      King’s Hall Southall
       
      Visited with @GK_WAX and @Lavino.
       
      This was a long arsed day but a good un non the less. The lads picked me up just gone midnight for the long drive down south. I’d been to a gig and I was smashed hoping to get some sleep in the car. Fat chance of that. After nailing some greasy takeaway on my way back from town and downing a crate of redbulls I was pretty awake, sobered up and ready for some derpingz.
       
      After gaining access, which was very straightforward we found ourselves a lovely skanky little room to chill out in for a couple of hours whilst we waited for sunrise. Bumped into two other explorers in there who gave @GK_WAX a heart attack LOL!
       
      It’s a pretty cool place this, a lot bigger than what photo’s you see online, but all of the rooms at the back are pretty much the same old derpy office/classroom type and not much character to photograph. It’s amazing that this place hasn’t been shut for as long as it looks because it’s super fooked. Absolutely hammered with pigeons and mountains of their shit. Plaster falling down from every possible point, the floors are all warped like some big shit parquet Mexican wave, but still it is a pretty unique building with some lovely tiling and worth popping over to if you’re around this way.
       
      After here we tried a few other places in the area and on the way back, sadly to no avail. You can’t win em all eh.
       
      So yeah long arse drive home just in time to watch the footy order a pizza and get back on the beers.
       
      History
       
      Located in Southall, Middlesex, in the west of Greater London. The King’s Hall was built in 1916 and was designed by architect Sir Alfred Gelder of Hull. The King’s Hall building has a 3-storey red brick and stone facade. It was operated by the Uxbridge and Southall Wesleyan Mission and it was soon screening religious films.
      By 1926, it was operating as a regular cinema, still managed by the Methodist church.
      The King’s Hall Cinema was closed in 1937. It then reverted back to a Methodist Church use as the King’s Hall Methodist Church. They vacated the building in January 2013.

      This is a spectacular location for sure, surrounded by wonderful dramatic coastline. If you've got time I'd recommend bringing a packed lunch!! You could be watching the waves crash against the rugged cliffs, maybe if you're lucky you might spot a seal or a puffin passing by. 
       
      Here in 1951 plans were set up to build a plant which would extract bromine from sea water and by adding sulphuric acid would then create liquid bromine. The bromine was then reacted with ethylene to produce Dibromoethane which was a key component of leaded petrol. With the phasing out of leaded petrol in the 1990's the plant diversified into other bromine chemicals. Production finally stopped altogether in March 2004.  
       
      Many of the buildings have been demolished but there was enough standing to make this high on my wish list - plenty of natural decay and lots of interesting stuff left on site. Its been fairly undisturbed due to a combination of its remote location, CCTV and onsite security. Sadly though a recent fire has badly damaged one of the buildings (not quite sure which one). 
       
      The photos in this report are a compilation. I had to make a return visit because the first time I somehow missed the conference room and the main attraction for me - the medical area. I really like how much variety there is, hence why there's quite a few pics

      A very early start for this one. And thanks for my invite from the other 2 lads I went with @GK-WAX and @albinojay arrived here in the pitch black early hours. Luckily we didn’t have any trouble finding our way inside. We’re we found ourselves a room to wait for it to come light enough to have a look around. Watching the bustop across the road. That’s one seriously busy bustop. And another 2 guys turned up giving us a surprise we exchanged a few word and we all carried on. Here’s a few photos and history..

      Visited with @stranton And @ACID- REFLUX. Thx to them both for the great time had here.
      Anyways on with the report and pics
      History
      Inhospitable
      Inhospitable is a 700yd culvert which carries the moss brook beneath Collyhurst,
      the infall consists of a 15ft brick arch
      this changes too a10ft brick arch which continues towards the outfall
      which consists of a 7ft brick pipe built 8ft up in a retaining wall.
      Halfway through the culvert theres an overflow chamber with a manual operated penstock,
      once the flow gets too strong the penstock drops blocking the culvert
      this causes the brook too divert along the works
      something which seldon occurs.
      the Works
      the Works is a 700yd overflow which passes alongside and below Inhospitable,
      consists of a 10ft red and black brick pipe.
      This exits the overflow chamber by droping down 2 sets of steps the latter been steep,
      once at the bottom you are at least 70ft below the surface.
      Both the moss brook and the Works discharge too the Irk,
      (one of Manchesters 2 secondary waterways).














      Hope you all enjoy thx for looking..
