Tabor house, braintree

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I drove past this large manor house this evening, was pretty boarded up but quite old and I imagine it's got some gems inside. Currently looking at redevelopment.

On phone at the moment so can't post a Google map image, will do tomorrow.

Thanks @mookster & @hamtagger. Dubbed Navigator, this used to be County High School, once part of the still existing Tabor School in Braintree. It has been used as a few things over the years, Social Services had it at one point but now being redeveloped in to apartments I believe. Good news really as it is such a lovely building and would be a terrible waste. This building really does have a lot of history in the town.

I'm not sure how far the development stage is, but might still be worth checking out.

Here is the link to my thread : http://www.oblivionstate.com/forum/showthread.php/8393-County-High-Essex?highlight=county

and here are a few pictures from inside, possibly one of the nicest halls I have seen. Aside from that, there is not much else i there worth seeing, a strange looking corridor and the bell tower but the exterior of the building is pretty impressive in itself.

They don't operate CCTV here, they have squirrel watch :D15882321304_966f8a5402_c.jpg

Might not have been a bad thing that you kept driving, Braintree is a shithole haha! I have recently moved from there up to Lincs. Glad I got this one done though :thumb

      Due to annoying incidents quite well known. Meanwhile, a lot was looted here and destroyed as much by vandalism.

      Campina Youth House
       
       
      Haven't seen this one posted anywhere so I decided to chuck a quick report up on it. I would say this particular location could be described as disused rather than abandoned, as it looked like there was redevelopment work going on when we arrived. Hence why it is so nice and pristine. Anyway, onto a little bit of history I found..
       
      History

      The Youth House was orginally built as a leisure centre in Campina. A city situated roughly around the South East of Romania. It was constructed by local authorites in order to create a space for young people to participate in a range of sporting activities such as: aerobics, matrial arts and boxing. It was also established in order to promote culture and education and the house provided various facilities for the arts. The Youth House hosted a large auditorium to  showcase fairs, exhibitions, conventions, concerts and festivals. 
       
       
      Visit

      Visited with @darbians and @Gigi on a long weekend trip to Romania. We were driving past and saw what we orginally thought was a hotel and decided to check it out. Finding this place was defintely an unsuspected susprise and I'm very glad we decided to pull over. I really enjoyed photographing this one and I espiecally liked the mosiacs which reminded me of the ones at Buzludzha I had seen the previous year. I hope you enjoy my report!
       
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      When you find a window open on the top floor, gotta get a few photos from the roof

      Another short report from me, this was my second Urbex excursion so I'm keeping them short to kinda test the waters a bit before I go all out and find bigger places (or at least more interesting ones) with better equipment. I couldn't find anything about the place online but from what I gathered someone was evicted and then burglars came and stripped the place. That's just what I got from the graffiti drawn on by someone who has never attended an English class, although there are a lot of those types around here XD. Anyway, enjoy the pictures!

      A very old farm house early 1800's id say..it was or sale what i found in here was unlike anything id every found before

      A  large roomy house

      thats an old piano..

       


      This was the 1stof a few finds..the painting was bolted to the wall...seemed hard to remove without destroying it


      this might have something to do with this next room

      the words die die die die...carved into a bedroom door with a padlock on it


      the walls inside the room had scratches all over them...

      translate anyone



       
      caught 2 clear voices in this room

      A room with carpet on the door

      the mist in on the left...what could that be..


      the house was for sale cheap but noone wanted to buy it...it was eventually torn down...

      I caught two clear voices in the bathroom ...you can hear the word paris(which is my name)..and boo..i heard footsteps while i was there but nothing on film...i reget not taking that painting..hope it was save befor it bwas torn down...
