UK Cambridge Military Hospital, Aldershot - OCT 15

Recommended Posts

 

 

A very brief History

Cambridge Military Hospital was completed in 1869 and was active till 1996, for the past 19 years it has been left to decay. It was built with the purpose to serve British army camps located near by. Today it is patrolled by security with one of the south west buildings demolished

Our Visit

After waking up at 0300 and riding to meet TheVampiricSquid, the long journey up to Aldershot began. He'd been here before whilst this was my first visit. Upon entering the premises, everything went smoothly and to plan, our planned access was a no go but we easily found another way in within minutes.

After exploring the East side, we decided to head around the back and explore the west. After nearly bumping into a patrolling security member, we lasted about 20 minutes of being in the main building it was apparent we had tripped an alarm so we ran to the center of the site and kept our heads down.

Just before we were going to check out the clock tower we heard shouting from down stairs...we'd been cornered in the main building with no where to run, we figured it was best to come clean with this one. After we'd been escorted to the front of the site, we were tolled that they would call the police and have our details taken. Uh oh! TheVampiricSquid then decided we weren't having that so we made a run for it...

Half a kilometer and three angry security guards later, we'd made it back to the point of which we entered :D

      I remember this being a real nice explore except for loads of pigeon shite everywhere

      Back in July, myself and @mookster revisited a site which we both explored back in May 2010 where we piloted my beloved 1978 Land Rover Series III to leafy Surrey.  It was a roasting hot day and as an explorer of a year and a bit, it was an exciting huge factory explore which we spent hours in.
       
      Fast forward well over eight years and we decide to try a few sites around Surrey and London and head here for a revisit.  A lot had happened here in eight years; all documented on crappy YouTube videos and various visits over the year, the site had been torn apart, once secured with guards, fences erected and just pillaged for its innards.  
       
      I'd heard about being a muddy swamp inside in the rain; hardly suprising as it was a cat litter factory producing cat litter mined from Fullers Earth from a quarry on the same site.  
      We arrived on site in a similarly ancient car; my 1988 Volvo 240 GLT on a much hotter day; quite a roasting day.  Perfect exploring weather.
       
      The years had not been good; it was battered, beaten and stripped beyond recognition; not suprising seeing as it shut in 1994. I did not recognise this place at all.  But it kind of had a charm in the summer sun, it looked like the sort of factory you'd explore on GTA Free Roam, or Driver and find Tommy Vermicelli hiding!!
       
      Good to see it again for nostalgia in any case.  
       
      We spent an hour ish here before moving on to London where we ended up sitting in traffic for ages and going to a very tasty place which served bowls of meat gravy with a burger to bathe in it.  Very good it was too!

      Found our way into a small cave in the Yorkshire dales.

      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.
