  1. This is a fantastic site full of old and new trains and related kit. Swansea council has been trying for ages to get it shut down and has now succeeded. It was close to me so hood_mad and I decided to have a look. There are CCTV cameras in the area, notably, one on the main wall of the workshop building, a really small almost webcam like one and a few normal industrial types on the roof of Morris Bros. Anyway, onto the photos. Under carriage near the entrance to the tracks from the north side. Platform north end. Gritter carriage. Track shot. hood_mad on the way up the tracks. Coming up to the site. View from one of the signal towers Brick tower?? Discreet warnings Main workshop, note camera top left of door. There were loads of carrieages. Inside the blue carriage in the first photo. Engine. Inside locked engine room - shot through holes in the door. Happy & Sad. Crane. Open carriage like in the movies. Burnt out carriage. One of the fires burnt the alloy doors. Signal box. Inside Drivers compartment of one of the newer engines. Largish spider. Cheers for looking. J.
  2. Visited with hood_mad and guided round by captain slow. I've wanted to do this for ages because it's basically right on my doorstep. The history has been done many times before, so I'll just add my photos to the list. The main room. Strip light. Backup light. Gauge. Air vent. Lock for vent. Siren box. Thanks to CS for showing us around. J.
  3. Visited this place with Lynton, Miss CSI, and SteAlTh last year, it has now been sealed up, but a interesting little explore, Enjoy the pics.My camera wasn't the best then, had a cheap old argos number, the others have better ones. The tiny hole we squeezed through. Lots of old bottles and rubbish lying about, we think that when pleasurama was on the site they used to put some of there stuff inside this place. Lots of carvings in the chalk. This was a nice easy explore.
  4. I've been down these tunnels a few times, and always see something different that I had missed on previous visits, it is one of the most peacefull places I have been in, and it's history is fascinating, enjoy the pics. Inspection pit. The old tunnel sign. Enjoy the pics.
  5. I visited this place last year with my daughter whilst visiting relatives, entrance was comical, borrowed a search blaster as we weren't prepared, had a great time, This was still there last time I looked it's in Coleshill, Warwickshire. Enjoy the pics. The main entrance. The flooded boiler house. The kitchen. The hall This ornate work was all around the hall, fantastic. The obligatory radiator pic. One of the many corridors. Some fancy artwork. I now know that this is a training aid, but it scared the life out of me in the dark. Someone left there boots behind. Some of the toys etc and there were lots of books under the stage. Lovely wooden doors into the hall. These made me crack up. Peeling paint. It was a great day out with Miss CSI, well worth a visit if you are nearby.
  6. The subject line is a bit vague as the owners were spot on with us and asked us not to put the location out there. If this report tickles your fancy and you would like to visit, drop me a PM and I'll give you Tims mobile number. The best spot in the site (the room with the drawings / maps) is under lock and key and they were more than happy to unlock it for us. The Chapel. Brick cross on the wall. Shot from the bottom end of the site. Prefab roof joist. Demolished building with urinal and chimney still present. Boiler room on the left of the photo. Close up of the boiler room. These were hanging just above the entrance to the boiler room. Fancy a climb?? Look strong? Not so strong from this angle. Captian slow and hood_mad at one of the locked buildings. Demolished. Other ranks accomodation. Accomodation to the left, toilets to the right. Water storage in the tower visible on top of the building. Lightweight trailer. Officers quarters. Drying room. Two I beams had corroded away leaving only one to support this boiler. Water storage? Fireplace in the NAAFI. This had four fireplaces all using the same chimney. A bit out of focus, but you get the idea. Outside the NAAFI. There were a load of drawings on the wall inside the locked building, est @ about 1950ish. Drawing of a Sea Vampire. You can just make out "Shell" and "Esso" trademarks on these cans. Original Phone. After we'd done the accomodation side, we headed south west to the airfield proper. Shelter identical to the ones at Carew airfield. Underground HQ nearby. (Captain slow has some inside pics.) A great day out, we spent about 5 hours wandering about the site. Again, the site is well open, but if anyone wants above board access or just wants to see the drawings and maps, drop me a PM and I'll give you Tims number. J.
  7. St John the Baptist church has been shut for a while now. Visited this with hood_mad and captian slow (almost). This church has an interesting but sad history. Locally, common legend has it that the architect that designed the church did so with the altar facing in the wrong direction. Apparently when he realised he hung himself in the bell tower. The church is pretty well sealed, there are some entrances, but as time was tight because we were on our way to do the airfield, we didn't go into the main hall, just the crypt and the boiler room. Entrance to the crypt. Open tomb, you can just see the bones. 3 Long tombs and 1 smaller one. Tombs at the end of the passageway, marble topped. Not much here, but the crypt is really spooky, lol. J.
