    Visited the wapping tunnels Liverpool and a big thanks to @blacksnake for taking us down there and giving us all the history of the tunnels. Also @telf @will knot and @dangle_angle thanks lads was a really good day and had a good laugh enjoyed the wirewool spinning and the dangley things hanging from the tunnel roof I really wasn't expecting them really nice. N with my history and a few pictures .... The Liverpool and Manchester Railway (L&MR) system provided the world’s first passenger railway stations where services were hauled by timetabled locomotives. The railway line opened on 15 September 1830 and originally ran from Liverpool’s passenger terminus [Crown Street] to its counterpart Manchester terminus [Liverpool Road]. The L&MR thus also became the first inter-city railway. The route extended some 31 miles (50 km) and was an outstanding engineering achievement of its era. It included the world’s first railway tunnel under a major city: the 1.3 mile (2 km) Wapping Tunnel was bored through sandstone from Wapping Goods station, at the southern end of Liverpool docks, to the district of Edge Hill. The railway also included a viaduct, comprising 9 arches, across the Sankey Valley and a 2 miles long rock cutting at Olive Mount. When the line opened, George Stephenson’s locomotive “Rocket” conveyed a number of dignitaries, including the then prime minister, the Duke of Wellington.

    Now as a rule I don't explore houses and I dont explore alone, so this morning I decided it would be a good idea to go and explore and abandoned house all on my own. But with a marriage proposal from one of our members already under my belt today what could go wrong? well....err nothing it seems. I have no history whatsoever on this place but I do need to say a huge thank you to a non member explorer for the intel on this.Thank you miss Bugs. On with the pics. This pace has been empty a long while by the looks of things but it has been emptied of all items and somehow still seems to hang on to lots and lots of charm. After finding the entry point I decided to do away with the usual surefooted stealthy ninja technique and after much deliberation decided that a method of falling head first into the building and landing on my face instead would be much more dignified!!! Well I was in at least. [/url] On google earth there are loads of Volvos here in various stages of derp but they have all been removed apart from one but a fantastic little explore this was, really enjoyed it and if I wasn't such a girl cus I was on my own I'd have stayed longer but without the chuckle brothers as backup it was a quick visit 8/10 from me this place and in case you are wondering the entry technique works just as well for exfil. Thanks for looking.

    Bletchley Park was the central site for British Code-breakers During World War Two. D Block - Enigma Work G Block - Traffic Analysis & Deception Operations. Most German messages decrypted at Bletchley were produced by one or another Enigma Cipher machine but an important minority were produced by the even more complicated twelve-rotor Lorenz SZ42 on-line Teleprinter Cipher Machine. Well we planed this in advance as we were unsure how easy it would be to get onto but to our suprise we walked right on and into G block no security that we saw. We had a good mooch around taking lots of photos and Dan done vidoeing as always. We started in G Block and then went onto another building. Well this place was out of this world so much history lots of records found that should have been destroyed but never seemed to be two copy's of the Enigma machine lots of old tech in the place too. We could not belive our eyes or luck. So much more to see there but we had to leave due to time. But we will be going back again. Please Enjoy. This was the second building we went into once Dan found a way in. Our way into the second building. There's over 200 photos so feel free to check out my Flickr page.

    One day short of a whole year since my last explore and I finally got my exploring boots on again and visited this old house which is cram packed full of stuff, so much so its actually hard to get around inside. Whoever owned the place must have been an avid car enthusiast as there are loads of old cars out the back. They look to have been untouched for years, they are well rotten and heavily overgrown. Its a real shame they ended up like this as there are a few classics amongst them. Here are a few pictures. Mostly of the cars, I didn’t spend too much time in the house as to be honest I’m not too keen on rummaging through stuff in derp houses.

    This old cottage is only a few doors down from the house I spent my first 25 years, and from memory it has always been in a very poor state as far back as I can remember. According to local 'common knowledge', this house belonged to a Mr Byrd who was a bit of an agriculturist and a hermit. Throughout my childhood I would always see him driving around in his flatbed truck, just roaming between the local town and back, and I would usually see him sat in his truck on his land just watching the world go by. His house was never treated with much respect, and it was left to overgrow and become part of the natural surroundings, as well as his 'garden'. Apparently the house also has a garage, of which I have never seen because it has been engulfed by so much foliage. Mr Byrd was removed from his house within recent years on health and safety grounds, due to the dire state of the property, and was relocated to a nearby B&B. Nevertheless he returned to his humble abode, I'm assuming because he still felt it was his 'home', though he made a habit of sleeping in his truck every night - the house really was not fit for anybody to live there. I have always been unsure whether anybody actually resided in the property, though I recently received news that Mr Byrd had passed away. Feeling confident that nobody could be living there, surely, I decided to give it a visit. Gaining access was tricky; I couldn't simply go through the front door which meant I had to find an entrance around the back, away from the prying eyes of my previous neighborhood. This wasn't as easy as it sounds, due to the immense volume of foliage and brambles that had grown over the years. By the time I got to the rear of the house I was bleeding in several places from the several thorn bushes I'd had to crawl through (that's dedication for you! :P). In my opinion, from the stories the interior told, Mr Byrd used to have a wife who sadly passed away many years ago, and child(ren) who have since flown the nest; the house holds many female items such as purses, shoes, dressing gowns and a whole wardrobe of clothes, as well as many children's books. Again in my own opinion, after his wife had passed away, Mr Byrd entered into a spiral of depression and loneliness, and time in the house stood still; Mr Byrd didn't want to touch or move anything. After a while, the house started to accumulate junk and dust, and many of natures creatures moved in. With Mr Byrd not having any motivation, the house was not maintained at all and things started to fall apart. After many years in this vicious circle, nature removed the face of the house from the street and it became forgotten Thanks for taking the time to read, and there are more photos on my Flickr.

    An old van I found while hiking in Scottish Cairngorms years ago. Not very exciting but some of you might enjoy rusty vehicles. :-) I regret not taking photos of other cars or entering the house, but I had a toddler with me so didn't want to spend too much time among old nails and broken glass. Resprayed in red which suggests it was a postal van.

    A Welsh road trip, so what could go wrong ?? Tbolt, myself and the one only known as Snapt set off in the, very, early hours of the morning and well it all went a bit League of Gentlemen. It should be noted that the chain of bizarre events that unfolded before us fell firmly at the feet of a crazy English pensioner (did I say crazy ?) what I meant to say was deluded. Said f**kwitt currently resides in deepest Pembrokeshire luring unsuspecting explorers to his lair with false promises of urbex gold. As my Mum once said to me "you want to be carefull on that internet, its full of f***ing nutters". So when in Wales with at least a 5 hour drive home, 7 hours for poor old Snapt, it becomes derp hunting time. "Oh look its a coach graveyard in the middle of nowhere, apply the brakes on the car !! " It started to rain, again, and so we quickly returned to the car a tad wet. Snapt started up the Mystery Machine for our onward journey and we drove on into the mist.

    Visited with @dangle_angle one morning before work. We had a heads up on this one so not being to far away we thought a little look was in order for the day. There isn't any history on the house because it's just a house well not any that I could find. And it doesn't have a name so I'll just call it the axe house has there was a few around the place. A nice big place with a grand entrance hallway. And lots of wood. Ok so here's a few photos I took ...

    This is the story of how a trip to a dam turned into a much bigger mooch into what seems to be a lost world. The pics were taken over 4 visits during 2016. We start at the base of this pretty impressive dam, it stands 148 ft tall and it is 148 ft thick at its base. There is no spillway so excess water spills over the top of the dam creating a pretty awesome waterfall. An event that is quite rare so we'd be lucky to see this. At the base are blocks of concrete about 1metre cubed and look like tank traps, these apparently break up the impact of the water during overflow and limit erosion at the base. The road leading here once continued along the valley but now crosses the outflow before heading back along the opposite side. the outflow goes beneath the road through a large culvert...... DSCF0294 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF0325 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr Not one for ignoring a tunnel my other 'alf heads straight through the culvert.... DSCF0333 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr Just a few feet beyond the culvert is this sight..I couldnt believe my eyes. Totally secluded with no route to either side of this bridge we wonder what it was for and what else is here DSCF0335 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr After some online research i discover one photo of a bridge leading to a mill and after a failed attempt to cross a marsh and impassable undergrowth, a slide down a muddy bank got me to the top of the bridge DSCF1023 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr only to discover this wasnt the bridge i'd seen a photo of. This bridge did however lead to a mill although this is now mostly under the redirected road, This was the only evidence of a mill that once stood 4 storeys high DSCF1036 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr scrambling back up the bank we find a muddy path and head further downstream. We've not gone far before we discover various lumps of stone and some remains of what was obviously an old mill. This was apparently a paper, demolished about 100 years ago with nature doing a good job of reclaiming what is left DSCF1413 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF1414 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr Couldnt work out what this pit was for..a massive timber straddled the hole and water seemed to cascade from everywhere around it... DSCF1405 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr These, i think, were bleaching vats DSCF1404 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr alongside the mill was this impressive weir, the river was somehow finding a route around this and was rejoining down stream DSCF1403 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr and what was this....the bridge i had originally found online. A little bit wonky and very narrow it still led to yet another mill, an intact mill at that....well...partly intact DSCF1406 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF1427 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr the bottom level was just a path through DSCF1410 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF1411 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr to here.. DSCF1439 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF1449 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF1443 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF1440 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF1441 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF1448 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr down by the river this looks like the tail race DSCF1407 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr outside is a much easier way back to the road, The base of a chimney stands on the left of the steps, which turned out to be a not so easy route back up. Back to the car and a quick drive further downstream to a "private" woods to look for something described on old maps as "caves". private or not these woods were certainly creepy DSCF0364 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF0361 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr Not caves but "Bee Boles" or "Skeps" these were used to put wicker beehives in during wet weather DSCF0351 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr one last stop on the way home, upstream from the dam is this 400 year old pack horse bridge. I love these things! DSCF0287 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr After a period of heavy rain we returned to get this shot.. boothwood dam by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr Hope i didnt drag on too long...

