UK 80's farm house,lancashire,march 2014

Recommended Posts

:D Visited here after being thrown out by security over the road.LOL. was my first day time explore (shame about the weather),was a proper day out. couldn't believe how easy it was to find.

P farm also known as the former home of MR Pym Honorary Consul For somewhere and his family. The property was renovated in 2005 ready for the Pym family to move in. They lived here until 2007. Timber Latvia LTD was a company registered to P farm which was incorporated in 2010 but later dissolved. the property has been on the market for close to a million pound.not loved and not sold! Last occupants left in 2009. An application has been received to demolish existing buildings and build a 48 bedroomed residential rehabilitation centre. Its users would include people with alcohol and drugs dependencies and mental illness.

MARCH 2014 :The Stocks Hall Nursing & Care Group will display its plans for a rehab centre during a public exhibition at Charnock Richard FC.

The application follows the withdrawal of previous proposals to convert green-belt P Farm,, last March, following concerns raised by people about the plans, mainly the treatment of specific conditions that would be offered to patients.

It had been recommended for refusal by council planning officers.

The updated proposals have reduced the size of the building by 12 per cent, and rooms from 48 to 42. Also, the facility no longer proposes to treat those suffering from drug or sexual behavioural 

This 6 bedroomed extended detached house is beautifully situated with breathtaking views over open countryside, set within its own grounds and in approximately 20 acres of land. with stables, paddocks, woodland and extensive gardens. The building had some interesting features but was a mix match of tastes and styles. was well worth the visit. Shame the vandals are hitting such a great bachelor pad!!!!!!!!!!! such a waste sitting empty!!!!!!!!!!!!! sorry for lack of history before consulate i did search :0(





























big thanks for looking guys

not a bad little site, although its set up like an 80's brothel. there was a big cast iron free standing bath here when i first found it and reported on it, i saw a few weeks ago it has since gone! i bet it was a bugger to get out as well.

I can't even begin to imagine what was in the 'architect's' head who designed this hideous place! An explore is an explore though and you did good :)

      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. 









      ^^^ Not sure about that!

      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

      This was my first ever trip down a mine. So a massive thanks to @EOA for making it happen and another massive thanks to @monk and his daughter for being excellent guides. 
      It was bloody awesome, I could've spent all day poking around the sheds at the top tbh. Underground however was just amazing. It's bloody big this place so a return visit over a couple of days with many more mine beers is a must. 
      History copied from the ever faithful Wikipedia. Obviously. 
      Maenofferen was first worked for slate by men from the nearby Diphwys quarry shortly after 1800. By 1848 slate was being shipped via the Ffestiniog Railway, but traffic on the railway ceased in 1850. In 1857 traffic resumed briefly and apart from a gap in 1865, a steady flow of slate was dispatched via the railway. The initial quarry on the site was known as the David Jones quarry which was the highest and most easterly of what became the extensive Maenofferen complex.
      In 1861 the Maenofferen Slate Quarry Co. Ltd. was incorporated, producing around 400 tons of slate that year. The company leased a wharf at Porthmadog in 1862 and shipped 181 tons of finished slate over the Ffestiniog Railway the following year.
      During the nineteenth century the quarry flourished and expanded, extending its workings underground and further downhill towards Blaenau Ffestiniog. By 1897 it employed 429 people with almost half of those working underground. The Ffestiniog Railway remained the quarry's major transport outlet for its products, but there was no direct connection from it to the Ffestiniog's terminus at Duffws. Instead slate was sent via the Rhiwbach Tramway which ran through the quarry. This incurred extra shipping costs that rival quarries did not have to bear.
      In 1908 the company leased wharf space at Minffordd, installing turntables and siding to allow finished slates to be transshipped to the standard gauge railway there.
      In 1920 the company solved its high shipping costs by building a new incline connecting its mill to the Votty & Bowydd quarry and reaching agreement to ship its products via that company's incline connection to the Ffestiniog Railway at Duffws.
      Modern untopping operations at Maenofferen. The uncovered chambers of the Bowydd workings are clearly visible
      In 1928 Maenofferen purchased the Rhiwbach quarry, continuing to work it and use its associated Tramway until 1953.
      When the Ffestiniog Railway ceased operation in 1946, Maenofferen leased a short length of the railway's tracks between Duffws station and the interchange with the LMS railway, west of Blaenau Ffestiniog. Slate trains continued to run over this section until 1962, Maenofferen then becoming the last slate quarry to use any part of the Ffestiniog Railway's route. From 1962 slate was shipped from the quarry by road, although the internal quarry tramways including stretches of the Rhiwbach tramway continued in use until at least the 1980s.
      The quarry was purchased by the nearby Llechwedd quarry in 1975 together with Bowydd, which also incorporated the old Votty workings: these are owned by the Maenofferen Company. Underground production at Maenofferen ceased during November 1999 and with it the end of large-scale underground working for slate in north Wales. Production of slate recommenced on the combined Maenofferen site, consisting of "untopping" underground workings to recover slate from the supporting pillars of the chambers. Material recovered from the quarry tips will also be recovered for crushing and subsequent use.
      Anyway onto my poto’s






      My first ever photo down a mine.
