Tabor house, braintree

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I drove past this large manor house this evening, was pretty boarded up but quite old and I imagine it's got some gems inside. Currently looking at redevelopment.

On phone at the moment so can't post a Google map image, will do tomorrow.

Thanks @mookster & @hamtagger. Dubbed Navigator, this used to be County High School, once part of the still existing Tabor School in Braintree. It has been used as a few things over the years, Social Services had it at one point but now being redeveloped in to apartments I believe. Good news really as it is such a lovely building and would be a terrible waste. This building really does have a lot of history in the town.

I'm not sure how far the development stage is, but might still be worth checking out.

Here is the link to my thread : http://www.oblivionstate.com/forum/showthread.php/8393-County-High-Essex?highlight=county

and here are a few pictures from inside, possibly one of the nicest halls I have seen. Aside from that, there is not much else i there worth seeing, a strange looking corridor and the bell tower but the exterior of the building is pretty impressive in itself.

They don't operate CCTV here, they have squirrel watch :D15882321304_966f8a5402_c.jpg

Might not have been a bad thing that you kept driving, Braintree is a shithole haha! I have recently moved from there up to Lincs. Glad I got this one done though :thumb

      So this is my first post on this forum, I found out about these houses on a Abandoned Lincolnshire group on Facebook and thought they were definitely worth a trip, but... the first trip wasn't very successful, the address for these houses took us to two houses on the other side of Withcall that were at one point abandoned but have since been knocked down, so after about half an hour of looking around it became very clear the houses weren't there.
       
      After talking to the person who posted them originally and finding out the real location we headed back up to find them. We had to make sure we kept quiet as there is a neighbor attached to the 2nd station house and we weren't sure they'd have appreciated a night time visit from 3 explorers haha. 
       
      Access to the house is easy, the doors being left open is always convenient. Walking around the houses only took 30 minutes or so , but was still a nice little explore. It's one of them places that besides a few repairs and some serious wallpapering, it looks like the family could just walk back through the front door and pick up their lives where they left off which gave the houses a real creepy vibe.
       
      I guess that's all that really needs to be said about these houses. Here's a few pictures:

      An abandoned house along a Belgian road. The house was partly destroyed by a fire and the former owner now resides with family. Some family member comes by occasionaly to feed the stray cats.

      Recently, I´ve visited "Mold House". Of course, more than well-known. When I first set my eyes on pictures of that house with its amazing colours and its state of decay, I instantly fell in love. I´m glad I could fulfill my dream of visiting that place. I especially loved the pink colour of the armchairs being sokaed into the carpet.

      2 visits to this place, this is a kind of mish mash of both trips, first with UAP and second alone


      round the back

      Kitchen


      bit of stair porn




      Now, on the way out I bump into a guy who lives on the estate, after chatting about the history of the place his wife pops along and mentions the mausoleum
      Then proceeds to tell me the route to find it in the forrest !
      Not the biggest of finds but certainly wasnt expecting that wwhen I woke up




      cheers
