    One of only a few of my discoveries which I have exclusive (at least I didn't find any pictures on the www). I spotted this small farmhouse a few years ago on one of my rides but unfortunately there was no way inside. But happily I decided to keep in mind. This year I detected an open window. Have been in there twice since. #1 DSC09261-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC09282-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC09283-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC09314-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC09268-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC09266-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC09311-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC09267-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC09269-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC09312-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC09285-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC09273-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC09274-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC09292-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC09295-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #16 DSC09278-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #17 DSC09275-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #18 DSC09302-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #19 DSC09276-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #20 DSC09277-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #21 DSC09299-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #22 DSC09304-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #23 DSC09281-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #24 DSC09272-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #25 DSC09271-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #26 DSC09307-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr

    For my debut at this forum I introduce you to this hotel that was closed in 2009. Although it is situated perfectly in a nice touristic town there is no conclusive concept for the building. Currently the owner is in discussion with an investor who has a, let's say, quite "progressive" idea concerning the old fashioned town. I wouldn't give € for the investor's idea in this surrounding area. I visited the hotel twice (2016 and 2017). Decay starts.

    Designed by Architect to the Metropolitan Police, John Dixon Butler FRIBA, the Greenwich Magistrates’ Court opened in 1909 with an integral police station. The Symmetrical frontage is faced in Portland Stone in a free Classical style and features a central semi-circular tablet with Royal Coat of Arms, carved in stone by Lawrence Turner. Inside, the entranceway leads to the former police station foyer which has a mosaic tiled floor with MP monogram (for Metropolitan Police) laid by Messrs Diespeker. The foyer leads onto Court 1, the main courtroom which is toplit with a decorative plaster frieze around the light well and a monogram of Edward VII in plaster above the bench. The Courtroom has mostly original fittings and the bench is in a curved recess, up three steps. The court has its own custody suite. The suite consists of nine prison cells with associated facilities for booking in prisoners etc. Visited here with @AndyK! a few months back. We sat on this for a while as we were hoping to return and see if we missed any bits but haven't got around to it. Anyway, I think we saw all the best bits. Here are some of my photos to begin with, and a few taken by Andy at the end. I also poached the history from his website report, so cheers for that! A few shots of the custody suite from Andy Thanks for looking

