UK Leybourne Grange - April 2010

Recommended Posts

Might as well stick these up. Leybourne grange is a shadow of it's former self, actually to be blunt it's f**ked. There's still however a few bits and pieces to be seen. The Manor house is in a much worse state than I thought, and I think it's days are numbered, as with the rest of the complex it's just been left to decay.

Just had a poke around he biggest accomodation block, and the manor house. There's a lot of the other villas still on site, but it didn't seem worth the effort to get inside them.

6. Staircase is about the only part of the main building worth photographing. The rest is a soggy mess of rotton wood, and it smells baaaad!

So its pretty much the same as it was a year or two ago, just a bit more rot! Thought they were knocking it all down?

No idea, it's the first time I've bothered going there and it was pretty much as I thought it would be. I think they are supposedly developing the area into something or other. There doesn't seem much activity on the site however, it's just empty.

Nice photos there mate, yeah the place is wrecked but still some nice bits to photograph. (i sorta like the trashed feel of it, i think it adds to the effect in the right photo)

Great pics, loving the second one down, I have fond memories of this place, visited a few years ago with my daughter, we had such fun dodging the security driving round. Never got into the manor house it was well boarded up when we were there, it saddens me seeing all these buildings decaying and left to rot, and then more apartments. :)

      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.

      After hearing about the permanent closure of this well known super store giant, we felt like a part of our childhood was gone forever.
      In the store we visited, we found the names of those loyal workers written on the wall with one of those people having  worked there for 20 years,
      but unfortunately we couldn't go back and get a photo due to my camera running out of juice.
      But all is not lost as there is a full video on my friend's youtube channel so check it out!
