  1. Oh my giddy aunt There's so much I love about what I see here!!!! The natural decay! The ceiling! The rippling floor! I think I need to lie down...
  2. As above - a warm welcome to OS! Once you got a lead it's worth persevering, as you've found here. I guess an estate agent might say would benefit from some modernisation....
  3. USA The Ghost of St Nicholas

    Thanks for adding this report @yonaguni It looks like a really interesting place. Can you check on the links of some of your images as they aren't showing up properly?

  5. Hi guys! Newbie from London!

    Welcome along! Not sure about official jungles but I've plenty of experience of brambles and nettles. Always carry a tripod!
  6. Not personally, but there's plenty of scope for it out there. For example - http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/inside-hulme-hippodrome-how-squatters-13562709
  7. Belgium Shutter Island August '17

    Looks amazing! Would love to see more pics.
  8. I was wondering why you don't hear much talk of chavs anymore. No doubt having him as a companion albeit briefly must have added to the whole experience.
  9. UK North Staffordshire infirmary sept 2017

    Looks like a nice slice of epicness there and a good day out I'd imagine!
  10. UK Hook End Manor September 2017

  17. This was a chance find in late 2015 with a second visit in early 2016. Although someone - presumably a family member - had tried to do some 'sorting' they hadn't got very far. At the time it had been un-lived in for quite some years I'd say. There wasn't much to reveal specific detail about who had lived there and everything seemed to point to a perfectly middle-class respectability. Magazines about gardening, commemorative crockery etc. A cupboard for bottles of booze, almost all unopened, so a picture of restraint and moderation. However I then saw a full carousel of slide photographs. I picked one out expecting it to probably be a holiday snap from a seaside resort. It wasn't pictures of Bournemouth, although they could have been taken in the 70's. The whole lot was of very well-endowed gentlemen who must have been somewhere really hot because they had to take all their clothes off In the interest of taste and decency these have not made the final collection but I hope you still enjoy the report. Beware the giant butterfly Update - work has now started on major renovations to the house and gardens
  18. New Zealand St. James Church and Hall, Auckland - June 2017

    Some nice pics there and as usual an entertaining write up, reminding me of long smelly road trips with very little sleep!
  19. New Zealand Outlaw Biker Den, Papanui Junction - June 2017

    Excellent report of something totally different. Although its a shithole its a fascinating one, great to see a place that would normally be well out of bounds for everyday folk. RIP Snake
  20. Sounds a challenging explore that. Agree with @coolboyslim its sad to think that's someone's lifetime in untidy heaps there.
  21. UK Oakwood Farm, Norfolk - June 2016

    Great little find that and the written report made me lol especially the "history"
  22. Hello folks! This site is quite well known I would say - workers left the site for the last time in 2007. It was opened in 1962 as Ferodo brake components and all was dandy for almost 40 years until it was taken over by Friction Dynamics then things went tits up. It was the scene of one of the longest running industrial disputes ever with the T&GW union that lasted 2 and a half years. In the 10 years since it closed its been ravaged by storms, fire, general vandalism and corrosion due to the coastal location. So its an understatement to say its in pretty poor shape! Still, that doesn't mean I didn't find it interesting. I was actually walking to my sisters house to pick up my car and happened to be walking past so popped in to look around. I expected to see a complete dead loss, the kind of place its not worth taking the camera out of the bag. But I saw plenty to decide I'd come back with my camera gear. I decided to do something totally radical that I hadn't done before - do the entire set in Black & White. Here goes..... There are 3 separate buildings, this one housed the heavy industry, generating the power. The second building is the admin block Not so much left in there so onwards to the main building which is VAST! This is probably what most people will see when first entering, although there must be at least 20 other access points! There is a building inside the building I'd be interested to know what these big hanging things are/were in the next 2 pics And this is what held them in place up in the roof Sometimes when there's no epic stuff its the little things, the traces of what's left that I find fascinating. At some point this gloopy stuff had leaked and then set rock solid No security here but I was worried about projectiles of shit from above - a seagull with attitude dropped one a couple of feet away as I took this external
