Molly's Mansion

I wasn't able to find out a lot about this object.
It is probably suffering the same fate as many other noble residences in the area: After the German reunification came the vacancy, then the vandalism, and after about 10 years the foreclosure came.
In this case, the foreclosure happened in the mid-1990s.
The mansion was built in classical style probably late 19th or early 20th century.
During the foreclosure, the mansion was bought by a lady who reportedly lived in the west wing for some time, but has since moved to Scotland.
The house is situated in a residential area.
A "native" who appeared to be some kind of caretaker kindly granted us entry to on the premises under the condition that we would not disturb the sheep. He wouldn't allow us to enter the building and there was no obvious way in, so there are only a few outside shots.

No sheep were harmed in the making of this blog post.

Brickyard A. (Part 2)

Here's the rest of the pictures I took in the abandoned brick yard.
It was a great day, because it wasn't too cold and the sun was shining almost right until we left the place to head home.

You can find the full gallery on my website.

Brickyard A.

It's known from historical sources that the craft of manufaturing bricks from burnt clay has been practised in Schleswig-Holstein (the northernmost state of Germany) since the 13th century.
The first documented brick production facility started production in the year 1520.

More than 1.000 former brick factories have been identified in the Schleswig-Holstein area.
This is one of them.
It was built around 1920. There are no informations about the closing date.

Hospital P. (Part 2)

There is nothing more I can tell you about the history of this place.
All I was able to find out you can find in Part 1.

Here is the rest of the photos.
I really liked the mold on the walls in the stairwell. It really was a neat place to visit on a sunny day. The sun worked nicely with the wood and the windows and the hallways...

Hospital P.

I visited this location after meeting up for breakfast with a couple of fellow explorers from my area.
The hospital was built in a hanseatic city in Germany during the 1930s.
It was first used by the military as a base for the air force. The area nearby was used as a testing center for new airplanes and weapons.
During World War II, the base was turned into a military hospital, and was operated by the town after the war.
The hospital was eventually taken over by private investors, closed down in 2004 and abandoned in 2005.
Two of the buildings are used as storage space by the city's public library.

Here are the first couple of photos.
