  4. Wanted to see this place for a awhile now and was over the moon to finally get into this awesome site.Spent a good few hours wandering the hospital and got to see some excellent features including the admin building and it's lovely staircase. Got to spend another couple of hours in the morning on a solo mooch which I will put up as a separate report. Visited with four local non members. History Severalls Hospital in Colchester, Essex, United Kingdom was a psychiatric hospital built in 1910 to the design of architect Frank Whitmore. It opened in May 1913. The 300-acre (120 ha) site housed some 2000 patients and was based on the "Echelon plan" - a specific arrangement of wards, offices and services within easy reach of each other by a network of interconnecting corridors. This meant that staff were able to operate around the site without the need to go outside in bad weather. Unlike modern British hospitals, patients in Severalls were separated according to their gender. Villas were constructed around the main hospital building as accommodation blocks between 1910 and 1935. Most of the buildings are in the Queen Anne style, with few architectural embellishments, typical of the Edwardian period. The hospital closed as a psychiatric hospital in the early 1990s following the closure of other psychiatric institutions. However, a small section remained open until 20 March 1997 1/2 3/4 5 6/7 8 9 10 11 12/13 14/15 16/17 18 19/20 21 22 23 Thanks For Looking
  5. Defo one for this section
  6. Arriving in the centre of Belval in Luxembourg, one can not help but look up at the huge blast furnaces which dominate the skyline. Ultra-modern high-rises and new-builds butted up against these giants are dwarfed. Looking at the building site at the base, we glance at each other.... "We NEED to go up there!" we agree. The Blast Furnaces - Image stolen from Google. We park up the car, check in at the Ibis, then head to some Buffalo place for a good helping of meat and a few beers while it got dark. Following a brief squabble about the size of the tip we head back outside and behold the monstrous marvels illuminated in the night sky and head straight for them! The steel works has long closed, but the Belval Blast Furnaces have not only been retained, but have been fully restored, coated with pretty paint and made into a visitor attraction. The new buildings at the base, presumably a visitor centre, were nearing completion and the towers will soon be open to the public. Mid-restoration as seen on Google Streetview: Being explorers, we weren't prepared to wait for the towers to open, or to pay for a guided tour during the day! We venture into the building site to check out the bottom of the furnace towers and discover the only way up is through the new buildings. Luckily we soon find our way to the roof where the 80 metre twisting and winding staircase begins. Being careful to stay out of the lights that illuminate the structure we make our way to the top. This unplanned adventure with with Proj3ct M4yh3m turned out to be a highlight of the trip. I'd opted to take my 24-105mm lens, whereas Mr Mayhem went for the 16-35mm wide angle. I kind of regretted not taking my wide angle, but should make for an interesting variation in shots. The lights in the old industrial structure provided some fantastic opportunities for shots and the view over the other blast furnace was amazing. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13.
  7. During a visit to London it would be rude not to hit up a few of the capital's rooftops! We visited a couple of them with great views. The first was a building site near Tower Bridge, offering great views of the bridge and along the Thames. It was a shame a crane was slightly obscuring the view from the tallest building, but it was still a great vantage point. A painful cloning job and the crane was gone! The second rooftop was on another building site where a 26 story skyscraper is being constructed. Set a small distance away from the city centre, the tower offers great views of the city skyline with some nice buildings in the foreground. I headed down south with Proj3ct M4yh3m and Spider Monkey, then met up with Peter, MrDan, and Dirty Jigsaw. Cheers guys Thanks for looking
  8. St Joeys at night

    First go at a video so it's not great but after the 1st 15 seconds it's kind of watchable
  9. After visiting the hospital back in august I decided I would get some more external shots at night. I entered the site as usual and headed towards the first set of buildings and started capturing some long exposures. It was a perfect night, the stars and the moon were shining bright, perfect! I then headed onto the main road however within a minute or so we spotted the secca and his dog walking towards us. I decided not to start running and calmly made myself around to the clock tower at the front. I crouched down for a minute or so before the secca and his dog walked past about 10ft away from me, how he didn't notice me I will never know. He then stayed on the corner of the road for what seemed like ages so I decided to head to the front gate and let myself out. Of course they spotted me walking out, so after talking to them for about 5 mins and them threatening to call the police I just walked out the gate and that was that. Being my first night explore I really enjoyed it, there's something about wandering around an abandoned building at night and taking photos that is quite peaceful Anyway along with the photos!

