Built in 1871 but had been refurbished at some point.
Now, I don't do heights.. So I was chuffed to see my mate practically run towards it in excitement and go first. It was pretty high and the grated floor was not ideal if you wanted to avoid looking down.
The tower probably stands around 40-50 ft but exact measurements are unknown at this point.
Apart from the odd clanging of metal under our footsteps and how wobbly it was, it was a good first climb like this for me!
Got some snaps as usual, enjoy!
Hello, I just joined this forum because my friends and I are traveling out to Choke Canyon SP later this summer and I would like some cool/abandoned places to explore and didn't know where to look, so I came here! Hopefully you all have some good places to share.
Hi all I'm back again!
Today we went and visited an old boarding school in Chichester. We did not know if the place was abandoned but we got a tip to say it "might" be abandoned. Well...we went to check out this place and my god it has got to be one of the better ones I've been to. No graffiti onsite but just an awesome explore all in all!
The site itself originally started life as a boarding school and has a full range of classrooms, studios and offices. They had an onsite IT room which could fit up to 20 students at a time and also 2 large greenhouses for training in horticultural skills. The centre itself was very highly-regarded in the area and was built within the grounds of a grade II listed house. It went on to become a residential educational and training centre until the site officially closed its doors in 2011.

Former Latvian Consulate Charnock Richard - Feb 2018
I'm posting this to save you a journey lol, plus I wanted to at least make some use of the time I spent there even if the photos aren't the greatest!
Pemberton farm was the former home of Howard J Pym Honorary Consul For Latvia and his family.
The property was renovated in 2005 and the Pym family lived here until 2007. Timber Latvia Ltd was registered at Pemberton farm incorporated in 2010 but later dissolved.
Since then the property has been on on the market for close to one million pounds, however,
it now lies in a state of utter destruction thanks to vandals and arsonists and almost nothing remains of its former glory.
Unfortunately, that is all the info I could gather on this place and I'm sure you'll agree from the pics it is a no-go,
however, we did find thousands of spent ammunition rounds so if you can then please let me know what you think they are.
