Italy Villa Olympia, Italy - February 2018

Recommended Posts

This was the first stop in Italy with Elliot5200 & @shaddam last month. I don't know any history unfortunately but it's a stunning building and I wouldn't mind living in it! I normally write a lot more than this but I'm not sure what else to say. Oh, we went for a pizza afterwards. Pics:

Very nice. Was there two years ago and liked it a lot.

It's a pitty that you didn't find the corridor with the stairs down to the church.

Such a beautiful place. I missed it on my last trip to Italy but will certainly go there on my next. 

It's pretty cool in there, although not my favourite kind of place to be honest

For this reason, I only went to church at the very end, after I already had taken pictures of everything else inside the mansion. And I crept downstairs very slowly and quietly on tiptoe.

      hi having finished a job fairly nearby it was time to do another one on my to do list that being clarborough railway tunnel.
      clarborough tunnel was built in 1850 and lies just over 2 miles from retford in nottinghamshire on the branch line of the sheffield to lincoln line
      which sees an hourly service between the 2 cities and occasional freight trains and is a site of special scientific intrest and houses clarborough nature reserve on top of the tunnel.
      proposed in 1844 and completed in 1850 by the manchester sheffield and lincoln railway ( MSLR)  continues to trent junction where it joins the great northern and great eastern joint railway ( GN&GEJR)  from doncaster and continues eastwards to cleethorpes via brigg and in a southerly direction to lincoln where it rejoins the east coast main line south of peterborough there was also a junction at clarborough which ran via torksey to sykes junction continuing on to lincoln and cleethorpes via market rasen this closed in 1959 but reopened in 1967 as far cottham to serve the power station all other freight traveling via gainsborough lea road  .
       
      now a word of warning to would be explorers..... exploring live railway tunnels is not something to be approached lightly  unlike dead tunnels  they still have frequent trains running through them most are tucked out of the way and may be difficult to access but the main considerations are safety first dont do anything which would put yourself in danger and always be constantly on the look out for trains and most of all ensure you are not seen as nowadays they delay trains which incurs fines for the operator so BTP will not be sympathetic if you get caught and you may find yourself in front of the magistrate.
       
      that said  clarborough tunnel is accessed fom church lane  following the road for around a mile untill  i found the line at cherry holt crossing on whinleys road a continuation  of church lane my goal clarborough tunnel was around a quarter mile further on but not fancying playing dodge the train i parked the car at the locked crossing gates and set off on foot uphill again to find a way to  the tunnel.
      passing cherry holt farm i attracted the attention of a rather loud doberman dog  who proceded to follow me up the farmers field barking loudly being glad there was a large fence between myself and it walked in to the wood and nature reserve.
      following the main path through the wood i gained the nature reserve and found the ventilation shaft for the tunnel continuing on the right hand path found myself at the top of the east portal of clarborough tunnel.
      the next qustion was how to get down to it with a very steep bank and bushes after much probing found a gap and had to slide down the steep bank on my arse using my boots and grass as a brake eventually reaching the bottom  and ensuring nothing was lurking walked towards the tunnel.
      an aproaching train caused me to take cover behind a retaining wall after which i spent around 20 mins photographing and deciding the best way out.
      not really fancying a 650 yard walk through the tunnel then a quarter mile to the crossing and not having a timetable it had to be the same way i got in  but this time up the side of the tunnel bank and across the tunnel top and after much climbing  got over the  fence and rolled myself a fag while i regained my composure  returning back through the reserve picked up a big stick lest my 4 legged friend should be around  and find a way through the fence at least i,d got something to brain it with.
      there was no sign of the dog  and thought it had gone in for its tea untill a large shape rounded the corner barking furiously yes my friend was back and continued to follow me down the field to much barking.
      leaving my walking stick at the crossing for someone else to use managed to grab a couple of train pictures to add to my report and another explore crossed off the list.
      cherry holt crossing the adventure starts here.... 

      clarborough tunnel in the distance the signs warn engineers they are entering a site of scientific intrest and must obtain special permission to work here.

      Hi all, we are back already with another video! This time we had been tipped off of an abandoned Chinese resturant in Southampton and what an explore it was! It turns out that everything had been left behind although the place being slightly trashed.
       
      I couldn't find to much in regards to history of this place but I don't think it's too extensive but after looking at the reviews it seems pretty obvious why this place was closed down as it was stated as having terrible customer service and wasn't very hygenic.
       
      Hope you like the video, like always open to feedback. I am looking at getting new equipment to help with low light so please bear with me!

      For those who is planning to go to Antwerp metro! Beware that it's Belgium, and the actual presence of trams in the tunnels might not be consistent with their schedule!
      Being already inside one of the tunnels of the active line, we suddenly heard noise behind. I checked the schedule in advance, the next tram was supposed to be only in 8 min, but  it was behind us now! There is nothing in the tunnel where one could hide in, so we had to run to the next station. We managed to hide there right before the tram arrived (thanks to the guy I was with, because he found a good place while I didn't know what to do  ). I don't know if the driver saw us or not, but no one came to search for us.
