UK Triton Court, London - February 2015

Recommended Posts

Triton Court is arranged in three buildings, Mercury, Jupiter and Neptune Houses, internally these elements are arranged around a full height 9 storey central atrium. The building was originally constructed in 1920 with a major refurbishment and extension taking place in 1984. Currently it is being transformed into the Alphabeta Building, an office development contract worth £36 million. The project will see the transformation of 220,000 sq ft of office space for creative, media and technology occupiers with 22,000 sq ft of additional A1 retail and restaurant space on the ground and basement floors.

I came here with monkey after a busy evening of rooftopping and beers. It was late, the sun was coming up and we were really pissed so we didn't hang around for too long. Cool to see London at that time of day though, can't wait for the summer for more of that. We fancied a bit more time up there so we went back up a little less pissed and a bit earlier this time, Slayaaaa came along for this visit too. Access is a bit bait now so if you fancy a pop at it you'd best be quick, much of the scaff has come down and they've removed the sheets which kept you hidden before. We were spotted by a couple of passers by who just waved at us luckily, apart from that it was plain sailing with a tiny bit of climbing to the top.


How it looks without the scaff (not my photo)....


.....and now

      Visited with The Kwan on a rainy Saturday, some lovely bits left in the area and we missed quite a bit so theres always an excuse for a return visit.
      Some History
      The name Ratgoed derives from “Yr Allt Goed”, which means the steep, wooded hillside. Ratgoed mine was also sometimes known as “Alltgoed”. The Ratgoed slate workings lie at the head of what was originally called Cwm Ceiswyr but became known as Cwm Ratgoed because of the quarry. It lies north of Aberllefenni and northwest of Corris in, what is now, the Dyfi Forest.
      The slate that was quarried at Ratgoed was the Narrow Vein. This runs from south of Tywyn, on the coast, to Dinas Mawddwy about 18 miles inland and follows the line of the Bala Fault. The Narrow Vein was worked along its length at places such as Bryneglwys near Abergynolwyn; Gaewern & Braich Goch at Corris, Foel Grochan at Aberllefenni and Minllyn at Dinas Mawddwy. The slate at Ratgoed dips at 70° to the southeast, the same as Foel Grochan.
      Ratgoed was a relatively small working, it was worked from around 1840 until its closure in 1946.

      Taxal Lodge - Photographic Report - 2018

      #TaxelLodge Photographic Report - 11th March 2018 Built-in 1904 Taxal Lodge was once the home of Lt. Col. H. Ramsden Jodrell, Who passed away in 1950.
      The home became a Special School, for disruptive and emotionally disturbed kids that lived on site 5 days a week. It replaced an older Taxal Lodge that originally stood further up the valley. 

      Over the years there have been various reports of abuse within the school and a lot of visitors and students claim that the lodge is haunted. 
      Once the plug was pulled by the authorities the school was closed in 2005. Since its closure, the lodge fell victim to vandals & arson.

      Now other nature has now begun to stake her claim...

      Some pics from this once excellent, now demolished morgue that was part of the Harold Wood Hospital in Essex.
      Not too many locations like this in the UK at present, few and far between!
      Visited in July 2011.

      This was the first stop in Italy with Elliot5200 & @shaddam last month. I don't know any history unfortunately but it's a stunning building and I wouldn't mind living in it! I normally write a lot more than this but I'm not sure what else to say. Oh, we went for a pizza afterwards. Pics:
