    Report - Plympton imerys China clay works- July 2018

    I couldn’t find a great deal online talking about the history of the site but I did get this: The Clay Factory originally started life as a china clay works at the turn of the 1900’s – the clay was pumped down to the site from Dartmoor for drying and processing before being transported by train...

    Report - Darkies Tunnel Plymouth - July 2018

    Today I decided to pay darkies tunnel a visit with two non 28D members. I don’t have any pictures of the end as sadly my phone battery got too low, but I thought what I had was still worthy of a report. Darkies tunnel (otherwise know as devonport and ford) is two disused railway tunnels that...

    Report - Blackborough House, Devon, July 2018

    The beautiful Blackborough House located in the small hamlet of Blackborough. It was built between the early to mid 1800's and is a Grade 2 listed country house. It is currently labelled as a semi-derelict but I can confirm that it is way worse than "Semi-Derelict" The floors are collapsing or...

    Abandoned buildings Plymouth

    I came across this site yesterday with a friend of mine. Sadly, I have virtually no information as I can’t find anything on the internet about it. It’s a building with 3 floors with the entrance being on the roof. Each floor has plenty of different rooms which still have equipment in. Sorry the...

    Report - Strawbridge House, OKEHAMPTON, Devon, July 2018

    A super great house this one. Lots of rooms, lots of staircases, a surprise around every corner. Huge cellar and lots of bats. I tried to find some extra history on this one but couldn’t, a post from one year ago says it was owned by a Lord and has been unoccupied since 2006 when house went...

    Report - Old School House, Fowley Cross, Okehampton, Devon, June 2018

    Don’t have any history on this one I’m afraid. Went before and was boarded up, came again recently as going past and could get access. It was an old school house, not very big. It had two entrances at each end of the building which would of been separate entrances for boys and girls. Outside...

    Leigham Tunnel also known as Cann tunnel was an old tramway tunnel built early 1820’s. It is 620 yards long and pretty straight.

    Report - Shedden Hall, Torquay, Devon, June 2018

    This once stunning holiday resort has since seen better days, having been a family run hotel, it went out of business in 2012. After painstakingly weaseling in through a tiny window that had just recently been pried off, we found ourselves in the basement. There are so many stunning shots to be...

    Report - Abandoned Home, Cornwall, june 2018

    Deep in the boonies of North Cornwall lies this rare gem. Completely hidden by trees and jagged roads almost never traveled on. This home has been untouched in terms of personal belongings, everything is left here. Being inside was an eerie reminder that when you die, all your possessions mean...

    Report - Abandoned Farmhouse/Outbuildings near Tavistock, Devon, June 2018

    Came across this one today by accident. It’s the second one I’ve found recently just by driving (for work), and also same old metal pre fab style farmhouse. No history with this I’m afraid. Found no clues inside or any paperwork. Main house was sadly empty just a few pieces of furniture and...

    Report - Seaton Heights Hotel, Devon, June 2018

    Seaton Heights Hotel in Seaton, Devon. It’s had planning from September 2013 to turn into houses. Obviously not much has gone on in 5 years. Plenty more graffiti and smashed glass and much more overgrown. There is a post on this site from 2014 which said reason being delayed was because of bats...

    Report - Abandoned Orchard Farm House near Okehampton, Devon.

    While driving I saw an old entrance that peaked my interest. Looked on google maps and could see some small buildings so went and had a look. So no history with this one. Sign and name on gate was ‘Orchard’ a common surname round here but large family that own a lot of land, farms, buildings...

    Report - MOUNTFIELD LODGE, MUSBURY, AXMINSTER, DEVON, JUNE 2018

    absolutely gorgeous building, access is easy enough, a little crawl on your hands and knees action through a hole in a gate, and then through another. Getting into the main portion of the building through the kitchen can be tricky, as there is no floor, but instead a mountain of furniture, and...

    Report - Mountfield House - Musbury, Axminster, Devon - 04/05/18

    Visited this building the other day, was a cool location worth checkin out. It was built in 1865 and seems to be split into 4 dwellings. The building is pretty hidden and not visible from the road, but can be found on google maps if you have a look around on satellite mode. It is straight...

    Brackenside House near Bideford Devon May 2018

    Went to this one last night but recently all boarded up tight so only pictures of outside I’m afraid. No cameras but security lights for night time. If you had a ladder could of got access through upstairs window. They even blocked up all the outbuildings. Might try another day. Built approx...
