  1. Thought I'd share with you my photos using something other than DSLR or HDR or Hideously Processed Pics. Taken on a Praktica Super TL1000 that I bought for £3 out of a box of junk and using a roll of film from the pound shop. Just after I had finished this explore I went to Boots and had them developed on their 1 hour deal This is my first attempt at 35mm and although not the best pics I do feel they show it well. p.s they also appear to look overexposed thanks to my scanner Not much history on this place but this is an old timber/door/window manufacturing site that was used by Jeld Wen Ltd and formerly Boulton & Paul Ltd. Closed in 2010 and now a small part of the site is used by AKD Engineering Ltd. On with the pics Taken In Pitch Black Sneaky Pic of Secca That's All Folks Hope You Enjoyed
  2. Vistied here with Seeker1701. Picked him up on a very very wet morning to recce another site which was a no go so we decided to head to this one. upon arrival all seemed well and we entered the site. I was amazed at how much stuff was left behind and this was just the first building we entered. we continued our explore and by this time the rain has well and truly stopped. in one of the rooms we found a map of the airfield and using google maps worked out where we were on it. we suggested to head for the bomb storage areas but go via the control tower. this is where we ran into a spot of bother. walking to the tower we noticed a group of people in camouflage walking around the top of the tower. as we got closer we noticed some vehicles which we headed over to. as we were looking at them a rather befuddled army sergeant walked over to us and challenged us. we explained who we were and were asked to leave the area as we had just walked straight in to the middle of a military training exercise which had the british army and U.S air force involved. it was at this point our main explore was over but we continued to explore the various old MOD buildings dotted about the site outside the perimeter fence. so a bit of history and a link to more This is just small piece about the start of RAF Sculthorpe. RAF Sculthorpe was built as the second satellite airfield of RAF West Raynham a few miles to the south, the first being RAF Great Massingham. Work was begun in the spring of 1942 and the airfield was laid out as a standard RAF heavy bomber airfield with concrete runways, dispersals site, mess facilities and accommodation. Much of the construction work was completed by Irish labour working for the construction company Bovis. And the link to the rest of the history http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAF_Sculthorpe And now the pics Thanks For Looking Hope You Enjoyed It
  3. Thank you Glad you like it. I didn't mind too much about the camera as I just love the explore. i'm more interested in seeing every little bit and every room than taking loads of pics
  4. Hi Guys and Gals visited here with Adam X and Unexposed Exploration on what was a very cold but dry November day. It started off later than expected due to unexposed still being in the land of nod at the time we were picking him up. when we arrived we headed straight to the access point and then the explore began. after about an hour and a half we realised that the security Michael should of been on duty by then and remarked how he hadn't found us yet. we continued our explore and made a bit more noise than we wanted to but still nothing. unexposed informed us on a way into the admin block which we decided to go for. it was at this point my camera died as this numpty forgot to charge it. :banghead :banghead so a short and limited report but still a report nonetheless time for the history (stolen from Wiki) Severalls Hospital in Colchester, Essex, United Kingdom was a psychiatric hospital built in 1910 to the design of architect Frank Whitmore. It opened in May 1913. The 300-acre (1.2 km2) site housed some 2000 patients and was based on the "Echelon plan" - a specific arrangement of wards, offices and services within easy reach of each other by a network of interconnecting corridors. This meant that staff were able to operate around the site without the need to go outside in bad weather. Unlike modern British hospitals, patients in Severalls were separated according to their gender. Villas were constructed around the main hospital building as accommodation blocks between 1910 and 1935. Most of the buildings are in the Queen Anne style, with few architectural embellishments, typical of the Edwardian period. The most ornate buildings are the Administration Building, Larch House and Severalls House (originally the Medical Superintendent's residence). The hospital closed as a psychiatric hospital in the early 1990s following the closure of other psychiatric institutions. However, a small section remained open until 20 March 1997 for the treatment of elderly patients suffering from the effects of serious stroke, etc., as a temporary building for nearby Colchester General Hospital which was in the process of building an entire new building for these patients. A few of the satellite villas as of 2013 are still operational as research facilities on the edge of the site. This includes "Chestnut Villa" (originally Children's Villa), which provides laboratory services, and "Willow House" (originally Male Acute Ward), and Severalls House (originally the Medical Superintendent's residence). "Rivendell", a more modern building is still in use at the entrance to the site. Apart from Chestnut Villa, all remaining Buildings still in use are owned and run by North Essex Partnership University Foundation Trust (NEPFT). Since 1997 the remaining structures have changed little. Architecturally, the site remains an excellent example of a specific asylum plan. However, the buildings have suffered greatly from vandalism. In 2005 the main hall was subjected to an arson attack and in 2007 the charred building was demolished for safety reasons. The five boilers were removed from the Central Boiler House in 2007. In 2008, the sale of the hospital site, including its extensive grounds, collapsed due to the slow-down in the building industry. And Now The pics Me Being a Rebel And finally the water tower which we didn't attempt Hope you Enjoyed The Report And Thanks For Looking