    Our original plan was to spend Christmas here but weather forecasts were dire and we didn't want to die a watery death so we binned the idea off and went to Wales instead! Planning our summer road trip and this place cropped up again and it was game on! We'd do the island before heading off to foreign lands for a couple of weeks. After spending the previous night watching an awesome lightning storm we were hoping for good weather! Waking up a few hours later in the back of the limo to see rain I snuggled back into my sleeping bag and went back to sleep. When I next awoke the sky was grey and it was drizzly, and with an uncertain forecast we decided to check out a few alternative locations instead. A few fails and some epic jungleering through the undergrowth later, the sun decided to come out and we bit the bullet and decided Operation Island Infiltration was back on! A few hours later and we were busy unloading gear (lots and lots and lots of gear) by the sea and Riddlers was busy blowing up his dingy ready to take us out! There appeared to be quite a bit of interest in our little escapade but throwing caution to the wind the first three intrepid explorers set sail and it wasn't long before all 7 of us were safely on dry land. We set up camp and then went for a bit of an explore, its a lovely little place with lots to see and I proper enjoyed just mooching about whilst the boys played with the cannons and drank beer. We had fire and food before heading to bed for an early night, the Merry Prankster set up his projector and fell asleep to South Park, The Riddlers got shouted at for playing shit music and keeping people awake and me and Jobs had a hammock fail and ended up on the floor! In the morning we were getting ready to leave but when we looked out across the water it was bedlam, the police boat, RNLI and Lifeguards were out in force, initially thinking we had been spotted we awaited their arrival, but much to our bemusement they appeared to be clearing the harbour!! A quick google later and we discovered there was an airshow just about to start and for safety reasons they were clearing the public from underneath the display area. Well almost all the people, we had the choice seats directly underneath as bi-planes looped and dipped across the skies, dropping low enough for them to see us and give us a friendly wave as they passed by! After enjoying the show we got ready to leave, with The Riddlers at the helm, Bigjobs and Motionless Escape were the first to go. We watched them bobbing across the waves until we saw them land but an age passed and there was no sign of them returning. One phone call later and we discovered a pin had broken on the boat and they were frantically trying to fix it. So with visions of having to be rescued by the Lifeguards we waited and waited and waited, then boom across the harbour we spotted him! THey'd fixed the boat and The Riddlers was making his way back Not long after we were back on dry land chattering like excitable children on a school trip planning our next stop! History Located in the heart of the harbour lies Drake Island. The island was originally called St Nicholas' Island and later St Michael's Island before it was renamed and dedicated to Sir Francis Drake in the late Tudor period. Originally is accommodated an artillery battery, this was followed by a larger garrison and during the Civil War, the Island played a key role in the defence of Plymouth against Royalist Attack. In the mid-sixteenth century, the first fortification was commissioned as a result of the war with France. A stone and turf wall built and a garrison was installed in 1551. In 1580 a disagreement between the people of Plymouth and the Government over who had responsibility for paying for the defence it was taken into state ownership. By 1590s a garrison of 100 men and 40-50 guns were installed, increasing further as the war with Spain continued. After the restoration of the monarchy after the Civil War, the island was used as a prison for notable Parliamentary prisoners. Major General John Lambert, the successor to Oliver Cromwell, was held here from 1670-84. Also incarcerated here was Colonel Robert Lilburn, one of the regicides. The defences visible today mainly date from the mid-nineteenth century when the large casemates were constructed complete with supporting magazines and accommodation. Finally, the Island was garrisoned by just under 500 soldiers for much of WWII supporting coastal defence and anti-air operations. In 1963 Plymouth Council obtained a lease from the Crown and a youth centre was opened in 1964, coming under the custody of the Mayflower Trust until they surrendered the lease in 1989. The Island was bought by Dan McCauley in 1995 with a view to building a hotel and helipad. Initial plans were rejected due to the nesting egrets on the Island but as of April 2017 a further plan has been submitted with protection plans in place and work is expected to start in the not too distant future. Hope you enjoyed looking

