UK Moo Farm, Derbyshire - February 2016

Moo Farm


The Explore


Visited with @Urbexbandoned and my first piece of cottaging. Thanks to @Judderman62 for the info on this one, much appreciated mate. 

Also, thanks to the cows nearby for refraining from charging at us and stomping on our heads. They merely gave us evils instead and moo'd from time to time reminding us that they could be waiting for us around any corner. I didn't get a massive amount of photos here as i decided to leave my tripod in the boot. I struggled with the low light downstairs and came home with mostly blurry messes of pics, twat, but i enjoyed the little time capsule all the same.


The History (stolen)


Built in around 1875 this little farmhouse was a thriving business with cattle producing milk for locals. Since around 1901 a family moved in to the farm, the parents died leaving their children to run the farm. 

The farm has been derelict for some years, I am not too sure how long but parts of it and especially the little trinkets & belongings have been preserved nicely. The farm land around it is still in use by local farmers who use it to keep their sheep and cows on the land.


The Pictures






























Photobombed :D 



As always thanks for looking and feedback always appreciated :thumb

      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.
