A small bit of Ellington School for Girls, Ramsgate - July09

Recommended Posts

Why a small bit of? Well basically this place is in the middle of a housing estate, we knew it was going to be risky and we weren't wrong. 15 minutes later and we were being brought out of the place by Kent finest law enforcement officers, there were precisely 6 of them and a police dog unit as well. :dunno2: The irritating thing about the whole affair is if it weren't for some pikey following us into the building who was after niking copper, then we'd probably have not been caught. They saw him entering through the same window we'd just climbed through. Police were OK, stop and search and away we went.

I don't know an awful lot about the place, except it's been closed around 2 years, and is set for redevelopment into housing - the building is due to be demolished I believe. I think planning has only recently been approved, so hopefully it'll be there a while longer yet ;)

I only got a few pics that are worth posting, as we only got about half way down the first floor corridor before we got caught. :roll:

      Taxal Lodge - Photographic Report - 2018

      #TaxelLodge Photographic Report - 11th March 2018 Built-in 1904 Taxal Lodge was once the home of Lt. Col. H. Ramsden Jodrell, Who passed away in 1950.
      The home became a Special School, for disruptive and emotionally disturbed kids that lived on site 5 days a week. It replaced an older Taxal Lodge that originally stood further up the valley. 

      Over the years there have been various reports of abuse within the school and a lot of visitors and students claim that the lodge is haunted. 
      Once the plug was pulled by the authorities the school was closed in 2005. Since its closure, the lodge fell victim to vandals & arson.

      Now other nature has now begun to stake her claim...

      A stunning little Church in the country side of Belgium ...although a little drab on first appearance because of the lack of light and a miserable day outside (doom and gloom)....This little gem turned out to be a winner


      Visited with Critical Mess, Odbin Ravin and Coughed Up......









      Thanks for looking .....Mr.Oldskool

      I have long dreamed of visiting an abandoned school. From what I was able to read on the internet, the school was closed in 2003. After a few years, the facility was reactivated, an environmental center was created. Unfortunately, the plan did not work out. So the little kids marched to another school. The old facility stands and waits ... thousands of people take a course on it like believers on Jasna Góra. It is probably the most recognizable school in Poland, of course those abandoned. My only regret is that only now I managed to come here. You can see traces of demolition ... in the sleeping area where the youngest ones were napping, you can see traces of alcoholic libations. Crosses turned upside down, I personally am not a believer, but I put most of the crosses as it should be. Very childish play, although even the children probably would not do it, because for what. If any of you have plans to visit a school ... do not postpone it for later ... because there is no reason to go. The school has an amazing atmosphere.

      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!
