UK Holme Cottage - Midhopestones - Sep 2016

Recommended Posts



Not much to go by for the history as its really hard to find anything out but what I have found out is that it was built by Sheffield Corporation Water Board at the time they were constructing the nearby Underbank Reservoir which started in June 1890 and was completed in June 1903. 


Holme Cottage is located at the rear of the land with another building at the front which was probably a Forge or Metal Workshop. 


From what we gathered while in the place it was last occupied by an old man whose wife had died many years before upon his death there was no living relatives to claim the house or the belongings so it has just been left frozen in time.

Nice find that. The one shot I found particularly sad was the one with the packets of transparency slide photographs.

      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.
