Onion Cottage

Hello my Friends,

It’s been a while but I got a few places of interest to put up over the coming weeks.

I got a call from my friend “Shot in the Dark†who had found this site and invited me along, so glad he did

:D

Not a lot of history about this place but it was well worth the journey.

It was essentially two cottages joined together and it seems that two brothers lived there until one died and then eventually the other followed. Both cottages had many interesting items to photograph and seemed like a real blast from the past. There was still a wedding dress in the second cottage we visited.

Sadly my friends did a revisit not so long ago and I have now heard that most of the items have now been burnt out in the back garden. It appears that it will be the owners and not vandals as the site has been part demolished and looks like it will either be redeveloped or the land used for a modern dwelling.

Hope you enjoy

:)

Hello mate cool to see your out and about as know you've been busy.

Cracking place and shots also by the sounds of it glad you got there when you did.

It truly amazes me that in life some times the things we treasure and hold dear in the eyes of others is trash.

Horses for courses I guess but cant help think some go through life wearing blinkers.

Great share cheers buddy

Very nice. Sad to to hear stuff being burned, I treasure old stuff my mum and dad had left as they are my memories of them, but sadly some relatives have hidden lives and secrets, and we don't know the background and what happened, I tend to keep a open mind, glad you got to see it, great stuff.:)

      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.

      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!

      Here are the best photos we managed to get, thanks for looking.
