Just trying to work my way around Adobe Photoshop and this is what I’ve created…


….and finally…The Farm, South Cave East Yorkshire

25 09 2012

So finally, I ended my nearly 4 hour photography stint in the Farm.
This was once an active farm with livestock, were offenders were given the responsibility to assist with the running of it. These days its used for growing plants and storing broken equipment, although some of the machinery and workings are still in place.

Rose Cottage, South Cave East Yorkshire

25 09 2012

Whilst visiting Everthorpe Hall, I took a little wonder around Rose Cottage. Without doing some research on this I think it was originally part of Everthorpe Hall and has been sectioned off and made into its own building. At some point in the last 12 months this building has been pulled apart and asbestos has been removed, leaving this beautiful little cottage extremely bare and open….as you can see by the pictures.
I found some little gems inside this cottage which I’m sure you’ll agree….

Everthorpe Hall, Internal – Part 2

These are the views from inside Everthopre Hall. The majority of the photos were taken in pitch black conditions with the aid of a torch and the flash on my camera. Strangely enough despite these eerie conditions, I didn’t feel spooked or nervous, not like when taking the Hawthorn Ave pictures in broad daylight!

Everthorpe Hall, South Cave, East Yorkshire – Part 1

21 09 2012

Everthorpe Hall is nestled in a housing estate in South Cave East Yorkshire. It sits to the rear of HMP Everthorpe, a catagory C male prison. This stunning building for many many years and has been enjoyed by a large amount of the local people.
The Manor House, Everthorpe Hall was built in 1870, originally built for Thomas Whitaker, who died in June 1912. In 1914 Mr Benjamin Seed, a fruit merchant of Hull, purchased the manor house. Upon his death in 1928 his son John inherited the property. He sold the estate in 1947 to Gilbert Baitson of Hull. In 1949 Mr Baitson sold the property to the home office and so has since been owed by HMP Everthorpe and used by the prison for training, open days and socially by staff and their families.

I spent almost 4 hours wondering around this amazing building as I was granted access by the Governor. The building ceased being used in 2008 and speaking to some of the staff who used Everthorpe Hall (also known as the ‘Club’), they are saddened by it’s deterioration. Hopefully this once beautiful building is going to receive some much needed TLC and gain some funding to be able to restore back to it formor beauty.
For now though the building stands empty, damaged by water and by young kids who have gained entry with no respect for what is not theirs.
