  1. Much left here now does anyone know?
  2. Very cool, I've still not been to a decent asylum over there yet. Hopefully next year
  3. Very nice mate! Love these places
  4. Fuck that's pretty tasty. I prefer these old derpy theatres photographed in the dark anyway, makes it a bit more atmospheric. Good job on the lighting
  5. Done a good job on that mate. I was hanging from the night before when I went here as well, my pics show it unfortunately....
  6. Liking that! Cannons for the win
  7. It is absolutely huge, I spent half a day there and barely saw anything from your report. The murals were the highlight for me, shame it's on it's way out
  8. Nicely captured mate, some pretty fascinating history there
  9. Wow, what a stunning report! Thanks for sharing with us. Enjoying all of your content actually as we don't see much from over there
  10. Love the windows in here, reminds me of star trek
  11. Nice one D, great photos as always mate
  12. That's sweet, quite a few bits I missed here
  13. Damn what a beast, I really want this one!
  14. Loving this, looks a great explore and not seen it pop up before
  15. Woah what a crazy place! Even more crazy that it was abandoned
  16. Some epic shots there mate, much different to what I came away with
  17. I enjoyed it in here more than I expected. Great shots
  18. You did well to get such nice shots in here, not much to see compared to the others we saw
  19. Ouvrage Hobling is a lesser work (petit ouvrage) of the Maginot Line. Located in the Fortified Sector of Boulay, the ouvrage consists of two infantry blocks and two observation blocks, and is located between gros ouvrage Michelsberg and petit ouvrage Bousse, facing Germany. Hobling was approved for construction by CORF (Commission d'Organisation des Régions Fortifiées), the Maginot Line's design and construction agency, in 1931 and became operational by 1935, at a cost of 14 million francs. Hobling played no significant role in either the Battle of France in 1940 or the Lorraine Campaign of 1944. After the Second World War it became part of the Mòle de Boulay, a strongpoint in the northeastern defenses against Soviet attack. It remained under Army control until 1971, after which it was declassified and sold in 1975. It has been stripped of metals and left abandoned. I've been to a fair few of these now. It's often a wild goose chase looking for the entrance in the middle of the forest but that's part of the fun. I think this was the only success we had out of 5 attempts that day so it was nice to get something done. There's hardly any pictures online so we weren't sure what to expect. It turned out to be in fairly good condition, no graffiti, the kitchen still intact, and a few other bits worth seeing. As with all of these bunkers it's an important piece of WWII history which is why I find them so fascinating no matter how little or how much is left. Visited with @Andy, afterwards I took him for a romantic meal Not a good time to lose your footing.... [ One of the gun turrets Thanks for looking
  20. The first stop on a recent trip to France and Luxembourg with @Andy. A former limestone mine in France, later used during WW2 for the production of oxygen. Quite a small mine and mostly flooded but there were some nice photos to be had. Thanks for looking