    A very early start for this one. And thanks for my invite from the other 2 lads I went with @GK-WAX and @albinojay arrived here in the pitch black early hours. Luckily we didn’t have any trouble finding our way inside. We’re we found ourselves a room to wait for it to come light enough to have a look around. Watching the bustop across the road. That’s one seriously busy bustop. And another 2 guys turned up giving us a surprise we exchanged a few word and we all carried on. Here’s a few photos and history.. HISTORY Located in Southall, Middlesex, in the west of Greater London. The King’s Hall was built in 1916 and was designed by architect Sir Alfred Gelder of Hull. The King’s Hall building has a 3-storey red brick and stone facade. It was operated by the Uxbridge and Southall Wesleyan Mission and it was soon screening religious films. By 1926, it was operating as a regular cinema, still managed by the Methodist church. The King’s Hall Cinema was closed in 1937. It then reverted back to a Methodist Church use as the King’s Hall Methodist Church. They vacated the building in January 2013" 6C566847-A7B2-4B03-8B35-21A83B59D5DD by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 11C63D3A-09F5-4CAF-B8DC-2D9DBAE3A34F by Lavino lavino, on Flickr DF9E3CFA-46FB-4F59-8E89-05044F4D4E0D by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 291685A1-C7A5-4C05-AE0D-EAA5E9E3BE3D by Lavino lavino, on Flickr A942D367-319B-4051-9965-CBC9BE782D97 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr B6451F47-AED7-46C9-BC1F-FBB8716DC866 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr EFEFBB87-D905-4675-B792-572677174349 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 4FF422D0-9457-4DBB-A0FD-B3A59E0105DA by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 6388F9DD-1E6B-43E1-B475-C54D7702ADD7 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 8F93F594-6E02-49A8-90EE-77146630400A by Lavino lavino, on Flickr F0EA6489-742D-4A55-B053-E9407A809A35 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr D6912FEB-7A41-4075-BF3F-18CC92A71332 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 82C5654A-58D8-4F3D-ABA7-6FFA3CE99615 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr EF6C4F61-3E43-4EA3-99E3-79E7A4CD7986 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 7E8CA3B9-870B-4597-BE8C-822A743FA4B8 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 05FFBC9B-A065-4D18-ADAA-AC06F324A28C by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 596A95BD-32DA-4213-9C8E-06061841A60B by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 732BCB12-D01B-4F4E-9ADF-B1C86B4F2D95 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 0CCE03D2-1009-4B27-BF40-1FC90159D5C5 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 170B80EE-4ADD-4D0C-9AEE-076DA9AA07D3 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 31BAC71F-DB78-462D-ABC1-08C4DAB3AC19 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 31BAC71F-DB78-462D-ABC1-08C4DAB3AC19 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 2A00922B-01E0-4236-9129-02F812E7E710 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr DF19BB97-1E29-4ECC-8B17-A1A4B30B7C95 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr E4354E42-97FB-4BA5-BC76-2304A4DF14CC by Lavino lavino, on Flickr D3A585BC-9EA7-4A96-A87E-58351FCC62B2 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr C88FDA25-E4EC-4269-9D64-A91725F507F2 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 9A4FC978-0A5C-43D3-A340-BF4ABF5EC679 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 6FED0FA9-4A21-4C0B-ABB0-1D6C5EB0721D by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 5056F5C5-4624-400D-BF20-7ECF2C724B3E by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 0D7DEB4E-2C2C-4A67-82C6-A80B4153E5DF by Lavino lavino, on Flickr E3A4C8B4-8A02-4816-85BF-51EED2EDFEFD by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 18858080-1428-48B5-8F3F-2416CDCDF481 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr 2FA9A65E-7F5B-4BE6-A4E8-2418BAABEB71 by Lavino lavino, on Flickr

