UK Bob's Cat - Scotland - June 2015

Recommended Posts

Whilst having a scan over my area with Google Maps, I spotted this derp cottage which looked very overgrown, so had a bit of potential. A few weeks later I was in the area and decided to check out to see if it was any good, arriving at the bottom of the track, there was a lovely derp landy waiting for me. Looking from the bottom of the track I could also partially see the roof of a building, my derpy senses were tingling, I had high hopes there might be something good at the top of the track.

A long hike up the overgrown track, I soon found the cottage, well it was fucking shit.

Not even the derp JCB got me interetsed, this being as close as I got to it.

But there was still the Caravan, yes!! Oh the joy of exploring a Derp Caravan, oh the excitement! After walking all the way there I almost did go back down the hill, but since I was there, best take a look.

A little rummage around, there was a few nice bits left behind.

I am 99% sure this is the same cat as in the previous Photos.

Yes you really just did look at an explore of a DERP Caravan, but sometimes it just makes it worth the time to take a look!

Seeing as I was wrong about the Caravan, I decided to look around a bit more, oh a DERP SHED, my luck was defo in !!

It might not look like much, but a bit of research it turns out this bike is a custom built Roberts Road Bike, probably worth a lot of money nowadays!

And what derp explore would not be compete with out a Singer Sewing Machine!

So surely this explore had given me everything it could possible do, but NO, I remembered there being stuff on the Satellite image, further north, so off through the jungle of spikey bushes and low and behold I found another Landie!

Not only a Landie, but a Ice Rink Machine Thing!

That really is it, there was another Landie disassembled and piled up in the grass, a few big trailer fridges etc, but this seemlingly shit find turned out to be a rather good one!

Thanks for looking!!

      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!
