fence, so have worn them ever since. Enjoy the pics.
We started having a nose around in a couple of the larger building, there are loads of bits and pieces laying around everything from cranes to miners boots. In the admin building there are contracts of employment laying every where dating from around 1930 until the mid 80's.
There is one small problem.....security, as we came out from the back of the building marked "opening" we saw them pull up, so after a hasty and covert move away to the slag heap we made our way back toward the buildings on the left, then more security pulled onto the site so we decided to make an exit and plan our next visit a little better.
Sorry about the pic's my Box brownie is shagged and then half way round the battery's also died. Not sure what all the cloud effects are....maybe the ghosts of past miners.
I will add some notes to the pics later. Bit short on time at the mo.
