UK Eagle house Feb 2012

Recommended Posts

Eagle house, a 27 story tower in central london that stopped construction half way through and has seemed that way ever since, when we went there was no/ no sign of any security but i believe the place has at least one guard these days.

This was one of the first explores i did in london and had not long gotten my hands on a dslr so apologies for the image quality. Also most of the building at the time was pretty empty, so not much worth shooting internally.

how ever.. http://www.pkf.co.uk/pkf/news/press_release/eagle_house_takes_flight_once_again&goto=2&Category=News%20%5E%20views&Subcategory=Press%20releases It looks like work will begin Summer this year so we won't have long left =/

cheers all, really need a return visit to this place before they start construction on it again, one of the few easily accessible high climbs in london left, well from what i've found so far anyway.

work has already restarted on this place mate. I think it started after xmas. Still doable but have been told there is security half way up the building and roof access has changed. Nice shots, its a smart little roof for how easy it used to be. :thumb

      this house always interested me..the yard was filled with junk..old cars..and other junk..it gave the appearence of being abandoned but someone clearly lived there

      the area became prime real estate..mcmansions went up and taxes went up..i knew this houses wouldent last....i went by and saw it was finally empty
      the 1st floor was a neat gloomy  house



      rooms that feel like a horror movie

      all the lights hung poorly..surpised there wasent a fir from them..



       

      see more of that in a bit

      upstairs'


      the upstairs was nthing but an attic...no bedrooms or bathroom..this was a single floor home..



      basement

      a wood burning heater...thats an old way to heat a house



      the last thing still hanging that shows the personality of the owner


      odd old stained glass

      not sure what that is...

      ..the dead and prarie home companion

      This place has been on the radar for a while now but never got the chance to properly take a look. The dome itself can be seen for quite a few miles across the surrounding areas. Not a great deal of information available other than it looks like some sort of water treatment site/reservoir possibly used by the MOD, given the land its situated on. It doesn't appear to be fully derelict either as you can still here the sound of running water and the grass seems to be trimmed.
       
      The explore went as planned, few dog walkers here and there, other than that spent a little while looking around.

      Little house somewhere in Belgium. Seems there lived an 103 year old lady and after a fire on the upper floor she left the house. Her son still comes there every week to feed the cat.

      First things first - this place is a death-trap. Simple as that. And it's quite likely to be worse now than it was when I went. But as I have a bit of an obsession about redundant old cinemas and theatres I left all common sense at the entrance.
       
      The building still shows signs of its grand past but sadly any possibility of saving it looks pretty slim, although a Trust has been set up to try to preserve it and bring it back into use.
       
      The four-storey building, designed by G. B. Rawcliffe, opened in 1894 as a music hall, before being converted to a cinema in 1938. It was last used as a bingo hall in 1995.
