France H15 - france - september 2015

Recommended Posts

Evening all, hope we are all having a lovely juan. right it's been a week since RAWs went up and its been a couple o' few weeks since my last report so thought i'd fire something up from weekend before last weekends 36 hour hop into france. pretty banging 36 hours really, got round a prison, a chateau and then went to an awesome party, more than most normal people get done in 36 hours anyway :P

History.

-right i just spent about 20mins digging through old reports trying to find some half decent history on the place which i could steal but cant see much about, all i found is that the place closed in 2011 and housed around 1500 inmates. As you will see the place is well buggered now, absolutely trashed and covered head to toe in graff, that said i cant speak for the womens side as we didn't get in there.

The explore.

Explored with Maniac, the_raw and elliot5200. Twas an early start on the morn of our departure and after good floor kipping session at the behest of mr manics hospitality we were well on our way to the tunnel. Landed in the general area of the prison around 11 and after picking up some lunch supplies and wandering around a car park looking for a bog for 20 mins we headed off towards the prison, as most will know there's a lovely little group of romany gypsys planted in the car park of the prison, heard stories of explorers getting corned in cells by them and shit so were a little bit on the ball, kept a a keen eye on the carpark as we scooted around to the access the place is pretty much wheelchair friendly now which made life easy but will have also lended to the reasons the place is so buggered. Once inside the main building we all kind of wandered off and got our shots, nothing particularly exciting went down, bumped into a few french explorers, had lunch at the centre of were the wings meet up, i got a boner when i found a puddle and that was about it. As trashed as it is i really enjoyed our few hour mooch in here, something a bit different, definitely would have been nice to get in the womens section but we were in a bit of a rush as we wanted to tick off a chateau before heading to our party destination. So yeah that was about it, no medieval style clashes with pikeys, no seccas chases, no horrific accidents-no ghosts, just a nice little mooch around an empty prison taking photos, smoking fags and eating chess n ham namwiches :D could have spent longer here i reckon, we saw a ladder for the roof but needed to get on the road to our next destination so skipped that, i'd defo go again if i was in the area. As for the infamous H15 carpark gypsies, i honestly think they are so used to people going in there the couldnt give a flying funk any more. Explorers and graffers have been going in for a few years now, we saw 2 possibly 3 other groups of french explorers in there as well as us- and that was just in the space of 2/3 hours. I hadn't seen a report for a while but this place obviously still major tour bus, just think the gypos are past caring who's snooping about, i blatantly got spotted up a watch tower by one of them and he didn't bat an eye.

right then, on with a load of very similar pics of cell blocks with loads of infinity lines and wonky symmetry : P my sensor is pissed in my camera so horizontal parallel lines taper one side-AND ITS CLUCKIN WELL ANNOYING!!

      Dieses Sanatorium wurde 1898 gegründet und diente im WK I als Lazarett. 
      1965 kam dan die Umwandlung in ein normales Krankenhaus und 2000 folgte dann die komplette Schließung.

      The train in question is the Eurostar 373018, one of many Eurostar Class 373 trains that started operating in 1994. Capable of speeds up to 186 mph, the Class 373s were specifically designed to transport passengers between London, Paris, and Brussels via the Channel Tunnel.
       
      Since 2016, however, many 373s have been withdrawn or scrapped, despite just 22 or 23 years in service. Eurostar 373018 is officially in storage, but the word “abandoned” seems more appropriate.
      Branches from nearby trees now reach out and touch its windows. Weeds rise up from the rusting tracks on which it sits. Graffiti covers what were once the clean lines of the train’s streamlined form. It looks like the kind of place where Rick Grimes would butcher a bunch of zombies, or where Mad Max would go shopping if he wanted to buy a train.
       
      What the future holds for this high-speed train is anyone’s guess. So far, 18 of the 373 Class trains have been sent to be scrapped by European Metal Recycling (EMR) at Kingsbury in the West Midlands region of England. Others have been scrapped in France, three have ended up in museums or colleges, and some lucky 373s have been refurbished and remain in service.
       
      Eurostar 373018, however, remains in “storage” in the north of France, a fine nesting place for birds, an interesting canvas for graffiti artists, and an intriguing landmark for train enthusiasts, eagle-eyed users of Google Earth, and urban explorers like AdcaZz whose video exploration of the train you can check out on YouTube.
       
      And if you’re wondering why these 373s were abandoned and not reused elsewhere, well, it seems like a few factors were in play. Technology had simply moved on, leaving these 22-year-old trains out of date. It was also more cost efficient to bring in a modern fleet rather than overhaul these existing trains, especially as the replacements had a greater seating capacity, meaning more money over less time. In the end, therefore, many of the 373s were deemed “life-expired.”

      Built in 1800s (?) .
      At least 800-900 m2 (?) .
       Large gated garden/grounds.
       Big garage & pool.
       On the banks of the river Seine.
       
       I'd like to know everything about the
       house(/place) what is there to know -
       in details. (My guesses are only estimates. Google Maps & Earth don't
       give much to work with).
       
       Someone could set an expedition on the site ; possibly with a drone ?
