So, as mentioned on my entry over on the mixed theme challenge I struggled with which image to go with. Usually I will find one that stands out above the rest but this time almost threw a coin in the air to pick… but here’s some more of the quarry, and a couple from the old care home, Llanerch House, that back in teh early 00’s I installed a wi-fi network prior to fire gutting it in 06.
I’d struggle to choose from those.
I also shot some video… or more accurately thought I did and was going to enter a 30s video for a change. Only on getting home I realised I’d done a beautiful flight around a POI only to not actually press record - #IamaMuppet
Used to do that quite a lot when using an action cam on a drone, think I’d started recording but actually stopped it. So i had lots of videos of my hand reaching for the camera to press the button,
I glanced at this and scrolled down past the excavator expecting to find this:
Personally I prefer the house… But both sites Lol amazing and great shots, Well done
The lengths some people will go to win these badges
I was just waiting for someone to link the two
Nice photos. Sad to see buildings in this state of repair but at least it gives nice photos
Indeed… I’m more intrigued about the literal abandonment of the quarry. What was going through the owners / liquidators minds to literally just shut up shop and walk away without even trying to sell some of the machinery?
Or selling the metal for scrap.
I’d wondered the exact same thing
Or setting up a drone park!
They are all worthy of a badge. It’s amazing to see nature reclaiming the house and also the machinery, albeit a bit slower.
Now there’s an idea… though there is a railway line nearby and a farmer that thinks this is his land.
Breaking news: It isn’t.
Not so sure about that, but I do love me a bit of Urbex. Just wish I knew of more places around here. We did have an abandoned farm about 2 miles from me but is now brand new property.
There’s always a farmer that thinks it’s HIS land
I like the one you have taken of the abandoned care home.
Thank you - and I just realised I posted the same image twice, when I had one from another angle ah well.
