Beef

UK Greedy Granny House (visited June 2013) -Oct 2013 - Surrey

Recommended Posts

Not much on the history without giving this one away, this one was simple a house full of crap, looked inviting from the outside though (though no photos as it gives away access)as a fair bit of ivy was really trying to pull the place down and inside was all sorts of really old newspapers and other artefacts from the war era.

This was an interesting way to spend a short time after work.

Cheers guys, sorry not many 'big picture' shots of the place, architecturally it was pretty standard, the stuff in the place made it though. Outside looked good but felt it gave the game away. The name I gave it does that anyway as it was pretty news worthy not so long ago.

*edit* that and don't fancy letting this on out until planning permissions are cleared, so far they are all falling through.

Thats cool have no idea why the urge for people to shout names all over the place.

Has created a lazy splore mentality let alone the closure and theft.

Some shout why the code name.

Feel some do need & some dont to be fair

But Just shout back why the free lunch

Ha no free lunches indeed! Plus giving a place your own name is amusing I find :)

Looks a cool little wander, just that 1943 newspaper alone is a treasure worth seeing! Excellent stuff, lovely report :thumb

      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.
