  1. France Bustes 2016

    Mad dash with Stussy for a fun dash in france As usual photofuckit has reduced quality
  2. France Warbirds graveyard

    Hi, . here some pictures from my trip in September. Of course this graveyard is known from everybody but i just want to share some of my pictures. This Airbase is still in activity but since 2014 it's no more a military base, it's now a private airfield with an association who dismantle and repair aircraft for museums. The museum can be visited officially but not the graveyard. So we park our car in the small neighbor village and walk a little in the night. We climbed the fence and waited for the sun. We spent just an hour there, not more For more pictures please click here Casse Mirage
  3. After travelling through the night and grabbing a couple of hours kip in a rather dodgy service station car park we arrived at this place for sunrise, and what a lovely relaxed way to kick of the weekend. There wasn't too much inside, but still enough to take a few pictures and have a nice mooch round. We didn't spend too long here, before hitting the road again and moving onto the next derp! As always, thanks for looking!
  4. Château de la Favorite , also called "Château du Prince Charles", was built in 1734 according to the plans of the architect Germain Boffrand and under the direction of Jean Marchal. It was owned by Charles Alexander. After his death in 1780, Emperor Joseph II inherited the castle, which offers it for sale. Until the 1990s the castle was still in good condition. After another sale, the castle was gutted. The roof was secured and windows were walled in the 21st century. A few years ago, it was still accessible through a window, unfortunately no longer today. 1 2 3 4 5
  5. Two weeks ago I was in France. This building stood opposite the hotel where I stayed. It was a former hotel. Large, but unfortunately completely gutted. I don't know when it was built or closed. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
  6. France Eglise MM, France - November 2016

    After a successful visit to Hospital Plaza I was most impressed - I thought it would be the highlight of the weekend, until we visited here. A beautiful church tucked away in a sleepy village somewhere. I'm under the impression it's only been abandoned for a year or two, as it's still in immaculate condition with working electricity. The decor is like nothing I've ever seen in a church before, and the stained glass windows were a work of art. We spent a good hour or two here, before moving onto other places! As always, thanks for looking!
  7. After only one and a half hours of sleep, I drove to France in the middle of the night. After a three-hour trip, I arrived quite tired at sunrise, climbed back over the wall and went through the bushes to the house. It belonged to a musician and was probably abandoned in the 80s. That’s all I know about it. Three years ago, the house was ransacked and very messy, as can bee seen on older photos on the Internet. Meanwhile, other photographers have tidied up there again. Inside there was still a lot to see: two pianos, an organ, fireplaces, peeled paint, furniture and lots of little things. I really liked the place a lot. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22
  8. The estate with the main-villa, a side building with chapel and a surrounding park was built from a textile manufacturer at the end of the 19th century, more specifically in 1899 (not in the 18th century, as is to be read often). The textile factory was closed in the 1980s, the villa has been uninhabited for more than 16 years now. Due to stupid vandalism a lot of things were destroyed, so also the piano in 2013. The villa itself burned down in summer of 2014. (about 1908) My fist visit was six years ago, in 2010. Now I’ve visited it again, to take some comparison shots. The current state is very sad ... 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Finally, a few more photos from 2010. 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
  9. It was difficult to reach this place one week ago. The first street was so icy and snowed up that I couldn't go on. The second road was already closed due to the snow. Just the third attempt was successful, coming on a road from the other side of the mountain. But it took a lot of time, because I had to drive very slowly and carefully uphill. There followed an arduous walk through deep snow until we finally arrived at the former hotel. Nothing special - it was stripped inside, in a bad state and partly with a lot of graffiti; but you still could find some nice views with growing plants in the upper rooms. The hotel opened in 1927. Partly destroyed by fire in 1970, then rebuilt with swimming pool and discotheque. The hotel was closed in 1994. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15
  10. It's always a great experience for an explorer like us, to visit places that we previously knew. This hotel is not really far away from where i live. When i was young, we usually went here on the lasts sundays of autumn for a walk... Surroundings are really beautiful and this small town is really charming. In the middle of it, this massive and luxiourious hotel / restaurant. Time flies, and this place getting really outdated... This place is now closed for 3 years, but we saw inside that he will be open again in few months. Enjoy !
  11. Tucked away in the middle of some woodland was this abandoned car graveyard full of old vehicles rotting away. Even having been given the exact coordinates for this place I still managed to walk past it twice it was that well hidden and overgrown… hard to conceive how the cars ever made it to this post and it gives a good idea to how long these cars have sat here… The vehicles were in varied conditions some being in quite a restorable position with more than a few past salvaging… I really enjoyed seeing the really old one with hand painted number plates! really something else! I’m no good with cars but have so far identified; Citroën Clover 5 CH, Renault nn, Citroën Rosalie, Tube Citroën and Simca 5 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24.

