  1. Military stuff or bunkers are high up the top of my explore list haha, anything else is generally because there's no military stuff I know if in the area haha Thanks mate Chances are I will be back at the location soon, more interior shots to come!
  2. Visiting a few times previously for non urbex related reasons, and touching on a few abandoned vehicles previously, little did I know the whole site is actually an old military themed action park. Waiting for the next opportunity to pop up and head over again, I took my chance, grabbed the camera and walked about. Even meeting someone on site who knew all about the place when it was open, quite handy to have a tour guide with history on the place! Turns out the whole place used to be an off road action park with climbing and paint balling sections. However considering majority of the buildings were porta cabins and majority of the race tracks were near enough non existent, my main interest was the abandoned vehicles and planes. There’s plenty of history about but to save reading numerous news articles…
  3. Knowing this place from years ago in the days it was active, and heading back from a days exploring in Norfolk, this was last on the list for myself and RelictaSpiritus. I had memories many moons ago meeting a girl who worked at Bambers Green, but unfortunately after speaking for many weeks I found her somewhat rude upon arrival. I couldn’t resist including that in the report… But anyway, the site was slowly but surely being reclaimed by nature but still had plenty to see so cracking on myself and Relicta made our way through the site. The highlight for myself was one of the two houses, simply a stunning property which leaves me surprised that such a place has been left to waste away. Even the houses past was clearly shown with equestrian type decoration in various places. Looking for the history on the location, the houses are actually up for sale which again leaves me somewhat perplexed as to how or why they haven’t yet sold. Unfortunately (my favourite report word), much of the remains worth seeing that I have seen on other reports appears to have now long gone. Onto the history and pictures now, along with a huge thanks to RelictaSpiritus for the day out! Fantastic day, even smashing my previous exploring record with 8 locations in one day.
  4. UK RNAS Pulham - July 2017

    On the days list with the awesome RelictaSpiritus on a day trip to Norfolk is RNAS Pulham. Not much to report on this location as we actually didn’t find what we was looking for, however we did find some pretty cool old trucks, trailers and an old barn full of junk. Somewhat unexpected find, especially to find everything unlocked and open! With one giving myself the classic urbex fright of a pigeon flying towards me and the other more gruesome find of a dead animal of some sort inside the front of the truck… How does that even happen? But anyway, despite not even knowing if the pictures below are even related to the site, here’s the history once again shamelessly stolen from Wikipedia.
  5. UK St Mary's Church - July 2017

    Passing this place only a few months back and spotting the boarding on the windows, the perfect opportunity arose while on route back from Norfolk with RelictaSpiritus. After various other failed locations of the day, we were pleasantly surprised to find access to the church although a bit of a squeeze and a wedgie mid process. With the slight struggle we found ourselves inside pidgeon shit central, but despite that and the unfortunate damage done presumably by the locals. The church was still absolutely stunning. I would like to point out at this point, noting the news reports on the place and the lack of reports for quite some time. We are explorers, we came, took pictures and left again. It’s unfortunate we’re all tarred with the same brush.
  6. After alerting fellow explorer RelictaSpiritus to this place being nearby and a last minute scramble to organised a weekend trip, we were making our way over to Norfolk to visit HMP Blunderston Upon arrival we quickly saw this wasn’t going to be anything easy, after all it is designed to keep people in and everyone else out. Making our way around the front of the site and establishing the main entrances were locked tight or covered with a pile of rubble, we made our way round the perimeter fence with high hopes discovering nothing but the abandoned prison farm and somewhat high fences, unsurprisingly. Unfortunately defeated by the prison itself this time around, we did however bump into an ex prison warden who appeared just as we had lost hope. Again, unfortunately other than telling us he worked there for 25 years he would only say simply that there were many things we wouldn’t like to hear about that he had seen over those 25 years.
  7. UK Military Vehicles - June 2017

