UK Faces Nightclub, May 2016

Recommended Posts

After exploring another nightclub in recent months gone by, it suddenly dawned on me that this place has been standing empty for quite some time now and being close by would be well worth a mooch about.

After watching the place over a few weeks and noticing to let signs go up, quickly followed by scaffolding and boarding I knew we had to act fast before it’s too late.  Local rumour appears to be that the former nightclub is being converted into apartments, though that’s no surprise there!

 

The bad news… it’s now very much stripped of anything even resembling it’s former days have long gone and is now simply a building site.

Snapping a few pictures of the little that was worth seeing, we were made our way back into the darkness, leaving only very dusty footprints behind. There’s plenty of history on the club to be found online but here’s a short snipping of the most “recent” news.

 

In 2013 Faces underwent £100,000 refit, which included an airport-style security scanner on the door, light shows and exclusive VIP booths.

The nightclub was bought by 16-year-old Alfie Best, star of Channel 4s My Big Fat Gypsy Fortune in August, but closed again at the end of October after three months of star-studded events.

As with many, the club’s closing party was marred when police were called following an altercation outside the club.

The teenage entrepreneur’s PA, James Kenneth said that he had sold the club in order to move his business into London.

      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.
