  2. Thought it was worth going back here to get some new pictures. It was really worth it as some more decay has set in and my photography skills I feel have improved somewhat I was oop north hanging out with Jamie_P for a bit and we decided it'd be a good idea to go and get some explores done, so we contacted Mr de Kay and sorted a plan We did three locations in all and had an awesome time and a very successful day. Photos: Cheers, SM

  4. Visited with an old mate of mine Cunningplan History Dinas Rock Silica Mines The mines behind Dinas Rock were a rather larger affair than their cousins alongside the Nedd Fechan. Several large entrances are still clearly visible from the path which drops steeply down from the top of Dinas Rock to the Sychryd. Note that although they are situated on what is now Forestry Commission access land, none of the mine entrances should be approached due to the danger of rockfall. The underground galleries were very extensive, extending over an area some 1000m x 500m. Parts of the mine are now flooded, others will have become unstable. The material was transported by a series of tramways and inclines and indeed overhead cables suspended on pylons, down to the valley floor and then onward to the Pont Walby brickworks. The former tramway along the southern side of the Afon Mellte is a modern-day bridleway which allows the route to be traced on foot or pushbike. In later days the material was taken to a brickworks at Swansea until the whole operation closed down in the 1960s Thanks for looking

  6. Intro Posted a report of the water tower earlier this year on another forum, I revisited with a friend who had never done Urban Exploring before and found it a lot of fun. I personally like doing a fully thorough report, so if you're easily bored, the photos are at the end . History The Hornchurch facility was officially opened in 1938 as an old people’s home, called Suttons Institution, but soon played a key role in the Battle of Britain – housing RAF airmen during the Second World War. www.british-history.ac.uk said this: St. George's hospital, Sutton's Lane, Hornchurch, was built by Essex county council and opened in 1939 as an old people's home called Suttons Institution. (fn. 152) During the Second World War it was used to house airmen from R.A.F. Hornchurch. In 1948 it was taken over by the Ministry of Health as a hospital and was given its present name. It has over 400 beds, used mainly for geriatric cases. The Ingrebourne Centre, which is an independent part of the hospital, provides psychiatric treatment for 20 resident and many day patients. In 1948 the Sutton’s Lane building was renamed St George’s and turned into a hospital. At this time it had 700 beds. In July 1952 a Neurosis Unit with 20 beds was established at the Hospital in what had previously been the Observation Ward for Warley Hospital. In 1956 this Unit became independent of Warley Hospital and was renamed the Ingrebourne Centre (after the stream running through the grounds). In 1957 the Hospital had 424 beds. By 1964 it contained mainly elderly patients with an average age of 80 years, and some considerably older needing greater nursing care. The Hospital was seriously understaffed, despite efforts to recruit more nurses. Some 329 chronic and aged patients were cared for by 30 full-time and 15 part-time staff (an improvement on the previous year, with 28 full-time and 19 part-time staff). In 1967 there were 422 beds for chronically sick patients and dermatological and neurosis cases. In 1972 the Hospital had 384 beds for the chronically sick, dermatological and physical medicine patients, as well as neurosis cases. Following a major reorganisation of the NHS in 1974, control of the Hospital passed to the Barking and Havering Area Health Authority, part of the North East Thames Regional Health Authority. By 1984 the Hospital had 318 beds and was under the control of the Barking, Havering and Brentwood District Health Authority. In 1991, following another major NHS reg organisation and the introduction of the 'market' system, the Hospital came under the control of the North East London Foundation Trust. It offered respiratory, physiotherapy, heart and stroke services, and in-patient rehabilitation services. By the end of the 1990s the Hospital was under the threat of closure, with a proposal to sell the site for housing. In 2003 the Trust cut the bed complement from 180 intermediate and long-term care beds to 60, for patients recovering from serious conditions, such as strokes or falls. The future of the site was a live issue since at least 2005, when a consultation was launched on whether to refurbish, redevelop or close the hospital. The number of patients being admitted fell that year and bosses considered closing one of the hospital’s four wards. A campaign, led by the then Hornchurch MP James Brokenshire, was organised to halt the closure of St George’s. The consultation was put on hold while the government altered health policy. In 2007, the then head of nursing at the hospital, Lynne Swiatczak, said that the facilities were “not suitable for the care of adults†– and Havering Primary Care Trust clarified that only a rebuild would ensure that the facilities would remain up to the standard that patients expect. But the Recorder recently learnt that only two full building inspections have been carried out at the site in the last 10 years – in 2001 and 2008. In 2009, health chiefs paid about £100,000 for plans for a new high-tech building on the same site and another consultation was launched. Chas Hollwey, then chief executive of NHS Havering, said: “The old hospital is an important historical landmark which is held in great affection,†while adding that the building could not remain in its current state. The £100,000 plans were not acted on and NHS Havering was subsequently abolished and the consultation shelved. Inpatients from St George’s two wards were due to be moved out of the hospital in mid-November, with outpatient services remaining. However, the discovery of Legionella bacteria has now left the hospital lying empty. History thanks to: http://ezitis.myzen.co.uk/stgeorgehornchurch.