Recommended Posts

Been visiting this place for many years apart from the old Workhouse buildings which have almost disappeared, today we visited the chapel.

Here are a few pics 

Added an update of the workhouse conditions too.

we visited long before the conversations took place and found some interesting little gems here. Hope you like them.


there are a few of the Mortuary and the head block on the trolleys was very kindly donated to me and is now in the hands of the Margate Museum.

Love how well preserved the place looks, it's almost like people just got up and left and never came back. Find it really odd in a lot of places we explore that things are just left as though there was an emergency. When we did Shredded Wheat Factory in Welwyn Garden City we came across an office with a porno mag and cup on the table like someone had been there recently.


Here are the photos of that desk... anyway great photos, I just have to share on our fb page but will link back to here :)

      This is where Henry lived with his wife Mary and their only child, a daughter. Mary died a long time ago and Henry had to move in with his daughter who looks after him. He is 98 years old. After much persuasion he finally agreed that this, the family home must be sold. 
      Henry was a hard-working man with strong moral principles. He's been a prominent member of his local chapel all his life. Among his paperwork includes a certificate dated January 1940 confirming him on the register of Conscientious Objectors. Interestingly he must have had to attend a formal interview to justify his beliefs so had written prepared answers based on questions he thought the authorities might ask, along with character references.  Also there was a letter dated September 1976 congratulating him on 25 years service to the BBC as a gardener. 
      This is not just an abandoned house - its a home. In this home are meaningful and treasured possessions but also a home full of memories. This was a sanctuary from the outside world, a place to lead a simple life. 
      [Note - I wrote the above in 2017]

      The Brent oil field, off the north-east coast of Scotland is one of the largest fields in the North Sea. Discovered in 1971, it was one of the most significant oil and gas finds made in the UK sector. Brent field production peaked in 1982 when over half a million barrels of oil and 26 million cubic meters of gas were produced… every day!
      The Brent oil field was served by four large platforms owned by Shell – Alpha, Bravo, Charlie and Delta. Each platform has a ‘topside’ which is visible above the waterline and houses the accommodation block, helipad, as well as drilling and other operational areas. The topsides sit on much taller supporting structures, or ‘legs’, which stand in 140 metres of water and serve to anchor the topsides to the sea bed.
      By 1976 Brent Bravo had started production, and later that year the second platform, Brent Delta was installed, which started production in 1977. Delta weighed 24,000 tonnes (the same as 2,000 London busses!) and the platform alone was as tall as the London Eye.
      The Brent field has reached the stage where production is no longer economically viable and decommissioning is underway. In 2011 Brent Delta stopped production. After 5 years of planning and 2 years of preparations, the entire Brent Delta platform was cut free from its supporting legs and brought ashore in one piece, where it will be dismantled and scrapped.

      Hook and winch equipment

      The “doghouse” where drilling operations were controlled

      Heading below deck we find a workshop

      And various plant rooms

      There were various rooms for deployment of workers

      Sick bay

      The workers accommodation was pretty basic

      Central control room

      The engine room was tucked away below the accommodation block

      all that remains of a decoy airfield 
      small bunker type construction with a searchlight mounted on top  and a small room at the back to house a gennerator
      fires would have been light at night at this location to fool the german bombers to target here instead of  the real site a few miles away
      the searchlight platform is now fallien off and just a pile of bricks and metal










      thanks for looking
