UK WW2 Ammunition store - Ramsgate - Jan 07 Report.

Recommended Posts

Visited this place with Lynton, Miss CSI, and SteAlTh last year, it has now been sealed up, but a interesting little explore, Enjoy the pics.My camera wasn't the best then, had a cheap old argos number, the others have better ones.

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.

this is hms fervent...

the ammo store apparently used to be a couple of roads back and if you check out thanet underground they have listed the book they found with all the information in it.

The main reason it was believed to be the ammo store is that the 1st post on this place was done by fortknox0 on 28dl and he titled it ammo stores as thats what we believed it to be at the time!

here are a couple of ma piccys...done on a rubbish old digital back in the day but not the worst pic ever! visited this place with fortknox0.

after a load of research we found out about an ammo store in ramgate so went looking then remembered this entrance! we got there to try find a way in or see if we could get over the wall and it had literally just been knocked down by builders....this was before the wooden board had even gone up...so off we went, we later found out about HMS fervent and that the ammo store was actually further into ramsgate but i never found out where :cry:

anyway the pics

Nice pics xplora, your camera was certainly better than mine, and nice to hear the history, thankyou for that. It was bigger inside than my pics show. :)

      Not a lot about this place, I believe the bowling part shut down in 2009 and then the crystal maze part shut down in 2010. Oakwood own this place and have no plans for it besides letting it rot away. Whoever is trying to look after this place is attempting to keep people out. Heard about this place from a different site, easy to find, such a pain in the arse to get into as there's a very tight gap to try and squeeze through..
      Thee maze is bigger than first thought, only uploaded a few pictures of that.

      One from the vault. Did a quick search on this one and surprisingly saw very little in the way of reports - so thought I'd share my take on it.
      Back in the day this place was quite infamous - mostly it seems due to the few 'bad apples' that lurk within the exploring community. Stories of looting and selling out to the media were rife. 
      It is quite a special place for me as its the kind of place that's close to where my ancestors lived and I can imagine its the kind of place they would call home. Its located in a wild and isolated place, it would have been a harsh and bleak landscape to live in at times but in its own way stunning and beautiful. 
      I visited twice in the early part of 2015. The house had obviously been left unoccupied a very long time until it suddenly appeared on the radar. The owners had become aware of this and tried securing it.  On my first visit I noticed a big new shiny padlock was in place on the outhouse. When I returned about a month later the whole door had been smashed. A little later all doors and windows were boarded up, leading to an unofficial renaming by one clever wordsmith as Shroud Cottage. It appears that also didn't deter those with no sense of respect in the search for 15 minutes of Facebook fame. 
      Enough of the backstory and on with the pictures:

      Say "Saltersgate Inn" on our away weekend and the reading is fascinating

      My visit -
      I visited this site recently with two friends that I run the facebook page 0151 Outdoors with, if you are on facebook, give us a like!
      Well, I dont really know if this can be classed as a report, haven't had too much luck on my first few explores, but I'm not letting that stop me.  This time, I arrived on site, and took a few pictures of the exterior before two dodgy blokes of possibly eastern european descent came running around the corner, shouting about how the building is ''TOP SECRET''
      They weren't too frightening, so I grabbed a few pictures as I walked off the grounds, the guy in the last picture told me as I was leaving, ''£10 pictures outside, £20 pictures inside'' but I think I'd rather try again in future, its part of the fun. I dont know how true it is, but apparently the building is now owned by a man from Pakistan, and a lot of bits from inside have been removed.
      Anyway, these are just a couple of the pictures I took of the exterior, shame I didnt get inside as it looks interesting on other peoples reports.