    Lost Tanks @Night 02-2014
  11. Hello, my name is Rowan, i'm 25 years old, and i live in Veldhoven (near Eindhoven) in The Netherlands. I've been urbexing for i think 5 years now, maybe 6. And i've visited a lot of locations, mostly in Belgium. Because here in Holland, if something's abandoned, most of the time they immediatly demolish it or put up security. And in Belgium, well, they don't. They just let it rot . But my Urbex experience is different than the most urbexers i think (Absolute NO disrespect to other urbexers, i respect their work). Because almost everytime we go, we go at night. And when we go at night, i don't take my DSLR with me, but i have also 2 GoPro's. And i film the whole urbex experience. So what you see in my movies, is the real exploring. And that's not always what you get from the photo's. Because in the photo's, you could have entered the room already twice or more, and then take the shot. But when we are exploring, you just see what we see, so you can see our real reactions. My GoPro is always mounted to my head with a headband. Enough talking here, let's post some examples. Urbexing Sanatorium Du Basil. Urbexing Tree Mansion. Urbexing Hotel Du Golf.
  12. One of the old, abandoned, derelict houses in the aerea where I live. I don't know the history of this house. Will add if I find out. It's located in rural farm land, and may very well be an old farm house. But it's also close to a church, so it may be a clergy house or similar. The shape of the roof is not traditional for Norway, but in the last century or so there's been some houses built like this, mostly inspired by US barns, I think. The log structure, logs open indoors, but covered on the outside, suggests it's built 1850-1920-ish. Of course it may be older, and logs covered on the outside later to follow fashion. But added up, my guess is 1880-1920-ish. The house is pretty big, two stories, large rooms, and it looks like the many, large windows are original, so my guess is those who built it was somewhat wealthy. Well. I'd been seing the house from the road, and decided to check it out. Novembers short days combined with a slow morning, it was already sunset when I got there. This is what I've seen from the road. Going there to have a look. Seeing the back side of the house I realised it was a lot more derelict than I thought. I'm guessing there was a wood stove here, that eventually got too heavy for the floor. I decided it was just simply too dangerous to go in. This house is on it's last legs, log walls barely balancing. One step in the wrong place, the whole thing comes down on top of you. So I just looked in from the outside, easy enough through the windows and where the walls were missing. Moon came up. I sort of photogasmed a bit. So. This house turned out to be too far gone for real exploration. I don't know if you count it as urbex when I didn't go in. But I've checked out the place, checked that box on my list, had a nice, cold adventure, and got some ok shots. Thanks for looking :-)
  13. The first photograph is of women working at Vernon’s Pools in 1936. Football pools has started in 1923 when John Moores and two friends handed out 4000 coupons outside Old Trafford. Initially, the business was slow and John Moores bought out his two partners who had lost confidence in the loss-making enterprise. Moores quickly turned Littlewoods round and millions of working people began to spend a few pence each week in what was the only national gambling competition (at that time it was based on agents house-calling rather than by mail). Vernons followed in 1925 – making Liverpool the centre of an industry which employed thousands of women checking the weekly returns.Vernons closed around 1975. The Paradox night club opened around 1992 & closed around May 2002 for refurbishment,but never re- opened again. The majority of the building was demmo'd around 2007 but the listed art decco tower remains today but in a bad state,locals are calling for the tower to be knocked down,calling it "a eyesore",plans are in the pipeline for a shopping complex to built there... cash office Various rooms As a night club
  14. Ok lets GO back a month, myself and Fishbrain wonder to ourselves if theres a cooling tower whats it cooling ??

After tumbling around for what seemed an hour we found the control room Host and Critical Mess hit the sleeping bags for some sleep whilst myself and illogical cracked open some beers and had a urbex catch up (TAILS OF FAILS AND EXPLORES)....Now not having any light we didn't know what we were sleeping on or in really just a room i woke up in the morning with 10mm of dust over my face in my ears and in my mouth ....great, any way nuff bitchin bitches on with the photos ...;-) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. Big THANKS to Illogical,Critical Mass & Host..........
  15. .. Well all that Google research pays off with a bit of Friday night action! Buried nicely in some prime countryside location this place has been left to rot! I am always amazed at the massive amounts of decay that occur in old research establishment; it does make you wonder what went on in these places? What did they just flush down the sink? the smell was pleasant..altho that probably had something to do with the tonnes of pigeon crap everywhere ! There was not much left of this place..the chiller pumps provided the most interest..all the labs had been stripped bare and those that were left were in a pretty shocking state. There was an awful lot of Police tape about the place along with several shotgun cartridges.. Visited on a very windy day! So there were lots of moments of “what was that� Entry was very funny exit was hilarious… You can’t beat a good bit of suction followed by some discharge ! No matter where you go there is always an abandoned chair ! Chilling pipes leading to one of the many cold stores.. Yikes! Bio-hazard ! The research lab ! Always wash your hands.. The lonely radiator.. Now the staircase was mildly interesting.. Beat that for a bit of peeling paint ! The knob twiddling room… The long corridor.. The green ooze.. A health and safety nightmare ! Chilling in the roof of the chilling room.. That’s it..a snap shot of the better bits of the place..hope you enjoyed it!
  16. West Park night (visit Feb 2010) 2013

