UK Covehithe Church - March - 2013

Recommended Posts

After a mess up with directions on a saturday explore decided to go for a walk with Miss CSI on sunday and see this lovely old church, been before and love it every time I see it. :)

Heres some history:-

St.Andrew's church is a partly redundant anglican church in covehithe suffolk, it's grade I listed. Part of the church is in ruins and is under the churches conservation trust. It stands on a lane leading to the sea, which has suffered significant ongoing coastal erosion. The eldest fabric in the original large medieval church dates from the 14th century but most of it from the 15th century. During the civil war of charles 1st much of the stained glass was destroyed. By the later part of that century

the large church was too expensive for the parishioners to maintain, they were given permission in 1672 to remove the

roof and to build a smaller church within it. The pews were 15th Century and the pulpit is 17th century.

Enjoy the pics:-

      A short little report from a little while back.
       
      Without going into too much detail this building is one of the more longer abandonments situated on the ground of a partially used hospital some where in the south.
       
      The ground around the building has been flattened and at the time of our visit workers were at it digging the land up or something like that. 
       
      After sneaking past the workers and into the building we spent a short period inside before the noise of wooden boards being cut filled the area. We got out before we couldn't anymore...

      Built in the 18th century Minera Hall was the former family home of the Dutons a timber importing magnate whose buisness collapsed when japan invaded Burma in WW2 halting the teak trade
      latterly in the later part of the 20th Century the hall became the villabe RBL club and now stands empty and derelict
       
      The dry/wet rot battle spooked me when I first saw it never sen out like it before

      The Site
      Dating back to 1874 these works have produced sodium carbonate common in cleaning products, dyes, fertilizers and other such products.
      The works have been operated under Brunner Mond, Imperial Chemical Industries, and TATA Chemical Europe. The works were also responsible for "accidentally" creating polythene in 1933 during an experiment.
       
      TATA Europe closed these works in 2014 along with the attached power station responsible for power supply.

      Anzio Camp
       
      The Anzio Camp is situated near Leek in Staffordshire.
      The camp was first used by the US Army in 1943, to house troops.

      In 1945/6 the camp was taken over by Polish troops.
      After the war it was used as a civilian settlement by the Poles until 1963/4 when they were moved to a purpose built site half a mile north of the camp
      I cannot find much information on what the camp was used for between 1963 and the early 80's.
      In 1980 the MOD took over the site and it was used as a training camp for Regular and Territorial Army troops and also scouts and cadets.
      The camp closed in 2004 as it was deemed surplus to requirements by the MOD

      It was bought in 2006 by care operator John Munroe Hospital, of Rudyard, with a view to developing a care home.
      But the site was again sold, in July 2007, to a consortium of Courtyard Property Group and Smartwright Developments.
      Planning officers recommended that the planning application is refused on the grounds that the site lies within open countryside on the fringe of the Peak District National Park, which is designated as a Special Landscape Area.
      In 2010 the site was sold again to an Air soft company called first and Only.
