UK Rochester Police Station - March 2008

Recommended Posts

Location: Rochester Police Station

Date Visited: March 2008

Present Status: Derelict and Decaying

Future Plans: Not certain, but probably demolition and housing

Rochester police statiion was origenally built sometime in the 50's judging by it's style, and is surprisingly small inside for a major town police station, you can see how they really crammed people into the offices by the number of phone points and desks in each area. It was vacated in 2005/6 when a brand new state of the art police station was opened at Brompton, Gillingham covering the whole of the Medway towns from a single location.

The buildings are in a bit of a state inside due to its location offering the opportunities to local youths to do their best at trashing the building. There was a lot of furnature and other items in the building when we visited, I understand these have now been removed, and the building is more-or-less a shell. The view from the top of the building is brillient, right across medway in all directions. It's pretty much the highest structure in the area.

I expect it will be demolished and housing built on the land, as it's an ideal location for development.

On with some photos.

cant beleive ive never done this place great pics maniac

Probably not worth it now, as apparently it's just a shell inside and is very trashed compared to what it was when I visited.

I did a lot of places in the Medway area when I used to work in Gillingham.

      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!
