  1. UK Sheffield tram sheds, March 2017

    short vid of a back up splore few months back, nice artwork.
  2. A quick one this but I'm quite happy with how it came out. St. Pauls church was completed in 1849 and shut in 1999. It was (at least in 2008) on the market for the somewhat bargin price of £170,000. Now you dont get the windows with that (they have been auctioned off) you do however get multiple pigeon corpses and the splended aroma they have left behind... A cracking little church and it's sad to see it in the state it's in. Like if you like subscribe if you wish comments welcome

    Very arty, great stuff
  5. Havent seen to many videos on this place, I uploaded a vid of an explore ages ago, but every time I go past Newlands I have a little look and so have amassed more pics and footage of it. Some of this vid was shot in August 2016, some in November and some this weekend just gone. For some reason I love this place. The history is amazing, these buildings date back to 1213 and were the northern base of the Knights Templars and then 43 years later the Knights Hospitallers . Anyone intrested in a more in depth history should definitely check out http://www.stanleyhistoryonline.com/N... As ever comments welcome.
  6. UK Dyson Ceramics, Sheffield, January 2017

    Cheers mate
  7. Nice shots, really like the stained glass window.
  8. I had a few days off last month so decided to go to Dyson. As you can see it was quite foggy which made the whole thing feel pretty creepy, solo explore as well. lotta fun. I will be doing a revisit at some point and hopefully with a drone The building, in Sheffield, closed its doors in 2006 and since then the gutted remains have been left to rust. The Dyson Group, founded by John Dyson, opened their first factory in Sheffield in 1834 at the tail end of the Industrial Revolution, before later moving to this site. Using new software to edit videos so should be a big improvement in quality!
  9. UK Old park farm , Wakefield November 2016

    thanks for feedback mate
  10. footage and pics are taken from two quick visits. One in August and one in November 2016. Some stolen history......... In 2008 the farm was closed after concerns were raised about the welfare of the birds that were kept there. These included Harris hawks, red-tailed hawks, two emaciated European eagle owls and Lanner falcons. In 2005, nine eagle owls kept at the council-owned site were used in film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Since the farm was abandoned it has become a dangerous eyesore, and a meeting place for local kids and with evidence of drug taking on the site. Piles of rubbish litter the farm buildings, where slates have been stolen from the roof and fires have been started. In 2009 RATS president Paul Dainton called upon Wakefield Council to make the site safer after the buildings became too unsafe to be left as they were. In July 2010 the farm was sold at auction by Wakefield Council for £162,000, selling for almost double the guide price. It is unsure of what the new owners plan to do with site at present. info taken from www.stanleyhistoryonline.com Feedback welcome, still new to this.
  11. great pics. made it out here today to have a look, main building all boarded up now though. Nice green oven thing in one of the buildings on the left hand side.

    Thanks, made it out to another place near this the other day will edit a vid of it when I get chance.
  15. UK Newland Hall, Normanton June 2016

    Had a look at Newlands hall for the first time Newland Estate lies in the valley of the River Calder between Alfofts and Stanley Ferry, and is one of the very few estates in the area that can be traced back through documents which have survived and span 900 years. Occupation of the site dates back at least to the Bronze Age, and is believed to have been the site of a Roman villa or camp. Large amounts of Roman pottery and coins were extracted from the site on the 1997 archaeological dig. Evidence of an iron ore mine has also been found on the estate which is could be connected to the henge at Birkwood Common, both sites connect via a footpath which is heavy in metal deposits suggesting that there could have been a Roman foundry at the henge with ore being taken from Newland to the henge site due to the vast amounts of easily accessible coal that breaks to the surface along the ridge down towards the River. There is no direct evidence proving authenticity of a foundry, or that the henge was a worked site, however, individuals (including Paul Dainton) have given this theory calculated thought, and with information available believe this to be a strong possibility. The estate in its present form was established in 1213 by King John of England and belonged to a community of Knights Templar up to the year 1256 when it was transferred to a similar organisation called the Knights Hospitallers. A preceptory was historically the headquarters of the Knights Hospitaller and Templar which was governed by a preceptor, who was answerable to the Grand Master of the order. http://www.stanleyhistoryonline.com/Newland-Estate.html
