UK Colins Barn aka The Hobbits House, Wiltshire - March 16

Recommended Posts

Visited with @-Raz-, @Fatpanda & @R0tt3nW00d

 

Ever since i started this exploration game, some 2 and a half years ago (Really is that all?), this one has always been on the list. So whilst travelling down to @Maniac birthday meet we decided to stop off. It was one of the first things Raz ever showed us, so it begs the question why has it taken so long? The answer to that is i honestly dont know but now ive seen it, it almost feels like the end of an era in exploring for me. The infamous Hobbits House has been seen, and it didn't dissapoint. Being a lover of all things fantasy, i was in my element here. An amazing acheivement to say that it was built by hand by a man who simply had a lot of time on his hands. 11 years it took to build and 40 mins to photograph :thumb

 

On with the photos;

Such a funny little place. Photos look sweet to me, better than the ones I took as far as I can remember. I've ditched the Daily mail link, we hate them with a passion :P

 

:comp:

      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.

      After hearing about the permanent closure of this well known super store giant, we felt like a part of our childhood was gone forever.
      In the store we visited, we found the names of those loyal workers written on the wall with one of those people having  worked there for 20 years,
      but unfortunately we couldn't go back and get a photo due to my camera running out of juice.
      But all is not lost as there is a full video on my friend's youtube channel so check it out!

      Here are the best photos we managed to get, thanks for looking.
