Derelict Toilets of the UK, 2013-2018

Recommended Posts

 

 

The Derelict Toilet.

 

AKA the Lavatory, Loo, WC, Crapper, Khazi, Bog, Dunny, Shithouse, John, Cack-Laboratory, Latrine, Little boys room, Ivory throne.

An obsession I didn't realise I had until I was reviewing my pictures after visiting St. Johns and counted 33 images of toilets in various shapes, sizes, and stages of decay. I reviewed photos from previous explores and the toilet image content ratio was hovering at around 15-20%. Like watching the first series of breaking bad in two evenings, or smoking crack, the addiction had crept up on me and by this time it was too late, I was hooked...

From that day forth, I can't help myself and actively seek out these attractive ceramic recepticles. Sometimes I find a lonely toilet, tucked away in an abandoned asylum and I've been overheard saying things like "there there" and "It's OK daddy's here".

It has taken a long time to sift through 1000's of photographs in my dropbox but I'd like to share some of these with you.

My high points have included the multitude of toilets at Severalls and St. Johns, Low points being only able to find one at Sleaford Bass Maltings and worse still, NONE at Wolverton Works.

Please share your own toilet finds below, I'd love to see them

 

The History

We each spend three years of our lives on the toilet. A toilet is a plumbing fixture used for defecation, urination, and barfication.

Modern toilets consist of a bowl fitted with a hinged seat and are connected to a waste pipe where waste is flushed. The Englishman with the unfortunate surname, Thomas Crapper, often gets credit for inventing the flushing toilet, and he undoubtedly was a major player in its development. His valve-and-siphon design was patented in 1891, and his company manufactured water closets that found wide acceptance all over England.

In the decades preceding World War I his toilets imprinted with “T. Crapper Brass & Co., Ltd." inspired a generation of young American soldiers stationed in England during World War I, and they returned to America with a new slang term for the relatively new household fixture.

Here are some of my favourite Ivory delights...

      This was day one of our tour de la derp..
      Fascinating place and many rooms full of allsorts including the basement level with the bits everyone wants to see..
      Visited with sx-riffraff ,Crazy fool and spaceinvader who was having 40 winks back atthe car
      The horror labs is situated in a now mainly converted area so making access not as straightforward as youd like ,but access was gained none the less
       
       







      The light in here as many of you know or have gathered isnt great due to the small window at end of the room so its a bitch to get right



       
       
      Thanks for looking and no doubt i'll have a few more up during the day

      this house always gave me the creeps as i drove by..then i noticed it was abadoned...I asked around and found out A Mrs Coffee live there..known as the town meanie..she had a hard life..her only son was killed in a car accident..her husband committed sucide..she had a daughter but noone knew anything about her...

      The basement held the sad reminders..a buys and girls bike for children long gone...

      the old lady had started hoarding...



      the house was unlivable who knows how she got around


      books were everywhere

      several rooms were so pack all i could do was poke my camera in the door

      that painting came home with me..


      this was the master bedroom..it was impassable


      i think the old lady slept in the bathtub



      now to the really creepy room...judging by the art it looks like late 60s early 70's

      wow weaird as hell..seems the daught noone knew about left as a young child or died with the brother in the same accident...because her bed room is largly unchanged since the 1970s
       
       





       

      A very strange room



      the kitchen was the only toom in the hoiuse that seemed normal

      it was once a nice house..

      i watched as workers picked over the house..i saw them smiling with arm fulls of stuff they decided to keep...i went in a few more times to find it almost completely stripped...i found dolls in unopened boxes..it was near chirstmas time so i took them and out them in the donation boxes for kids..before the other scavangers could grab them..they tore the house down..and quickly built another who sold quickly a new familt now lives on this spot....
       
      I caught several voices thought my walkthough gost of this haunted doll house...makes me wonder if the new house is haunted too...

      A stunning grade two listed gem decaying right on the high street.
       
      Featuring the stunning architecture of Alfred Waterhouse who also designed Strangeways prison the Manchester town hall.
       
      The main building has been used for many different purposes over the years as well as Prudential themselves. And the basement club was once a Berni inns restaurant (Cafe Monico)
      a chain that served a post-war British public such delight's as sherry schooners steak and chips and black forest gateau as well as becoming a dance club in the 90's.
       
      We had a wonderful two hours in this grade two listed time capsule. Hope you guys enjoy the pics as much as we enjoyed the explore.
       
      Thanks for any feedback

      When i was a kid this was known as  Crazy Marys house...The rumor was she froze to death but had pleanty of money to put the heat on....it wasent true..she was a mean old lady for sure who scared the crap out of me screeching  at me when i walked by..Her Husband was a doctor and who killed himself  in the house..he was an old fashiong doctor...back in his day you never went to a hospitol you went to the doctors house...he amputated arms, legs, preformed surgury in the basement..

      He died in the late 1960s his wife in the 1980s...the house has never see anyone stay there for long..they alway seem to move out

      After crazy mary died workers came to clean out the house..my friend knew one and he went in..i was still too scared..he came out with an skeltons skull and jaw...old time doctors used to have them...he lured me in and i saw a room filled with sinks and it was all to creepy for me

       
      its been empty for years..and looters took the starecase and all the copper..

      check out the floors


      a homless person had moved in an kept himself warm almost burning the house down



      For such a big house the doctor never had any children

      Visited on a freezing cold snowy Sunday morning with Scrappy NW and Katy. Long overdue visit this one but access isn't always possible. Inside its dark and decrepit yet enough remains to get an idea of how it looked when it was in full flow. The stage area was a no go as it has now collapsed. Structuraly it was fairly sound even in the upper areas. Things were made to last in 1894 obviously.
      Theatres have so much history and are always wonderful places to explore and photograph even if  their condition is so poor. On with some history.
       
      I'm sure you have all read the history of this pace in other reports but i'll put a brief summary here:
       
      The Burnley Empire Theatre has a profoundly poignant history that starts in the 19th Century when it was first designed by GB Rawcliffe in 1894. Owned and managed by WC Horner, it was a theatre of high regard and continued to such following works in 1911, when the auditorium was redesigned by Bertie Crewe, well respected architect, much of whose work is no longer standing – pulled down to make way for housing, shops or other amenities, or victims of the war that destroyed so many beautiful buildings.
      The interior boasts ‘two slightly curved wide and deep balconies, terminating in superimposed stage boxes framed between massive Corinthian columns supporting a deep cornice. Segmental-arched proscenium, with richly decorated spandrels and heraldic cartouche. Side walls feature plaster panels, pilasters and drops. Flat, panelled ceiling with circular centre panel and central sun burner. Restrained heraldic and Greek plasterwork on balcony and box fronts’ .
      The Theatre opened on Monday the 29th of October 1894 with a variety show and could originally seat 1,935 people.
      During its time as a theatrical venue, Charlie Chaplin, Margot Fonteyn and Gracie Fields are just a few of the names to have appeared on the now broken stage.
       
      In 1938 The Theatre was converted for cinema use by the Architects Lewis and Company of Liverpool, and the seating capacity was reduced to 1,808 in the process.
      Like so many other Theatres around the Country the Empire was eventually converted for Bingo use in 1970 but even this ceased in 1995 and the Theatre, despite being a Grade II Listed building, has been empty ever since and is in serious decline, and listed as one of the Theatres Trust's buildings at risk.