    Crank Caverns have been on my radar for a while, with its mythical history of child eating dwarves, oddly shaped body bags, cannibalism and a hidden chapel who wouldn't want to go and take a look? With a history like that, we decided to brave the night and risk life and limb to go in search of the evil creatures of the caverns. Meeting up with some friends we scurried through the dark to the edge of the woods. Wondering what awaited us we made our way through the trees to the cavern entrance, listening out for the scurry of tiny angry dwarf feet! Much to our disappointment, we heard no such thing so made our way in! It was a little damp and muddy in places but We explored every nook and cranny possible, with one of the lads crawling through some that weren't even possible! He is like a crawly ninja of small holes and gaps that do not exist! Despite our extensive searching, we didn't come across any dwarves or a single human bone and with no evidence of a secret church we called it a night and went our separate ways. Was a fun night out with a cracking bunch of people History Sandstone quarrying began here as early as 1730. As the quarry expanded, the cost of purchasing land to open cast mine it increased, so it was decided to opt for a different method. Instead of quarrying out the stone, they would mine it out, following a seam of stone until it ran out. This resulted in the network of caves, tunnels and shafts we see today. Rainford Delph is listed as a Colliery by 1854, under the ownership of Charles Howarth or Yorkshire Charlie as he was known locally by 1880. Mining finally ceased and the woods and caverns were used as a game reserve by the Earl of Derby until 1939 when they became a storage facility for ammunition for the anti-aircraft position at Crank. After the war, the caverns ceased use as a game reserve. Myths and Legends Child Eating Dwarves "Vicious dwarves" were once rumoured to inhabit the labyrinth of caverns in Crank. In the late 18th century four children decided to explore the sandstone caverns and vanished. One child survived and told a terrifying tale about small old men with beards, who talked in an unknown language, they killed his three friends and chased him. The petrified child stumbled over human bones in the caves and finally managed to scramble through an opening to the surface as a hand was grabbing at his ankle. The authorities became concerned because a number of people had gone missing in the area near the cave entrances and apparently they sent in the army to install gates and bars. It is apparently undecided if this was to keep people out or keep something in. Oddly shaped body bags Apparently about 17 or 18 years ago two young lads entered the caverns and got lost, they had told their parents where they were going and when they didn’t arrive home their parents informed the police. After a couple of days searching the police sealed off the area and removed to body bags from the caverns. This is where it gets strange, they were also reported to have removed 7 more body bags from the caverns, one of the bags was said to have not been in a body shape but was square. Cannibalism There is a story about some scouts who went down the caverns for a look around and at the end of the day one of the scouts had not come back out. Eventually, they called out Cave Rescue to try and find the boy. After a long search they found him or what was left of him, allegedly the boy was partly eaten. The parents of the child wanted it all kept secret so the press didn't get hold of the story and they could give their son a peaceful send-off. Another story tells of a child's head found in a cave, along with evidence of cannibalism. After a second investigation, the caves either collapsed or gunpowder was used to seal them. Church Cavern Two heavily armed soldiers descended into the caverns with torches and claimed that they not only found a heap of human bones, they also found the ruins of an ancient church of some unknown denomination. The interior of the church was lit by three large candles and grotesque gargoyles formed part of an altar. Throughout the exploration of the underground, the soldiers said they felt as if they were being watched, and also heard voices speaking in an unknown language. Anyway enough of this rubbish here's a few pics to look at instead...... Thanks for looking

    Hi all, just joined the forum. My name ist "Ghost-Scooter" as I'm discovering locations most of the time with my brave Vespa called "Rosinante". Therefore mainly I am travelling Bavaria - where I live. But, believe it or not, I've been riding a few times through Italy, France and hopefully will go to Great Britain in 2018. Hope to find astonishing pictures and interesting people in here. So far, cheers all Ghost-Scooter

    So this was more of a cheeky little explore than anything planned in advance. A few of us were in the South of France for the Urban Explorer Wedding of the Year, an event that was most definitely epic and involved many many drunken selfies of at least half a dozen drunken explorers (including the Bride and Groom) but hey that's another story and not one for here The day after we left the Bride and Groom to do Honeymoony type things and took ourselves off on a trip to the local cokeworks/coal miney type place. It isn't epic or awesome but it was a pretty damn fine mooch to end the trip with. It is a derpy derp and appears to be a popular place to burn out cars but worth a trip anyway History is limited and in French so here is my best shot at something that vaguely resembles information but however doesn't mean a great deal to me and is probably worth skipping lol!.... The Sainte Marie open pit was a coal mine of the Mining Unit of Tam, H.B.C.M. (Houilleres du Bassin Centre Midi), in the south-western part of France, near Albi. In this area, a large amount of coal has been exploited by Underground mining. This pit was designed in order to exploit the coal remaining around the shaft (Saint Marie shaft) of an old Underground mine situated in the basin of Carmaux.The diameter at the top of the pit was 1200 metres and its final depth was expected to be 300 metres. The first 100 metres were composed of tertiary deposits (clay and sand) which covered the carboniferous formation. The average slope angle of the Tertiary is 37° (without benches) and in the Coal Measures, it was foreseen from 37° to 50° (with benches of 6 metres high) depending on the slope situaüon. At present üme, the depth of the mine is about 160 metres. Nine coal seams have been mined by Underground working between 1900 and 1984. Different methods have been used depending on the thickness, the dip of the layer and the dimension of the panel. In fact, panels were backfilled, caved or undermined long-wall. The basin of Carmaux is a large synclinal split by a dense network of faults which directions are approximately N 140 E. The dips and the dip directions which was left around the shaft, but, close to the slopes, begin the old exploited long walls. These long walls are at different topographic levels due to the particular structure and have been exploited in panels lined by the faults odented approximately N140. The first design of the open pit was done by a Standard geotechnical survey; this one has taken into account the geomechanical, hydrogeological, structural Parameters äs well äs the "decohesion", induced by the revival of subsidence due to old Underground mining. However, some mining slopes can locally present risks of slipping induced by old Underground mining. Anyway here are a few pics Thanks for looking

