On the outskirts of Bath, one of the UK's most popular tourist cities lies this crumbling derelict military barracks. It opened in the 1940s and closed over 50 years later in 1993. A few years ago there was "news" that the site would be converted into retirement homes - nothing seems to have happened with that plan though.
The last 18 years haven’t been kind to the buildings, it has slowly fallen apart, succumbing to nature and bored local kids. It also seems to be a practice ground for Bristol/Bath’s graffiti artists – there are many fantastically detailed pieces.
If you’re reading this and think you want to explore old derelict abandoned places, it’s worth bearing in mind that these places can be dangerous – wet wooden floors can give way and you could end up hurt in a basement, or a roof could collapse on you, etc. – be careful! Don’t forget to let someone know where you’re going just in case!
