UK Eagle house Feb 2012

Recommended Posts

Eagle house, a 27 story tower in central london that stopped construction half way through and has seemed that way ever since, when we went there was no/ no sign of any security but i believe the place has at least one guard these days.

This was one of the first explores i did in london and had not long gotten my hands on a dslr so apologies for the image quality. Also most of the building at the time was pretty empty, so not much worth shooting internally.

how ever.. http://www.pkf.co.uk/pkf/news/press_release/eagle_house_takes_flight_once_again&goto=2&Category=News%20%5E%20views&Subcategory=Press%20releases It looks like work will begin Summer this year so we won't have long left =/

cheers all, really need a return visit to this place before they start construction on it again, one of the few easily accessible high climbs in london left, well from what i've found so far anyway.

work has already restarted on this place mate. I think it started after xmas. Still doable but have been told there is security half way up the building and roof access has changed. Nice shots, its a smart little roof for how easy it used to be. :thumb

      Hey everyone, so I'm pretty sure everyone's heard of this place so i dont really need to explain much about it, but if you haven't, below is a brief history of Denbigh Mental Asylum.
       
      Grade 2 Listed building.
      Built work started in 1844
      Building work completed in 1848
       
      Built to house up to 200 patients with psychiatric illnesses. In the early 1900's it housed 1537 patients (Approx).
      The hospital had its own farm and gas works.
      Planned for closure by Enoch Powellin the 1960's, however it only began closing in sections between 1991-1995.

       
      Nurses Quarters:

       
       

       
      This is genuinely one of the best condition buildings that i have ever explored.

       
       

       
      Most of the lower floor windows were covered in either ivy or thick vines, so it got quite dark in some sections of the building.

       
      Now for the hospital itself, my personal favorite photos:

      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

      Established in 1926, G.L. Murphy was a family run business and supplied bespoke machinery to the tanning industry, as well as building rag cutting and cable stripping machinery.  The company also provide refurbishment and renovation works for various machinery types.

      Built in 1871 but had been refurbished at some point.
       Now, I don't do heights.. So I was chuffed to see my mate practically run towards it in excitement and go first. It was pretty high and the grated floor was not ideal if you wanted to avoid looking down. 
      The tower probably stands around 40-50 ft but exact measurements are unknown at this point.
      Apart from the odd clanging of metal under our footsteps and how wobbly it was, it was a good first climb like this for me!
      Got some snaps as usual, enjoy!
