  1. These two old power stations sit on the edge of a live steelworks site. There is some really impressive old industry to see here, including a massive old gas engine hall which still contains one huge engine, which was actually the biggest of its kind in the world. All that's left of the other smaller power station are the boilers and a couple of small control rooms, no turbines But it's still impressive to see some dated industry. Visited with @AndyK! and Kriegaffe9. The first building we entered was the smaller station: After a while walking around on giant suspended pipes and through asbestos we find this compressor room: Gas engine hall: One of two more modern turbines inside the hall: Cheers
  2. Another tasty french chateau today. Really enjoyed this place, and I had wanted to go back here for a while as last year we were only able to access one room It's a bit of an interesting one, as each room seems to be set in a different style from one another, and this provides for an interesting walk around, and varied photo opportunities. The two main things I wanted to see here were the library and the chapel, and they didn't disappoint at all. Some great architecture and some left over items to see here Visited with @AndyK! and Kriegaffe9. Entrance Hall: Nice Rooms: Library: Chapel: Cheeers
  3. First report from the latest trip abroad! This old mansion sits in a small village, the gates are wide open and the locals don't seem to even care about it. The highlight here was definitely the grand entrance hall, surrounded by pillars, red carpet, grand staircase, and a lumiere-esque balcony above it. There were also some pretty nice side rooms too. From what I can gather the last use this building had was as a hotel, judging by the slight modernization of some areas. A nice relaxed explore with @AndyK! and Kriegaffe9. Featuring: My tripod because I'm too lazy to shop it out. Cheers
  4. Another backlog report here. Visited with @AndyK! and @Jamie_P in the pouring rain and as night was approaching, so the photos were a little difficult to process. Quite a nice castle though, completely white on the outside with four massive turrets. Inside there isn't much left aside from some typical french architecture, which was pretty nice to see, but difficult to capture in the fading light. Hope my photos can do some justice, try your best to ignore the noise - Cheers.
  5. I have held back on posting this place for quite a while, but it seems everyone knows about it now and all of the contents of these rooms has since been removed. This one may be quite graphic or disturbing for some, and I understand that. These were found inside a live university building, tucked away on one of the top floors, behind a locked door and somehow forgotten about. There were a few bits in this building that had been unused for quite some time, including another room full of organs, and two autopsy rooms hidden away in the basement. It seems that some of these areas may have been open to the public at one point, judging by various information posters on the walls. This place was really interesting to see, incredibly surreal when close up and in person. Visited with Val and @AndyK!. Organs - The "Little Miracles" - It seems as though these were previously part of some sort of exhibition, at a sort of museum the medical school had in house at some point, perhaps? Pretty dark stuff. One of the autopsy rooms - Complete with tools and a porcelain table. Hope posting this here is OK. Thanks for looking.
  6. Italy Black Turbines - April 2015

    This small hydroelectric power station originally powered the neighboring Crespi textiles factory that closed some time ago. Before we came here we were aware that the building was possibly alarmed, but determined to see the industrial deliciousness inside, we carried on. On our approach we were hiding in the woods, dodging dog walkers and cyclists, but it was SO worth it.. Even if I did only manage about 3 photos after setting of the alarm Visited with @PROJ3CTM4YH3M, Kriegaffe9 and @AndyK! Not a lot of information here I know.. But hopefully these will make up for it -
  7. Visited this one a year ago on the way to Scotland with @AndyK! The mortuary sits just on the edge of the Maiden Law hospital site, where there a few other derpy looking buildings and a live nursing home at the back of the site. Not really a lot to say about this one. It's a pretty nice morgue with a great amount of derp, and a tasty porcelain slab. Enjoy! Pics - Cheers

  9. France Ch√Ęteau Bambi-May 16'

    These pics are awesome Jamie! Great report and trip good work
  10. France Chapelle des Pelotes - May '16

    Chapelle des Pelotes Visited this one with @AndyK! and @Jamie_P. First location on our long and tiring France trip which involved around 38 hours of driving and forcing our eyes open, along with 7 hours of sleeping, Win! This chapel was part of an old seminary, which also looked great,but we didn't visit that part unfortunately. This chapel was well worth the trip however, kept us occupied for a good couple of hours before heading to the next. Upon arriving we parked up in the sort of small village where you immediately draw attention to yourself, because you're driving around in the only English vehicle for miles We walked up to our decided entry point into the grounds which was not too difficult, although it required some mission impossible style rolling to avoid the eagle eyes of the locals A car drove past whilst one of us were getting into the grounds, stopped and began to reverse, but within the short time between stopping and reversing, we were straight out of sight, danger roll win! Anyway, enough rambling.. Cheers
  11. France Chateau Secession May 16

    Some of the best pics i've seen from here. Lovely set buddy!
  12. On the second day of our three day Germany trip last year, we decided we'd hit this castle after seeing a few friends photos online. We were hoping to turn up and bump into someone and ask to take some photos, but it had turned out there was already a tour organised for some other photographers, so we jumped at the opportunity. Visited with AndyK, Val and RobinDK.
