  1. Another season; another backlog, this shiftwork sure makes you a bit slower! I visited this site back at the end of March with Mookster and a non forum member. I have posted several reports after this one, but for some reason this one slipped the net. It was operated by Pilkington Glass up until the 1960's where sand was washed prior to the production of glass. The site is in St Helens, Merseyside and is an absolute mission to get into through mud, undergrowth and then in through a rust water filled basement. Its a wonder non f us fell into the water. I Accidentally shot these in JPEG so the editing is a bit ropey. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9 #10 #11 More At: https://www.flickr.com/photos/landie_man/albums/72157698933151464
  2. My first ever church,and was great to have a mooch about in her,lots of original features,and most important in my view not hit by lead thieves,and people who think its "cool"to trash things....hope it stays like this for years to come..a few picks why not... Thanks for looking...
  3. After an early start with work I was looking for somewhere to go for a nap so I headed to the local supermarket to hide in the carpark and get 40 winks. The first thing I noticed as I pulled into tesco was a fence with "DANGEROUS BUILDING DO NOT ENTER" well this was like a red rag to a bull so I was straight in. Above ground was just a shell but around the side I had spotted a bricked up arch a hole big enough to scramble in, inside was a nice selection of tunnels and arches
  4. Had a busy day today I was waiting for work next to the dam and looking on OS maps when I noticed a little off-shoot at the base of the dam, I got the camera and torches out and headed down to have a nosey. The end is just around that corner but it's a bit tight and my tripod just wouldn't balance so the pic I got was just a blur If you're in the area it's well worth a look
  5. St Helens is a Grade 2 listed Anglican church just outside the village of Biscathorpe The Church was built in 1847 and restored in 1913 The last mention of the church being active that I can find is the online parish records that mentions the Banns Book that finished in 1969 Seats 60
  6. Lovely little church is this. Built 1847, rebuilt 1850 and restored in 1913. It now sits there a little worse for wear with the adjacent vicarage decaying and broken
  7. Not much to say about this one really. Its a church, its hidden away, it hasnt been chaved up and it is a really relaxed explore. Visited on a solo quicky mission in Lincolnshire. here you go.... Thanks for looking, the rest can be seen on my Flickr.
