  1. Yesterday
  2. My uncle , Jim MacDonnell and his wife Jean (Elsie) we’re licencees there circa 1942. My mother was living/working there when my father (who was in the Air Force) , saw her on the stairs and told his friend that he was going to marry her.... and did! Sadly Jean died in a car crash that year too...
  3. Really liking the look of this one. Excellent pictures, thanks for posting
  4. Nice bit of derpage there mate
  5. thanks for the photos, my grandad, jim morris was the landlord of the crofters hotel 1969 - 1982, and is where i started my working life after leaving school in 1976, happy days.
  6. There was lot of other engine parts thrown around.
  7. "the good lord had not prevented people going through the floor boards" - write ups don't get any better than this 😂 Like the look of this place and great set of pics. In the name of the Father the Son and the vacuum cleaner. Amen.
  8. Last week
  9. Nice find, including the random clutch and flywheel.
  10. I refer you to the right honourable member for Lancashire with regards to ukx. Too many hurdles, but life moves on. Yes I'm north Notts although I'm a Yorkshireist with emmerdale inspired sideburns
  11. Thanks guys n gals. Such a great little light trap is this. Loved it, good things in small packages etc, I prefer this to the steel place in all honesty.
  12. This place looks really cool & interesting, and your pics of it are great!
  13. The wooden boat is nice. But honestly, I don't think that the camp looks like it's abandoned. It looks more like a normal place that is still in use from time to time. Even the firewood doesn't look really old, as well as the hanging round structures, which have similarities with "dream catchers". They don't seem to be weathered and also the colors of the wool or pipe cleaners haven't faded yet.
  14. its was probably used for the day it closed, because there were also all kinds of coal mining related things written on it.
  15. Welcome 🙂 Looking forward to seeing some derelict stuff from North Carolina
  16. After that my companion in crime did some great research in this one we went to visit this mine An explore to the deep underground of an abandoned slate mine. Unfortunately, the lower section were completely flooded but still a lot to explore, with wading trough knee deep water. Strange to find a water powered generator down there (it is not a pump). We stayed here for several hours. 1 going down at a 40° angle.

  17. Love this what a little beauty ...great photos
  18. Such a shame ..it must of been stunning in its day ...lovely photos
  19. I wonder why / how the elephant got there. Possibly in this place have been any kind of event or art exhibition sometime in the past, from which the sculpture stayed there? In any case, it's unusual to find such a figure in a colliery, and an extraordinary thing to photograph it there.
  20. That's the reason I was desperately waiting for the chance to visit a Zeche. Love those "Waschkauen" (locker rooms) too! I'm not that much into industrial locations. But I'm absolutely fascinated remembering photos in newspapers like this one: (Quelle: https://www.spiegel.de/fotostrecke/historische-ruhrgebiet-bilder-fotostrecke-106859.html)
