UK Cross Roads Cottage, Tadcaster - June 2016

Recommended Posts

Crossroads Farm comprises a Georgian farmhouse with a range of derelict cottages, traditional and modern farm buildings and 120 acres of land. The main farmhouse was constructed in the 18th century and was used as a coaching inn prior to its conversion to a farmhouse.
I spotted this place while in the car with @plod and a member from 28 on the way to a few sites in Tadcaster, so we stopped off to have a brief look around. We only managed to get into a few sections of this and there wasn't much left to see but it was an interesting place to visit. I'm not too sure when this place went abandoned but the interior was very old-fashioned so I'd assume it was quite a while back.

Interesting to see some of this, I swung by a while back but was confronted by a guy cutting the grass and it was for sale at the time if I remember

I like the exterior shots with the plants and the last pic with the rotting wallpaper.

      Hey everyone, so I'm pretty sure everyone's heard of this place so i dont really need to explain much about it, but if you haven't, below is a brief history of Denbigh Mental Asylum.
       
      Grade 2 Listed building.
      Built work started in 1844
      Building work completed in 1848
       
      Built to house up to 200 patients with psychiatric illnesses. In the early 1900's it housed 1537 patients (Approx).
      The hospital had its own farm and gas works.
      Planned for closure by Enoch Powellin the 1960's, however it only began closing in sections between 1991-1995.

       
      Nurses Quarters:

       
       

       
      This is genuinely one of the best condition buildings that i have ever explored.

       
       

       
      Most of the lower floor windows were covered in either ivy or thick vines, so it got quite dark in some sections of the building.

       
      Now for the hospital itself, my personal favorite photos:

      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

      Established in 1926, G.L. Murphy was a family run business and supplied bespoke machinery to the tanning industry, as well as building rag cutting and cable stripping machinery.  The company also provide refurbishment and renovation works for various machinery types.

      Built in 1871 but had been refurbished at some point.
       Now, I don't do heights.. So I was chuffed to see my mate practically run towards it in excitement and go first. It was pretty high and the grated floor was not ideal if you wanted to avoid looking down. 
      The tower probably stands around 40-50 ft but exact measurements are unknown at this point.
      Apart from the odd clanging of metal under our footsteps and how wobbly it was, it was a good first climb like this for me!
      Got some snaps as usual, enjoy!
