Emmanuel Christian School is a large private faith school in Lancashire for 113 pupils. When originally researching this site I dubbed it “Lancashires Hidden Village” until I had further information because of the large sprawling nature of the site.

Due to the severe lack of information on this site the following information is mainly speculative:

In the early 2000’s the school switched locations. Allowing this one to die a slow death from vandalism and rot. The official website of the school has held a “under construction” placeholder since October 2008 despite the complete closure of the school.

All in all a pretty pants site, it’s huge and has lots of stuff unfortunately all that stuff has either been set on fire or is rotting.

Palatine Road Crane 5th March 2009

Explorers: j3bu, anclove

Only a baby crane. It’s building a car park. I’m afraid there’s not very much around it that’s particularly interesting so the photos are quite boring. After spending a fair bit of time up there enjoying the view and accidentally making the crane make very loud noises as the sheet metal we stood on popped and then reverberated through the other sheets, it began to snow so we decided to head down. After getting to the bottom it we didn’t have time for many photos before the snow became heavy and a risk to our cameras.


Lytham Quays Crane 15th May 2008

Filed under: "Cracked" site,High Places — j3bu @ 12:00 pm

The Lytham Quays is a new development near blackpool. It had a nice little crane and how could I possibly deny it the honour of being climbed?

At close to 200ft with no platforms on the way up for a break and a ladder broken in 3 places that changes sides of the crane it was a tough climb resulting in me being very tired by the time I was on my way down but boy was it worth it. Some truly beautiful views were possible from the top of the crane although it was almost impossible to capture anything atop the crane due to the fact there was no cab, merely a small platform that wobbled alot while I was up there so I decided to stay a maximum of 5 minutes.
