  1. I’m sure you have all seen pictures popping up on various forums, FB and flickr, and so had I! When I saw it it was a place I had to visit. Luckily I got a message from my Dutch friends about a great new location they’d got details of and, low and behold, it was the same thing. The next thing I did was book the chunnel up pronto and went over that weekend. After a painful drive through some French farm roads to the north of Paris we got there and got in at first light. It was pretty dark inside even up on the top floors, but as it got lighter we saw what we had all wanted! I know very little about the site, other than what I’ve heard on the grapevine, that the owner is in Costa Rica (??) Judging by whats left in the place music and amateur radio seemed to play a big part in the owners interests. Oh, and I heard that some Belgian explorers had been busted not too far away from here by the gendarmerie who followed their car and then pulled their guns on them! Anyway on with the pics: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 Thanks for looking
  2. Not much to say about this one really... Exceptionally beautiful manor house, hidden in the woods somewhere in France... ...MANOIR MUSIQUE... ... ... As always... Thanks for lookin' in
  3. France October 2015 : Fachos

    3rd location of the first day in France with Stussy and a non member Lovely place, good fun and I didnt crash the hire car on this day of the trip cheers The Baron
  4. Another trip to Europe with some Dutch friends, this was the final location on a day in north east France and we were running short of time to get back and for me to get the train from Calais. So with a four and a half drive ahead of us we had about 45mins to get round this place. We found our way in pretty easily but there was a part of the site we were looking for which we just couldn’t find and we think it might be closer to the public part of the site. Anyway we did what we could before leaving, so just a short report and I’m guessing it will need a revisit. I don’t know much about the site, but its part of a large mine complex and this part was in the coal processing building. This building was massive and it was only one of the buildings on the site, although none of us knew where the public part of the site started so we had to be careful - I think the time limit helped us as well! Thanks for looking
  5. We arrive and we stop at the edge of a small road. To our right , a full mosquito creek. To the left a huge park with the forest. We descided with Offone Decay (one off my exploration friend) going into the forest. And here we come across a huge castle , no window is broken, no sign of forced entry. Only the few walkers can see us enter the castle . We look through a window before entering. And here we see that all the furniture is still there, as it nobody ever left this place... Its feels like a perfect plan. Here I share a few pictures of this find (1 full day for the exploration of this castle), I hope you enjoy it Today this castle is in a big mess, it's missing many small objects and everything is the ground. ... So sad:mad:

  8. France PS II - September 2015

    This location was on my to-do-list for a while so we gave it a go. My exploring partner had already been there before so it was smooth and easy to enter because he knew the directions. Just when we were finished, we started hearing voices from outside. we thought it was security and that they would disappear soon enough. But the voices kept multiplying, and so did the noise. Before we knew, there were footsteps and loud bangs on the roof right above us. Apparently, they are starting to demolish the building, so removing drainpipes and rooftiles is a splendid job to do after 6.30 pm. For a moment I even feared that a wrecking ball (without Miley) would swing in! So we decided it would be safer to wait inside the building untill the darkness came, instead of spending 2.5 hours in a police station. It became just a wee bit more exciting when a roof worker clearly showed his explorer-skills by entering the building through a hole in the roof and started sneaking around a bit. he missed us by 3 metres... but apart from all this, it is still by far one of the most beautiful locations I've been able to explore so far. 1 PSII / Gates of Walhalla by Dafne Op 't eijnde, on Flickr 2 3 4 PSII / Gates of Walhalla by Dafne Op 't eijnde, on Flickr 5 6 7
  9. Abandoned Pottery Factory - Sept 2015

    During our latest trip to France we visited an old factory where pottery etc were made. Although the place is abandoned for a while and most of the factory is empty, one building is (in urbex terms) well preserved. The combination of wood, sunlight, beautiful rooms and left pottery made this one of my favorite locations.

  12. France E.T. Church - August 2015

    Hi all .. This was one awesome church to explore! The colors, the architecture! Never seen a church like this before, unfortunately this one i closed right now but we were lucky we went there just a few weeks before they closed is. Still doable only with permission. Hope you enjoy my set! Pictures : 001 : E.T. Church (1) by Urbex Joey, on Flickr 002 : E.T. Church (2) by Urbex Joey, on Flickr 003 : E.T. Church (3) by Urbex Joey, on Flickr 004 : E.T.

  13. Hi all! Visited this awesome location May 2015. A lot of people told me that the place is very trashed and not worth a visit, i thought urbex stories so we gave it a try. See the result.

