My first explore of last year, and it was in December¬†ūüėܬ†oh¬†well at least i'm 'back on the horse'. Met up with a local explorer & this was the first of two places we got into that day, the second place looked derelict but kind of wasn't & turns out we were just being tourists in some poor ladys home so probably wont be posting that one on here. This place was a bit of a shell but the decor was erm 'interesting'. And we found a dead bird, which was obviously awesome¬†ūüėĬ†

History stolen from https://www.forgottenisle.com/, a great site documenting all the cool derelict stuff on the Isle of Man.

Shilley Aalin was built in the late 60's/early 70's by The Marquess of Queensberry despite locals protesting the build. It lay empty for some time after she passed away and was then bought and rented in the early 00s. Unfortunately, the group of people that rented it caused a lot of damage, and after they left the property lay empty and deteriorated.

Do you know, why locals did protesting the build? Because of the location (and what bothered they there) or why?

Hideous wood panelling, why did people ever do that!! Although I'd live in that spot it has some lovely views by the looks, unless there's some asbestos factory hidden behind it or something!

I think they protested because it ruins the landscape it's a tacky building & can't argue there haha

Yeah i suppose it was a bit like the Latvian Consulate, except didnt feel as 'seedy' if you know what i mean. And there was no epic swimming pool like in the consulate. Ooooh, did you get a pic of the cat???

      Treading a well worn path to this behemoth of a building 
       
      The foundation stone for Greenbank Drive Synagogue was laid on 14 June 1936 by Baron Tobias Globe attended by the Chief Rabbi of the British Empire, Dr J H Hertz. The building was consecrated on August 15 1937 and opened by Professor Henry Cohen (a member of the congregation and later Lord Cohen of Birkenhead). The basement area of the building was originally used as a youth centre and the synagogue had its own scout troop (the 22nd Wavertree). During the blitz in 1941 Greenbank Drive Synagogue was used as a reception centre for bombed out families in Liverpool and held a non-Jewish service at Christmas. It was also used as a social centre during the war by American Jewish GIs stationed at an air base in Burtonwood, Warrington. After the war they presented a plaque to the congregation (displayed in the entrance hall). In May 1959 a burglar started a fire that destroyed the Ark and Torah scrolls and part of the roof structure. The building was subsequently restored by the original firm of architects at a cost of £50,000 and re-consecrated in 1961. Due to increasing competition the youth centre closed at this time. A further fire occurred in two first floor offices behind the ladies' gallery in 1965 but damage was confined to the former areas. The building ceases active use on January 5 2008.

      A short little report from a little while back.
       
      Without going into too much detail this building is one of the more longer abandonments situated on the ground of a partially used hospital some where in the south.
       
      The ground around the building has been flattened and at the time of our visit workers were at it digging the land up or something like that. 
       
      After sneaking past the workers and into the building we spent a short period inside before the noise of wooden boards being cut filled the area. We got out before we couldn't anymore...

      Built in the 18th century Minera Hall was the former family home of the Dutons a timber importing magnate whose buisness collapsed when japan invaded Burma in WW2 halting the teak trade
      latterly in the later part of the 20th Century the hall became the villabe RBL club and now stands empty and derelict
       
      The dry/wet rot battle spooked me when I first saw it never sen out like it before

      The Site
      Dating back to 1874 these works have produced sodium carbonate common in cleaning products, dyes, fertilizers and other such products.
      The works have been operated under Brunner Mond, Imperial Chemical Industries, and TATA Chemical Europe. The works were also responsible for "accidentally" creating polythene in 1933 during an experiment.
       
      TATA Europe closed these works in 2014 along with the attached power station responsible for power supply.
