UK Forensic Science Facility, January 2016

Recommended Posts

After seeing this place posted on a few forums it was straight at the top of the list of places to visit. After a few questions and a few leads we had our access and at the soonest opportunity we found ourselves at the site along with the man Uncharted World himself.

 

Once inside the two incredibly secure perimeter fences and inside the building we were over the moon to find everything in mint condition, nothing trashed and still with power! It’s not often these days you get a combination like that.

With Uncharted World guiding us around the site we snapped away exploring everywhere we possibly could from basements (minus the flooded sections) to rooftops.

 

History is virtually non existent on this site due to it’s intended purpose and being relatively recently closed, so no history on this place im afraid. But worry not, there’s plenty of pictures for your viewing pleasure.

Few nice bits and pieces there. Those Sony digital cameras you used to be able to put a 1.44MB floppy disk into those and save the photos to them in the days when memory cards cost a lot of money. How times have changed!

      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,
      C

      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
