UK Dinas Noddfa Chapel, Swansea Nov 2016

Recommended Posts

Recently myself and Landie Man embarked upon a little South Wales roadtrip, as he was given a couple of nights stay free in a city centre hotel down there due to a screw up on their part last year.

 

I have wanted to explore a Welsh chapel for ages, and I had a few on my list but sadly due to a few reasons which I'll go into a little later this was the only successful one, but it is a real good one. We rocked up early on a dull rainy morning, and after a less-than-subtle, very tight and quite noisy entry because of me dropping Landie's bag into the remains of a broken toilet we were in. It took maybe fifteen minutes for it to get light enough to start taking photos, it was a shame it wasn't sunny as it would have been so beautiful to watch the sun come up through the windows.

 

This particular chapel closed it's doors around the end of 2007. Wales is littered with abandoned chapels, it's amazing how many you can accidentally stumble across whilst looking for something else entirely, but sadly a lot of the time they have a very limited scope for available access points. I was more than satisfied with this example though, it's a bit bashed around but that's to be expected for something abandoned the best part of a decade.

Looks interesting. And good to see that the organ pipes have not yet been stolen.

      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.
