UK Ysgol Y Bont, Llangefni - Summer 2016

Recommended Posts

The only one of its kind on Anglesey this was a school "for 3-19 year old pupils with severe learning difficulties and complex needs". A brand new state of the art centre has been built nearby as these original pre-fab buildings were deteriorating quickly. The site is earmarked for re-development which looks like it may happen sooner rather than later.


After seeing the potential for an explore I returned when I had more time. There had been a few windows put through by the local miscreants and I feared that the inside might be a bit trashed but not so. Turned out to be a nice relaxed mooch.

Really nice report, it has a very sad feeling to it, seeing all these colours and classrooms, but with out the context of the children.

A colorful, but in a way also a sad place. You've captured the mood / atmosphere very well.

Thanks guys, it certainly was colourful! The main thing that struck me was the silence and thinking how different it would have been full of noise and chatter etc.

      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.
