UK Canterbury Cathedral - December 2015

Recommended Posts

Canterbury Cathedral seems to have had scaffolding round it for as long as I can remember. I lived in Canterbury for a while about 6 years ago, and it even had scaffolding round it then. If anything, there's more now than ever and several different routes to choose to the roof, so with it being Christmas and all myself and Sir Jonny P thought it'd be rude not to pop in. 

 

I first visited here back in March with @extreme_ironing but I had camera battery issues so came away with precisely 4 photos. Still I had a good time and planned to revisit it as soon as I could. This turned out to be a full 9 months later, well summer and stuff got in the way. I was pleasantly surprised that pretty much nothing had changed in the time between visits which surprised me, I guess work must be progressing quite slowly.  

 

It's certainly an impressive building up close, they're doing a lovely job on the stone. There's only so many angles you can take of a cathedral, well from this side, we didn't actually venture round the other side on this occasion. It was quite a clear night, but pretty windy!

Cheers. they're actually quite poor really, it was pretty windy so trying to get them to come out in focus on longish exposures was near impossible. Still it was a fun night. :D

      Built in 1871 but had been refurbished at some point.
       Now, I don't do heights.. So I was chuffed to see my mate practically run towards it in excitement and go first. It was pretty high and the grated floor was not ideal if you wanted to avoid looking down. 
      The tower probably stands around 40-50 ft but exact measurements are unknown at this point.
      Apart from the odd clanging of metal under our footsteps and how wobbly it was, it was a good first climb like this for me!
      Got some snaps as usual, enjoy!

      Hi all. We have invested in a new camera and went out during the night to see how well it can handle the low light images. The result was actually rather impressive! So please enjoy the snaps we managed to get.
      It isn't a new area, but it is a good place to get some shots. Feel free to let us know which pic you guys like!

      Keep in touch to see some new places real soon. Cheers,

      Falcon house. It's been in Swindon since the early days of this towns birth and has been sat empty and abandoned for 16 years.  
      It was said to be the very first headquarters for the well known company zurich, an insurance company, but was promptly moved to a more practical and efficient property.
      The old office block is situated in Swindon town centre on top of a car park right near the entrance to town, which is an eye sore to some but a worthy explore for us. 
      There was nothing much left, only old phones and some really old school computer stuff. 
      It was the view at the end of the video that made it all worth it, being the second highest point in the town aside from the john murray building.  What a view! 
      So please enjoy this video by my good friend and make sure to check out the channel! Have fun out there,
      C

      Snowdown was the deepest colliery in Kent reaching well over 3,000 ft (915 metres). It was also the hottest and most humid pit in Kent and was given the name 'Dante's Inferno' by the miners. Regarded by many as the worst pit to work at in Britain, most Snowdown miners worked naked because clothes became too uncomfortable. The miners could consume around 24 pints (14 lires) of water in an 8-hour shift. There were frequent cases of heat stroke.

      Snowdown closed in 1987
