UK Hagley Road, Birmingham - January 2016

Recommended Posts

Happy New Year!:cool2:

 

What a way to kick 2016 off, than with an impromptu trip to Birmingham with @Redhunter and @loocyloo for the night. After surviving public transport (just) up to Oxford to meet a friend we were on the road to Birmingham. Obviously first port of call after arriving was a late night maccies, and after that we set off for our first place. "it's just down the road" my mate said, "it's definitely walkable" yeah no worries buddy.. half hour later and we finally made it. the monumental task of 25 flights of stairs preceded me, and it's safe to say i was fooked by the time i reached the top! It was definitely worth it though, the view was stunning. and what better way to enjoy it than sat on the top with a can of beer:beer2:

 

There's not much history on this place that's worth mentioning - i believe it used to be full of offices, but is now in the process of being turned into uni accommodation. 

 

Kept this short and sweet, didn't really take too many pictures but thought it was worthy of a little share.

      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,

      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

      What's left of the south marston hotel, remains an empty, scorched shell. Not much to see on this one, and I am way to late but hey, it still provides an eerie vibe. And the photos came out pretty good too. Thanks,

      Predannack opened in 1941 as an RAF base, but today is the satellite airfield to RNAS Culdrose - it is a restricted MOD site and an active airfield used daily for flying training and also provides our Fire Fighting training facility. The area is heavily utilised by Culdrose helicopter squadrons, light fixed wing aircraft and, on an occasional basis by other aircraft types including jet aircraft, for a variety of reasons. Predominantly crews are involved in intensive training sorties involving a high cockpit workload. On average there is in excess of 2000 aircraft moves a month at the unit. The airfield is also used by the Fire Training School for live fire fighting and rescue instruction/exercises and there is also a rifle range at Predannack which is frequently used for live weapon firings. Additionally the airfield is used for a variety of additional tasks when the Control Tower is unmanned e.g. gliding.
