Recommended Posts

Built in 1808. 

Tucked away in the corner of a public garden and in need of repair

Apart from a grumpy old boy telling me im not supposed to be here it was a nice little place

Oh wow, what an amazing building. It's difficult to imagine what you could do with such a building, so I suppose it's no surprise it is disused. A shame really because it's so nice.

What a beautiful building, I really like the curvature and the windows! Orangeries don't really have much a place today. I only found out quite recently that they are called Orangeries because they used to protect Orange and fruit trees in the winter, who'd have thought?! Basically a posh conservatory! There is an old Asylum in Lincoln where they had one, it was completely taken apart and moved, it now houses crocodiles or alligators at a nearby wildlife park.  Lets hope they save it and it can be a massive something 🤣

      it looks like this place is being cleaned up or there are squatters; a mate went 3 hours after me and there was a guy on site working; alas someone has nicked all the dildos; vainglorious dickheads have also been on site "tagging"
      still some cracking vintage porn to be seen as well as some great items 
      the guy was sure a hoarder

      Some months ago I went to explore this abandoned middle school. Since it is almost completely vandalized, there is nothing special inside (exept maybe for the wooden chair you will see), but what made me so curious about this structure was its architecture, very modern and... unusual for a school. Since it was raining and we didn't have any umbrellas, I couldn't take many pictures from outside; I also tried to climb onto the top, but for the same reason I stayed there only for a few seconds (the camera I was using wasn't even mine and was really expensive, so I was scared to ruin it).
       
      Here is the complete album.
       

       

       
      "-RiP- You were and remain unique, grandpa"
      (I found that chair in that position)

      Whitley Bridge Mill was originally built in 1870s by John and Thomas Croysdale. Powered by electricity and steam, the mill utilised roller milling, a technique that had revolutionised the flour industry. For more than 100 years the mill was owned by James Bowman & Sons Ltd. Bowmans ceased operations at the mill in 2016 after making the decision to move away from flour milling, and the mill was subsequently closed.
       
      Much of the machinery and equipment had been sold at auction, and extensive damaged caused to the building during the removal of the equipment. However enough remained to make this an interesting visit. The building is like a maze, and we kept find more and more bits every time we thought we'd covered the entire place. Visited with @The Amateur Wanderer.

      More roller mills


      The roller mills were the main machinery in the flour milling process




















      One of the few remaining original windows, although now with a metal sheet covering














      The laboratory was quite interesting


      Note the Bowmans logo used to form a pattern in the tiles
