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: Westgate End House, April 09   Thu Apr 30, 2009 5:07 pm

Located behind another potential HUGE explore i found this while attempting a recce on the above.
The original building dates back over 500yrs. It looks like it was extended to the east side, this side of the building is pretty unscathed from the fire though we didn't investigate due to what sounded like a potentially large dog been in very close proximity.
Although i cannot find any information regarding its early history more recently it was a doctors surgery. Was talking to a colleague who used to live in the area and he remembers an incident where the owner of the practice was jailed over some drugs scandal though i can't confirm whether or not that's true.
From what is visible the building is severely fire damaged due to an arson attack on 10th November 2006. The building has remained in a pretty sketchy state ever since. I wasn't brave enough to go inside, looked too dodgy to me. The main front of it has collapsed, there's some lovely period features and some pretty impressive decor. Impressive fireplaces, decorative walls, doors and ceilings hint at what was once a lovely home. Some charred furniture still remains and a melted TV.

I'm gonna revisit at some point, it started to rain and i didn't get the shots i wanted. There's more to see.

A few photos:

From the front


...and again showing extent of the collapse


What looks like the remains of a study upstairs, hangs on the edge


Note the decor at the top of the walls, i forget what its called


Moving round the back...


And again, the collapsed middle section of the building


Cant believe it stood there for 500yrs before some pillocks decided to torch it.

I'll get your photobucket set up and you can post your photos in the thread too, i know you took loads more than me, you actually had the balls to go inside whereas i chickened out Embarassed

Jason, it is just 5 minute walk from the train station, behind a rather large old bakery whose name i wont mention. This was my original plan, but there's 24hr security here which suggests to me there's still plenty of machinery inside worth pinching. It'd be an ace explore if we could get in.
