  3. Nestled in a small town in Luxembourg sits a very strange hotel, it certainly is up there with the weirder locations I have explored. According to the sign outside it was indeed a hotel and certainly looks that way, but the whole place has a Mary Celeste feel about it, like everyone just vanished. There is a lot of 'older people' medication in various rooms, plus clothes and loads of personal belongings, it reminded me more of the Malvernbury Care Home than a hotel. And the paperwork, oh my god I have never seen so much paperwork in one location before. Books, magazines, documents, newspapers, leaflets, scattered everywhere, way more than there is apparent room for. More here https://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie427/sets/72157646006326332/

  5. So after an offday with a lot of fails we decided to visit this small hotel again After 3 or 4 years of abandoning it's still in very good shape and we noticed there's still some activity #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6
  6. A small hotel, visited 2 weeks ago. THe place was looking like it was abandoned for a just a week, but ive heard the place is out of buisiness for 3 years now. #1 1 #2 2 #3 3 #4 4 #5 5 #6 6 #7 7 #8 8 #9 9 #10 10
  7. On our 2 day trip trough germany we went to this place A hotel that's been abandoned for some time now. At the bottom floor there were signs of workers,so we weren't that comfortable and decided to leave after an hour and a half Getting in out was a huge assignment and a hell but with a lot of sweat we made it #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6
  8. I have passed this place on the A38 hundreds of times but never seam to have time to stop and take a look, its been like this for years and looking at some old reports I have missed its prime by a good few years. I was heading up the track Friday evening and decided to take a detour from the normal M5 and go over the old bridge and up the A38. I parked nearby and went and was going to only have a quick look but over a hour later I got back into my car. As I said, its long passed its sale by date and I had a look in the downstairs of the hotel park and its well boarded up and very dark in there, so I went up instead and found the floor had given away in places. The main building was a different matter and other than the very top floor was no problem, there were three places which had been cordoned off by the police (Or someone who had nicked some of their tape ) so I don't know if in the past something big had happened there (I cant find anything on the web) My friends who used to live nearby said they used to go to the discos they held there, they said they were never that good and they closed down just over 10 years or so ago. As it had been standing so long I was surprised it wasn't full of good graffiti, but it was just full of tags and crap All the photos can be found here https://www.flickr.com/photos/cunningplan/sets/72157644666013389/ Thanks for looking
  9. The Salston Manor Hotel is set in the beautiful Otter Valley, only a short distance from Ottery St Mary. For many years guests came to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Devon countryside with all the convenience of modern living in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Salston Manor Hotel Its beautiful location and comfortable rooms allowed visitors to enjoy all kinds of benefits and its convenient location, almost right in the centre of East Devon made it an ideal base to explore the delights of the area. As a family run hotel, it started life as a family home and retained all the charm of a country house and comfort of a home. There are five and a half acres of grounds that guests could enjoy and the hotel also benefited from an indoor swimming pool, a sauna and solarium for days when it was raining. At one time it was the home of William Hart Coleridge, nephew of the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge. William was the retired Bishop of Barbados and the Leeward Islands where he had worked hard and zealously for sixteen years. In 1841 he became ill and was forced to retire so he settled at Salston House, which later became the hotel. William died suddenly at the house on the 21st December 1849. In more modern times, Elisabeth Svendsen moved here with her husband in 1966 to run the hotel and in 1969 she purchased her first donkey. One thing led to another and she set up the Donkey Sanctuary to help to care for neglected donkeys. For a time the squash court was the home of the Ottery St Mary Heritage Society's Museum but when the hotel closed in 2007 the museum became homeless. During this period there was a fire engine rally held in the grounds where beautifully restored and cared for vintage fire engines were on show. Nowadays, the rally is held at Escot. Now, sadly, the hotel is closed and it's really sad to see the security fencing that blocks the entrances. It's a shame that such a beautiful, historic building is standing empty. At one time there were discussions about turning it into a residential care home but these plans seem to have stalled in the current economic climate.
  10. I haven't been about for a while but just had a busy weekend exploring, this was the first and there will be a couple or more coming up as soon as I have the time. I used to frequent this place in the late 70s early 80s and it was a nice little pub, I've known its been empty for ages but thought it would be well locked up and never gave it a second thought. Then Friday afternoon a friend of mine came into the garage and said it was open. He was working nearby and noticed a broken window so had a quick look and took a couple of photos on his phone. As we both finished at 5 it was arranged to meet just after. (We both went back on the weekend to go down the cellar as it was short notice we only took or cameras (I managed to grab my tripod)) The metal thief's had done a good job on the floors upstairs and the kids had done a good job on the rest, but all in all there is still lots of odds and ends about. Had a busy weekend so will have a look for some history as soon as I can, one room though had been done out as the inside of a old boat (The Mary Rose) but that was since the last time I was there. On to the photos with the full set here https://www.flickr.com/photos/cunningplan/with/14214713672 Thanks for looking

