  1. Have any of you missed a site: somewhere that was torn down, redeveloped or closed off just before you had the chance to visit and look around? I had a very quick look at this quarry but it was demolished just before I had planned to go back and climb stuff! Full report is here http://www.lifeoutthere.co.uk/2018/04/18/the-quarry-that-got-away/ What was your "one that got away"?
  2. It might be a useful tool to have a thread dedicated to places that have either been demolished, are in the process of getting demolished or those locations that are being renovated so you can get your skates on and see them. As is the nature of this hobby things can change for a location very quickly, one day you can be exploring it and the next contractors have moved in to tear it down or it gets burned by bored mindless idiots. Over the last year or so we lost a few well known sites, so if you have any of these pencilled into your plans I'd remove them. Other members feel free to add details of places you know are gone, or going, to save people a wasted journey and disappointment. Pianoforte, Roade - totally demolished. Villa Wallfahrt/Das, Belgium - under renovation Val Benoit University Mechanics Institute, Belgium - part demolished, parts under complete renovation. RAF Upper Heyford - pretty much totally demolished, although tours of the semi-live airfield side are still available and highly recommended. Sileby Maltings - being renovated Centrale Thermique, Luxembourg - demolished Angel Croft Hotel, Lichfield - being converted George Dyke Drop Forging, WIllenhall - totally demolished Foster Bros. Mill, Gloucester - totally destroyed in an arson attack Bellerbys College, Wadhurst - being converted These are only from places I visited myself, I'm sure there are many more out there which you guys and girls know of that are recently 'no longer'. It could save someone a wasted trip.
  3. The company was founded as a straw-paper mill in 1859. After the sale in 1873, the production were extended in 1880. The houses for the workers emerged 1912. After the Second World War worked more than 300 employees in the paper mill. Each year, 15 to 20 papermakers were trained. Jobs were lost in 2001, last 115 employees still working in the factory. Finally it was closed in 2007 and demolished in 2011. The photos were taken during an eight-hour exploration five years ago, in April of 2010. Sorry for the many photos. But I wanted to show more, because it doesn't exist anymore. south plant - part one 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 29
  4. An industrial "oldie but goldie". In 1913 started the construction of the power plant. Mid-19th century coal, oil and natural gas supplied energy for the area.

  6. Another place that has now been Levelled... Castle works industrial estate has been many things; W. G. Bagnall the train maker for a start. It was founded in 1875 by William Gordon Bagnall and ceased trading in 1962 when it was taken over by English Electric Co Ltd. English Electric didn't purchase Bagnall directly, the owner at the time was local engine manufacturer Dormans which got taken over by English Electric so Bagnalls was included in the deal. Robert Stephenson and Hawthorns and Vulcan Foundry was acquired in 1955 by English Electric and in 1962 English Electric formed English Electric Traction to bring all railway activities under one set of management. The majority of their products were small four- and six-coupled steam locomotives for industrial use, and many were narrow gauge. They were noted for building steam and diesel locomotives in standard and narrow gauges. Some of Kerr Stuart's designs were brought to Bagnalls when they employed Kerr Stuart's chief Draughtsman. Examples of such locomotives can be seen on the Sittingbourne & Kemsley Light Railway. The company was located at the Castle Engine Works, in Castle Town, Stafford. The factory is currently being demolished. The factory was in a state of disrepair and is being demolished to make way for houses. There was a work-based programme for deliquents on the estate; If you didnt go to school you would go there and learn about painting and decorating or mechanics.There was also a few other local buisness on site GEC, Stafford College inclusive. A couple of my photos were subject to a facebook imposter pretending to be me.... Like he's THAT awesome or something! Such a Mish Mash of buildings.. One of the old Train sheds I believe,
