  1. Hi

    Thanks Tracey Thanks Andy
  2. Hi

    Hi all Just another explorer and adventure seeker as fro the start of 2017 i started to film and make short movies from my adventures and explores, I've been urban exploring ever since i can remember but i'm new to the forums.. I look forward to sharing experiences and connecting with like minded people I recently had a urbex weekend adventure and did a vlog style video and thought this may be suitable to share here as it gives you a little insight to me and what i get up to. Also the places i visited have been my first posts to the forum. I will also link those below as they each have their own video and report. Here are my first of hopefully many posts to come. http://www.oblivionstate.com/forum/topic/11923-formula-1-headquarters-aug-17/ http://www.oblivionstate.com/forum/topic/11925-hobbits-house-aug-17/ http://www.oblivionstate.com/forum/topic/11926-abandoned-military-planes-at-long-marston-airfield-aug-17/ YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/rosswallaceadventures Help & Support me by SUBSCRIBING and giving me feedback on my content.

  3. This Avro Shackleton is one of three aircrafts situated at Long Marston. After the small aviation museum had sadly closed its doors, the Shackleton MR3, serial number WR985, was among a group of larger airframes that were not relocated, and is still sat at the old World War 2 airfield today. With plans to tear up the old runways (one of which had been latterly used as a dragstrip) and build thousands of new homes on the site, the future prospects of the decommissioned Shackleton seem bleak. WR985 first flew in 1958 and was later relegated to ground training duties under the maintenance serial 8103M. It was disposed of in 1988 and moved to Long Marston airfield. Also there's the Percival Sea Prince T.1 ex WM735 (ex G-RACA) ex Staverton, on display at the airfield entrance. And finally a Gloster Meteor T.7 WL332 ex Cradiff. More Pictures from the explore... Come along on the explore and check out the video i made. If you enjoyed Videos like this be sure to SUBSCRIBE to my channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/rosswallaceadventures
  4. UK Hobbits House - Aug 17

    Yea wasn't expecting what we found.
  5. UK Hobbits House - Aug 17

    Although this place may look old, it actually isn't it was started by a farmer in the 80's. Known as the 'Hobbit House'. The farmer took 11 years to build this incredible two-storey building, which features several turrets, dovecotes and stained glass windows built by a local artist. This was all built by the farmer with this own hands and form stones he found on his land. The farmer built this simply to store hay and other supplies, but rather than stopping at four walls, the building begun to grow, until it eventually became the unusual build it is today. The stained glass windows represent the four seasons, winter, spring, summer, autumn and the four elements, earth, air, fire and water. To give a sense of scale, the doors are normal sized doors. This is not a miniture house, it is full size. The house was not built for a movie set and has not been in any movie. It was built purely as a hobby and a labour of love. In a newspaper interview the farmer said "I just got a bit carried away!" The farmer sold the land in 2000 due to the local quarry disrupting his peace and is now farming in Scotland. The Explore itself was very edgy, after being told the new owner of the land was an angry farmer that didn't want visitors we took our chances. After getting stuck in the building for 30 mins waiting for the farmer to finish cutting the grass on the field the house sits on, we eventually managed a full explore of this place. Pictures form the explore Here's the Video I made from the explore. If you like videos like this make sure you SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/rosswallaceadventures
  6. I've code named this place as Meadows Cottage. This place is a hidden time capsule, with diaries and newspapers from as early as the 1940's. The most recent items had dates around the 1980's so it's hard to say how long this place has even been abandoned for. I actually explored this place back in May but have not yet shared it to the forum so here it is. So this place i understand was owned by a old lady named Mrs Banning, unfortunately when she past away this was past to her nephew that lived in Isle of Man. He had no care or need for the building or his aunties items inside.. it's since become left to decay and nature reclaimed the building and its surrounding area. With the recent sale of the building the new owners plan to demolish and rebuild on the land.. but this is said to currently be on hold due to bats, now taking residency in the cottage. It was obvious the surrounding garden that was once overgrown around the cottage was recently cut back, making for a easy access. I was very surprised to find what we did inside just left and forgotten. Here's some pictures form the explore followed by the Video of the explore. Here's the Video i made from the explore:
  7. UK Formula 1 Headquarters - Aug 17

    So this F1 Team entered the sport in 2010. In its five years the team failed to score a single point with its best result being 11th at the 2012 Brazilian Grand Prix. Despite attempts to keep the team going into the 2015 season, the assets were seized and sold at auction while the 230 staff were made redundant. This site includes 150,000 sq ft of buildings, offices and a racing car testing facility. Unfortunately no F1 cars but nevertheless still made for a great explore. That's until the police arrived after we had triggered the alarm.
