UK Oakwood Farmhouse - Norfolk - June 2016

Recommended Posts

I don't have any history on this little place except for the fact that it was a farm in a remote village in Norfolk. As you can probably tell I have a little backlog. With various personal events over the last year allthough I have been out a bit I havent had much time to post so catching up on it now :)

Thanks to @Mikeymutt for some details on this place! Helpfl as always mate :thumb 

Visited here with @hamtagger, we had a really relaxed explore with this one. Probably one of the fullest interior wise of the residential places we have visited but stacked with personal memoroes just such a shame to have been left behind. I remember thinking I wouldnt like to rifle through someones personal posessions but it is really nice to build upa picture of the people that once lived here.

Can't remember much else except this was another place welcomed for @hamtagger having an urbex shit. I swear there is not one place we have been to where he hasn't christened the almighty ceramic throne!

 

Anyway, on to the pics

Very nice detail shots. I also like the room with the violet wallpaper and the plants in the corner of pic 5 and the torn curtains in pic 12.

Can't beat a good eeerrbex dump. Personally i like the challenge of counting down from 10 when using a ten-pack of tissues when wiping, but i seem to remember there was bog roll available here :) 

 

I like that marble tin shot, missed that myself (but I always do) and the window one. Looking forward to posting my report from here around 2027 :D

      Thankful there was enough remaining to grab some shots and at the same time have a good giggle
      Splored With Lara,Trog and peaches






      In the back area of the stage Lara found some costumes and the silliness began.
      Beds began to roll up and down the corridors .
       

       
      Better not to ask

      I nearly ran straight into secca.
      At first i thought it was another fool dressed up but as Sindbad
      Then realized he was a Sihk Secca lol

      This fella was either as deaf as a post or turned a blind eye & I wasnt fussed with either.
      As was more to see and we put a bit of distance between us and the now named Turbanator.








      Cheers for looking in

      History 
       
      The engineering company J.E. Billups of Cardiff who also constructed Mireystock Bridge and the masonry work on the Lydbrook viaduct commenced construction of the tunnel in 1872 using forest stone. The tunnel is 221 metres in length and took 2 years to construct. The tunnel allowed the connection of the Severn and Wye Valley railway running from Lydney with the Ross and Monmouth network at Lydbrook. The first mineral train passed through the tunnel on 16 August 1874. Passenger services commenced in September 1875 pulled by the engine Robin Hood.
       
      The history of this section of line is not without incident - a railway ganger was killed in the tunnel by a train in 1893 and a locomotive was derailed by a fallen block of stone in the cutting at the northern entrance in 1898.
      The line officially closed to passenger trains in July 1929 but goods trains continued to use the line until the closure of Arthur & Edward Colliery at Waterloo in 1959 and Cannop Colliery in 1960. Lifting of the track was completed in 1962. The tunnel and cutting were buried with spoil in the early 1970's.
       
      Thanks to the vision and enthusiasm of a group of local Forest railway enthusiasts assisted by Forest Enterprise the top of the northern portal of the tunnel (with its unusual elliptical shape) which has lain buried for 30 years has now been exposed. 
      As of 2018 the tunnel now still lays abandoned with no sign of the cycle track and the £50,000 funding seemingly gone to waste.

      This church had been on my bucket list for a while and I finally got access, granted it happened last year. I don't know a lot of the history of the church, other than the congregation was founded by German immigrats in the 1800s. The origional church burned in the Chicago fire and a new one was constructed in 1904. In the 1910s Polish immigrants moved in and the German congregation declined in membership. It bounced back and years later in the 50s a large Puerto Rican population came in and spanish masses were offered for the first time. Membership throughout the 60s and 70s etc kept declining and in 1990 the church officially closed. The rectory, convent and school were all torn down. As for the chruch a development company owns it and want's to turn it into luxury condos and a music school.

      I first had a look at this spot in 2015. Almost three years on the place has been knocked about a bit and it seemed stripped somehow from the last visit. Did not spend that long in here. As I parked up an old lady drove passed paying more attention to the my car than I liked, so I blasted round in about twenty minutes ☺️ When I came out an old chap drove passed again paying a lot of attention to myself and the car. Country Watch in full swing ☺️ Nice to see the place again but, it did appear to have lost something over the three years.