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Geor...ital,_Havering Future The future of the Hospital is still uncertain. In August 2012 the Trust announced that despite problems with the building, it was intending to redevelop the site and create a new purpose-built health centre. In October 2012 the wards had to be closed because legionella was discovered in the Hospital's water system. The 44 patients were transferred elsewhere - some to the Brentwood Community Hospital, others to Grays Court in Dagenham, while some were able to be discharged. The Out-Patients Department also closed and the Hospital has never reopened. In July 2013 discussions were held with the Havering Clinical Commissioning Group, now the owners of the site after another major NHS reorganisation, as to the possibility of its redevelopment, with part being used for a health centre. The site has slowly been stripped of most of it's equipment, doorframes, doors, furniture, patient memories and some paint. All wiring has gone and fully stripped. Most likely by the owners as it seems to have been removed and not ripped out. On our visit we noticed a few new cameras, sensors and a few new and very recent signs stating to keep out as demolition/dismantling work has begun. There was no evidence of this inside, but the signs looked pretty fresh so this could well be the future of the site. This was taken from a report on the future of the site in October last year (2013): Hornchurch could be robbed of its promised multi-million pound health complex. The GPs in charge of commissioning Havering’s health services have been told they no longer have the power to propose a building development on the St George’s Hospital site – because they don’t own it any more. Instead, they must show a clinical need for the services – and councillors aren’t sure one exists. “All the services they are proposing could easily go into health centres,†said Cllr Nic Dodin, vice- chairman of Havering Council’s health overview and scrutiny committee. “NHS England would be right to refuse the proposal.†As part of this year’s NHS reorganisation, which involved GPs taking over commissioning on April 1, St George’s and its estate in Suttons Lane are now in the hands of NHS England. That means if the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) can’t convince NHS England that there is a clinical need for the site, it could be sold in its entirety. If this happens, the money won’t go back into Havering, as would have been the case before April, but into a central pot. The CCG is confident it can reach an agreement with NHS England that will look similar to its original plans. But with local GP practices muted in their enthusiasm for moving to the new site, it may face an uphill battle. A spokesman for Havering Clinical Commissioning Group said: “We are confident that our original plans for a centre of excellence on part of the St George’s site remain valid and that they represent the best way of providing much needed, joined up health services, particularly for older people in Havering. “We continue to work hard to make the case for the new facility – that hasn’t changed – and are progressing with our plans. “What has changed is simply the way the government now funds these projects. Basically, all property previously owned by PCTs has transferred to a new central body called NHS Property Services.†http://www.romfordrecorder.co.uk/new...ture_1_2847799 Present state of the site The site has been stripped of almost everything, luckily the mortuary fridges are still most in tack and present, the autopsy slab had been ripped and smashed a year ago. All furniture, wiring and equipment has now been stripped and removed. There isn't any signs of metal thievery as roofs and wiring seems to be either in tack or untouched. The buildings themselves are in good condition and there seems to be no subsidence, cracking or natural damage, it'd be a shame if the site was flattened, especially the art deco water tower, hall and administration building. 60% of the windows had been replaced with newer once, not in any particular order, just random windows and some frames didn't even have windows as if part way through being replaced, this seemed a bit strange as there clearly wasn't any construction work going on. The boilers are now gone and probably sold for scrap. Visit Had a good laugh, ducking and diving from security who was oblivious on his phone, few close calls, had to dive in some tunnels at one point and hid in some rooms multiple times. Luckily for us this guy must be pretty chilled out. My friend has just got into photography and I suggested this site as they were interested in Urban exploring, I ended up going with him as I wanted to return for some better shots and to get some decent snaps of the morgue. We happen to arrive just as the guard was patrolling but after we waited it out, we were over the fence (Whilst my friend ripped his trousers) and made a quick dash for the main complex. from then on it was a nice 4/5 hour wander until dark. That Half mile corridor still amazes me. History etc. all stolen from my previous report on another forum. The photos The sun was perfect that day, an awesome golden glow radiated from one side The paint is slowly starting to show it's age Golden corridors Few signs of vandalism Morning frost hiding in the shadows Rays Stairs Green corridors Nature reclaiming The hall More stairs Chairs Sun set Red light is all we had that would light the fridges up enough, didn't turn out too bad though I think And of course, the table Cheers for looking, hope large is an ok file size. Thanks!

  11. Evening all, Another report and another residence/surgery which has been covered many a time and is still somewhere that attracts a lot of traffic.....slowly getting my edits finished from earlier stuff so brace yourselves Lucky enough to go on a last minute trip to Germany in March with a non-forum member as he wanted this place badly so we planned a nice mix of locations and was nice to revisit this one with a lot better light due to the timing of the month and the weather we had all weekend. Docteur Anna, as the legend goes, is still alive in a nursing home. Her husband ran an urology clinic from the basement until a car accident and his untimely death and judging by some of the items in the house and the size of the place, they were quite well off. The house was in a nice affulent spa town and looked like a nice place to live. The revisit since last October shows that the typical moving around/decay of time, etc is slowly destroying this place and new signs telling people to stay away have appeared plus regular sealings seem to undeter those who go for this place. Best during the early morning as there are a lot of people around during the day especially with the hotel overlooking the place. My other report is on here somewhere..... The time spent here was mostly done with the 50mm as its always good to challenge yourself and see something in a different light. On with some photos. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. I sat out on the verannda here and drank my chocolate milk 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. Cheers for looking in.
