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.

Not at all tbh. Loads of empty boxes and empty dvd cases, a few toys r us signs but the snapper ran out of juice so that's why I have put the link to the video if that is allowed.

I appreciate you checking it out though, and I do recommend you watch the video as most of the effort here went towards recording rather than pictures.

And a thumbs up would be appreciated if you enjoy it!

No probs mate, I can't speak for everyone but generally people on the forums prefer the still photograph reports so thanks for posting a selection of both :thumb

Such a sad state of affairs when Toys R Us closed. Since that happened, I have always had this misconception that there would one lonely stuffed toy sat on the shelf with no home. I guess not 🤣 Thanks for sharing none the less :)

I was expecting the same thing! Maybe somewhere there is a faulty one that got returned and left in a box with a missing eye or something 😂  But the one we went to had been pretty much stripped entirely. We did manage to find the names of some of those who worked there for many years on our footage which is cool though. Thanks for looking!

Was such a shame to hear about this, but alas, this is what happens when you dont adapt and change your business with the times.

 

Quite happy to have video reports if they are combined with pcitures, and its better for you as we share them ourselves :)

      HISTORY
      Tenterden Town railway station is a heritage railway station on the Kent and East Sussex Railway in Tenterden, Kent, England.
       
      When the railway line first opened in 1900, Rolvenden Station was known as "Tenterden". Its name was changed when the line extended north three years later and a station closer to Tenterden was constructed. The new Tenterden Town station opened on 16 March 1903.The line closed for regular passenger services on 4 January 1954 and all traffic in 1961. It reopened on 3 February 1974 under the aegis of the Tenterden Railway Company which bought the line between Tenterden and Bodiam. The station now houses the KESR's Carriage and Wagon works, and the Colonel Stephens Museum is located nearby.
       
      EXPLORE
      So we set out on our explore with a list of places We wanted to check out. After a few not amounting to much and the next couple being total fails, we parked up and regrouped! 
      The  Tenterden site had been on my radar for a while (although I couldn’t be 100% about it’s location) so after a little discussion we decided to take a chance and head out to try and find the Lost Railway and its Train Graveyard.
      We headed toward the closest point by road, parked up and set off along a short path way. The area was really quiet apart from the odd dog walker.  After literally five minutes we knew we were in the right place and could see the abandoned trains hidden amongst the trees.  Access was easy literally a small hop over the fence and down the bank, there they were! 
      Its the first time any of us had ever done an explore of this nature and it was amazing... 
      Anyway here are some of the pictures we took throughout the explore.
      Thanks for reading 😊

      With an ever lasting itch to explore a prison or police station that needed scratching, the time came to explore Brentwood Police Station. Unfortunately solo but a great explore despite!

      So after finding a good access point and choosing my moment wisely between passers by, I found myself within the grounds of the police station and soon inside.
      The building is mostly stripped out and a bare shell but that wasn’t the main sight to see, I had my mind set on finding the cells! After trying every door it was just my luck they were in the last place I looked.
      Attempting the court house adjacent the police station proved unsuccessful.
