The House of Decaying Porn... (Visited March 2012) Kent

Recommended Posts

I believe this also may also go under the title of Hoarders House…it’s in a little cinque port town in Kent..some mild HDR..so look away now if that offends…

Friday afternoon..sunny ..blue sky..epic failure on the first location due to me thinking a group of old decaying buildings looked great from the train..turned out to be someone’s stables !..so feeling somewhat dejected after a long walk we were driving out of the town when….

This old place was jammed packed with stuff…we could not get into some of the rooms as they were so full!...

Starting at the top we worked ourselves downwards..the older stuff was on the top floors and we spent a pleasant half hour in one room, the sun streaming through the window looking at some vintage porn…there were boxes of it !..I had a terrible time convincing fellow exploring buddy Kev that we should indeed photograph the rest of the house whilst it was still daylight! ..

The entire place had been ravaged, leaking roof and windows meant a lot of the remaining stuff was mouldy and very decayed..the floors were shot ! Was the perfect end to the week !

Brilliant, every splore location has it plus side, like the sheer size of some industrial splores (Pyestock and Millenium Mills) for example, but it's these forgotten time capsules that fo it for me, I could never pass a derelict house because you just never know whats inside, a bit like a luck dip really

Top shots too

      History
       
      Officially opened by the Earl of Scarborough in 1957, it was built the year before for £350,000 as headquarters for Leeds chemicals and dyestuffs firm Brotherton and Co and was at the heart of a new business area at the Westgate end of The Headrow. It was named in recognition of the famous Leeds city benefactor family, after the Brotherton Library and Collection at Leeds University, the Charles Brotherton engineering and chemical laboratory, the Brotherton Wing at the Leeds General Infirmary and the Brotherton Charity Trust.

      It was dubbed as the design of the future with the “latest external and internal structural techniques, automatic ventilation and ceiling heating”. Its ceilings were reported to be “acoustically perfect”, and its floors covered in highly-polished parquet. It was in 1965 – long before the merging of local police forces and the establishment of the current West Yorkshire force, that the old Leeds City Police took over part of the building and ultimately established its administrative headquarters there.

      In addition to the then Chief Constable and his Assistant Chief, numerous other police departments have been based at Brotherton House over the decades including senior CID, Special Branch, Fraud Squad, Regional Crime Squad, Firearms Registry, Aliens Department, Force Prosecutions, Special Constabulary, Training, Photographic and Fingerprint departments, the then so-called Policewomen’s Department, Pay and Accounts. Most notable investigations to have been carried out at Brotherton house was the notorious "Ripper squad" which was applied to a group of investigators and was the term used by the media for the investigation into the Yorkshire Ripper murders. Including George Oldfield the man in charge of the investigation. Today, the building – which has largely been vacated – overlooks the Leeds Inner Ring Road and is described by its agents as a “substantial high-profile office building with a significant presence.”

      A day out in Leeds, driving on the ring road I noticed a building covered in green fabric... on closer inspection we found out by locals telling us that the building was abandon. Mostly the building is in good condition with a large amount of original features untouched.. the main hall is really something with original parquet flooring and a grand stair case leading into the main building. Corridors lead to open staircases on both sides of the building which offer access to the buildings six floors including rooftop.

      On March 19th 2011, most of the world experienced a 'Supermoon' "A supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the moon's disk as seen from Earth" - Wiki
      Many of my friends from further North in the country said that on that night it was either raining or extemely cloudy but luckily for myself and King Al, the moon provided some extraordinary lighting effects and what better place than a local explore with some decent vantage points from which to photograph it.
      All of these shots were taken over the course of a couple of hours and required extremely long shutter speeds of up to 5 minutes, but are all straight off the camera with no tweaking other than rotation, resizing and cropping.
      Enjoy Fullers with a twist....

      This is a sad little house with a sad history of loneliness and death in a fire, it is of no great size but contains the remnants of a life and is now gradually being overgrown by nature with an unclear future.
