UK cwm coke march 2014 (photo heavy)

Recommended Posts

well i thought id go and see what all the fuss was about and set off early in the morning to find the beast that is cwm coke. im still blown away by the size of the place if im honest. there cant be that many places around quit like it. to date i would say it was the best 6 hours of urban exploring i have had.

anyway, i wont say anything about the history as im pretty sure everyone knows it and to be honest i dont know a lot about the place other than its amazing..

hope you enjoy the photos

Brilliant photos, I'm going to have to get my arse back down there :thumb

Thanks buddy, I need to go back as I never made it too the top of the tower. Far too windy that day to be messing around at heights like that lol. Also I got water on my lens and didn't notice so a lot of my better shots from the place are shagged.

      Visited with @albino jay and @GK-WAX and thanks again to jay for doing the driving and I also stole your history mate because I couldn’t find any hope you don’t mind. We was passing by the mill on our way home so popped in for a look. And glad we did I like these old mills. And the demo team were already on site so don’t know how long it has left to stand. So here’s the history and pics..
       
      Steam-powered worsted-spinning mill built around 1850 on Black Brook.
       
      Owners and tenants of the mills have included
      James Nutton & Company [1863]
      John Horsfall & Sons Limited [1896]
      F. K. Adcock & Company [1936]
      Part of the Mills are still standing though no longer used.
      The mill had a 170 ft tall chimney which was struck by lightning in 1967. The chimney was reduced in height – to avoid further strikes – and was finally demolished in March/April 1992
       
      The majority of the Mills were demolished in 2017.

      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
       
      There are a few male voices caught inside one seems like another lanuage

      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.

      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.

      First vid upload for a while, although I have not stopped exploring.
       
      Should be more videos coming up soonish
       
      This gothic mansion was once owned by a doctor who released a mental health patient who sadly went on
      to stab an 11 yr old girl to death. I believe he was pretty much chased out of his home by locals (they may or may not of have had burning torches)
      Nice place though, there used to be more cars, but sadly there gone now.
       
      The car is a 1964 humber super snipe
       
      and yes I know I spelt doctor wrong on the vid title  god knows why
