Anyone feel the need to be MOD?
Sun Apr 18, 2010 6:14 pm by meanwood_monks
Been thinking about this for a while now.

Some of you guys/gals have been here since day 1. Cheers for all your support over this time.
Was wondering if anyone was wanting to keep an eye on things and have MOD rights here.

PostSubject: Newlands Park, Normanton Nov 08 7 pics   Sun Nov 30, 2008 3:55 pm

After seeing the report from Canonite, headed over to see this place!

Newlands Park, set in woodland, a mile and a half out of Normanton was once the home to 78 people in the 1861 census. 110 years later, in 1971, the population was 9. Today the Coach house, Great Hall, Stables and houses are ruined, slowly being reclaimed by nature.


It's a strangely empty hamlet, that hints at being a grand place once upon a time. Nothing remains save the walls and doorways, chimneys and fireplaces.


The houses are empty, with few roof beams and no floors left. Much of the stone and slate was stripped by pikies who have lived on the site on and off over the last 30 years.


The land and buildings were originally owned by the Knights of St John of Jurusalem, the Knights Hospitaller. Originally they would have set off on the crusades of the Holy Land. The Pope was instrumental in dissolving the power held by them, yet they owned large tracts of land across Europe. Newlands Park is built on that land.


Underneath the land are miles of forgotten coal mines, Park Hill Colliery and St Johns Colliery, taking it's name from the Knights of St John of Jurusalem.


Subsidence from the colliery workings caused much damage to the buildings, and work was needed to support crumbling walls.
This is the only remaining roof on the site.


The decaying remains of the elaborate stable building, taken from the Great Hall


Now working, after manually putting in the img codes. What a ball ache.

How long did you stay there? I like the roof in the old pig 'oles but it was a little modern. If you fancy going up there again gimme a shout. You know the farmhouse in the middle of the field? That was only done over about 3 or 4 yrs ago, the guy is on about redeveloping the one on the hill.
While i was there we bumped into him, he just had some papers and was taking pictures. We also bumped into 2 guys from the Welbeck site.......if you look on my report you'll see them in the sly pic i got them in. Heheh. One of em had fell into the river earlier in the morning.

They were sat in the last house nearest the river behind the Hall smoking some of that rastafarian Old Holborn. The buggers. Twisted Evil

We were there about 45 minutes. it's nice place too. Bit tricky to photograph as the trees get in the way! I bet it would be a nightmare in summer as you wouldn't see anything. I'll let you know if i'm over that way again.

Its ace in summer, proper overgrown.....but its always a comfort to know the pub is just down the path where you can sit and peruse your images before you leave.