    This was a permission visit in fact a paid tour, well worth £10 if you get chance. This is a beautiful and Iconic building which to my shame I knew little about until yesterday. Visited with Zer081 and the legend known only as Judderman. First we needed food and beer then onto the tour. Brief History of the Fire Station London Road Fire Station, opened in 1906, remains one of Manchester’s most iconic buildings to this day. Described as the “finest in the world” it was conceived by George Parker, who was appointed as the city’s fire chief in 1899 and had a reputation for designing excellent fire stations in other British cities. Built around a large central courtyard, and four storeys high, as well as the brigade headquarters it housed a police station, ambulance station, gas-meter testing station, coroner’s court, a branch bank, houses for the fire chief and his deputy and apartments for 32 firemen’s families. The fire station is most famous for its unashamed lavishness and extravagant styling. The pseudo-classical design boats an exterior faced with tawny Burmantoft’s terracotta and Accrington brick, generously decorated with classical figures, coats-of-arms and other detail. Four symbolic eagles watch over the city from the top of a 150 ft domed hose tower. Domes, gables, window arches and downspouts are all adorned with splendid sculpture and artwork. The completed project cost £142,000, leading to claims of over-extravagance on the part of the city council. From 1941 to 1948, the fire station operated as part of the National Fire Service, which met the needs of wartime firefighting. Under the NFS banner, London Road served at various times as Fire Force Headquarters, Divisional Headquarters, Control Room and Officers’ Training School. After 1948, the station once more became the headquarters of the Manchester Fire Brigade and a training school opened there to train recruits from Manchester, the North West, Wales and beyond. It served as the training centre for the Army Fire Service for several years and was famous for coaching officer trainees from Commonwealth countries as well as many Middle Eastern petroleum companies. After serving Manchester City Council and the National Fire Service for 68 years, ownership of the building passed to the new Greater Manchester Council on local government reorganisation in 1974. From then onwards, the station began a gradual wind-down, with the vehicle workshops, 999 control room, police station and firemen’s flats being vacated in turn. In 1986, London Road fire station answered its last emergency call. It was replaced with a new complex at Thompson Street and the building was sold to a large hotel chain. A few pics but it was dark inside and with no tripod and not much photo time they were a bit rushed with high ISO so quality is not good. London Road Fire Station It seems this chaps shoes are quite remarkable DSC_4266 by T Bolt, on Flickr Was alright this for a tenner can be recomended if you are local and fancy seeing the place before it's too late. Thanks for looking.

    East Fortune is a small village in South-East Scotland, famous for the airfield constructed in 1915 to help protect Britain against German Zeppelins during the WWI. In 1922 a hospital was founded on a nearby plot of land. Named The East Fortune Hospital it initially served as a tuberculosis sanatorium until the WWII when the unit was moved to the Bangour village about 40 miles to the west (closed in 2004 and now derelict). Falling number of the tuberculosis cases in Scotland cause the hospital to be converted to a clinic for mentally handicapped in 1956. It served that purpose until 1997 when it was finally closed down for good with the patients transferred to a nearby unit in Haddington. There are asbestos dust warnings all over the place so mask is highly recommended however it seems that most of it was already removed judging by the missing ceilings in some of the buildings.

