UK Bat House - Feb 2016

Recommended Posts

When I see abandoned houses, there's always a lot of questions that go through my mind. The biggest one with this was 'why would you not want to live in a house with such an amazing view, which isn't all that remote?' It overlooks a lake with mountains all around. Sure its east facing and could be harsh with little sunshine in winter but even so... 


On the outside the farmhouse has a more new appearance than you'd expect but looks and feels old inside. It is a typical rural Welsh farmhouse with its bits and bobs like tatty notes about livestock, an aga and the ever-present piano. As ubiquitous then as TVs are now. And of course hymn books which show the massive part that chapels had on peoples lives from the 1840's till the 1970's.


Anyway before this turns into a sociology dissertation lets get to the photos -

Some real crisp pics there @jones-y-gog, I'm quite up for a bit of cottaging these days but I wouldn't know where to begin! I can swap you a tunnel or two :P 

We'll have to sort something mate, I'm always on the lookout for new locations!

      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,

      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.
