  1. History Bowman Thompson & Company originally owned the site but was sold in 1900 to Brunner Mond whom with a seven year closure reconstructed the site producing sixty tonnes of soda ash a day. This figure rose to 800 tonnes a day in 1926 with all of the Brunner Mond assets being turned over to ICI. Lostock a coal fired powerstation was decommissioned in 2000 when E.ON built there new Combined Heat & Power plant at Winnington, Lostock is due to be flattened for a new Sustainable Energy Plant to be built on the site. Explore After no sleep, me and 3 other none members got up and drove down to Lostock, got there quite early (3:45am) didn't hang about, got straight to an access point and got in (side-note, climbing up walls after no sleep isn't the best idea!) spent a good couple hours in here n got loads of footage.. Enjoy.. (Photo's aren't that good but deal with it :)) [Only external I got] [Some industrial stuff?]
  2. The History High Royds Hospital is a former psychiatric hospital south of the village of Menston, West Yorkshire, England. The hospital is located within in the City of Leeds metropolitan borough and was first opened on 8 October 1888 as the West Riding Pauper Lunatic Asylum. In 1988, Jimmy Savile assaulted a patient at the hospital's 100 anniversary celebrations. The hospital closed in 2003 and the site has since been developed for residential use, some of which is in the old hospital buildings The Explore After arriving on site at lunch time ish there were some guys cutting the grass so we decided to go and have a look around spotting numerous other buildings not yet renovated. Went back to the front to see the grass still being cut. After a lovely subway we were deciding not to go back and try somewhere else but we were glad we returned! Loved this place! After trying to get in for just under a year.. It was defiantly worth the wait! Enjoy!!

  4. Not much history other than it shut down back in the 1980's at some point.. Had fun in here very thankful I had someone with me who's been a few times before (none member). Had a blast working our way around all the paths and climbing under and over cave ins.. Love my first underground explore.. Took over 300 pictures.. Only ones I have edited.. Enjoy. Rare Sight
  5. Some good shots.. Never done this play in good lighting always nighttime or really dim inside.. Did you turn on all the lights that worked?
  6. Thanks for the comments guys.. @The_Raw I'll take that into account, thanks.
  7. History : St John's was built between 1890 and 1892 to a design by the Lancaster architects Paley, Austin and Paley. The estimated cost of the church was £6,800 but, because of problems with the foundations, its final cost, including the fittings, was nearer to £12,000 (£1,170,000 in 2015). It provided seating for 616 people.Financial donations towards the site and structure of the church were made by Thomas Brooks, 1st Baron Crawshaw of Crawshaw Hall. Because of diminishing numbers attending the church, and because of thefts of lead from the roof of the church, the congregation has decided to opt for the church to be declared redundant. The church was declared redundant on 20 February 2012. Warning, pic heavy. Outside Alter A few statues Nice curtains I've no idea what this is called Had a bit of fun inside.. Finally..