    Hi everyone, I first visited this place in 2015, most of it was gutted by fire, pleased to say no one was living there at the time. Missed a few bits last time, like the swimming pool in the back garden, but to my defence the garden is very overgrown and the cover over the pool was covered in leaves. Visited with non member big ears, and despite the massive hole in the fence managed to catch her foot and end up face down in the dirt, no damage done. Hope you enjoy the pics. Spot the swimming pool. Remains of the bathing hut. Thanks for looking in WB.

    The Russian term Дом культуры (pronounced dom cooltory) is often translated as "Palace of Culture", even though Дом literally means "house". Both Palace and House terms were used in the Soviet Union however the House was often simply smaller, located in a lesser town or village. Palace of Culture is the Eastern European equivalent of a Community Centre and can be found in almost every city and town east from the German border. Subsidised by local councils and often the state it was a centre of the social life in the Soviet Union, with gyms, art classes, chess clubs and some compulsory propaganda thrown in since The Party membership was pretty much a requirement for the job. Дом культуры "ЭНЕРГЕТИК" (House of Culture Energetik) in Pripyat cared for the bodies and souls of the locals, offering a gym hall, boxing ring, a swimming pool, a theatre hall, a telephone exchange* and the local propaganda office. *phone lines in the Soviet states were scarce, ordinary citizens often had to wait for many years to have one installed in their house (if at all). During the most intense political turmoils all calls were monitored by the political police and any long-distance or international calls had to be booked in advance. The request would be processed at the local exchange and if approved, you'd receive a call-back with the operator manually connecting connecting you to the right number. I highly recommend watching the brilliant movie "The Lives of Others" if you're interested in this subject. Two reminders of the long gone empire stand today in the theatre hall. The Mikhail Gorbachev's portrait and the "CCCP 60" canvas installed there in 1982 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The time in the Energetik hasn't stopped in April 1986 like it has for many other public places in the Chernobyl Zone. The final major event in the Palace was the trial of the plant operators and managers. Shift engineers became the scapegoats for the poorly designed, documented and managed power plant while designers and politicians who approved a inherently flawed and potentially deadly reactor were left without any charges. Enjoy and apologies for my poor English. ENERGETIK on the right-hand side, as seen from the roof of the Hotel Polissya: The theatre hall. Pitch black with few beams of light seeping through the door and the window. I climbed rotten platform on the backstage, set my camera to 30 seconds exposure and had all 3 of us waving torches around to take this photo: Top company! The backstage with the electric curtains motors, various lights and other bits, plus some rotting costumes: And a little bonus, (probably) the most iconic landmark in Pripyat:

    Ladies and Gentlemen! The book of my choice, the Soviet Ghosts photo album, has arrived today, I had to pass it around at work as people wanted to see it, top photos and write-ups in it! Thank you again for choosing my photo, as a token of gratitude I'll be posting a nice report from a site in Scotland next week if my plan doesn't fail.

    Snapt, myself and Tbolt continued to trundle around the country roads of Wales. We had quickly realised Wales was a lot like the Lake District but without the traffic and the Japanese tourists. Wales was good but the weather was shite - just like the Lake District. Having escaped the clutches of a madman earlier the day before we imagined that back in deepest Pembrokeshire a strange man was playing with his dogs and fingering overly large cups of tea whilst sniffing bottles of festering milk. How we laughed nervously, looking carefully over our shoulders. We had had one very lucky escape and whilst the weather was now truly awful we stumbled into a little gem of an abandoned Wesleyan Methodist chapel. Built in 1833 and then rebuilt in 1868 the chapel closed in 1973. No externals, the place is enveloped with overgrowth and it at risk of collapse at some point in the near future. A gem of a little chapel, we rather liked this one a lot 10/10

    Visited with @GK_WAX another early morning start to the first location that we wanted to do but didn't turn out as planned. Due to security and a rather large German Shepard dog chasing us back over the fence. A close call but we will leave that place for another time. The back to the car and of to TG green pottery.quite a large site in a bit of a mess but still some nice features. There was also a couple of barn owls but didn't manage to get a photo of them so here's a few photos I got and a bit of history.. A proud history T.G. Green was founded by Thomas Goodwin Green back in 1864. Rumour has it that he bought up an existing pottery factory while he was on his honeymoon with his new wife, Mary Tenniel, the sister of Punch and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland illustrator Sir John Tenniel. One of the companies most popular lines has always been Cornishware which was first produced in 1924. It was created using a nifty lathe-turning technique that scraped blue slip away from its beautiful ceramics to reveal white bands of clay beneath. Those stripes reminded an employee of the blue skies and white-crested waves of Cornwall, which is how Cornishware got its name. Iconic design

    HISTORY: built in 1914 this was a hot spot for the locals. In the 60's the kinks played here as well as other top groups at the time. A popular social club and wedding venue as well as a northern soul club known for its spring dancefloor. As most social clubs these days numbers dwindled and it closed its doors two years ago ready now for demolition for guess what... a housing development. My Visit: been keeping an eye on this for a while with no entry but the workmen started emptying the place and a few of the local chavs left an entry point so i made my visit.

