Saw this place reported on by UrbexCamo; it being close by and an easy explore seemed like a quickie. Finally getting the report up because I am a lazy sod.

Not much to go on in the way of history, seemed to be a restaurant/vineyard that closed late 90’s or early 2000’s and as such had no online presence. The place itself is far beyond saving and shows its age with the incredibly bowed ceiling that looks like a light cough would set it tumbling.

The explore

UrbexCamo’s report and google images both warned of a close by gypsy camp so I made sure to bring protection… in the form of the biggest ginger I know. It might be coincidence, but we weren’t bothered at all. It being the end of spring the whole entrance to the restaurant was overgrown with nettles, so much so that we had to hack our way through.

Shorts were a mistake.



The place itself was a tip and I can probably guess who the culprits were.




Some photos of the old vineyards.



Not in tune.




Those windows are not supposed to slant down like that.


Just being under this roof unnerved me.

The most intriguing thing about this site for me is having lived in Southampton for 40 years i recognise it from a really bad date in the 80s but dont know why or where it is, have been looking everywhere but am baffled as to its location, Im sure i drive past the gates regularly but have no idea where.

Great report and photographs! Visited here Christmas Day, Kestrel Security (these buggers are on derps like flies on poo) now guard the site and the gypsy camp is right nextdoor with a new house also being built behind it so I gave it a miss.

That's weird, we had another look on the 30th of November and didn't see hide nor hair of working security, only old signs. And the gypsies are a worry, but thankfully didn't see them either.