    So I've been to this location, which was a dancing/disco/club whatever you prefer. But not your usual one, this one exist out of tents! Seen it passing by a few times.. Started searching for it and found it. Now we only had to pick a date and go out on explore! Last weekend was the time! We already left on Friday, and wanted to do this location Friday also. But thanks to our amazing road network in Belgium and their works, we'd end up there after sunset. So we ended up here Sunday , on our way back home! Heard it was actually an easy entrance somewhere upfront the fences where laying down.. They said.. Well looks like they've put them back up! Some of these beta fences you find on every location, decorated with lovely (fresh?) razor-wire! Looked a bit around and seemed like they made work of it closing all the openings. So went around the other side only to find this small piece not having any razor-wire, perfect! Once on terrain it already looked pretty trashed outside, and of course as was inside. Seemed like people needed some club lights for their homes, and alot of other stuff that went missing.. Sadly there was a fire not so long ago, and i believe wind have destroyed on of the main tents ( or could be partial due to fire ). This club was actually already existing for a long time, i believe nearly 20 years. It had to shut down it's door, as less people started to visit the place. It got blown in a second life, but that didn't last long.

    This building used to be a monastery but in the first World War it was turned into an emergency hospital for soldiers who fought in the trenches. Many Belgian soldiers were brought into care here, which explains why the ' don't spit on the floor" sign is both in French and English. We came here on a chilly winters day in December. I loved how the warm sunlight supported the nice colours in the building. It's also the first location in which i stripped down to take a selfie, to find out later on, loads of other explorers had been there on the same day. this could had turned out very awkward 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

    lil place in my backyard... i've been coming to this spot for over a decade. tragically i've only picked up a camera a few years back. it's nice to be able to visit a location many times in the continuation of self improvement and documenting the destruction of a location. heres a few shots from over the past year: pano from last summer. i ran here one day as the sun set. i wanted to catch the lighting. belly of the boiler. behind the controls. another scrapper hard at work i see. test shop. looking down the next year would be sad times as kids from all over began to populate this place. i used to be able to walk around for weeks without running into a soul, and now there could be 30 kids here. in a short period of time shity taggers would desicrate the temple. angering the gods. even the snow doesnt cover that grime. she sure is a beauty tho. i've been to quite a few generating stations and none compare it felt like a train station grande hall. standing in the freezing cold taking a pic of snow falling (or ceiling) so ladylike everyones favorite hallway which was in a movie for 3 seconds. (relax-its photoshopped.....or is it???) until next time . . .