  13. Hello again. Here is another hospital report. I visited Thornton last February and it was my first explore done with another fellow explorer (non-member). In retrospect, the place is not all that interesting as a whole, but at the time it the first hospital I had the chance to get into, and it was a place of firsts. Thornton, located in Fife in Scotland, was a fever hospital. It is hard to find a lot of information online. Here is one bit of info I located: These buildings were built as part of an isolation hospital (serving mainly patients with diphtheria, scarlet fever, meningitis etc); later one building was used as a hotel but now the whole place seems to have been abandoned. [link here] It has also been made known that after the hospital was shut down, the place served as a children's home and later they used it to park lorries used by Strathore Plant Hire Ltd. If you consider the hotel business that also ran for a few years, one can understand why this place holds a million of random stuff piled up and laid to rest there, from lorry tires and magazines, to toys and a wheelchair. The whole complex is right on Strathore road, but apart from a house where people still live in, there is nothing else in the vicinity. So if you are relatively quiet and avoid attracting the attention of the residents of that house, it is a very easy explore. We parked on the side of the road and headed up the muddy pathway leading to the west side of the complex. No big drama, very easy to get instant access (no fences etc). The place has been left to rot and fall into the hands of vandals for some time now and it shows right from the get go. What is also clear is that you can find many interesting things to shoot. Love switches One of the big rooms. The typical hanging apparatus. A red door always makes the explore more exciting. We spent quite some time there, mostly because we were on a mission. As Di had been there before, she knew of a wheelchair that was said to be around. In older reports we had spotted the old wheelie and we really wanted to locate it. Weirdly enough, the chair at some point had decided to play the role of the Chief and McMurphy and we found it in the position below: It took about 30' to free the wheelie. I must say I felt a far more greater sense of accomplishment having dislodged the tree branches that had managed to grow through the wheel's spokes, than when I got my master's degree. I literally wanted to lift the chair over my head and scream. Instead we rushed it into the almost perfect corridor and had a bit of fun. One of the 2 corridors. The other corridor. Another interesting bit was when walking around a room I suddenly, in a very bullet-time slo-mo effect kinda way, felt my right foot sink into the floor. It was my first ever experience of the sorts and the feeling was a mixture of "what the heck is going on here?" and "should I laugh or turn white?". It's funny that several explores since then and some really bad floors, stepping on a rotten floor that feels like a waterbed has become such a familiar feeling. Psycho shower. Silent hill. Just piles of trash upon trash upon trash...and a chair. And a baby chair. After running through all the hospital buildings we moved to the hotel that was in the worst shape of all as clear indications of a fire and a collapsed roof invited us in. We both climbed halfway up the stairs but I believe we made the right call of not trying the first floor. When you feel you can squeeze your fist through the floor I think it's a sign not to continue. But then again who knows...that's the beauty of this I guess. The fact that you really can't tell most of the time so you just use your gut feeling at any given moment. Maybe a different day I would have tried it. Bar fight results. Wallpaper delight. The hotel was quite interesting with its big bar/restaurant bit where tv stands where still screwed on the walls and several curtains still hanging untouched by the fire. The kitchen was also quite cool with nice peeling. Generally all the buildings had some really nice wall decay. Thornton is one of those places where setups are so over-done that I guess it might end up feeling too staged to satisfy you. Don't get me wrong, I loved the glow worm doll in the baby trolley and other stuff, but yeah, I always prefer experiencing something that nobody has messed with, despite the obvious value from a photographer's point of view. Like this one, one of the best setups I have encountered. After taking a few more exterior shots (nice cloudy day) we left Thornton. I can safely say I won't be revisiting ever. However, I am really happy I got that under my belt. For more photos on Thornton and other explores check my facebook page. Thanx for reading!
  14. UK Casino / hotel - birmingham - 2014

