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)

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

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."

      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,

      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,
