UK Joseph Rank House - Harlow - Jan 2011

Recommended Posts

Joseph Rank House is the tallest building in Harlow at a height of 151 ft (46m)

Once a headquarters for Rank, Hovis Mc Dougal (The bread makers) it is under now construction to turn it into 132 flats

This was my first ever roof and I chose the windiest night of the year so far to visit, the guy on the weather just said that gusts of 85 m.p.h. have been measured, and it felt like it up there!!!

My first ever roof, I don't do height well, but I was surprised to find a 6 foot wall around the perimeter, If you look at photo 4, my mate is standing on a foot and a half tall sealant tin just to be able to see over.

Are all high building walls like this? I don't know, but I'll tell you when I do my next one :mrgreen:

Ha ha, me and kent_urbex walked right past this when we did the Harlow Odeon - we did think about jumping the fence and climbing to the top, but kent_urbex needed to get home.

Pretty clear shots for your first set of rooftop photos, not bad at all. :)

      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.
