UK The White Lion Pub, Stockport - Aug 15

Recommended Posts

Visited with a mate one night last week, bit of a rushed visit.

Photos not great as my main touch ran out as soon as got there and left the spare batteries at home, so using my back up light and most photos took one handed so little blurry but wanted to share anyway.

Will prob do a revisit as 2 mins from my flat.

Couldn't find much info on it but this is little bit I did find -

Public house. Dated on rainwater head, 1904. Brick with stone dressings, rendering and half timbering, combined for maximum picturesque effect. Plain tile roof. Hearty blend of late medieval and Baroque features in a typically exhuberant Edwardian fashion. Three storeys and attics with two-storey wing to Deanery Way. Corner entrance and four-bay elevation, two-window return. Semicircular entrance porch surmounted by tower. Full-height pilasters marking the angles of the two elevations. Half-timbered tower above the entrance with bands of mullioned and transomed windows in two storeys, and rendered upper storey with oculus in cartouche; projecting domed cap. Elevation to main road comprises three gables, that to the right having decorative framing and overshadowing the pair to the left. Paired segmental-arched windows to ground floor with heavy voussoirs divided by corbel carrying upper oriel window. Other windows on first and second floors are mullioned lights with small pane sashes of original design. Jettied upper storeys are timbered with close studding and quatrefoil panelling in apex of gable. Stone dressings to windows in brick storeys, timber mullions above. Return to Deanery Way comprises two gables divided by a chimney breast. Each gable has segmental-arched window with stone voussoirs in brick lower storey, and mullioned sash windows in rendered upper storeys. Half-timbered jettied attic gables with mullioned windows in upper storeys. Stone pilaster at one side supports jettying of left hand gable. Lower wing beyond has high central entrance with segmental pediment, and flanking sash windows. Similar very tall sash windows with brick dressings in rendered upper storey. Decorative railings and rainwater furniture.

They were all empty but this is only 2 mins from my flat and was very tempted to have one as been after an empty keg for years but resisted and left them all there.

      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

      What's left of the south marston hotel, remains an empty, scorched shell. Not much to see on this one, and I am way to late but hey, it still provides an eerie vibe. And the photos came out pretty good too. Thanks,

      Predannack opened in 1941 as an RAF base, but today is the satellite airfield to RNAS Culdrose - it is a restricted MOD site and an active airfield used daily for flying training and also provides our Fire Fighting training facility. The area is heavily utilised by Culdrose helicopter squadrons, light fixed wing aircraft and, on an occasional basis by other aircraft types including jet aircraft, for a variety of reasons. Predominantly crews are involved in intensive training sorties involving a high cockpit workload. On average there is in excess of 2000 aircraft moves a month at the unit. The airfield is also used by the Fire Training School for live fire fighting and rescue instruction/exercises and there is also a rifle range at Predannack which is frequently used for live weapon firings. Additionally the airfield is used for a variety of additional tasks when the Control Tower is unmanned e.g. gliding.

      After hearing about the permanent closure of this well known super store giant, we felt like a part of our childhood was gone forever.
      In the store we visited, we found the names of those loyal workers written on the wall with one of those people having  worked there for 20 years,
      but unfortunately we couldn't go back and get a photo due to my camera running out of juice.
      But all is not lost as there is a full video on my friend's youtube channel so check it out!

      Here are the best photos we managed to get, thanks for looking.
