    This site is due to be flattened soon, to make way for a Tesco or some sort of unaffordable housing eyesore, hence a visit sooner rather than too late.
    Visited with FaZy_uk and his brother, nice to meet you lads :thumb

    Lots of wooden buildings, some in very good condition, some rotted smashed and sagging dangerously with big drops under floors! Full of white asbestos.

    Can't afford a Rolls? You can get the boiler instead...

    Floors were randomly sawn across and ripped up; no idea why as the pipework is all iron!

    Sprayed concrete on metal lath - security or water proofing? The toilets for this shed were on the other side of the wall.

    Polish number tags. Apparently the site was used to house migrants in the 70's?

    Just a few of my pics:

    The 'Stanton' shelter from the roof of the shower block.

    Although it may not be an official Stanton, as it has a strange, flat-walled build.

    Steps to the escape shaft:

    23022008133-600.jpg

    Looking down the hatch:

    23022008132-600.jpg

    Main shelter entrance:

    23022008134-600.jpg

    In the shelter - an old Esso tyre advert:

    23022008136-600.jpg

    Looking down the length of the shelter, note the flat (not arched) walls

    23022008137-600.jpg

    Looking up the escape hatch:

    23022008138-600.jpg

    And looking back to the main entrance:

    23022008140-600.jpg

    aamusements pointed out this old poison bottle to me. It has physical lines on the side so that blind people know what it is

    23022008143-600.jpg


    One of the buckling sheds in the compound:

    23022008107-600.jpg

    Charred building:

    23022008111-600.jpg

    In a ladies toilet - I believe this was a very old sanitary towel incinerator:

    23022008102-600.jpg

    Smashed sinks in the shower block:

    23022008117-600.jpg

    Slate tiling outside shower block:

    23022008116-600.jpg

    Old, old electrical outlet:

    23022008122-600.jpg

    Overgrown water tower at top of hill:

    23022008078-600.jpg

    Pure ageing:

    23022008097-600.jpg

    And again - I believe this was a walkway between the accomodation blocks

    23022008051-600.jpg

    Another walkway:

    23022008058-600.jpg

    We actually made it across this:

    23022008063-600.jpg

    Barred windows:

    23022008024-600.jpg

    Building with completely collapsed porchway:

    23022008047-600.jpg

    My attempt at photography with an N95 :p

    23022008006-600.jpg

    An interesting find... 'Paddingtons Paint Box' dated 1976!

    23022008018-600.jpg

    Thats all folks