    Following on from our escapades here is another report from The Derpy Rotten Scoundrels Euroderp Tour earlier this year. Having spent the previous day dicking about by Lake Como, swimming in the lake, the lads got their broga on, whilst Disco Kitten put everyone to shame with her epic yoga skills. fortytwo went jungleering and spent the day battling beasts in the wilderness and arrived back after a fight with a snake. Deciding we were on the move the next day we set up camp in a derelict house looking out over the lake. Chilled out with beer and did the only to do when your Euroderping and your derp has an awesome white wall, slammed Indian Jones and the Temple of Doom on the projector and settled in for the night! Our plan was to head for the Holy Grail of NPU, having visited previously I was still excited about the chance of a revisit. So we loaded up the limo and Zsa Zsa and headed off with a plan to hit the Animal Testing Facility on the way. This is another place that is proper trashed but good for a mini derp adventure. I have no idea of its full name, or where it is as I do an excellent job of sleeping as soon as Im in the car. Its a nice little walk in and there is still some interesting stuff in there to see. I've gleaned a little bit of history from some dude who went in 2016. The place belonged to a Swiss Company who were apparently big in the animal testing industry, they moved to this site and rented the building, however when the rental contract ran out they didn't renew the contract and it fell into disrepair. The land it is built on is partly poisoned, due to there being a chemical site their previously and isn't likely to be cleaned up anytime soon. A couple of years after the facility closed it was hit by a fire, causing acrid fumes to permeate the local area. Firefighters arrived and found evidence the fire had been started deliberately but were able to stop the fire fairly quickly. Although they contained the fire, the whole site had to be checked due to rumours of the facility being occupied by refugees and concerns over the local kids playing in the buildings. The facility still has the animal operating/autopsy table in place and there is lots of medical equipment lying around, lamps, autoclaves and a gloved box unit. Anyway here's a few pics (all from my phone as I lost the ones I took on my camera ) Thanks for looking

    This complex was built in the late 70's as the faculty of science and biology of a renowned university. It is located in a quiet, residential area surrounded by a large park. Due to the architecture, the buildings are a bit futuristic and out of place here . It gets even more interesting when you find the greenhouses where a group of 'highly motivated' researchers may have spent a lot of hours amidst their plants in the company of pizza and distilled water. The buildings were abandoned after being in use for only 30 years. Not because of structural problems, the university had simply become too small, as the courses gained popularity. So the students moved to a larger and newer building closer to the other faculties. 1. 2. 3. 4. how panda's are made ... 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

    HOOK END MANOR History: Hook End Manor was once owned by Pink Floyd's David Gilmour. The manor itself has a huge 25 acres of land alongside the recording studio. It was also previously owned by record producer Trevor Horn but was sold back in 2007. The last know proprietor was Mark White, however the manor has now fallen into disrepair! Complete with 11 bedrooms, countless bathrooms, games room and tennis court, in its day the manor would have been great! The Explore: The explore itself went really well, after an hour or so drive finding our way down small country lanes we came across the manor. From an outside perspective there was no way of telling if the place was abandoned. Despite the manor being left empty the attached property is still in use. Not sure if this was still used as the recording studio or converted to offices but we avoided going into that area. The manor is a maze of rooms and much of the original furnishings still remain untouched. We spent a good 2hrs wandering around uninterrupted! <PIC HEAVY> Anyway on with the photos........ Thanks for looking

    Not too bad, I had a couple of pointers from an admin here which were most appreciated though I didn't get to all he suggested. I did a factory and hotel on the way up, stumbled on a torpedo range (already posted here) as I looked for a house which I couldn't find. Located a couple of duds and places that were no longer worth taking photos of, but then found a WWII Hospital in the glorious Scottish sun (Pissing rain) so only half explored that. I plan to go back next year and try again. Beautiful place to drive around on the whole so I did enjoy it regardless! I ended up exploring west to east coast, iterally, and covered ~800 miles up there in 4 days lol.

    So I was asked numerous times on Facebook and Twitter about my photos and how I edit them, so I decided to make a video about it and show the entire process. My process of editing my photos is usually: 1. Lightroom 2. HDR Efex Pro 3. Sharpening 4. Color Efex Pro And this is the video showing the entire process, hope I can help somebody with it.

