After just getting my new camera for christmas i decided to go on another explore with my grandad. Ive been on a few little explores before but not like this… seeing as i got a new camera i thought it would be nice to go somewhere with lots of colour and a real eye catching sight. After trudging through some muddy tracks and figuring how to get there we found it.
According to wiki history HMS Royal Arthur was put into use on 2 January 1947. Its most notable trainee was Phillip Mountbatten shortly before his engagement to princess Elizabeth. The last recruits arrived on 30 October 1949, and on the 15 March 1950 it ceased to be used for training… the camp continued to be in service until the rest of the recruits left on 11 December 1992 and personnel left on 5 March 1993. Although the site had undertaken much vandalism there have still been proposals for redevelopment as a retirement villa. All plans of redevelopment have been sustained due to the presence of asbestos.
The HMS Royal Arthur is a interesting looking site to first look at but as we got further into the explore we realised just how trashed some parts really were. Although the report is not meant to be about graffiti it was just to hard to avoid it on this Naval Camp.
Some buildings here have been vandalised to the point of were they are now starting to fall apart, even with that it is still an intriguing and interesting place.
I know there are a few reports on this site already, but i thought that this was the perfect place to start using my new camera and a nice first report to put on here.
Some of the artwork here is gorgeous and is very hard to keep your eyes off of them, but not only the graffiti was interesting the way rubbish has been thrown around is amazing photo opportunities. it is a site that i would visit again and is somewhere you would not be able to get bored of. All in all a great exhibition of artwork.
Here are the pictures… hope you enjoy them ; very pleased for my first time using this camera. :)
