Hertfordshire: Urban explorers have explore abandoned hotel

A team of urban explorers have shared an eerie video after discovering an abandoned hotel in Hertfordshire.

The team – known as the Lost Adventurers – have shared creepy footage showing the inside of the abandoned Bobsleigh Inn hotel in Bovingdon.

The owners of the 16th century building transformed it into a hotel and renamed it The Bobsleigh Inn after their son won a gold medal in the event in the 1964 winter Olympics.

Chilling images show furniture rotting away and the hotel’s rooms falling into disrepair after years of neglect.

The swimming pool can be seen emptied of water apart from a puddle of stagnant brown liquid in the deep end.

Closer to the camera, leaves are seen scattered over the poolside tiles after panels in the glass roof caved in.

Another image shows an explorer at the entrance of a ransacked off, with documents and smashed computers strewn on the floor.

In the basement, a metal shelving unit has become red with rust as it lies among other discarded objects.

The Lost adventurers say that the hotel was originally a 16th-century manor house until in the late 18th century when it became a country club.

They added: “Parts of the building were extended over time and eventually, in 1964, it was renamed Bobsleigh Inn.

“It was named after the owner’s son, who had won a gold medal in the bobsleigh during the 1964 winter Olympics in Innsbruck, Austria.







Many celebrities stayed at the hotel

“While the hotel was a country club during the Second World War, many celebrities stayed there while entertaining troops at the nearby airbase, including Bob Hope, James Stewart and Glenn Miller.

“The most interesting find was the rotunda building that was full of hundreds of pieces of furniture.

It was all stacked up to the ceiling and still in amazing condition.







It is thought that the furniture left to rot was worth thousands of pounds

“There must be thousands of pounds of furniture just left to rot away, as the hotel closed down in 2014.”

This comes as brave home buyers could own their own estate when a dilapidated country manor goes under the hammer for the first time in 60 years.

Grade II-listed Bicton Manor lies in the Cornwall countryside and has far-reaching panoramic views into Dartmoor, Cornwall Live reports.

Those brave enough to take on such a project would ideally have more than a few DIY skills or at least some power tools and paint brush.

Agents describes it as one of Cornwall’s most historical properties, with records that go back almost 1,000 years. It even has a mention in the Doomsday Book which was finished in 1086.

Meanwhile, urban explorers have delivered a different view of one of the busiest spots in North Wales.

The explorers, who wish to remain anonymous, discovered a concealed passage running underneath a bridge across the A55 at Colwyn Bay.

As first reported by North Wales Live, the group entered the tunnel through a “heavy steel lidded manhole” and climbed down steel steps. Then they tried to cross to the other side of the bridge.
