UK Duke of Kent, Thanet Way, Faversham-REPORT-10/10/08

Recommended Posts

After seeing a previous post on Broken Britain and living not a million miles away from the site I decided to visit with Trench as back up.

It was most def a creepy place and it has fallen into disrepair. It is a lovely looking building but the atmosphere inside was not right. Creepy to say the least

(I had originally posted this report on BB as a reply ro Trench's report)

The view from the Car Park

The back of the pub, looking up from what is left of the garden. Most of the tiles have fallen of the roof on this part of the pub and has had a serious effect on the inside esp upstairs

A very sorry looking seat

Inside the pub was in a bad way

The old Kitchen?

What is left of the stairs

Would love to have looked up there but the celling above us was full of holes and you could see day light through some of the holes. Anyway the floor we where walking on was in a bad way as it was.

Down to the cellar?

Walking to the Bars we had to walk over this door, it nearly gave way under me, and there isnt much floor left underneath

After hearing what trench thought was a door shutting we decided to go outside. We both took a shot of this window and noticed what looked like a light on inside, I was getting spooked

Leading down to the cellar, by this time the atmosphere inside the Duke had got to me and I didnt want to go down there.

Call me a wimp or a woos, but the pub had an unpleasant feel inside and I certainally didnt feel safe but after going outside the atmosphere improved and I could have stayed there for hours taken pics from outside

This place certainally gave me the creeps. What a great explore, even though we couldnt get upstairs

That's one well and truely f**ked building. I remember seeing the pics on Broken Britain, thanks for posting them here.

I think it's very likely that will be gone soon, it's looking way too badly gone to ever be used as a building again. Mind you, I said that about the prospect Inn near broadstairs, and that was restored and is now part of the big travel lodge there!

Maniac.

Great pics, I visited this as a recckke on the way to a abandoned plane at manston, [don't ask lol] I couldn't get in through window as it was too high up lol, and had a shoulder prob at the time, mind you having looked through window that was enough, there was some weird writing on the wall I believe, did you see that? it does look creepy. :)

Didnt manage to see the writing but I had seen pics of it on BB. There was more writing upstairs, but getting up there was just to dangerous. That whole place just freaked me out

Funny how 'it's recently been subject to a planning application' and then amazingly there's a fire in the old building at roughly the same time, even thou that place must have been empty for over 10 years or more and no one's torched it in that time.

Suspicios, mucho. Will anything be done, I seriously doubt it. :angry2:

      Falcon house. It's been in Swindon since the early days of this towns birth and has been sat empty and abandoned for 16 years.  
      It was said to be the very first headquarters for the well known company zurich, an insurance company, but was promptly moved to a more practical and efficient property.
      The old office block is situated in Swindon town centre on top of a car park right near the entrance to town, which is an eye sore to some but a worthy explore for us. 
      There was nothing much left, only old phones and some really old school computer stuff. 
      It was the view at the end of the video that made it all worth it, being the second highest point in the town aside from the john murray building.  What a view! 
      So please enjoy this video by my good friend and make sure to check out the channel! Have fun out there,

      Snowdown was the deepest colliery in Kent reaching well over 3,000 ft (915 metres). It was also the hottest and most humid pit in Kent and was given the name 'Dante's Inferno' by the miners. Regarded by many as the worst pit to work at in Britain, most Snowdown miners worked naked because clothes became too uncomfortable. The miners could consume around 24 pints (14 lires) of water in an 8-hour shift. There were frequent cases of heat stroke.

      Snowdown closed in 1987

      What's left of the south marston hotel, remains an empty, scorched shell. Not much to see on this one, and I am way to late but hey, it still provides an eerie vibe. And the photos came out pretty good too. Thanks,

      Predannack opened in 1941 as an RAF base, but today is the satellite airfield to RNAS Culdrose - it is a restricted MOD site and an active airfield used daily for flying training and also provides our Fire Fighting training facility. The area is heavily utilised by Culdrose helicopter squadrons, light fixed wing aircraft and, on an occasional basis by other aircraft types including jet aircraft, for a variety of reasons. Predominantly crews are involved in intensive training sorties involving a high cockpit workload. On average there is in excess of 2000 aircraft moves a month at the unit. The airfield is also used by the Fire Training School for live fire fighting and rescue instruction/exercises and there is also a rifle range at Predannack which is frequently used for live weapon firings. Additionally the airfield is used for a variety of additional tasks when the Control Tower is unmanned e.g. gliding.
