UK Abandoned School Sheffield 2010

Recommended Posts

Another trip down memory lane for me, We visited this old primary school on a very snowy day in November 2010, Whitch tbh wasnt the best idea we have had. Lots of untouched snow layed upon the once busy playground, as we walked across leaving many footprints for mr secca to see lol. Needless to say we were caught in this place so only managed a handfull of pics. Some nice natural decay and the odd toy knocking about.

Trying to figure out if i recognise this or not but I don't think I've seen it before. Thought it might be St Vincent's or Pye Bank. Looks pretty empty but interesting all the same :thumb

Looks like Pye Bank to me, one on my Sheffield to do list.

Had a look at Pye Bank with Ferox but it was in a really dodgy area in the middle of the day & didn't fancy leaving Ferox's car parked around there, just giving you a heads up, don't park right outside & be wary of the locals (I grew up on a scottish council estate & i thought it was bad haha.). Also i may be thinking of somewhere else but think i heard about an explorer getting his car robbed while they were exploring Pye Bank, may be getting confused but pretty sure it was there.

God you"re such a "Tease" :-D

 

Well you"ve got us all thinking :)

 

From pic 3 looking out i"d have said Pye Bank rather than St Vincents but i don"t remember the arched windows (mind you they were all sheeted up) it could be the other Sheffield School who"s name escapes me ATM. But then the last pic looks like Pye again ?

 

It was when myself & Will Knot visited Pye bank that we had the Drug dealing/possible car theft/South Yorks Police experience lol

      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.