    This is my first report from somewhere near my hometown and oddly enough I don’t really know this area that well (I avoid crossing the border into Warwickshire at the best of times). So when my sister said “so whats all this urbexin shinanigans then? And when are you taking me?” I felt obliged to find a suitable place. And to be honest I wasn’t sure if this was suitable. Nevertheless off i went with sister and her fella. After less than 20 mins we were there and my google earth recon had paid off as we parked nearly at the old gates in a disused bus stop. After a short walk along what was once a driveway (now overgrown) it was evident that some activity had taken place recently, Trees had been cleared from half of the 13 acre site and there was a whole load of hardcore/ rubble piled up near the house. But, did this face look bothered? Nope. No door and no secca so easy peasy, in we went….. To be greeted by a stack of burnt timber and debris, shit this place has been burnt…Quite badly in places but looking up we see that the entire building now has a temporary roof of sorts, (more than it had a few years ago) indicating that someone may be about to start work on this place. It was recently sold at auction with a guide price of £150,000 including over 13 acres of land which I assume is to become a housing estate. Anyway, heres some history then some pics…… ""The site, which had previously formed part of the Wolford and Halle Fields, was part of an Enclosure Award of just over 24 acres which was made to the Wilcox family in 1760. This passed by inheritance to Abraham Awson, who in turn left the property to Stephen Freeman in 1798. Freeman (1774-1856) was a member of a long-established Coventry family of Unitarian tradesmen, and in 1806-7 built the present villa. The OS Surveyor's drawing (1813) shows the house set in smaller gardens than at present to the north, east and south sides, but Greenwood's Map of Warwickshire (1820) indicates that by that date the basic form of the surviving landscape had been achieved. Stephen Freeman's brother, William (1773-1849), was an amateur artist of local note (Fretton 1883), and may have been responsible for laying out the grounds at Ryton; he spent his latter years at Ryton House. Following Stephen Freeman's death in 1856, the property was owned in turn by his nieces, Catherine (Mrs Charles Twamley d 1883) and Mary. Miss Mary Freeman died in 1895, leaving the estate to her nephew, Charles Browett. Browett, a Coventry solicitor, owned Ryton House until after the Second World War, when it became a Royal British Legion Club, in which use it continues today (1999). ""PRINCIPAL BUILDING Ryton House (listed grade II) was built for Stephen Freeman by the Coventry builder Richard Booth in 1806-7. This house was based on a design by an unknown London architect, possibly Robert Lugar (listed building description), which had been commissioned in 1801; a further plan was provided in 1804 . The original house comprised a central two-storey block with an unusual part-glazed attic storey fronted by a balustrade to the north. To east and west of the main block were single-storey wings, with bow windows facing north. The house was extended westwards at an early date to provide additional service quarters. Stephen Freeman commissioned the Coventry builder J L Ackroyd to raise the single-storey wings to full height in 1850 and a conservatory (no longer surviving) was also added to the house in the mid or late C19. With the exception of the demolition of the western extensions after 1946 and a small late C20 addition to the north facade, the exterior of Ryton House has remained substantially unchanged from the late C19 DSCF5084 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF5148 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF5149 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF5087 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF5100 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF5122 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF5126 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF5147 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF5124 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF5131 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF5105 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF5108 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF5114 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF5113 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF5111 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF5110 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF5107 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr This cedar tree is fricken enormous, at least 6ft across the trunk and twice as high as the house, the pic really doesnt do it justice DSCF5144 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr DSCF5109 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr My fave bit? without doubt. the cellars. And does my sister get what we're about now? Oh yes, she even made a cool little video of her own.. Thanks for looking guys....

    Get yer lens off the camera for some F-0 fun, it's trial and error and best done with a 50mm prime, and easier through live view. If you are using a crop try a 35mm prime. Usually I try it wide open which means you need some blue-tac on the aperture slide, for this shot I allowed it to remain stopped down. It's aptly known as free lensing.

    This was another stop on the Wales tour we did with @GK_WAX and @dangle_angle and dylan.afrer the early start this was the first stop of the day where we met dylan. This big old house is in a amazing location.there isn't any history on this place is simply a abandoned house and has been named AR house I presume because of the trunk in the hallway with the AR initials on it.
