  1. One of the most random places Ive seen, that TV set is bizarre
  2. Looks like you got some nice views from up there, like the night shots too
  3. You covered this really well & I enjoyed reading up on the history I like it, theres lots left there with some random machines and textiles etc. Those old signs are pretty cool too. I like the fireplace, looks really clean too. The parquet flooring is looking old but still has such a nice effect not to mention its probably worth a fortune! Well done on this mate
  4. thats pretty cool mate! Nice clear, crisp shots as well. I like how the pool is one level and no deep end. Don't find many like that. The giant chess set is pretty random, but reminds me of the time I played giant chess in the states one time. I get the feel that someone just locked up and left one day, never to return. like pic 4, bed still looks sleepable! nice work mate
  5. Thats real nice Andy, REALLY like the first shot! Also like the mummification you found there! Its like he just laid down to die. Looks like a really nice place and the decay has set in nicely
  6. Welcome to the forum, I would agree with @jones-y-gog google is great for finding stuff out, whether thats research or even using the maps to pinpoint locations. I have moved this thread to the welcome section
  7. Thats really nice Andy, like your detailed shots and how plain the place is but with that added grandeur. The bed is pretty spesh!
  8. Thats real nice chick! I love those columns in pic 2. Got a real nice look to it. Like the decay and love that the furniture is still there. Enormous amount of craftsmanship in there, the wood carvings, balustrade & stair are just WOW! Nice
  9. I like that ceiling in the last shot, those green curtains are ace as well
  10. Well, if at first you dont succeed, try and try again
  11. Im pretty sure one of them is called the 'eternal' corridor it goes on so long. I really liked the murals and its nice to see they are still there
  12. That’s really nice Youve got a great set of pics there. Really photogenic place, especially those beds!
  13. Haven’t seen this pop up for a while. Actually looks no different from when I went about 3 years ago. Literally, a bit more decay. I thought they were renovating it? Shame you got caught but nice pics
  14. Some of your pics aren't showing for me either (the first 6). Have you edited the pics at all since uploading them here or changed the location? If you are having trouble updating the thread then please let one of us know who can help Its nice to see this place pop up again. This is one of my favourite explores and from the pics I can see reminds me of why I visited.
  15. What a cool spectator spot for the ring huh! Love how that wooden floor has gone. Thanks for sharing
  16. Such a sad state of affairs when Toys R Us closed. Since that happened, I have always had this misconception that there would one lonely stuffed toy sat on the shelf with no home. I guess not 🤣 Thanks for sharing none the less
  17. thanks for sharing, haven't heard of this place before
  18. Thanks for sharing still some nice bits there, would like to see more of this place if you have more photo's? Those windows are lovely and I like the external architecture
  19. Reminds me of an old school, not a lot of character at all sadly but still like you say, one to tick off the list
  20. This place has really taken a battering over the last few years. Nice to see an update on the place all the same. Thanks for posting
  21. Thats pretty cool, Nice to see something a little different Thanks for sharing
  22. History Brampton Park Officers' Mess is a former country house, then used by RAF Support Command at RAF Brampton. Brampton Park dates back to the 12th century and the house, known as the Grange, was built in 1821-22 to designs by Thomas Stedman Whitewell. It was altered in 1825 by John Buonarotti Papworth. The main part of the house burned down in 1907 and was rebuilt and extended on the east side in red brick to form a symmetrical design. The south facade is constructed from yellow brick and the roof is tiled. The north front of the house incorporates one of the surviving 19th Century wings as its west end and the 19th Century Pump Room survives on the first floor of the north-west wing. During the First World War, the house was used to house German prisoners. At the beginning of the Second World War it was used as the 'Sun Babies Nursery', to house about 100 infants evacuated from North London. In 1942 the house was taken over by the United States Army Corps (HQ 1st Air Division) until 1945-6. In late Spring 1945, Headquarters Technical Training Command moved to Brampton from Shinfield Park. The Grange became the headquarters and the personnel were billeted in the Park. The house was used as the headquarters of various RAF Command and Group Headquarters from 1955 onwards. In 1982 the upper floor of the building was damaged in a fire and in 1987 a refurbishment programme was carried out on the house, completed in 1988. In 2012 RAF Brampton was put for disposal by the Ministry of Defence. The Explore Visited with @hamtagger this had been one we had wanted to visit for a little while and not too far from us either. Pleasantly surprised about the location, still had a RAF feel to it especially over the back of the area where the married quarters are still lived in but the vast majority of the site has been demo'd with masses of new houses built on site to replace the old MOD buildings. What is left is enough though with quite a lot of the features retained, as you will see from the above history part of it burnt down some time ago so I would guess thats why half of it is relatively modern in design. This was one of the most leisurely explores I have had. Having heard that people have had the police rung and escorted off, locals keeping their eyes open for people coming and going we were pretty lucky. In and out unnoticed, just how I like it! Anyway, the pics. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 Thanks for looking!
