Have any of you missed a site: somewhere that was torn down, redeveloped or closed off just before you had the chance to visit and look around?
I had a very quick look at this quarry but it was demolished just before I had planned to go back and climb stuff!
Full report is here http://www.lifeoutthere.co.uk/2018/04/18/the-quarry-that-got-away/
What was your "one that got away"?
Ive been dying to get in here for ages, Ive heard so much about the place, seen so many pictures and read so much history, I thought Id never get the opportunity so when I heard that EH were doing tours I though Id dip into my pocket and "Go See", History more than covered by Fortknox and Frosty in their bloody marvelous report ,http://www.oblivionstate.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1925&p=13950&hilit=Dumpy#p13950 , my pics dont do it justice I hate using flash specially when Im surround by 24 other people, so here goes

I battled with myself about whether to post this report or not.
It's like a opening a packet of Revels and coming across the coffee one, it looks great on the outside, very nice, but inside Urrrgh!!!
The Babies Castle was officially opened on 9th August 1886 this institution was for the reception of babies. In 1908 Babies Castle became a mixed home for children under eight years of age. It was particularly used for babies and young children who, owing to their physical condition, were not suited for boarding out.
Babies Castle closed, in 1965 and was re-named, appropriately enough, 'Hawkhurst Castle', after the nearby village of the same name and operated as a private nursing home for the elderly.
In 2006 planning Consent was granted for Babies Castle for conversion to provide a total of 11 residential units
