  1. too right, theres too many people who abuse their authority and think that their job entitles them to some kind of control over people. not to mention the right to condescend! I assured him not to worry about our safety as we were experienced explores, haha i guess you have to patronise back sometimes! This was after he warned us about the apparent 'crack heads and junkies' who regularly visit the site...obviously only the ones who can afford train fair and are prepared for a 2 mile walk ofc! yeah spot on about the stick, he claimed it was for back problems after i asked him to please stop profusely swinging it. a strange thing to use to aid walking as it didnt even reach his hip. was a good laugh though and his office is located riiiiiight at the very back of the park (awesome tactic) so very easy not to be seen at all think we just pushed it a bit the last time, he was very upset that we'd removed a board from a door and not put it back.
  2. yeah man only 2 rides left, the place is a tip! haha exactly, got the feeling he was taking his crappy job out on poor innocent explorers. but without us he would have no job eh!
  3. The park opened in 1983 and was operating seasonally until late 2012. The park was based on the story of 'Camelot, King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table'. The local area was once covered by the largest lake in England Martin Mere, which was first drained in 1692 by Thomas Fleetwood of Bank Hall in Bretherton. The closure of the park was announced by Knights Leisure, in November 2012, the managing director blaming poor summer weather and events such as London 2012 and the Queen's Jubilee for declining visitor numbers. The site's future remains uncertain as the new owner is planning to redevelop the site. Current indications are that this will be a housing development. These pics are from 2 visits to Camelot, probably the last unfortunately as the rude security guard yielding a large stick gave us a good telling off the second time. and even sneakily took photographs of us to 'send to the police!' He shouted and swore for a while about how dangerous the site was and the definition of private land, reminded us that we were massive dickheads, and asked us to leave. Really fun explore, great laugh and beautiful little treasures on a fairy tale wasteland indeed Camelot is, ''The land of great knights, and amazing days.'' ham anyone?

  8. This was a recent accidental stumble upon, Rowlandsway House in Wythenshawe, Manchester. The structure used to accommodate Shell employees, seemed like a pretty standard office block. Access was fairly easy with pretty slack security, but be aware of motion censored alarm/lights in main reception! Planning to go back before further demolishment as want to get more images when i have some proper equipment on me. Horrible building from the outside but internally its quite an interesting explore with some beautiful light in the late afternoon. (google image)
  9. hey

    hey guys! really looking forwards to getting involved with this site, coming here after experiencing a fair amount of hostility and egocentricity from another (which shall not be named) urban exploration forum. a fun and friendly vibe is much more my scene! everyones posts look awesome, currently waiting on some photo's back of a recent trip to Rowlandsway House in Wythenshawe, Manchester - old Shell offices in demolition. peace
