OK plane ticket is getting booked...I have to see this, absolutely stunning images, I think this is my favourite so far of your reports.


Any time. Just book a plane to New York and I will so you some places.

What a depressing place :( But great pictures as always

Mate, stop tempting us Brits with all this urbex porn. Seeing the pictures from 'over the water' makes me think about the law you guys have with trespass and the like?

Good urbexing - Slow.

Thanks. I see alot of stuff from your side of the Pond I will love to check out. What happens to you over there with trespass?

Fantastic photos as usual.

I think what strikes me about the places you find are the lack of graffiti and other mindless destruction. A site like that in the UK would be trashed beyond all belief unless it was very difficult to get into, but what you have there seems much more like natural decay and dereliction, unless you've managed to photograph it in such a way to give that impression.

Generally in the UK and Wales if you're unlucky enough to get caught it can go one of two ways. If its security, very often you'll be told to bugger off after showing them how you got in, if it's the police normally they'll do a 'stop and search' procedure where they'll search your bags and pockets, and then let you go with a pink slip to add to your collection. If you're unlucky you can end up getting arrested (although this is rare) under the pretence of Attempted Burglary or similar, or if they really know their stuff, there's a law from about the 1800's which is cited as 'being in an enclosed space' although really they're applying that law out of context as it was never intended for those reasons. It's a total waste of their time, as they'll interview you and let you go normally, and I think they only arrest you out of a kind of 'you wasted our time, now we're wasting yours' kinda attitude which sucks.

Most of the time thou it's a few sarcastic comments and disbelief at what we do and they let you go on your way. Site's not to get caught in are anything Live military, Airports, Railways and Utilities such as Electricity, they get a bit touchy about such places and bring out the terrorism act. :roll:

It all classifies as trespass, which under UK law is a civil offence and you can't be arrested or prosecuted for it. However if a landowner asks you to leave and you don't, it then becomes aggravated trespass which you can be arrested for. If a landowner catches you and suspects you have caused damage, they can sue you in the civil courts for damages, however the burden of proof is quite high and it's extremely rare.

The law in Scotland is a little different, but I can't recall the differences off the top of my head.

      This building used to be a monastery but in the first World War it was turned into an emergency hospital for soldiers who fought in the trenches. Many Belgian soldiers were brought into care here, which explains why the ' don't spit on the floor" sign is both in French and English.
      We came here on a chilly winters day in December. I loved how the warm sunlight supported the nice colours in the building. 
      It's also the first location in which i stripped down to take a selfie, to find out later on,  loads of other explorers had been there on the same day. this could had turned out very awkward









      Thanks for watching.

      Abandoned and decayed. One of the most interesting place I've visited with exciting building structure, combined with decaying details. Shame about the place is about to get knocked down. An experience to remember.

      The abandoned mining hospital, located in Hungary, dates back to the nineteenth century. A coal mining company in 1898 began construction of a small mining hospital, which began operations with the approval of the Minister of the Interior on December 17, 1900. The hospital. According to descriptions, it has been adapted for 50 beds. There was a surgical, internal and infectious department. The building was full of lighting, sewage and bathrooms. The facility was one of the most modern hospitals at the time. The care was extended to include the epidemic (1909) and the pharmacy. In 1911 the number of residents increased to such an extent that the hospital was no longer able to meet this number. In 1911, a new hospital was started, which started operating in 1912. The necessary buildings were built in the courtyard of the hospital (morgue, a section of the hospital, a chapel, a house for doctors and nuns, a horse farm). The three-storey hospital had 129 beds for patients who were placed in 23 units. The mining company was responsible for maintaining the hospital, covering all personnel and all costs. Despite many years of change, the mining hospital developed with the development of mining. The hospital was relocated in 1998 to a new hospital complex. Hungarians are tightly attached to the old building and have been trying to save one of the oldest buildings in the city for several years. It was sold for approximately HUF 276 million ($ 1 million). I am planning a rehabilitation center, an oncological center and a nursing home.