    West Park was a nice site, but every man and his dog knew about it and the same shots used to get taken time and again. Reaperman (of http://abandoned-britain.com/ ) and I decided to do a night visit at a time when the place was extremely popular, and use it more as an experimenting ground for natural and artificially lit shots. Our aim wasn't to cover much ground, but to take shots until they came out right! It was a good experience and co-ordinating the lighting was good fun. Simply lit with torches and 2 coloured gels. Mr. B
  17. I'm lacking transport at the moment, so I decided to take a walk and have a revisit of my most familiar UE haunt. Sadly the place has gone downhill fast - it was sealed recently, but they left it a bit late... Once upon a time the site was in great condition, but has sadly become a victim of its popularity with local kids. The building is still sealed up well - so after a comedy entrance, I was inside. You could hear a pin drop - even though it was pitch dark, it was reassuring to know I would not have any unwanted company, after seeing how well the place is secured. I remember, months ago my girlfriend and I had a nasty shock while on the roof - hearing an angle grinder start up, before an awkward encounter with the culprits downstairs... There has been a mill on this site for roughly 150 years, with the large silo structures built considerably later. As I recall, the site ceased operation around 2005 due to modernization. The site is now in development hell (the plan was to convert the Grade II listed building into apartments) - the buyer paid too much and couldn't make a profit, and left the whole site unguarded for years. Anyway, as it was a good night for it, half the photographs are taken from the roof. The other half were taken while I tried not to fall through rotten floorboards... Thanks for looking!
  18. UK Scarborough night shots sept 2011

  19. UK Gawthorpe Water Tower by night June 2011

    First some history Gawthorpe Water Tower dominates the skyline and can be seen for miles around. It is located at the highest point of the Ossett-cum-Gawthorpe area, mid-way along Chidswell Lane in Gawthorpe. This huge concrete structure was constructed between 1922 and 1928 to store drinking water for the town, which was pumped from the Pildacre Water Works some 1.25 miles away. The 25-foot trough has a capacity of 200,000 gallons or nearly 1 million litres. The pinnacle of the tower is now also used to accommodate colinear mobile telephone aerials and they can be clearly seen in the picture. Pildacre Colliery was flooded on the 6th November 1910 by a vast inrush of water estimated as entering at 30,000 to 50,000 gallons an hour. The colliery was closed and 250 men and boys were made redundant overnight. This natural and very unexpected event was seen as a potential source for a much-needed new water supply for the rapidly expanding town of Ossett. Responsibility for Ossett's water supply was undertaken initially by the Local Board of Health, forerunner of the Council before the borough was incorporated, after it came into being in 1873. Short-term arrangements were made with the Waterworks Committee of Batley Town Council for water to be bought from Batley Corporation reservoir near Holmfirth, and on the 20th May 1876, the first sod of the water reservoir at Gawthorpe (seen in the left of the picture above) was cut by Mr. John Whitaker. In the early years of the 20th century, Ossett was still without a permanent source of water. On the 1st June 1907, the Town Council entered into a 30-year contract with the Dewsbury and Heckmondwike Waterworks Board to take a minimum of 2 Million gallons of water per week from its reserves. As the demand on water in the Ossett area grew, the Dewsbury and Heckmondwike Waterworks Board gave warning that it could no longer guarantee to meet this increasing need. It was this that made Ossett Town Council turn to the vast untapped reservoir of water, which was underground at Pildacre. An Act of Parliament in 1922 gave authority for the new water supply and Pildacre Colliery was bought. The Pildacre Waterworks were opened on the 25th February 1928 by Councillor J. H. Moorhouse, then the Chairman of the Ossett Water Committee. The two pumping engines installed to draw up the water from the old mine workings and then pump it to the new water tower at Gawthorpe were named Maud and Edith. Engineering contractors for the project were Hathorn, Davey and Co. Ltd. An element of mystery still surrounds the origins of the water, which poured into the Pildacre pit in 1910. Traditionally, it was believed that the source was an artesian borehole. It was known that miners refreshed themselves from a well at the bottom of the shaft. In more recent times, a leading geologist, Mr. Edgar Morton, who investigated Pildacre said that the mine water was almost certainly surface water, filtered down from an above ground catchment area. By the early 1970s, the water at Pildacre had almost dried up. The surrounding area has become increasingly urbanised and surface water caught on the roads or house roofs is now drained off and channeled ultimately back to the rivers instead of filtering naturally through the ground. The Pildacre workings continued to provide water for Ossett until September 1974 when the source was transferred to the Fixby treatment works near Huddersfield (Fixby is adjacent to Junction 24 on the M62 West). Been meaning to do this tower for months and as i was in the area it had to be done, on getting to the gate i was expecting it to be locked but this is an understatement ! WTF !!! came to mind ! To be honest you could climb the gate but why bother, going back down the road a small way I climbed over a wooden farmer’s fence through the trees to my disbelief I was in the grounds of the big tower! Ending with a look over the near by bakery.
