UK Cloud Cottage, Wales, June 2016

Recommended Posts

I've always wanted to come across an abandoned house with Gas Masks from the Second World war still inside, possibly the inner child in me who glorified war growing up, still influencing my interest in that conflict. And with reports of 'Soldiers Widow' being emptied of most things of interest this was the only location that I knew of, that was a maybe. 

So while I was in Wales to guide a friend down a certain slate mine full of cars, I made sure I had plenty of time to stop by here. 

Passing by a very angry looking farmer on the long single road to this location, who obviously knew where we were going, we walked the rest of the way, from where the road ended with haste. Arriving at the house, we found it to be very professionally boarded up, upstairs and down, quite possibly the best i've seen, all reinforced inside too. Fortunately for me, it was still accessible. 

 

Inside it was pitch black and had a family of rats/mice (I didnt see any, but I heard them squealing and saw plenty of droppings). And with a farmer Potentially on his way up to bullock us, I was in and out in 10-15 mins.

I just set my tripod up, plonked it down, shone the torch at the ceiling (so that the light reflected and lit the room evenly) and shot as quick as i could. In hindsight I wish I took more time.

Nice to see this place pop up again. I thought it's days were long gone. Sad to see the state of it now but it's the same with most thesedays.

Some really nice shots, I like the organ one, very beautifuly detailed woodwork on that. Nice clock too.

 

Thanks for sharing :thumb

I can imagine you don't want to stay too long with that farmer behind.

Great location and so much to see! Like 2 and 4 :thumb

Im the opposite @hamtagger I was really into them, and then seeing what happened with Vanity and Sabre with things going missing and trashed it put me right off.

      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.
