We visited St John's Hospital in Lincolnshire on Sunday, here is our video. Although we were told the security at the hospital was extremely tight we didn't actually come across any security at all! They must have been having a day off lol.
A revisit @ The Christallerie didnt have much time first visit .........
If anyone can tell what the House Of Esher was going to be i would love to know visited with Critical Mass & Host
Cheers for looking Oldskool .........
West Park was a nice site, but every man and his dog knew about it and the same shots used to get taken time and again. Reaperman (of http://abandoned-britain.com/ ) and I decided to do a night visit at a time when the place was extremely popular, and use it more as an experimenting ground for natural and artificially lit shots. Our aim wasn't to cover much ground, but to take shots until they came out right!
It was a good experience and co-ordinating the lighting was good fun. Simply lit with torches and 2 coloured gels.
Came across this field of cars after a day of failed splores, i was chuffed to bits. There is a history behind it but I cant go into to much detail, but by the sounds of it, it was an obsession that ended a marriage.
It was a great mooch, loads and loads of cars, some older than others and none of them would ever pass a MOT again. But for me seeing Stasky and Hutch on the bus, made me a little bit happy!!

Thanks for looking x
This place is definately an oldie but a goodie. I recently came across an article about this place, only to discover it is now being sold as a half a million pound house! Personally I prefer how I found it....
The History -
Buckston Browne farm was built in 1931 by the Royal College of Surgeons as an animal testing and vivisection laboratory. The farm was stimulated by a gift from Sir George Buckston Browne F.R.C.S. and was later ‘modernised’ in the 1960s with new accommodation blocks, kitchen, laundry, operating theatres, operating microscopes, orthopaedic instruments, diathermy and portable X-ray units. Two large enclosed blocks of 20 animal pens were also added, suitable for dogs, pigs, goats, sheep and calves which were all tested on in the farm. The farm was used by a number of institutions who endorsed animal testing, but finally ceased experimentations after anti-vivisection raids in 1984.
The Explore -
We've all had days where all the planning, research and effort to get places falls to pieces and leaves you without one successful explore all day! This was the complete opposite, we descended upon Kent and had an amazing day visting many locations. This was by far the winner of the day. Despite the gruesome history of the place, the summer sun made it pleasant!
These cages did upset me quite a lot! I almost forgot what I was exploring till this point.
Not sure I want to know what this was....
Yours for half a million pounds!!
Thanks for looking guys!
