UK N.K.P.S: 'Raiders of the lost Ark'.. Feb '14

Recommended Posts

NK discovered this place last year, but we were thwarted in our initial attempts by thick summer brambles and impenetrable boarding!!

Fast forward a few months and a couple of pictures pop up on FB... WHAAAT!!?? WELLIES ON SHORT ROUND, LETS GO!!

'Raiders of the lost Ark'

No deadly booby traps or giant rolling death boulders to hinder our entry, but there was a table against the access point which needed shifting! And it was quite heavy!!

A crackin mooch for a Saturday morning! And ended up with some unexpected company... Nice to see ya lads!! :)

Right... On with the pics which, as usual, are from the pair of us... ENJOY!!

      Visited during a trip to Wales in May with @The_Raw 
      When we arrived, an elderly man was sitting in front of the former church, which is on a private property. I spoke to him and he referred to the owner, who lives in a house behind the chapel. She gladly allowed us to enter the building and take pictures inside. While she got the key, we played with her dog, who was enthusiastic about our occupation with him ...
       
      Siloam Methodist Chapel was built in 1833, rebuilt in 1866 and modified in 1878. The 1886 chapel was built in the Sub-Classical style of the gable-entry type. Siloam closed in 1993 and has since been converted for secular use. The current owner bought the church a few years ago and uses it today as a storage area.

      Back in July, myself and @mookster revisited a site which we both explored back in May 2010 where we piloted my beloved 1978 Land Rover Series III to leafy Surrey.  It was a roasting hot day and as an explorer of a year and a bit, it was an exciting huge factory explore which we spent hours in.
       
      Fast forward well over eight years and we decide to try a few sites around Surrey and London and head here for a revisit.  A lot had happened here in eight years; all documented on crappy YouTube videos and various visits over the year, the site had been torn apart, once secured with guards, fences erected and just pillaged for its innards.  
       
      I'd heard about being a muddy swamp inside in the rain; hardly suprising as it was a cat litter factory producing cat litter mined from Fullers Earth from a quarry on the same site.  
      We arrived on site in a similarly ancient car; my 1988 Volvo 240 GLT on a much hotter day; quite a roasting day.  Perfect exploring weather.
       
      The years had not been good; it was battered, beaten and stripped beyond recognition; not suprising seeing as it shut in 1994. I did not recognise this place at all.  But it kind of had a charm in the summer sun, it looked like the sort of factory you'd explore on GTA Free Roam, or Driver and find Tommy Vermicelli hiding!!
       
      Good to see it again for nostalgia in any case.  
       
      We spent an hour ish here before moving on to London where we ended up sitting in traffic for ages and going to a very tasty place which served bowls of meat gravy with a burger to bathe in it.  Very good it was too!

      Found our way into a small cave in the Yorkshire dales.

      Along the road in the Yorkshire dales we came across many small caves.
      We ventured into some of them, and saw some cool things.
      Next year we plan on returning and Exploring the larger caves.
