HI guys new member posting for the first time
Joined some time back but then got put on the backburner for a while
finding it hard to get into really and could do with some guidance as I'm alone in my interests in my circle of friends and could do with some pointers.
I'm in the NW of England and not sure of the protocol on this but looking maybe to tag along with some experienced explorers in my area if that is at all possible
Ok, first post on here, so hope you enjoy. Just a small explore from middle of last year but an interesting little one one nonetheless.
The Royal Victoria closed bit by bit over the last few years, finally becoming empty last year. Each time we pitched up there was always something still active so we accidentally left it a bit too long without checking. Big mistake, the neds burnt half the place to the ground and a sh!tload was demod to make it safe.
Anyway, we managed to explore a good but of it but only took photos of the main block. The old Victorian building despite looking externally brilliant - has been so modernised inside there is no hall anymore - just a bunch of admin rooms.
Enough babbling - on with the pics

What's up guys! Been having my account a month or 2 ( maybe longer ).. Didn't make a single post so far, so thought i'd do good with introducing myself.
To start with i'm an euro, coming from Belgium, 25yo and exploring since 2013-2014.. Only the last 2 years i started bothering to bring my camera with me! And ever since , i've been loving it !
Why do i love it? Well why do you guys love it?! It's amazing to see what people leave behind , and to see the storys behind the locations.. Some have interesting facts , some dont have no background at all.. It's amazing what we explorers end up with. Sometimes we end up knowing all it's historics , sometimes we're left to guess and bring some links/clues toghetter ourselves.. that's what fascinates me,and it's always bringing adventure back..
And it's the adventures we need in life we won't be thinking of the days we'd sat infront of TV watching a fun movie later on...
We will be thinking of the days we had to hide our asses , hysterical breathing after sprinting and sneaking away from secca's
Oh what a fun times
