  1. UK Formula 1 Headquarters - Aug 17

    So this F1 Team entered the sport in 2010. In its five years the team failed to score a single point with its best result being 11th at the 2012 Brazilian Grand Prix. Despite attempts to keep the team going into the 2015 season, the assets were seized and sold at auction while the 230 staff were made redundant. This site includes 150,000 sq ft of buildings, offices and a racing car testing facility. Unfortunately no F1 cars but nevertheless still made for a great explore. That's until the police arrived after we had triggered the alarm.
  2. The former London headquarters of Midland Bank, a Grade I-listed property designed by Edwin Lutyens and John Alfred Gotch and built in 1925, is soon to be turned into a boutique hotel. The imposing building, in the heart of the Square Mile, was vacated six years ago by HSBC, which bought Midland in 1992. It has since operated as a branch of NatWest and as a filming location for Channel 4's game show The Bank Job. It's vaults also appeared in the 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger. The sequence in which it appeared sees the Bond villain Oddjob meet his demise. The main hall was at one time the largest bank hall in Europe. The new hotel will be part of the Soho House group, which owns a string of private members' clubs (some with accommodation), restaurants and stand-alone boutique hotels. The large building will feature 255 rooms, as well as restaurants, bars, spa and gym facilities and a swimming pool. Work is now well under way so I was really lucky to see this when I did, I saw an opportunity and I seized it. I hope you enjoy the pics, they were all taken handheld in the space of about 5 minutes. Thanks for looking
  3. The papers straight in for the image steal Cheers for looking in
  4. Another one of my favourite explores and other than me and Revelation_space I've never seen any reports on this massive building that used to sit in Dyce. Didnt realise it was closed for a long time so we decided to pop along one day and have a look inside, think we spent about 8 hours in here going around the building the first time. This was BP's North Sea Headquarters until the new offices were built just behind this building, It was mostly just empty offices but there was some interesting bits here and there and the lighting was very nice. It was demolished in 2011 and is now a bunch of identical new build houses. These photos are taken over three visits where me and Revelation_Space pretty much covered the whole building. Loads of photos so I'll split it over two parts. Everything marked in Red here was empty on this site. We decided to catch the sunrise from the top floor then head up to the roof. The view across to the Airport. Most of the building was empty offices but I still liked them for some reason Various cabinets of switches etc left behind along with loads of Ethernet cable Quite liked the lighting here Vandalism was evident throughout Moving on to the Canteen Fancy meeting room Main Entrance I'll make a second post including stuff from the next two visits.
  5. The south east army command used an underground brigade headquarters in 1940 located on Canterbury road in Sarre. This was manned by Canadian troops. There were similar bases located at Canterbury, Reigate and Tunbridge Wells. The tunnels are approx. 50ft underground and originally had three entrances.. These entrances were blocked after the war and then bulldozed making it very hard to determine there exact location. One still remains accessible. The main tunnel The last remaining staircase in a good condition At the end of the main tunnel is a spur Leading to… Directly in front of the spur is another entrance Looking down what used to be the staircase The entrance – now backfilled Back in the chalk tunnel there are three small rooms. Some of these still have the original signs on the entrances. And finally at the furthest point of the chalk tunnel is the third entrance