  12. France Chapelle des Morts

    During a little trip through France i've visit this beautiful chapel. It's not in use anymore and from the outside you couldn't tell it's abandoned. The entrance wasn't easy, but hey I made it I really loved the decay here and I was suprised to see those statues still inside. Hopefully this will be remain. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9 #10
  13. Build in the late 80's, "The Hopital Batman" is lost in the middle of the french campaign... Due to a huge deficit - 5 millions euros -, this reeducation center was closed in 2009. It was suppose to be renovated and to create a extension of 70 beds. All the employes and the patients was moved in another hospital in a bigger town.
  14. This school was build in the 17th century, during the reign of Napoleon III. Located in a beautiful park of 15 000m2, with some old majestic trees. During his two century of existance, 20 000 schoolers studied here. For a longtime, It was Considered like the greatest school in the region. The college was closed ten years ago. And a part of the site was bought for a youth rehabilitation device. For the biggest part, all the doors are closed and the windows sealed. We didn't saw the most interesting stuff like the neo-gothic chapel. This place has a huge potential, we definitely have to come and try again. The "non-urbex" pictures, mostly archives, make us drool with envy. The other buildings around Inside the main building
  15. West coast rpz.

    Hi Everybody ! First, i wanted to say sorry for my English, this isn't my mother language. I'm exploring across Europe since 4-5 years now. I've been in Belgium (more than 10 times), Deutchland, Luxembourg, Poland, Czech Republic, and Italy last summer. I'm also exploring in France, cause it's where i live. I post some pictures on my website (www.clementallet.fr) and also on Facebook but i'm not very active. Here's a selection my work, enjoy !
  16. France La Culotte de Mémé

    Hi all, An house somewhere in France....
  17. This was the first stop on our little euro trip! Not sure on the history of the place, but like many others around Europe its a beautiful house! Looking at other pictures online it looks a little stripped now. Thank You!
  18. France Chapelle des Morts

    Hi all, Some pictures of this little chapel somewhere in France I hope you will enjoy it
  19. - L'HOTEL DES FEMMES - A wine businessman of the region where this building belongs, gave as a present to his wife this hotel with four ladies on the façade. As a hotel, I don't know its success but was acquired by a rich family in the 50's until end 70's as its own mansion. Since the dead of the widow of 4 childs, the last of tenants, many functions had tried to do it but without success except preserve its memory. Time will tell.

  20. Explore; Another one from our France trip back in May, explored with @SpiderMonkey and @AndyK!. This was the last explore of our first day of being in France so only a few photos as we had limited sun light and still had a long car journey ahead. We were a little nervous about this one due to previous people talking about it and also seeing a man and his son on their bikes locking the gate at the top of the drive. However after a little detour around the wall and through the woods we were in. Unfortunately, most of the rooms had been stripped and nothing really there apart from a few things and all the pictures on the walls had been covered over. However, it was an alright explore and a nice way to end the day. Cheers for looking!
  21. France Chateau des Dieux

    Hi all, Only three pictures from "Chateau des Dieux" I will post more pictures of this castle soon
  22. Visited with @SpiderMonkey and @AndyK! on our very tiresome trip to France. Chapelle des Pelotes is part of an old seminary however we didn't bother exploring that part due to the chapel keeping us busy for a good few hours and we had other places to visit afterwards. However the chapel was worth the visit and missing out on parts. Getting into the building wasn't that difficult however, dodging the nosey french neighbours was a little difficult but with a lot of crouching, rolling and crawling we were in.:) From the top floor; Cheers for looking.
  23. Another instalment from the derp trip with Baron, we arrive nice and early in the morning with mist all round, we soon made our way to the right place and we were in. Not much to this place, it was fairly empty but there were several great rooms and the stairs or course! Stupidly on the way out, whilst climbing over the smallest wall ever, I slipped and impaled my hand on a spike, stupid boy! Thanks for looking!
  24. Part of Euro derpage explore with Baroness of Scotland, we ended up here fairly late in the afternoon to have a wander around. Parking up and making our way blindly through the trees we soon came across this site... Quickly making our way inside, it was a slight disappointment to see the place had been ransacked by thieves, little vandlism, but lots of things strewn around the rooms. Luckily we met an explorer inside who was the first to find the Chateau and he showed us pics of how it used to be, it was a bit of a shock and a sad reminder of what some people are capable of doing to earn a couple quid. So it was off to our next location, very nice explore indeed, even it had been messed up in many rooms. More pics can be found on my Flickr. Thanks for looking!
  25. This was the last stop on a rather impromptu day trip to Paris with a couple of friends. Despite this being mostly trashed I was looking forward to this one, and it didn't disappoint! We'd been in here a little while and heard some voices.. was it secca? A guy popped his head round the corner form about 50ft away, and within a few seconds disappeared again. No sign of camera gear we feared the worst, but with his disappearing act we carried on. Soon enough him and his mate emerged again, and a very awkward conversation (due to language barriers) later they were off again. They tried to give us a warning about the police as far as we could gather! Spent a good few hours in here - so long that we actually missed out boat! However that time was soon filled with a Quick and a beer or two As always, thanks for looking!