  12. Despite already doing a report 6 months ago the volunteers have worked so hard the site has changed, more dramtically in the paddington site but armed with a better camera and some very patient volunteers i was able to do this place better justice. The history for williamson is long and muddy; even his tombstone was buried under a car park! If you would like more info drop us an inbox id be happy to link anyone up for volunteer membership.. it gives you access and helps pay for the skips that the volunteers fill bucket by bucket to see what lies beneath! anyway pics.. Paddington site 1st level 2nd level 3rd level this room was previously covered in ash, only the tip of the measuring rule was visible.. Mason street site Willamsons wine cellar, 1st level this section of the wine cellar is actually on top of the banquet hall 2nd level accesssed through a different manhole, the great tunnel; evidenced by an article desribing the local mayor in the early 1900's walking the mile long tunnel. Used by the lancashire army not much information is available.. cavers delight.. entrance to the banquet hall.. lights out the end of the banquet hall Yes I HDR a tunnel.. why? because someone told me you couldnt!
  13. Not going to name it as I don't want it trashing pls dnt ask. was a gud splore with derphouse,MCg,Batz
  14. This was a nice way to kick off 2014 indeed, a return to my favourite industrial explore of last year this time with Landie Man and PCWOX in tow. Sad to see already the place is deteriorating more, I think all the storms took their toll on the roof as a lot more of the skylights are now broken meaning water is dripping down inside in numerous places which isn't great. A nice relaxed wander to begin the year with so all was good, I was trying to find new angles for photos and then realised I overlooked a simply brilliant side room last year with an awesome oldschool workshop complete with everything still inside. Winner!! On with some photos. Sorry for photo overload once again, I love this place. More here http://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie427/sets/72157639695625003/
  15. Evening all, Slowly getting up to date with my locations hence being slow with reports. This was a late July trip with two exploring mates who had never seen Belgium before but have seen the touristy places and like us all, wanted to go and do them. So the three days were a mix of new and old locations and some right corkers. This is nothing new to anyone, was a revisit into the cooling tower at IM. Didn't have my wellies so didn't get underneath but did manage some different shots. Just three here tonight Thanks for looking in.
  16. I previously visited this place around 3 weeks ago but being pushed for time we missed a lot of what St Georges had to offer. After talking to ZeroUE it was arranged that he came up north to grab some of what the NorthEast has to offer and this was the first on the list. So with the 4am alarm set and bag packed it was time to start the engine and get going. After some quite extensive research on the history, I managed to find out alot more . . . Designed by Henry Walsh and Drawn by architect John Cresswell. The wards on the west side were for female inmates while males were situated on the east. Surrounding the buildings were pleasure, kitchens and gardens as well as a stone chapel and brewery. Looking at old maps there also appeared to be a morgue at some point, however this has been demolished at some point to make way for the new road heading to the new St Georges hospital. St Georges was previously known as the Northumberland County Lunatic Asylum and opened in 1859. At this time there were approximately 100 male patients and 100 female patients. By 1888 these numbers had risen to 267 men and 244 female patients, this resulting in additional hospital buildings being built. Later in 1890 the hospital was renamed to County Mental Hospital. In 1937 this name changed again and the name St Georges hospital was adopted. By 1956 the hospital housed 1,257 patients and over-crowding was becoming a serious problem. 29 years later in 1985 this number halved, housing only 600 patients. Today sits a new mental health hospital situated beside St Georges but shares the same name. Fortunately this site at the minute houses no mentally ill patients. A selection of old photographs was also found online, below are two. Other photographs found were featured on a personal website of the patients,nurses and doctors which I do not want to share this images without permission. Il try find the link again if anyone is interested. My previous report can be found here /www.oblivionstate.com/forum/showthread.php/6021-St-Georges-Asylum-Aug-2013 I haven't included any images from this report other than ones I think I improved . . . . First up the main hall, although it isn't in fantastic condition it is great to see it in the condition it is in, apart from the dodgy floor on the right, it was pretty sound . . . One thing I do love about this place is the corridors . . . After walking each corridor in turn we stumbled upon a quite tidy reception area, its surprising how bad some parts of this place is in, then around the next corner all it would take is a quick hoover and dust . . . Oh and a lick of paint . . . Quite close to the above we found this . . . After becoming quite excited and what this could of been, we soon realised it was only a meat fridge, but strangely enough with no kitchens nearby. One image I did re-do is nature reclaiming this bathroom back . . . A quick selection of others from both the west and east wards . . . finally, we found this . . . . One thing i do love about finding personal photos, is all the questions that come with it . . . Thanks D4RK-INS1GHT
