Hello! I write here for the first time. I'm an explorer from Russia and I'd like to communicate with people all over the world;)

I hope It would be interesting for you to watch some places in Russia. I'm keen on not only abandoned places but working industry as well. Sorry I'm not so exellent in photography and English;)

Today I wanna show you the siderite mine in Chelyabinsk region.

Actually It's not abandoned but some drifts are not in use.

We climbed down the minus 80 horizont and walked though the tunnel.

We met friendly miners there. At first they were scared because we could get into troubles (there were blasting in this drift) but then they allowed us to take photos of their electric locomotive and the process of loading it with ore.

After that we walked to the abandoned shaft-sinking set.

This is the ventilation pile driver where we penetrated into the mine.

I hope I did everything right because It's difficult for me to understand the site sometimes:D

Thank you!

      Afternoon,
       
      Thought i had lost these pictures forever, but alas numerous devices raided for pictures and i managed to rescue enough to warrant a report. Had my eye on this place from the moment it closed, situated in a village with most of my family in it. Infact often looking out across the fields from the garden of their home wondering when it would actually close eager to have a look around somewhere that had not on shaped the surrounding landscape, but employed relatives over the years.. then it did... time for a look.
       
      History;
       
      Thoresby Colliery was a coal mine in north Nottinghamshire. The mine opened in 1925, and closed in 2015, then Nottinghamshire's last coal mine.
       
      The first two shafts in 1925 were sunk to 690 metres (2,260 ft). The shafts were deepended by 109 metres (358 ft) in the 1950s. After privatization of the National Coal Board in the 1990s the mine was taken over by RJB Mining (later UK Coal as UK Coal Thoresby Ltd).
       
      In April 2014 it was announced that the pit would close July 2015. The colliery's 600 employees had been reduced to 360 by the time of the closure in July 2015.
       
      The wander;
       
      Visited this place with non member xcon2icon/Frankie Jaeger - not sure what he wants to be referred to as.
       
      We had spent the last few nights camping in the Peak District, climbing and venturing into mines, so knowing i could count on the family to put us up and have a much needed shower we headed here. A few beers and roll ups later we decided that the big sprawling colliery we had been staring at for the last few hours while drinking needed to be done.
       
      Gaining access to the site was so very simple, however we soon saw a few vehicles on site and heard the beautiful sound of ravages barking in the distance. Not easily put off, we pressed further into the huge site. Looking round the corner of the explosives store building, a white 4x4 was parked up with a man slumped behind the wheel and a dog in there too. Thinking that was it we retreated back round the corner listening to the possessed dog go full retard, barking away. Thankfully the bloke was having a nap until his dog woke him up, we hid up watching mr security wake up and go for a drive as if he was doing his job properly. Leaving us to venture deeper onto the site.
       
      Enough waffle, on with the pictures... hours spent in here ducking and diving from at least 3 security vehicles, and hounds, cracking fun.
       

       
       

       
       

       
       

       
       

       
       

       
       

       
       

       
       

       
       
      Unfortunately didnt have time to collect the crew hoodies we had ordered for the group shot  so none of them this time.
       
      Cheers for looking..

      Family holiday, got a day to myself with the camera
      This place was huge and I know I only covered 40% ish, the site covers a few miles and in 35 degree heat I felt I had done enough in 3 hours, but maybe a return next year to cover the other bits.
      I honestly stripped this down from 70+ plus shots


      There was almost a higher ranking living area once passed the main gate


      the only real graffiti I saw


      old statue knocked down

      Outdoor bath for higher ranking personal

      Another checkpoint ?


      A very hot and long road to the rest of the base

      random buildings


      entrance to an underground area


      more underground entrances

      pitch black

      led to this

      directly beneath this


      Then I found the long tunnel !!!

      which became this, gotta say, I`m not a fan of underground and this was maybe 200m long with a few off shoots to the cliff sides






      up top I found this



      then the long walk back to the car
      Cheers

      Havent posted for what seems an eternity !
      So this was a trip to Bulgaria that 7 of us went on in March.
      Wont go into the history as its out there
      Small copy and paste from wiki
      Buzludzha is a historical peak in the Central Balkan Mountains, Bulgaria and is 1441 metres high (4728 ft). In 1868 it was the place of the final battle between Bulgarian rebels led by Hadji Dimitar and Stefan Karadzha and the Ottoman Empire.
      The Buzludzha Monument on the peak was built by the Bulgarian communist regime to commemorate the events in 1891 when the socialists led by Dimitar Blagoev assembled secretly in the area to form an organised socialist movement with the founding of the Bulgarian Social Democratic Party, a fore-runner of the Bulgarian Communist Party. The Monument was opened in 1981.No longer maintained by the Bulgarian government, it has fallen into disuse.
      The monument was built at a cost of 14 186 000 leva.
      Buzludzha can be reached by two side roads from the Shipka Pass either a 16 km (10 mi) road from Kazanlak or a 12 km (7 mi) road coming north from Gabrovo.
      Now the monument is abandoned and vandalised. As the roof of the building is heavily damaged, the main entrance of the building has been closed for the public. (cough cough)
      So as said 7 of us went, 2 traveled from Glasgow (got knows why Nikon came up here to fly down to Stansted lol) met another 4 in Stansted then our final party member met us in Plovdiv after travelling from Belgium.
      So many laughs had on this trip, ranging from 1 party member going missing at night, after getting bladdered and trying 4x4`s in the pitch black, to absolute nonsense conversations after too much cheap booze.
      For me it was what a trip is all about, fun fun fun and seeing and shooting a pretty cool place.
      We spent 3 days/2 nights at the base of the monument, personally only went up twice, but I know others done it many times at all times of the day and night.
      Anyways, mixed bag, in the order they were shot























      Not happy up here !!! 200ft pitch black climb then 100ft on see-thru ladders, anyone who knows me knows I dont do heights !!
      Pretty chuffed I got to the top tbh, but bob hope I was going out on the ledge !!





      cheers
      The Baron
