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?

Burnt remains. Felt very post apocalypse.

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:

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:

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!

Thats all folks
