Botanic Gardens - Abandoned Underground
I like exploring derelict/abandoned hospitals, underground stations etc and thought I'd post up details of my most recent trip.
Glasgow Botanics Station
The Botanics station was opened on 10th August 1896 and closed on 6th February 1939. Access to the tunnel is now buried in woods to the rear of the botanic gardens. On entering the site, there is an initial tunnel leading to the underground botanics station, followed by a much longer tunnel leading onto the next station. Some pictures:
Stairs leading to nowhere
What? This was abandoned in the middle of one of the tunnels
Some sort of weird deposit on the walls. Lime or calcium perhaps?
The actual station
You'll have a long wait for a train, mate
And a video taken on the day:
YouTube - Glasgow Botanic Gardens Station
Thanks for looking :-)
wow kate,that's amazing,a little creepy,glad to see
you wern't on your own:-)
do you know why it got shut down ?
Thanks Lainey. It was closed due to wartime economy. Although the station was underground, the station building was at ground level. Here's a picture of the original building
The old steps that can been seen in the video led up into this building.
that's a beautiful old building,shame it was shut down,
have you got a link to how it used to look,i bet it was amazing.
This is the only one I could find, taken in 1906. I had another one, I'm sure of it. If I find it I'll post it up.
To me it is very creepy...in addition to being very cool. Had your video had been set to different music I would have been on the edge of my seat wating for something dark & scary to jump out of the shadows. It looks like nowhere I'd want to be walking alone. Has this location ever been used on a movie set? I can think of a many scary movies that I have seen where this location would have been a perfect setting :-)
Thanks for sharing!
All in all, it took over three hours to walk the tunnels. It's not been used in any movies as far as I'm aware, but you're right - it would be an excellent setting.
Nice and a bit creepy and that's Limestone creeping down i'm quite certain.
That was a very interesting video and I agree with the others, it WAS a bit creepy.Thanks for sharing it with us.
graffiti artist are extremely talented
