Actual Urbex Dreams

Recommended Posts

Have any of you had dreams about abandoned places?

The other night I had a dream about Fletchers Paper Mill although bits of it obviously weren't, and just last night I had a dream about Hartford Mill which in my dream had a load of hi-vis wearing pikeys stood on the roof of a small building next to it which was heavily on fire :)

I guess my subconscious is telling me I need to get out a bit more!

Hi-vis wearing pikie arsonists - sounds like a weird dream. What would psychoanalysis reveal in that one? :D :D

Personally I can't remember any exploring dreams to tell.

On a similar note a weird thing happened a few years ago when we went on two-week exploring road trip. We were getting up at 4am everyday and there was no early nights as we had so much driving to do. So it was a case of catching a nap wherever possible during the day, on the floor of a derp, on a rusty bed frame in the old hospitals etc. It got so the lines between consciousness and unconsciousness got blurry, and toward the end of the trip and for two weeks after I started having waking dreams. So I'd 'wake up' in the hotel room - or later my bedroom - and for about half a minute or so I'd think I was in a derelict building as all the paint on the walls was peeling and there were cobwebs everywhere etc. It was more of a nightmare really if you can imagine waking up in the near pitch-dark in a derp - you don't know where you are or who else is in there with you! Needless to say I was quite glad when they stopped! :(

All the time, Joeys (well a weird version of Joeys where the layout is different) pops up quite a lot in my dreams as well as other random ruins, also had a dream about exploring the building where one of my mates currently works (in the dream it was derelict). Glad i'm not the only one :)

I had one recently, where I was exploring what was apparently a foundry in France, but when we got inside it was pitch black, and everything was totally overgrown and there was almost like a forest inside, and it had it's own ecosystem so was raining inside the building. Very odd.

      Hiya!

      My name is Faith- I have a website/blog for my adventures around the world. Lots of urbex, Mad Max/postapocalyptic festivals like Wasteland Weekend, ghost towns, legends etc. I'm based in England but travel all over the place and I'm always looking to team up with fellow explorers.

      Did you ever went to an Island full of creepy dolls??? NO??? Let me take you with you!
       
      On my holiday in December 2017 to Mexico I heard about this place so I had to go. There is no holiday without finding some decayed stuff!
       
      The story goes as followed:
       
      The guy who lives on this Island found a girl who was drowned around the island. He also found a doll floating nearby and, assuming it belonged to the deceased girl so he hung it on a tree as a sign of respect. After he did that he heard whispers and foodsteps around his hut where he lived. He started to collect and hang more and more old dolls to calm down the spirit of the drowned girl. In 2001 the owner of the Island died and was found on the same spot where the girl was found.
       
      When I wanted to go to this place I had to find someone who wanted to  bring me there because it was hard to reach according to people around there because of latest hurricanes and earthquakes . After a lot of negotiations I found someone with a little boat to go there and to be honest it was worth the whole trip!!

      Kastix Ltd
       

       
      History
       
      Built in 1947 as the new drill hall for the 2nd Volunteer Battalion West Riding Regiment. Later used as the offices for Kastix, a textile company producing womenswear and children's clothing, which went in to receivership in 2001 with the loss of more than 50 jobs. Conversion plans There are currently plans to demolish the site to construct an Aldi supermarket.
       

       
      The exterior 
       
      Bit out of the way... but was in the area so decided to take a look. Its a fair size and considering it's had no owners since 2001 the condition of the place is pretty decent.  Stopping at the top of the road and checking for hostiles we decided to take a closer look. Theres lots of works adjacent and we attracted quite a few spectators as we scrambled through the fencing... moving in we could see there were a few CCTV cameras, rusty and outdated these were perhaps part of the security measures when the building was last working. Starting at the front and working our way to the back (drawn quite a crowd at this point) we were intrigued to find an entry point. The exterior is fitting with the period and will be a shame when the building is demolished to make way for the plastic prefabs that are ALDI. Most of the windows and doors are original but it looks like efforts were made to  modernise the building at some point. 
      Scaling the roof... checking for open doors windows (bingo).. we were in. 
       

       

       

       

       

       
      The interior 
       
      Making our way through a small room and then into a much larger hall we were a little taken back by the size of the building... Strewn garments, hangers and palettes of junk made us a little unsettled and it was almost like a worker was about to appear and escort us off the premises (or maybe try sell us some clothing). Making our way past the left overs we headed to the doors littered across the back of the building. slowly working through the rooms we came to the main stairwell... making our way to the upper floors...we made our way through the many offices, empty and miscellaneous rooms ending in an area with some pretty creepy looking changing rooms. Overall theres a few cool bits and in our opinion its worth documenting if not for the very creepy mannequins, the overall condition or the asthetics the sheer amount of stuff left over from previous occupiers. There also an attic area which was a little difficult to reach but it did look like someone had gone to the effort to investigate.

      Villa Scorpio
       
      History
       
      Unfortunately I couldn't find a great deal of history surrounding this location but from what I have gathered it was built at some point during the late 19th century. The former occupier owned a large cement factory in the same town. I would imagine the family were quite well off, as it was very grand and exquisite building. The design of the villa shared various similarities with the Art Nouveau style of architecture. Featuring a stunning staircase, a beautiful skylight and an decorative greenhouse.
       
      Our visit

      Visited with @darbians and @vampiricsquid on our tour of Italy last summer. As soon as we arrived outside, we knew it was going to be a good explore. Hope you enjoy my photos!

      History
       
      Officially opened by the Earl of Scarborough in 1957, it was built the year before for £350,000 as headquarters for Leeds chemicals and dyestuffs firm Brotherton and Co and was at the heart of a new business area at the Westgate end of The Headrow. It was named in recognition of the famous Leeds city benefactor family, after the Brotherton Library and Collection at Leeds University, the Charles Brotherton engineering and chemical laboratory, the Brotherton Wing at the Leeds General Infirmary and the Brotherton Charity Trust.

      It was dubbed as the design of the future with the “latest external and internal structural techniques, automatic ventilation and ceiling heating”. Its ceilings were reported to be “acoustically perfect”, and its floors covered in highly-polished parquet. It was in 1965 – long before the merging of local police forces and the establishment of the current West Yorkshire force, that the old Leeds City Police took over part of the building and ultimately established its administrative headquarters there.

      In addition to the then Chief Constable and his Assistant Chief, numerous other police departments have been based at Brotherton House over the decades including senior CID, Special Branch, Fraud Squad, Regional Crime Squad, Firearms Registry, Aliens Department, Force Prosecutions, Special Constabulary, Training, Photographic and Fingerprint departments, the then so-called Policewomen’s Department, Pay and Accounts. Most notable investigations to have been carried out at Brotherton house was the notorious "Ripper squad" which was applied to a group of investigators and was the term used by the media for the investigation into the Yorkshire Ripper murders. Including George Oldfield the man in charge of the investigation. Today, the building – which has largely been vacated – overlooks the Leeds Inner Ring Road and is described by its agents as a “substantial high-profile office building with a significant presence.”

      A day out in Leeds, driving on the ring road I noticed a building covered in green fabric... on closer inspection we found out by locals telling us that the building was abandon. Mostly the building is in good condition with a large amount of original features untouched.. the main hall is really something with original parquet flooring and a grand stair case leading into the main building. Corridors lead to open staircases on both sides of the building which offer access to the buildings six floors including rooftop.
