Urbex Central New Zealand posted a topic in Public buildings, Education & LeisureThis old college was a religious secondary school built in a religious Ã¢â‚¬Å“communeÃ¢â‚¬Â solely by volunteer labour missionaries in the 1950Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s who worked for the church. The school has a huge American influence as you can tell by the pictures, it is huge! The amount of things left behind is also astonishing, what a waste! The school was closed when church leaders accepted that mainstream schools offered Ã¢â‚¬Å“quality educationÃ¢â‚¬Â and the school has started to be demolished to either be converted to farmland or some other future usage. Our explore here began by cautiously entering a construction zone, in the past we had been greeted by angry residents who live on the commune and we were chased into a wet marsh behind the school, so this time we did our best to avoid that situation. After finding access presumably created by vandals, we were greeted by a huge American style school including full size swimming pool, gym and theatre, all without any signs of vandalism and the only graffiti being that of previous students to the school, making it the best abandoned school we have seen so far in New Zealand.

I've been waiting over three years to go here but due to one thing or another it just never happened. However with a weekend off and some good company I finally found myself under the moores of Middleton, a small village in Derbyshire set in the southern margin of the peak district where the last working limestone mine in the uk is located. This first thing that I have to say is that this mine is absolutely humongous! Over 20 miles of tunnels spanning over multiple floors with high ceilings and some huge caverns this was set to be a truly memorable explore. Although photographing this colossal space turned out to be a challenge in itself (as if the risk of getting lost or falling down one of the huge pits wasn't enough!). I'd say that in our 4 hours or so inside I don't think we saw over 10% of whats down there. It's taken me a very long time to get round to seeing this but I can guarantee it's gonna be a lot shorter time before I go back. Thanks to everyone involved it was a great trip!
Ryda posted a topic in Underground ExploresI cannot give the location of this site out, as amazingly, it is under my friends cellar in his house! Lucky lad! I popped down today to take some pictures, it has been covered on underground kent, but rather boringly, so I thought id jazz the place up a little, and it was good practise for me haha the tunnel itself is entered by some steps from the cellar, then you have a tunnel running to your left and right, about 7 metres each side. At the end of the right side however, there is a small hole in the top of the tunnel that leads up to the garden, this has been covered with some thin plastic, because its hidden in the bushes so nobody will fall down it! Straight ahead of you is a chalk tunnel that leads down the the well, which is approx 260ft deep. Standing on the well grille and looking up you can see that it would have met ground height, but the owners have now capped the top. I played with long exposure A LOT, im sorry... im learning Entrance these used to drain water down into the well These markins were apparently found here &&&& here is the beast... Can you notice a small hole a few metres down?? hmm Looking back up, capped off at surface level Back into the cellar, can anyone think why there is a clear arch in the bricks Its taken me fooking ages to set all this up so if i might have forgotten anything, if you want to check here my photobucket http://s485.photobucket.com/albums/rr220/Ry_Da/secret/
