UK A Gypsy's Pub May 2015

Recommended Posts

I visited here with Lavino, I spotted it as we were walking by it and said we should go in and have a look at it. So once we got to the access point it stunk a bit and it was pitch black so I thought the place wasn't going to be too good, but when I turned around and turned on my torch I saw a bar full of bottles and un smashed glasses. Also there were quite a few stool's and tables dotted around also books all around on the floor for some strange reason. Next we moved onto the upper floor it was a bit brighter as it had windows but it still wasn't that much light, but the great thing about the upper floor is it had 2 glass domes which looked amazing ( one was taken into pieces and placed on the floor ) and there was another another bar which was also in ok condition. And then we moved onto a next set of staircases but this one was the living quarters of the owners and this was the only floor which didn't look too good as it had plants growing in one room and it also had a striped carpet plus a big steel safe lying on its side. Anyway here is a bit of history and some pics from my visit hope you enjoy :D.

The has no real certain future but it is owned by a company named PJM Trading Ltd which has long since gone out of business. The pub was built in the 19th century. During the later half of the century traveling dentists would go to the rear of the pub and extract peoples teeth, they would also have a brass band playing to drown out all of the screams. The pub was put into the hands of local brewers in the early 20th century. The place has now been shut since 2007 ( and it seems not many people have been in it since the 8 year shut down ).

Great report and pics. That's a proper result finding that it wasn't trashed inside

Ahh the good old days of brass bands drowning out the sound of screaming lol :-D

      Hi Gyus
      I came across this place, a few weeks ago, that hasn't been abandoned for long, (5-6 Months), the power seems to be still on too. So I bet it would be mint inside, with everything left in tact. My latest visit was more of a scouting session to check the place out, and get a feel for the place. I noticed some minor vandalism has occurred since my last visit, which is painful to see.
       
       
       
      Thanks

      HISTORY
      Tenterden Town railway station is a heritage railway station on the Kent and East Sussex Railway in Tenterden, Kent, England.
       
      When the railway line first opened in 1900, Rolvenden Station was known as "Tenterden". Its name was changed when the line extended north three years later and a station closer to Tenterden was constructed. The new Tenterden Town station opened on 16 March 1903.The line closed for regular passenger services on 4 January 1954 and all traffic in 1961. It reopened on 3 February 1974 under the aegis of the Tenterden Railway Company which bought the line between Tenterden and Bodiam. The station now houses the KESR's Carriage and Wagon works, and the Colonel Stephens Museum is located nearby.
       
      EXPLORE
      So we set out on our explore with a list of places We wanted to check out. After a few not amounting to much and the next couple being total fails, we parked up and regrouped! 
      The  Tenterden site had been on my radar for a while (although I couldn’t be 100% about it’s location) so after a little discussion we decided to take a chance and head out to try and find the Lost Railway and its Train Graveyard.
      We headed toward the closest point by road, parked up and set off along a short path way. The area was really quiet apart from the odd dog walker.  After literally five minutes we knew we were in the right place and could see the abandoned trains hidden amongst the trees.  Access was easy literally a small hop over the fence and down the bank, there they were! 
      Its the first time any of us had ever done an explore of this nature and it was amazing... 
      Anyway here are some of the pictures we took throughout the explore.
      Thanks for reading 😊

      With an ever lasting itch to explore a prison or police station that needed scratching, the time came to explore Brentwood Police Station. Unfortunately solo but a great explore despite!

      So after finding a good access point and choosing my moment wisely between passers by, I found myself within the grounds of the police station and soon inside.
      The building is mostly stripped out and a bare shell but that wasn’t the main sight to see, I had my mind set on finding the cells! After trying every door it was just my luck they were in the last place I looked.
      Attempting the court house adjacent the police station proved unsuccessful.

      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!
