Abandoned Farm/ Gypsy site near Woking

Hello guys and girls, bit of an unusual one today. I was scouting google maps for potential sites and spotted this site tucked away just outside Woking. So on a cold autumnal day me and RoversRam gathered our gear and went for a mooch.

History is very hard to find but it appears it was a livestock farm then at some point it appears the gypsies had moved on and turned it into a rather large site. I believe they left around two years ago as there is food on the site which is still in date. Upon entering the site there is a pile O shite continuing up there is some kind of workshop, after this there is a charred pile which looks like the remains of a ride control booth, workshop and land rover. After this there is a huge foundation which I assume had a large caravan perched on top at some point and a load of other caravans dotted around some of which were not that badly trashed. There are two amenities blocks on the site which I think is unusual given all the caravans had their own facilities and a few porta cabins.

Overall a very nice relaxed splore once access is gained. Woking council now own the land and I believe they want to put some sort of gymnastics building on the land.

Okay ramble over, run the pics! TAC

Looking down into the workshop.

Where I assume the main caravan once stood.

Inside one of the amenity blocks, the other one was full of crap and a bead headboard, not sure why that was there.

Check out this retro coin operated electric meter! Each block had one of these.

Some sort of tank.

The first of many caravans. This was a mess inside.

Inside the first large van, a little trashed but not too bad.

Into the second large van this was less trashed than the first.

Inside the first porta cabin, not sure what is was used for but it had a nice kitchen and various foodstuffs dotted around.

Think this window may have a problem, but if you see the state of the caravan its a drop in the ocean.

The other portacabin, this looks like it was some sort of office.

Yeah, glad you enjoyed it, though I'm a great believer in credit where credit is due, so a little acknowledgement
would have been nice if I helped you find it, or even a like on my original post about Ten Acre, rather than implying you found it!
After all, we are all here to help one another like you did with orchard farm and I gave a little help with info on that.
Sorry, moan over, I guess I was a bit miffed I didn't even get one like on my post and I spent so long looking for info on it! :D
Anyway, glad you enjoyed it, that's the main thing.

I didn’t like yours? Bugger sorry mate I’ll do that now I thought i had. I did research and find the site myself. I only used your report to get a rough idea of where it was. I also checked though my photos so I didn’t upload any that were the same as yours and made sure I didn’t copy anything off of your report. I’m not one of those people that goes the easy route by using other peoples reports I like to find the locations myself otherwise it ruins the fun of researching. I wasn’t implying that I found it at all because I did so apologies if you thought this is the case. It sucks when you don’t get many likes on a report I understand that but hey we do it because we love it right? Not for the likes
