UK The Millennium Falcon, in a galaxy far far away.... May 2016

Recommended Posts

As a Star Wars fan since my childhood and hearing rumours of the Millennium Falcon landing nearby I knew it was my destiny to explore it. We took a BBQ and some beers into the forest of Endor and set up camp. After fending off a few horny ewoks and getting ourselves a couple of hours sleep we woke up to the sound of the Imperial March music coming from my alarm clock. We set about our quest nervously but knowing “fear is the path to the dark side......”

 

Thanks and kudos to @bauhausgirland friends for some helpful tips, lifts and for getting in here first, also thanks to Ash for having the foresight to remember his Jedi cloak, and everyone else who came along for the ride, definitely one of the most fun places I've had the pleasure to explore!  Enjoy

 

1. “You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon?"

2. "It’s the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs."

3. "She'll make point five past lightspeed. She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid. I've made a lot of special modifications myself."

4. "It's true. All of it. The dark side. The Jedi. They're real".

5. "Chewie, we're home...."

6. On entering the ship you would hope to find it like this and maybe sit down for a game of hologram chess or something but it's not quite like that

7. "It's a trap!"

8. The reality is that it's made mostly out of wood and is held together with scaffolding poles

9. However you can just about get into the cockpit

10. "Laugh it up, Fuzz ball."

11. "Punch it"

12. "This bucket of bolts's never gonna get us past that blockade."

26574467573_b301c763de_b.jpg

 

13. "Would it help if I got out and pushed?"

27145732226_89442889c9_b.jpg

 

14. "You came in that thing? You're braver than I thought ..." (This one sounds a bit strange out of context.... :o)

26583222434_7505147525_b.jpg

 

15. The level of external detail is amazing

16. Even the ground on which the ship is sat is fake

17. "What a piece of junk"

27145685416_881ae2a229_b.jpg

 

18. "She's the fastest ship in the fleet."

26573134134_fe7cac2ce1_b.jpg

 

19. "She's the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy!"

26574326863_f81b8964ce_b.jpg

 

20. Ahch-to, the planet where Luke Skywalker was living in exile at the end of The Force Awakens

26914191010_bb20931ca0_b.jpg

 

21. Other vehicles sit waiting to be uncovered, a land speeder amongst other things, not sure what else yet.....

27083572182_c8a9eed266_b.jpg

 

22. "The Dark Side of the Force is the pathway to many abilities some consider to be… Unnatural."  

26585736124_5d7514eea2_c.jpg

 

"Remember...the Force will be with you, always."

      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.
       
       
       
      Thanks

      HISTORY
      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.
       
      EXPLORE
      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!
