Anyone feel the need to be MOD?
Lost towers and forgotten ruins, West Yorkshire, July '09 19 snaps I_icon_minitimeSun 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.

Whilst some people won't get out of bed for anything less than an asylum or a mine, or will only travel the well trodden tourist path through the rubble and undergrowth, I'm not fussy. I'll visit any manky old building. To add insult to injury I have made a compilation of manky old buildings here. None of these are worth a report on their own. They are probably not worth a combined report either.

Hidden in the grounds of Woodhouse Grove School, West Yorkshire, a derelict tower can be glimpsed through the trees.

"Wanted, a thoroughly practical FARM LABOURER. Rent free, with good wages. Apply, Mrs Revis, Scarcroft Mill, near Leeds." So advertised The Leeds Mercury , Saturday, November 20, 1875.

Near Featherstone is this ruined gatehouse. Built of warm Yorkshire sandstone it is currently derelict, without a roof or windows. Not that you can see how warm it is on a black and white snap.

Dating from c.1240, Sandal castle commands spectacular views over nearby Wakefield and West Yorkshire. It is possible this could be the location for children's nursery rhyme "The Grand old Duke of York", describing the Battle of Wakefield.

An archway to nowhere.

Stairway to Heaven.
The Battle of Wakefield formed the backdrop for Shakespeare's play Henry VI, part 3. Act 1, scene 2, set in Sandal Castle. Parliament ordered that it be made untenable in 1646, a year after a seige during the Civil War.

In the back of one of the buildings is a strange arched room. Air-raid shelter or simply a store room?

Forget Asbo's. Outside the village church in Kirkthorpe, near Wakefield are the village stocks. This used to be the village centre and the two seater stocks date back to the 1100's.

Dame Mary is said to have dabbled in witchcraft. She asked that the room where she died (in 1662) in the old hall should be sealed. When it was unsealed, 50 years later, it is claimed that her ghost appeared and proceeded to haunt the surrounding heath. I didn't see her today.
