UK Severalls Church, Colchester, Feb 2016

Recommended Posts

I heard the old girl was coming down very soon (for sure this time I'm told), so it was time for a re-visit to say goodbye to the place. I know, I know, it's far gone and it's had its day, but I like it. Something about those gorgeous corridors, and the way the decay is in this place is just still appealing somehow despite how far gone it is. Not to mention the history... I'm a sucker for an asylum :L 
I'm sure you all know the history, I've done it before, along with half of the internet, but here's a link just incase -http://severallshospital.co.uk/#/history/4532878444
I went round with a friend and three non-members, and didn't really spend much time on shots inside the main hospital, I got so many the first time, just enjoyed the wander really, although my mate was seeing it for the first time, and loved it :) Great day all round, and then, by pure luck, we stumbled upon access to the church, and my day was instantly made. I'm hanging through, with the others calling to me "well? is it worth going in??" Is it heck :D I've been wanting to come across a piano for a while now (I don't know why, I've just been obsessing over it...) and while it's not quite the grand piano of my dreams, an organ is better than 'nout :D (I lagged behind for far too long in here, and could have spent longer just messing with angles and whatnot... the others gave up and left me to it outside in the end... :oops:) The church has certainly survived a lot better than the main building too! But anyway, enough of my rambling, here's some photos :D 










Thanks for looking :thumb

      Hi Gyus
      I came across this place, a few weeks ago, that hasn't been abandoned for long, (5-6 Months), the power seems to be still on too. So I bet it would be mint inside, with everything left in tact. My latest visit was more of a scouting session to check the place out, and get a feel for the place. I noticed some minor vandalism has occurred since my last visit, which is painful to see.

      Tenterden Town railway station is a heritage railway station on the Kent and East Sussex Railway in Tenterden, Kent, England.
      When the railway line first opened in 1900, Rolvenden Station was known as "Tenterden". Its name was changed when the line extended north three years later and a station closer to Tenterden was constructed. The new Tenterden Town station opened on 16 March 1903.The line closed for regular passenger services on 4 January 1954 and all traffic in 1961. It reopened on 3 February 1974 under the aegis of the Tenterden Railway Company which bought the line between Tenterden and Bodiam. The station now houses the KESR's Carriage and Wagon works, and the Colonel Stephens Museum is located nearby.
      So we set out on our explore with a list of places We wanted to check out. After a few not amounting to much and the next couple being total fails, we parked up and regrouped! 
      The  Tenterden site had been on my radar for a while (although I couldn’t be 100% about it’s location) so after a little discussion we decided to take a chance and head out to try and find the Lost Railway and its Train Graveyard.
      We headed toward the closest point by road, parked up and set off along a short path way. The area was really quiet apart from the odd dog walker.  After literally five minutes we knew we were in the right place and could see the abandoned trains hidden amongst the trees.  Access was easy literally a small hop over the fence and down the bank, there they were! 
      Its the first time any of us had ever done an explore of this nature and it was amazing... 
      Anyway here are some of the pictures we took throughout the explore.
      Thanks for reading 😊

      With an ever lasting itch to explore a prison or police station that needed scratching, the time came to explore Brentwood Police Station. Unfortunately solo but a great explore despite!

      So after finding a good access point and choosing my moment wisely between passers by, I found myself within the grounds of the police station and soon inside.
      The building is mostly stripped out and a bare shell but that wasn’t the main sight to see, I had my mind set on finding the cells! After trying every door it was just my luck they were in the last place I looked.
      Attempting the court house adjacent the police station proved unsuccessful.

      An independent members only club, dedicated to the working man who required a certain place for private meetings and events. 
      This place has a little bit of everything. Dark, creepy unlit rooms, and rooms where light was still flourishing through the gaps and crevices. 
      It has had many aliases since the buildings birth in the 1920's and had less than 300 members.
      Along the many years the workmens club was usually packed full of people, to the point you couldn't even move. 
      Slowly but surely however the club started to lose money as members became scarce. It couldn't pay it's own way and since the number of members started dwindling,
      the Workmans club had to close its doors to the few remaining loyal members. 
      Now sits empty and has done for more than 6 years now.
      Hopefully the building can see new life in the near future, but for me it was good to get an unusual view of the club.
      Cheers for looking!