    Thanks all, going to revisit soon as I heard there's plenty more to see there haha!
  8. UK Military Vehicles - June 2017

    An accidental find while picking up car parts, the tail end of a plane caught my attention which was a good enough excuse for a mooch for me. Now it is debatable of abandoned or not as these are actually sitting at the entrance to an action park in Essex and the remains of the plane are sitting in what can only be described as a scrappie. However on closer inspection and checking over the action parks website, they are without a doubt abandoned or at least left by the action park owners to rust away. Unfortunately the truck looks as though it was used as a “show piece” at some stage of its life with a fake missile poking out the side, more disappointingly the whole interior had been removed. The tracked vehicles actually looked in better condition and what I could see through the dirty windows, the entire interiors were still intact. Downside is they were all locked. History on them? Well, I guess what you see below is what you get! If anyone can name the vehicles, even better!
  9. UK The Watershed, May 2017

    Taking an unlikely turn from my usual self and deciding to walk to work for a change, I stumbled across this… thing, that I have no idea what it is. (Been explained to me since originally exploring now :P) Ok so not strictly true, I have known about it for years but literally stumbled across access on my walk home. I actually have no idea what it is or what it was for and am unable to find any details about it online, however given its close proximity to a water pumping station I suspect it is something to do with that. Hence the somewhat fitting name “The Watershed”. History wise, as above, I have no details so until I figure out what on earth it actually is I will let the pictures speak the words.
  10. UK Wingfield Railway Station - April 2017

    Nope, no luck... though didn't try the track facing side. Train shot explains why haha...
  11. Heading north from my usual area of abode to pick up myself a new 4 wheeled toy (none from this report of course) and seeing this place was nearby, what better opportunity for a mooch. Being a bit of a car nut myself, I have been on a bit of a mission to see some abandoned vehicles so this was a perfect quick little explore to satisfy that mission. For now anyway. Certainly some interesting vehicles on the site, one of which in my opinion is well worthy of a restoration! Unfortunately I didn’t manage to get inside the station building itself and didn’t fancy crossing the live tracks to see the platform side of the building.
  12. With a slightly later Easter weekend start to the day than usual, making my way over to a certain church in Essex to meet with onethirtytwo_ to kick off the days splore. Now before I continue with this, despite our best attempts and even flagging down a local, we did not manage to venture inside the church itself, so in effect was a failed explore. However in true UD fashion a report is a report so I will share the few external shots I did get. There’s very little history on this place so won’t be posting any history with this report unfortunately.
  13. UK Co-op Supermarket, April 2017

    I thought the same thing when we found the wheelchair.
  14. Went to do the shopping but the shop was abandoned! We found a cookie though, but it was out of date. Far from the average explore this one. Maybe not at the top of everyones list to explore, but let’s face it… How often is it your local co-op or any supermarket in that fact is closed and abandoned? Best of all with power left on! Explored with onethirtytwo_ for the second location of the day, we feared it may be a failed explore as the outside of the building looked like a new build. However on closer inspection the building was sealed up and locked tight. After a brief hop over the fence and casual stroll around the grounds, we soon found our way in. Making our way through building, we found our way to the shop floor. What a sight it was, excuse the cliche but it really did look like a post-apocalyptic scene with the power still on, alarms beeping away and fridges and freezers still humming. History on the place? Well… it’s a co-op, what more do you need to know?
  15. It’s been a while once again since I have explored, tied up in one of many of lifes distractions… However, I am back and this time armed with a new wide angle lens! Exploring with one of my Instagram followers onethirtytwo_, great to meet a new explorer as well! So, I have had my eye on this place for quite some time and watched it open and close its doors numerous times, but noticing the boarding had finally gone up and hearing the place had closed for the final time, I took the closest opportunity I could. Unfortunately, as with many places I seem to explore, the local kids had already got to it before me and smashed a lot of the place to bits. Still with power turned on and much of the place still intact, we cracked on anyway.
