  6. Hi guys been a year and i haven't even posted this one this was a fun splore to do, went with @Miss-Anthrope. And the journey began leaving the house at 5 in the morning on a cold winter day to get to this place (the ''Bleeding doors'' were priority today) we arrived at 7:30 managed to see security doing the morning patrol so we waited in the car until we couldn't see him and presumed he had finished his job for the morning, we then climbed the hill and guess who was coming out the door.......................................................... that's right the security guard (being way to thorough for my liking), but lucky for us he had his back to us and was turned around locking a door. We ninja'd past him and into the building we knew where the access point was and we were going right on track until wait oh, bugger its sealed!! After another little scout, and my eagle eye, there was another way! leg ups, a bit of mud and a squeeze but in we go..... Hope you enjoy the pics I wont bore you with the history as this place has been done a lot. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 2nd time we see this guy 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. hope you enjoy it
  7. Went with SK, Miss_anthrope and one non member Everyone knows the history but a quick copy and paste from Battersea.org The proposal to site a large power station on the south bank of the River Thames at Battersea in 1927 caused a storm of protest that raged for years. Questions were raised in Parliament about pollution which might harm the paintings in the nearby Tate Gallery and the parks and "noble buildings of London". Now Battersea Power Station is one of the best loved landmarks after serving London with electricity for 50 years. In the UK during the 1920s electricity was supplied by numerous private companies who built small power stations for individual industries with some of the surplus power generated going to the public supply. There was a bewildering variety of incompatible systems, high cost and jealous competition between the numerous companies. This chaotic situation caused Parliament to decree that electricity generation should be a single unified system under public ownership.It was to be another 30 years before the electricity supply was nationalised. In the interim the formation of the London Power Company was a response by private owners to delay the imposition of public ownership. Set up in 1925 it took up Parliaments recommendation that electricity generation should be in fewer, larger power stations. This led directly to the building of the first super station, to produce 400,000 kilowatts, in Battersea. Sir Giles Gilbert Scott was commissioned to design the building. His other buildings include Liverpool Cathedral, Bankside Power Station, Waterloo Bridge and the classic red telephone box. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

  11. Went with Lara, SK, Miss.Anthrope. History: Wadhurst's first school was built at Pell Hill around 1840 on land belonging to Mr. G.C. Courthope but in 1856 the National School was rebuilt in Lower High Street, now used as a Youth Centre Mr. Charles Bocking was its master but he retired in 1890 when Mr. F.W. Larcombe was appointed headmaster. Originally the school had been divided into Boys, Girls and Infants but in 1910 was reorganised into two departments Junior Mixed and Infants. During the 1930's events were organised to help raise money to build a new Church of England School in Sparrows Green. Building was started just before the Second World War and was not entirely completed until after it ended. In 1941 it was damaged by one of the bombs that fell in Sparrows Green. Situated next to the then Fire Station some of the rooms were used to house weary fire fighters from London who were brought down for a brief respite. There were other schools in Wadhurst. In 1864 a National School was built in Cousley Wood. This school was, until 1970, also used for Church Services. Miss Hannah Page was its first headmistress. It had only four headmistresses during its existence. Miss Marjorie Larcombe, daughter of the Wadhurst C of E School headmaster, was its last. When Cousley Wood School closed in 1949 she joined her sister Gladys on the staff of Wadhurst School. Miss Frances Funge completed no less than sixty one years at Cousley Wood School. At the age of four years she started as a scholar and then went on as an assistant teacher until her retirement. According to old log books supplies were very scarce in the early days. Wadhurst College, a boarding school for girls, at South Park in Mayfield Lane was opened c 1930 by Miss Mulliner. Its numbers grew and other large houses were acquired to house the girls, namely Durgates Lodge, Aston House, and Wigram. In the 1980's the Legat Ballet School joined the establishment and in the early 1990's Wadhurst College was amalgamated with Micklefield School from Seaford and became known as Micklefield Wadhurst. In 1997 it had a further change and is at present known as Bellerbys. Pupils from the college have in the past taken part in the life of Wadhurst. They have helped with bell ringing and senior pupils ran a Sunday School for twenty years. It was a common sight to see the girls walking in a crocodile to church every Sunday morning. During the Second World War, when the Girl Guides were not able to camp under canvas, Miss Gowdie the headmistress kindly allowed the First and Second Wadhurst Companies to hold their summer camp at Aston House, now known as Beech Hill. The girls slept in the house and used the grounds and the swimming pool by day. Many local children had cause to be grateful as this is where many of them learnt to swim. Opposite 'Bassets' in Durgates was a privately owned Dame School which in the 1930's was run for young children by two maiden ladies, Miss Tobitt and Miss Cutbush. This was known as Southlea School. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. Thanks For Looking
