 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.

Looks like the place might've been used as a bit of a temporary shooting club or something at some point as those are a shitload of spent shotgun cartridges :)

      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 one was visited on my latest trip through Germany.
      This was the water treatment facility of a power plant. That power plant is already gone. There were also some outdoor water basins ,but they were well overgrown.
      The  only thing I took from this facility were several mosquito's bites.
