  1. Germany Sanatorium E.T. (visited 09/2017)

    Some nice natural light in there
  2. Yeah I loved it, thank you
  3. This was a solo venture while on a recent trip to Berlin. It's around 60km outside the city so it's a pain to reach by public transport but big enough to spend a few hours once you get there. The buildings are pretty empty but there are a few cool Soviet murals dotted around and very little graffiti. I'm a bit vague on the history of this one but here's a bit I translated from Wiki. The Fliegerhorst Jüterbog-Damm was an airfield and flying school used by German air forces during WWI (Luftstreitkräfte) & WWII (Luftwaffe). The site was used as an artillery-flying station from 1914 to 1918 for the Luftstreitkräfte. After the end of WWI the installations were demilitarised according to the peace treaty of Versailles, since this prohibited the operation of an air force. The Fliegerhorst was massively expanded from 1934/35, under the direction of the German architect Max Cetto. There were six large hangars in the north of the airport. Behind were other business and accommodation buildings. As early as 1934, the Jüterbog bomber flying school was based here, which was later renamed Kampferliegerschule Jüterbog and Kampfliegerlehrgang Jüterbog. Further aircraft training regiments, aircraft pilot schools as well as a local reconnaissance school were located here until 1945. Foillowing the end of WWII the site was occupied by Soviet forces until 1994 when it was handed back to the German government. 1. Entrance cabin 2. 3. Part of the site is currently being used by a logging company 4. Unsure what this may have been, perhaps part of a gas station 5. A small bunker with a grass roof hidden in the trees 6. 7. A small sub station inside 8. 9. 10. Another strange looking structure 11. Turned out to be the back corner of this massive aircraft hangar, now being used by a farmer 12. 13. Interesting mound in the farmer's field 14. Once a tank emplacement 15. Some scribbles in a nearby outbuilding 16. Soviet instructional posters 17. 18. 19. 20. Back to the main site another small bunker lurking in the bushes 21. Not much of interest inside, just a corridor of small rooms 22. Collapsed hall 23. The main building 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. 30.
  4. Cool first report. Welcome to OS
  5. France Manoir Neglected Elegance July 2017

    Awesome! I want to live there with 17 cats
  6. Nice one mate, you've really done a good job capturing this place, some epic shots there. Love the one looking down from the top especially
  7. No worries, that's fair enough
  8. UK Wingfield Railway Station - April 2017

    It's all about that white van! Wonder what it used to say on the side.....
  9. Looks pretty fucked but good work documenting it
  10. I always liked the look of the decay in this place. I've noticed you don't get many comments on your reports these days @Landie_Man, I guess because you rarely respond, do you even read them?
  11. UK Abandoned Apothecary

    Missed this one, looks amazing in there. I often walk past the odd little abandoned shop and think it's probably not worth the effort but something like this would be awesome to find!
  12. UK RAF Coningsby Bomb Dump - lincolnshire - October 2017

    Looks pretty epic here to be fair, gonna have to head over soon I think. Some good finds there!
  13. Missed this one, nice photos Andy. Maybe the floorboards were removed by metal thieves stealing copper pipes underneath?
  14. UK Abandoned movie studio/film set - Beijing, China

    Seen this pop up before, looks an interesting wander. What's the deal with YouTubers and CAPS LOCK?
  15. That's cool mate, really nicely photographed
  16. Italy Villa Sbertoli, Italy - September 2017

    Cheers it's not bad is it, another gem wasting away unfortunately
  17. Villa Sbertoli was built in the early 1800s by wealthy merchant Agostino Sbertoli. According to some sources he decided to turn the villa into a psychiatric hospital because he had a disabled son, whom he tried to cure all his life. On his death bed he decided to devote all his possessions to a charity for the mentally ill, even their, so that his son could feel at home. It was inaugurated as a psychiatric hospital in 1868. During World War II it was used by the Nazis to hold prisoners but afterwards was sold to the province and used as a psychiatric hospital again. In 1978 "Law Basaglia" (a reform of the Italian psychiatric system) was passed and the hospital was forced to close. By 1990 it was abandoned completely. Really liked it in here, the main hall is stunning and there are a few medical rooms upstairs. Perhaps a bit staged in one or two of them but interesting all the same. The building next door had some nice bits as well. Unfortunately we got off to a bad start by bumping into Jonny the security guard. He seemed like a really nice guy but it was difficult to communicate with him. Luckily @Miss.Anthropewas on hand with her mystical ability to understand everything a foreigner says in a language she doesn't speak. He wanted 20 Euros off each of us to let us inside, and that's why he was being so nice. Now I'm not really into paying for explores so we told him we had no money on us. He didn't like this predicament much so we eventually reached a settlement of 5 Euros for the both of us. A sum we could happily live with! Nice one bruvva
  18. hi everybody

    Welcome to oblivion state, look forward to seeing some reports
  19. I'm actually amazed there is this much left of it, can't believe the saloon is still there! Cheers for posting
  20. Haha wtf, not heard that before! Look forward to seeing your pics, I'd like to go back tbh
  21. I can't find much history about this place except it was built in the 1950s and abandoned in the 90s due to a more modern replacement being built nearby. Sadly the turbine hall has been completely gutted but the control room was absolutely pukka. A nice chilled explore with @Miss.Anthrope 1. 2. This is what used to be inside here..... (archive photo) 3. What it looks like now. Sometimes life isn't fair. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Amazing that this is in such a good state compared to the rest of the building. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. The trip wouldn't have been complete without a quick peek inside the cooling tower. 20. The smallest cooling tower I've seen I think! Grazie mille
  22. Fair play this place looks so good, nice report
  23. UK Hook End Manor September 2017

    Great set from here. The place is all over the media now and apparently been emptied, oh well was good while it lasted!
  24. Other DeScent RIP. Tribute Video

    Nice tribute Doug, I remember reading about this, a tragic reminder of the dangers of draining. I'll share this onto the Facebook group as well. Cheers
