UK Abandoned Orphanage 2010 (st Edwards)

Recommended Posts

This was another stop on our boxing day tour back in 2010, I dont have much history on the place. All i remember is that it was a home for boys i think :-/ Cant even remember what part of the country it was in it was that long ago. Im sure someone on here may very well know.

 

 Again not alot to see in here as the lighting vas very poor in places. As you will see from the external it was heavily boarded up. Some of the corridors were rather nice and the entrance to the chapel/hall was a nice feature. Lovely big wooden doors, The external shot also came out quite nice, the snow added a little something extra.

That's very cool mate, quite enjoying seeing these old school explores as it's long before I got into this :thumb

 

By the way I noticed some of your pics are smaller than others, it would look better if they were all the same size in my opinion but up to you. You can also 'centre' your pics to make them look neater

Love these pics!!! 

 

Quick question to any admins reading, are HDRs OK to post on this forum?  I've not posted any on here as I've had unbelievable abuse on other forums for using HDR, personally I really like it, especially these ones, some great shots here :)

      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.

      Brick production at the Clock House Brickworks dates back to 1933 when the Clock House Brick Company Ltd was founded to exploit a rich seam of Weald Clay that had been discovered.  By 1941 the original company entered into liquidation due to the war effort and the lack of need for the hollow-block ceramics they were producing. A share of the company was sold to the London Brick Company, who in 1945 eventually purchased the company to avoid a full closure.  Production was vastly increased, in part to the housing boom of the 50’s, and during the 60’s the site was rebuilt to cope with the increased demand.  The London Brick Company was acquired by Hanson PLC in the 1980’s and the works was refitted. In 1998, Clockhouse Bricks were used by three major exhibitors in that year’s Ideal Home Show and in 2000, Clock House was said to be Hanson Brick’s main soft mud production site, producing around 42 million bricks per year
