UK Lord Nelson Industrial est, Visited dec 13

Recommended Posts

]Went for a local mooch around stoke on trent, Plenty of failed industries, bad news for the city not for us! This place was surrounded by diggers and workmen, i have a feeling the site they were working on used to be an old hospital/asylum, now a disposable toilet store, Info in this place is pretty limited but i did find a news paper article...

There were 2 pottery places, a bathroom place, chicken factory and such a contrast of building all in the one place, took us 5 hours and we just about managed it all.

      Little trip to Wales over the weekend with Booie. This was a detour on the way home yesterday. Closed suddenly about 7 years ago and now up for auction. 
      This lovely care home would have looked very grand in its prime no cheap plastic furniture here

      Visited with 3 non members not really knowing much about the place other than it looked pretty cool from the outside. Damp and water damage had done a pretty good job on the place but it was still well worth visiting and the start of an amazing day. 
       

       

       
      History
      Can't really find much on this place but before its abandonment, it was owned by a local water authority in relation to the nearby reservoir of the same name.

      This was the second of two places we looked at, and was one of those 'we probably won't get into this one' places. It's always a bonus when you're pretty much convinced you wont get in then turn up & end up getting in 😀 The place was covered with mushrooms (Jews Ear apparently) and mould has taken it's hold on the place, by the time i got to the second floor started to feel a bit queasy breathing it all in, reminded me to get some masks for next time. A pretty cool place, with plenty to see and a variety of 'funky' lampshades... Started losing daylight by the time we reached the 3rd floor so the pics started to get gradually worse.
       

       

       
      History
      Not sure exactly when it opened but it was up & running in the 1930's. In it's day it stood on it's own extensive grounds over 3 acres. The greater portion of this was devoted to sun bathing and recreational lawns. The remainder was largely a kitchen garden which provided fresh garden produce to the tables. 
      Quote from its promotional literature "The views from the bedrooms are delightful. Those on the front and on one side have an open outlook over the sea, the others overlook the golf links and the open country. Your views are in every room open, nothing shuts in any part of BRADDA PRIVATE HOTEL. 'BRADDA' has been entirely redesigned, enlarged, redecorated and refurnished, and is now one of the most beautiful hotels in the Island"
      Unsure exactly when it closed but from what i can tell it was around 2015. 
      A proposal to demolish the dilapidated hotel and erect a residential care home, along with car parking, access and highway alterations, was submitted by Spaldrick Care Ltd in September last year.
      The developer estimated construction of the home would cost £5 million and create 60 full-time jobs.
      Around thirty families objected to the plans, as well as Port Erin Commissioners and the government's planning committee.
      Concerns were raised over the scale of the development, its impact on views, privacy, traffic and parking, as well as its conformity with both the Southern Area Plan, and the all-Island Strategic Plan.
      The plans were initially overruled by the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture. However following a successful appeal by the developer this year, and on the recommendation of the planning inspector, the plans got the green-light.

      Fantastic Fireplaces and where to find them
      A complex of a bungalow; stables and former jockey's cottages one of which is still occupied when I opened the door and found the elderly resident eating his lunch!!! Exit stage right

      So this place has nothing now but  memories and juvenile grafitti 
      The Witch Ball Inn was popular with the army guys in the 1940s, due to its proximity to Prees Heath airfield. In particular the Americans stationed there took a special liking to it. And yet after that there's very little on the place. It boasted an impressive function room and a now filled-in swimming pool,  At some point in the 1980s the building came under new ownership and the name changed to The Cherry Tree Hotel. The swimming pool was actually converted into a fish pond, and a fountain was installed in the bar area. The pub was visited by Michael Cain whenever he was in the area visiting his daughter.  it closed down, around 2005 was boarded up and then was consequentially plundered and trashed.