    This is my second visit to this site, to some it will maybe be a little boring due to being a building site, but for me its a heavenly place. I just love seeing these big projects take form, and usually there's a great up high fix for added sexiness. sorry about the quality of some shots, the lighting was difficult to play with, and it was unbelievably windy up top. There are 6 cranes at this site, some baby ones, some mid sized ones, and the highest being stood in the middle. The high one was the only way, failure was not an option. cheers guys hope you enjoy Construction work on a casino, hotel, cinema and shopping complex at the NEC. It's being built by a Malaysian gambling firm, Genting. It's being called Resorts World, Birmingham. There'll be a four star hotel with 170 rooms, 45 shops, an eleven screen cinema and a casino. 1750 jobs have been created for the construction of the seven-storey, 538,000sq ft complex. Genting is a huge Malaysian company which is involved in producing palm oil, gas and power generation and operates cruise ships. It already operates four casinos in Birmingham and Coventry. The idea behind the scheme is to mainly attract people to the NEC but to convince those who come for concerts to stay longer and spend money at the hotel, in the shops and in the casino. Experts say the regional economy will benefit from a £60 million boost during the building of the casino complex and up to £33 million per year after the opening. Construction at the site, next to the LG Arena, will last two years with the centre due to open to the public in early 2015. Resorts World Birmingham will comprise of: 170 room four star hotel with five star suites and spa A designer outlet centre with 50 units selling a range of discounted fashion, shoes and electronics A 11-screen cinema with state-of-the-art digital technology A multi-use banqueting and conference centre A casino offering a contemporary and exciting gaming experience A wide range of internationally-themed restaurants and bars.
  15. This manoir was all alone at the end of a road to nowhere , standing next to the water . We entered and we were very carefull because we heared a hobo was living there, lucky for us we didn't see anybody. This manoir is jammed with stuff , so much I didn't have a good idea where to start or even how to start, I'm not pleased with the result . Normally you like residential locations to be packed , but not like this .... Strange , but awesome location , it once was a hotel , not it only has 1 guest "the hobo"
  16. Spent some hours in that nice hotel shooting, unfortunately the housekeeper wouldn't let us shoot in some parts of this location like the nice saloon or the expensive rooms... My pictures: 1: 2: 3: 4: 5: 6: 7: 8: 9:

  18. As far back as the Council's planning history relates (1948), the site has always been a hotel. Historic maps also confirm that from at least 1950 the site was documented on OS maps as Newport Towers Hotel.The site eventually closed in 2006 due to the m5 taking passing trafic away from the area and the hotel became unviable
  19. UK Thistle Hotel, Manchester - Jan 2014

    Hi All! Can't seam to find any information on this building, but it is a grade 2 listed building . . . . . Visited again with a non-member, and despite he has been here before, decided to show me this one. This time it started to rain quite hard, but decided to press on, hence my camera took a few spots of rain on the lens and a little bluring due to wind
  20. Hello, Visited here recently with a Non- Member. Gave quite good views, apart from it being quite windy and raining, which have a little of my photos some lens flare :-/ Thanks for looking in ;-)
  21. The Royal York Hotel,a fine Art Deco style building completed in 1935 , replacing the original Victorian hotel of the same name. Closed in 2006. My guess is that it will be turnt into flats in the near future! The video tour! http://youtu.be/mKuRE1R4xvY
  22. The Dormy Hotel Ferndown Dorset Not going to go into history as there isn't much i don't think. it was a luxury hotel i believe and looking at it i would say the same. Set in Ferndown Dorset this has clearly been the target of a lot of vandalism and arsonists shame really.... was an entertaining early wet start (hence bad photos used iPhone instead of camera) Visited with a Explorer Freind Thanks for looking
  23. Hi mates! I'm glad to share with you my last report. There you'll see a very destroyed hotel, used as a hospital in the spanish civil war. Hope you enjoy! Cheers!
