UK Echo sewer overflow - 2014

Recommended Posts

Been looking at getting into these for a while now and finally done it on friday night, getting in wasnt fun and it involved getting in water up to our shoulders which looked clean enough but there was the odd condom, towel and poo hanging about lol. The system itself is used as a run off incase the newer system overflows and is also used as a river run off. nice explore but not much too photograph, well over a mile and a half of tunnels and the older brick built tunnels were a nice added feature too see.

Got home and had a seriously long shower, thought about using bleach lol. Wont ever be doing it again so im glad i got too see it the once :-).

hope you like them.

      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.

      As part of another backlog of our West Country Trip, @Mookster, our American Explorer Friend @cgrizzy and myself traveled to this rather derpy site.  It's one of the list but little of interest remains inside; though its quite large, with long concrete voids with some pretty good Graffiti in places.  
      Not much was going on inside; except some kids with a makeshift skate park in the middle who seemed slightly suprised to spot us.   There is some really cool shots of nature reclaiming in here; lots growing everywhere and areas have collapsed.
       
      The Dries in Wenford were built in the early part of the 20th century (likely post-1907) to serve the local china clay pit at Stannon on Bodmin Moor.  
      China Clay in liquid form was carried in a pipeline from the pit to the settling tanks behind the dries. 
       
      The dries operated until the final closure in 2002 (aside from a brief closure during WWII). The works were originally built by the Stannon China Clay Company, but were acquired by English China Clays in 1919. The choice of site was heavily influenced by the presence of an existing railway line leading from Wenford Bridge which was originally constructed to carry granite from the nearby De Lank quarries. The dry was built adjacent to the railway line and a large private siding was built to connect to the network.

      History
      Maes Mynan care home was a two floor 33 bedroom care home on a site of 2.6 acres.
      The care home was for the elderly and it had its own day service and its own respite service for a short stay and emergency placements.
      The site was bought in 2013 by the healthcare company and has been left untouched since.
      The building itself we could not find much history about or anything about when the care home opened.
       
      Our Visit
      We decided to visit this place when we went out on a day trip to Engedi chapel (report will be up soon).
      On the way back we still had a lot of daylight left so we thought we would stop in and have a look at this site after seeing a report.
      The surrounding area was very overgrown and there was a long pathway leading up to the build.
      The site itself was in pretty good condition, well worth the visit if you have any free time.
      Be mindful if you do visit as just at the back of the site, there is a house that we assumed is occupied.

      The main Hartwood Hospital building block with central towers with side wings was designed and built from 1890 by the local architect J L Murray from Biggar as the Lanark District Asylum covering the Lanarkshire area. The hospital closed in 1999
