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 is a repeated place and one that the whole of OS know.
      I stumbled across a old report on another forum and since havent seen many others post so here it is..
      Little Plumstead was home to Norfolk’s main “mental deficiency colony”. In recent years, it has closed down. Sadly a lot of the buildings have been demolished to make way for housing. Part of the site remains in use as a hospital. This section is due to close soon, with around 100 patients moving to community-based services.
      It has since demolished a lot of buildings including the pool leaving only 6 derelict standing buildings caked with decay and fragile floors.
      The hall itself attracts a lot of explorers and ghost hunters and has seen fire damage and metal thievery as well as tagger.

      The upstairs of all the buildings in which extensive decay can be seen, warped floors, carpet going down into the non exsistant rafters and debris and scattered paper everywhere plus that lovely smell of dampness and black mould that we all love... masks are needed although ive never worn one.

      The inside of the hall is to me like a chateu whilst ive only ever seen one on groups or forums its very simliar with its arch designs and colours.

      Every time i have gained access and seen this place, it draws me in i cant explain the feel in the hall but its almost like you are being watched and waiting for a zombie to smash through a door and come and bite you.
      There is so much decay the floors upstairs are gone in some areas and in others there simply is no floor at all, Trollys left, files scattered, medical reports everywhere, spend needles and some aperatus is left.

      Massive rooms for treatment as seen from very old pictures of the place, The asylum itself seemed to have a ward for un married women who were pregnant and were made to be treated as the public rejected them (Information to be confirmed), However no evidence of this has been seen.

      It has since been boarded up and checked on at regular intervals due to the amount of breaking in the building's recieve with thick ply and mastic being placed and security screws everywhere entrance other than the local kids breaking in is almost impossible to gain entry at least without doing it the naughty way which i personally dont agree with.

      The once grand staircase now completely trashed

      Rooftop views (Very fragile lead roof)

      Finally, im a celebrity nutter GET ME OUTTA HERE haha

      Hopefully if and when there is a entry point again we will be able to obtain more detailled pictures but until then,,,,
