UK Bob's Cat - Scotland - June 2015

Recommended Posts

Whilst having a scan over my area with Google Maps, I spotted this derp cottage which looked very overgrown, so had a bit of potential. A few weeks later I was in the area and decided to check out to see if it was any good, arriving at the bottom of the track, there was a lovely derp landy waiting for me. Looking from the bottom of the track I could also partially see the roof of a building, my derpy senses were tingling, I had high hopes there might be something good at the top of the track.

A long hike up the overgrown track, I soon found the cottage, well it was fucking shit.

Not even the derp JCB got me interetsed, this being as close as I got to it.

But there was still the Caravan, yes!! Oh the joy of exploring a Derp Caravan, oh the excitement! After walking all the way there I almost did go back down the hill, but since I was there, best take a look.

A little rummage around, there was a few nice bits left behind.

I am 99% sure this is the same cat as in the previous Photos.

Yes you really just did look at an explore of a DERP Caravan, but sometimes it just makes it worth the time to take a look!

Seeing as I was wrong about the Caravan, I decided to look around a bit more, oh a DERP SHED, my luck was defo in !!

It might not look like much, but a bit of research it turns out this bike is a custom built Roberts Road Bike, probably worth a lot of money nowadays!

And what derp explore would not be compete with out a Singer Sewing Machine!

So surely this explore had given me everything it could possible do, but NO, I remembered there being stuff on the Satellite image, further north, so off through the jungle of spikey bushes and low and behold I found another Landie!

Not only a Landie, but a Ice Rink Machine Thing!

That really is it, there was another Landie disassembled and piled up in the grass, a few big trailer fridges etc, but this seemlingly shit find turned out to be a rather good one!

Thanks for looking!!

      I nipped over last night to check the fire damage.
      The only building that was on fire is the St Mary's building (which was a nurses home not a care home as I have written in this report). It has suffered damage to the right hand side of the building but is not totally burned out.

      There is a planning application submitted to demolish most of the buildings on the site including St Edwards. As far as I could see there has been no descision made on it yet.

      I also found this on the net (link below), it gives the whole history and a detailed report on all the buildings. There is still some unseen stuff here notably the chapel within the former St Gerards Hospital which is now offices. If demo goes ahead I'm sure it will become more accesible. It will be a shame to see these buildings go as it's a great urbex site imo.

      Hi All
      As much as we all hate to see our beloved shrines of dereliction, they all eventually either get ripped down or converted
      A lot of these are good, and a lot of them are very, very bad
      What are the best ones you have seen?
      My favourite has to be Nethernene on the hill. Located just down the road from cane hill
      Its a beauty

      Not a lot about this place, I believe the bowling part shut down in 2009 and then the crystal maze part shut down in 2010. Oakwood own this place and have no plans for it besides letting it rot away. Whoever is trying to look after this place is attempting to keep people out. Heard about this place from a different site, easy to find, such a pain in the arse to get into as there's a very tight gap to try and squeeze through..
       
      Thee maze is bigger than first thought, only uploaded a few pictures of that.

      One from the vault. Did a quick search on this one and surprisingly saw very little in the way of reports - so thought I'd share my take on it.
       
      Back in the day this place was quite infamous - mostly it seems due to the few 'bad apples' that lurk within the exploring community. Stories of looting and selling out to the media were rife. 
       
      It is quite a special place for me as its the kind of place that's close to where my ancestors lived and I can imagine its the kind of place they would call home. Its located in a wild and isolated place, it would have been a harsh and bleak landscape to live in at times but in its own way stunning and beautiful. 
       
      I visited twice in the early part of 2015. The house had obviously been left unoccupied a very long time until it suddenly appeared on the radar. The owners had become aware of this and tried securing it.  On my first visit I noticed a big new shiny padlock was in place on the outhouse. When I returned about a month later the whole door had been smashed. A little later all doors and windows were boarded up, leading to an unofficial renaming by one clever wordsmith as Shroud Cottage. It appears that also didn't deter those with no sense of respect in the search for 15 minutes of Facebook fame. 
       
      Enough of the backstory and on with the pictures:
