Cwm coke- the 16 hour explore 2011/12

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

A few of the photos below are from 2 x 8 hours explores that coincided with weekends of Welsh sport so guard and dog was non existant!! This place is a huge abandoned coke works that is just standing there and is likely to be left in the same way for a long time as its massive! Also very atmospheric to walk around while checking around corners ;)

If anyone wants to come down to sunny South Wales for this place, then let me know.

Some from October 2011 - visited with one of the crew. I feel that looking back, a lot of my earlier UE photos were overprocessed but somethings change over time.

      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!

      Hello, I just joined this forum because my friends and I are traveling out to Choke Canyon SP later this summer and I would like some cool/abandoned places to explore and didn't know where to look, so I came here! Hopefully you all have some good places to share.

      Hi all I'm back again!
       
      Today we went and visited an old boarding school in Chichester. We did not know if the place was abandoned but we got a tip to say it "might" be abandoned. Well...we went to check out this place and my god it has got to be one of the better ones I've been to. No graffiti onsite but just an awesome explore all in all!
       
      HISTORY:
       
      The site itself originally started life as a boarding school and has a full range of classrooms, studios and offices. They had an onsite IT room which could fit up to 20 students at a time and also 2 large greenhouses for training in horticultural skills. The centre itself was very highly-regarded in the area and was built within the grounds of a grade II listed house. It went on to become a residential educational and training centre until the site officially closed its doors in 2011.

      Everyone has a favourite explore. One persons shitty little derp is anothers treasure trove ( in more ways than one sometimes...)
       
      What is your favourite, and why?
       
      I'm an asylum / hospital lad, but mine has to be Fletchers paper mill.
       
      It ticks all the right boxes. Not easy to get into, not completely f00ked, and lots of stuff left.
       
      My only visit was with DHL, and he recommended it to me while we were at the 28DL manc meet. I wanted Whittingham, and whilst I wish I had seen it before It went, boy was he correct!