  14. Much like raws report-who i visited this with btw, can't find much history on the place, its a chateau, there's signs of restoration work started and then abandoned, the place is folding in on itself in places, couple of years and it will look like congo or nottenboum- visited on the rosbif 36 h invasion of france- all that really entailed was this chateau, a prison, a quarry, some sweaty sausages, a bottle of rum and a very very drunk merrprankster went a bit crazy editing in places, im staying in all weekend after a month of exploring and partying so i'm dragging it out for fear or becoming bored! oh yeah thanks raw for lending a brother a wide angle much appreciated! please forgive any unparallel lines as i'm still rocking a pissed sensor and yeah i took 3 angles of one banister- and what!! its a nice banister!! #banisterporn! thanks kids, take it sleazy
  15. Evening all, hope we are all having a lovely juan. right it's been a week since RAWs went up and its been a couple o' few weeks since my last report so thought i'd fire something up from weekend before last weekends 36 hour hop into france. pretty banging 36 hours really, got round a prison, a chateau and then went to an awesome party, more than most normal people get done in 36 hours anyway History. -right i just spent about 20mins digging through old reports trying to find some half decent history on the place which i could steal but cant see much about, all i found is that the place closed in 2011 and housed around 1500 inmates. As you will see the place is well buggered now, absolutely trashed and covered head to toe in graff, that said i cant speak for the womens side as we didn't get in there. The explore. Explored with Maniac, the_raw and elliot5200. Twas an early start on the morn of our departure and after good floor kipping session at the behest of mr manics hospitality we were well on our way to the tunnel. Landed in the general area of the prison around 11 and after picking up some lunch supplies and wandering around a car park looking for a bog for 20 mins we headed off towards the prison, as most will know there's a lovely little group of romany gypsys planted in the car park of the prison, heard stories of explorers getting corned in cells by them and shit so were a little bit on the ball, kept a a keen eye on the carpark as we scooted around to the access the place is pretty much wheelchair friendly now which made life easy but will have also lended to the reasons the place is so buggered. Once inside the main building we all kind of wandered off and got our shots, nothing particularly exciting went down, bumped into a few french explorers, had lunch at the centre of were the wings meet up, i got a boner when i found a puddle and that was about it. As trashed as it is i really enjoyed our few hour mooch in here, something a bit different, definitely would have been nice to get in the womens section but we were in a bit of a rush as we wanted to tick off a chateau before heading to our party destination. So yeah that was about it, no medieval style clashes with pikeys, no seccas chases, no horrific accidents-no ghosts, just a nice little mooch around an empty prison taking photos, smoking fags and eating chess n ham namwiches could have spent longer here i reckon, we saw a ladder for the roof but needed to get on the road to our next destination so skipped that, i'd defo go again if i was in the area. As for the infamous H15 carpark gypsies, i honestly think they are so used to people going in there the couldnt give a flying funk any more. Explorers and graffers have been going in for a few years now, we saw 2 possibly 3 other groups of french explorers in there as well as us- and that was just in the space of 2/3 hours. I hadn't seen a report for a while but this place obviously still major tour bus, just think the gypos are past caring who's snooping about, i blatantly got spotted up a watch tower by one of them and he didn't bat an eye. right then, on with a load of very similar pics of cell blocks with loads of infinity lines and wonky symmetry : P my sensor is pissed in my camera so horizontal parallel lines taper one side-AND ITS CLUCKIN WELL ANNOYING!!

  21. Situated in a wealthy area outside Paris we almost thought we were in the wrong place for this one but it was just well hidden amongst the trees. I don't know any history about the place unfortunately but it was clearly once a very grand house which has been left to rot for one reason or another. We spent an hour or so in here while it was chucking it down outside before heading onto a party with a bunch of French (& English) nutters 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. Oh yeah, there were some creepy dolls too Thanks for looking
  22. Hello all, Some pictures taken at "Manoir du professeur / Maison Denis" Have a nice day
  23. Hello, Some pictures from "La Niche" in France See you
  24. Our first stop off during a recent tour of European industry (and a few bloody houses!) found us peering through the fence at a shit-load of razor wire. The amount was topped by that at a steel works later in the trip, but that's another story - I think this area of Europe must have consumed twice as many razors as the entire rest of the world recently! Anyway, who ever let razor wire stop them....? Well - us, for a start. It kinda started to look like this might be a no-go before we even got past the fence. The second fence, that was. The first was quite easy and luckily the third - yes the place has three bloody fences! - didn't come with a risk of being grated alive. Just a risk of being eaten alive by dogs as we later discovered..... Marching on, we get to the welded-shut building and try to make our way in. Cue said dog, with his handler patrolling. I must have been wearing fart-proof pants that day because he didn't smell us despite me nearly shitting myself, and we ran for cover into what turned out to be an entry point into the building! Thanks for the helping out, le Fido Pics.... Peeping Turbine! Such pretty eyes! Thanks for looking. I'll eventually get round to putting this on my website www.bcd-urbex.com (cheeky plug haha) but for now you lot in NP can have it
