Nortel Sports & Social Club, Harlow, Essex. Nov 2014

This was my 1st ever explore.

Not sure what the history of the building is or anything unfortunately as it was my wife that suggested going here together (she is so romantic lol).

I'm sure this has been done soooooo many times by anyone that lives in the area but I'm really pleased at the photos I got of this place (I took about 200 in total!). I've also done some really nice edits too :)

I think it's safe to say that place has definitely seen better days, these kinda places are great for getting experience though and you got some decent enough pics out of it :)

Hope you don't mind that I added a couple of spaces between the photo links for you as they look better separated a bit :thumb

Ive not seen this place in a long while JayB and the vandals and arsonist have certainly got to work on the place over the years.

I use to live just down the road and remember popping in here with Nelly and it was pretty much beaten up then.

Good to see and thanks for sharing :thumb

2011 I think

Thanks for all the great comments guys. This place has certainly seen better days but it was a great place to take photos. (Un)fortunately I'll be visiting these places on my lonesome from now on as my wife has decided to bail on me for future explores lol.

Thanks Skeleton Key. Its a shame these places cant be left alone by the minority that think its a good idea to trash the place. Ive seen some of Nellys pics of this place from a few years ago and its so unrecognisable now.

If I can get past security I'll take a look inside. Ive not had to deal with security yet or find alternative ways in to places. Should be fairly easy on my own tho

      In the forest sits this stone building, I can't find any info on it other that it's sitting on a settlement mound.

      The Chateau LadyBug is a beautiful place to explore, with a lot of different styles and photo opportunities.
      The main building was built during the XIXth century.
      It became a restaurant during the 80's when a rich investor decided to reconvert himself in the restauration.
      He renovate the place to reach the standards of the most famous restaurants, hire a famous cook and won a star in the Michelin Guide quickly.
      Things turned bad for the owner when his chief cook decided to quit.
      Then, he tried to test his luck again by hiring two new cook, but without success, at all...
      Customers started to desert the place, bills started to piles up and bankrupt arrived few months later.

      Currently, the place is for sale for more than 2M.
      We explored it just in time before it was closed and cameras were installed.

      The company was established in 1949 , they relocated in 2015 to a more central location and just left the site ,
      there is a small petrol station at the front consisting of two bungalows , one is fairly empty and the other is full of paperwork from the petrol sales , 
      not a huge ammount left in the factory but a fair bit of office stuff laying round and a few work stations , decaying nicely in a few places
      on with the pics from my visit

      a place i pass by quite often,
      poped in here for a look back in 2016 , long before the fire gutted half the building, tho ive seen it recently on YT it looks a bit different now
      once it was uaed as a health spa which is why some of the bits and bobs seem to have been from that period of  the buildings use
      the place finaly closed in 2007 due to there not being enough couples and attracting mostly single blokes 
      the management had to draft in hookers from wolverhampton to take care of buisness
      this kind of just made it a bit of a nocking shop and wasnt realy legal so it closed down in the end
         on with the picks

      An independent members only club, dedicated to the working man who required a certain place for private meetings and events. 
      This place has a little bit of everything. Dark, creepy unlit rooms, and rooms where light was still flourishing through the gaps and crevices. 
      It has had many aliases since the buildings birth in the 1920's and had less than 300 members.
      Along the many years the workmens club was usually packed full of people, to the point you couldn't even move. 
      Slowly but surely however the club started to lose money as members became scarce. It couldn't pay it's own way and since the number of members started dwindling,
      the Workmans club had to close its doors to the few remaining loyal members. 
      Now sits empty and has done for more than 6 years now.
      Hopefully the building can see new life in the near future, but for me it was good to get an unusual view of the club.
      Cheers for looking!
