UK The new Falcon House 28th july 18

Recommended Posts

As usual with our explores, they are never really a walk in the park. Access to the building itself was a challenge as the top area in which we needed to go was locked off completely. Thankfully, being quite adapted to the tasks at hand, we managed to ride on top of a lift to gain access to the building. 

Once inside it was clear that the building was in quite a bad state. Natural erosion has started eating away at the 60 year old building, and rust can be found throughout.

Pigeons were lurking in the crevices and the whole place smelt of damp. 

The building was a former office block but has been abandoned for 20 or more years.

Here is some of the best photos we managed to get. Thanks for looking!

I like the sunlight behind the windows. The crooked pictures make a little bit dizzy. ;)

      So this place has nothing now but  memories and juvenile grafitti 
      The Witch Ball Inn was popular with the army guys in the 1940s, due to its proximity to Prees Heath airfield. In particular the Americans stationed there took a special liking to it. And yet after that there's very little on the place. It boasted an impressive function room and a now filled-in swimming pool,  At some point in the 1980s the building came under new ownership and the name changed to The Cherry Tree Hotel. The swimming pool was actually converted into a fish pond, and a fountain was installed in the bar area. The pub was visited by Michael Cain whenever he was in the area visiting his daughter.  it closed down, around 2005 was boarded up and then was consequentially plundered and trashed.

      Stopped off here on the way back from a Birmingham day trip what a stunning site and well worth the detour hope you enjoy the photos
      Tone Mill in Wellington is the last woollen mill in the West Country, with a priceless collection of original machinery still in place in the wet finishing works. The site is of European significance.
      The Prince's Regeneration Trust created The Tone Mill Partnership drawing together local people with an active interest in finding a sympathetic and economically viable new use for the site. Together we are continuing to develop plans that will restore the Grade II* listed woollen mill buildings as a working mill that can also be visited by the public.
      Tone Mill is a listed group of industrial buildings that date from the 18th and 19th Centuries. The site played an important role in the cloth industry in Wellington until the late 20th Century, here the woven cloth was dyed and finished and there is an exceptional amount of surviving machinery that illustrates the way the buildings were used and how the manufacturing process worked. There is no better or more intact example in England of a traditional wet-finishing works.
      Conservation and reuse of these important historic buildings will bring new jobs to Wellington and will provide an exciting visitor attraction. The mill buildings are redundant and at risk and are now the subject of a planning application for conversion. Our project would enable a long-established local business to return to the site and operate the machinery in the traditional way. The Partnership commissioned an Options Appraisal that has evaluated potential heritage-led uses which include providing public access. The Prince's Regeneration Trust continues to work with The Partnership towards its aim of acquiring the site and is optimistic that a successful heritage project can be delivered.

      Hello!
       
      Been abit lazy with uploading explores so heres another one from 2016. Another rooftop (when it was much easier with less Youtube Goons)
       
      Anyways, noticed the scaffold up the side of the building, so after a late shift at work i headed into London for a solo explore. Small roof but the view was awesome
