UK Sarre battle hq explore. - 2014

Recommended Posts

Evening everyone, firstly just want to say hello to everyone as ive been a lurker for a good while just reading threads etc so thought its about time i better join up and post something to contribute.

One of my best mates woody is on this forum that some of you probably know and we always go exploring together so there was never much point me putting up my photos as well of the same location on the same night. also only been using my dslr for the last few explores, i used to just use point and shoot which im quite gutted about now after doing that for a couple of years.

anyway i got bored on saturday and after doing the normal searching for explores for a few hours online i decided to go for a drive down to sarre and have a look to see if it was still open as looked like a good place.

got to the location and there was a guy feeding his pigs and various other animals on the land so i had to do a bit of a sneaky around him, managed to shuffle through the hole and spent about an hour down there on my own having a look around, although i could have got around it in about 5 minutes as its pretty small but there was something nice about being down there alone, nice and peaceful.

so only a few pics that im sure you've all seen hundreds of times before but it was a way of introducing myself and saying hello.

History here if anyone needs it - http://www.subbrit.org.uk/sb-sites/sites/s/sarre_brigade_headquarters/index.shtml

      Hey everyone, so I'm pretty sure everyone's heard of this place so i dont really need to explain much about it, but if you haven't, below is a brief history of Denbigh Mental Asylum.
       
      Grade 2 Listed building.
      Built work started in 1844
      Building work completed in 1848
       
      Built to house up to 200 patients with psychiatric illnesses. In the early 1900's it housed 1537 patients (Approx).
      The hospital had its own farm and gas works.
      Planned for closure by Enoch Powellin the 1960's, however it only began closing in sections between 1991-1995.

       
      Nurses Quarters:

       
       

       
      This is genuinely one of the best condition buildings that i have ever explored.

       
       

       
      Most of the lower floor windows were covered in either ivy or thick vines, so it got quite dark in some sections of the building.

       
      Now for the hospital itself, my personal favorite photos:

      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

      Established in 1926, G.L. Murphy was a family run business and supplied bespoke machinery to the tanning industry, as well as building rag cutting and cable stripping machinery.  The company also provide refurbishment and renovation works for various machinery types.

      Built in 1871 but had been refurbished at some point.
       Now, I don't do heights.. So I was chuffed to see my mate practically run towards it in excitement and go first. It was pretty high and the grated floor was not ideal if you wanted to avoid looking down. 
      The tower probably stands around 40-50 ft but exact measurements are unknown at this point.
      Apart from the odd clanging of metal under our footsteps and how wobbly it was, it was a good first climb like this for me!
      Got some snaps as usual, enjoy!
