UK The New River Arms - January 2017

Recommended Posts

Knowing this place was derelict for quite some time and never finding the oportunity to explore after rumors of local authorities using it for training, I was suprised to find nearly every door wide open.

 

Not letting the chance go I picked a night on a last min decision and made my way in -2c temperatures to The New River Arms.

 

Unfortunately the building has been totally stripped of anything worth seeing and is hard to decide if it’s ready for demolition, redevelopment or just been trashed by kids.

 

Rather strangely the entire building was filled with straw and pretty much nothing but straw. You could almost think you was in an abandoned farmhouse.

The New River Arms had not been successful for a number of years and subsequently lead to its closure.

 


 

The previous owners of the New River Arms public house decided to put the site up for sale after determining that it was no longer financially viable to keep it open as a public house, due to lack of custom

 

Petitions to save the pub had failed and numerous plans for the site had been proposed but have all been rejected since its closure.

      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.
