Tottenham Park Cemetery Chapel - April 2011

Recommended Posts

Skeleton Key and myself set off to London for an explore that we had tried a fortnight earlier and failed to gain access.

We had an hour or so to burn before darkness and I remembered a derelict chapel that I had seen a week or so before.

Tottenham Park Cemetery is a small private burial ground dating from 1912. At the near the bottom wall sits this beautiful derelict chapel


Couldn't really find much in the way of history on the internet apart from this strange piece....

On the night of Halloween 1968 a graveyard desecration by persons unknown

occurred at Tottenham Park Cemetery in London.

These persons arranged flowers taken from graves in circular patterns with

arrows of blooms pointing to a new grave, which was uncovered.

A coffin was opened and the body inside "disturbed".

But their most macabre act was driving an iron stake in form a cross

though the lid and into the breast of the corpse.

The source is the London Evening News, 2 November 1968




















The entrance to the chapel had a burnt out and presumably stolen car wedged in through the doors

Unusual indeed mate, as the write up says, it was a pop in while we were waiting for it to get dark enough for a second attempt at a pukka splore in Walthamstow.

And guess what, we failed at it :(

      I have found a location close to me in West Yorkshire that has been covered before, the site is nearly completely destroyed but the main barn and some of the out buildings still exist. 
      I enjoyed looking around the site and turning it into a cinematic style video (i hope i aren't hated for it, my last video i posted on here went down well).
      Let me know what you think of the video.

      CAMELOT - Theme Park - Photographic Report - Feb 2018
      This abandoned resort and theme park is located in the English county of Lancashire.
      The park's theme was based on the well-known story of King Arthur and the Knights of the roundtable
      After numerous takeovers, the theme park was purchased by Story Group and leased to Knight's Leisure who ran the park.
      However, it's closure was announced by the operator, in November 2012.
      In August 2014, an application to build houses on the site was unanimously rejected with 261 public objections.
      As of Feb 2018, the park stands empty a former shadow of its glory day slowly but surely falling victim to mother nature.
      A new housing development plan has been submitted, to many a protest from the local residents,
      However, if it does go through the once magical kingdom of Camelot will be lost forever.
      We gained entry into the former petting zoo and made our way to the middle of the park where we were caught by 4 security guards and a static full of dogs.
      Anyway, I hope you can enjoy the pics as its all I was able to get.
      Any feedback greatly appreciated.

      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!

      Colonia IL / Mono Orphanage

      The orphanage was built on the border of Switzerland and Italy. Sadly there doesn't seem to be a lot of information out there regarding this location. From what I've gathered it originally served as an orphanage and at some point in time, it was also used as a summer camp. Despite being closed during the 1970's, it has remained in pretty good condition with minimal graffiti and vandalism. 

      Visited again with @darbians and @vampiricsquid. Unfortunately when we visited the beds had been removed but lucky there was still a lot left to photograph. The chapel was absolutely stunning and it was nice to see that some furniture, including the desks from the classrooms were still there. All in all an excellent location to finish off our Italian adventure.