    Ziegel-Peter is a small abandoned brickyard quite close to Munich. Although it's quite well known around here and although it's not really a new place it is happily nearly untroubled by vandalism. I really love this place because it's fully stuffed and because I love these handcraft workplaces which become rare nowadays. #1 DSC06518-2 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC06479-3 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC06474-3 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC06471-3 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC06470 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC06478-2 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC06473-2 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC06520-3 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC06475-2 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC06476 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC06517-2 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC06515-2 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC06505-3 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC06480-3 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC06512-3 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #16 DSC06484-3 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #17 DSC06506-3 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #18 DSC06511-3 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #19 DSC06481-3 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #20 2 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #21 DSC06513-3 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #22 DSC06485-3 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #23 DSC06507-3 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #24 DSC06504-2 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #25 DSC06493-3 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #26 DSC06491-3 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #27 DSC06489-3 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #28 DSC06486-3 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr

    Had a look at this a couple of times. First with @slayaaaa and then with @DubbedNavigator. It’s barely worth reporting, but I was practicing with phone photos in dark places and I really like the results. These are all taken on a phone camera - Huawei P10. ISO 50, f2.2 and exposure ranging from 1/15 second to 15 second exposure. History According to Kelly’s directory at the record office this this is listed as Frederick Donisthorpe, dyer and trimmer (Pingle Works) from 1870 until 1963, (It became Donsithorpe Hamilton and Co somewhere in the middle). In 1966 it was listed as JW Loweth and sons, Worsted spinner. By 1972 it seems it was L E Sansom Ltd, Cash and Carry, selling food and assorted goods. Their bank foreclosed on LE Sansom in 2012 due to a massive drop in profits, with the company finally dissolving in 2014. This one of the scales - the only light was coming down the stairs, we could barely see the scales. This is a 15 second exposure with no light painting.

    This extravagant castle was originally built in 1605 to a more simple design. During the 19th century it underwent an Arabian style makeover which took 40 years to reach completion. No attention was spared to detail, with each and every one of the 365 rooms given its own identity. During the second world war it was looted by the Germans. After that it became a luxury hotel until it closed it's doors in 1990. Since then various plans have fallen through and a very recent sale attempt was upheld by Italian courts so its future remains unknown. I visited here with @Miss.Anthrope, a place we'd both had firmly at the top of our wish lists for some time. We could've spent hours in here but decided to air on the side of caution and keep our visit relatively short as we'd been asked to leave the area by security the day before. I guess it was pretty obvious what we were up to with camera bags and tripods peeking over the fence and we'd been spotted on cctv. On our return we made sure not to make the same mistake as they are definitely keeping an eye on the place. Derelict buildings don't come much more stunning than this. Ciao bella

    The building with the nice ceiling was the main power station Italian entrepreneurs knew how to create a nice working athmosphere.

    The abandoned mining hospital, located in Hungary, dates back to the nineteenth century. A coal mining company in 1898 began construction of a small mining hospital, which began operations with the approval of the Minister of the Interior on December 17, 1900. The hospital. According to descriptions, it has been adapted for 50 beds. There was a surgical, internal and infectious department. The building was full of lighting, sewage and bathrooms. The facility was one of the most modern hospitals at the time. The care was extended to include the epidemic (1909) and the pharmacy. In 1911 the number of residents increased to such an extent that the hospital was no longer able to meet this number. In 1911, a new hospital was started, which started operating in 1912. The necessary buildings were built in the courtyard of the hospital (morgue, a section of the hospital, a chapel, a house for doctors and nuns, a horse farm). The three-storey hospital had 129 beds for patients who were placed in 23 units. The mining company was responsible for maintaining the hospital, covering all personnel and all costs. Despite many years of change, the mining hospital developed with the development of mining. The hospital was relocated in 1998 to a new hospital complex. Hungarians are tightly attached to the old building and have been trying to save one of the oldest buildings in the city for several years. It was sold for approximately HUF 276 million ($ 1 million). I am planning a rehabilitation center, an oncological center and a nursing home. I invite to visit my site on facebook.

    Been super busy lately! I finally found this forum again though, its exact name disappeared in the abyss of my mind. I started a urban exploring and such in Columbus Ohio. The places I've visited so far are mostly underground drainage tunnels. I have not really began my search for abandoned buildings yet though. I have a youtube channel where I post all the videos about the places I visit. I'm not big into photography currently but I'm making plans to expand into that.
