Hello again y'all. Now this one is really special.. After researching a lead, Andy de Kay and I were getting pretty excited about what we could potentially see.

Pretty relaxed explore, however we were threatened to have our cameras smashed up if we didn't delete all our photos.. "Format that camera or i'll format it with a rock!" Well.. good ol' card switcheroo..

Anyway.. SHOTS:

We found this sat upstairs, perhaps from a previous redevelopment scheme

We look further.. Through a door and it's pitch black. Andy finds a light switch and...

HOLY SH*T! :)

Wow that place looks awesome :comp: pretty sure it's illegal to make you delete your pics, although it doesn't sound like you were dealing with the most reasonable person/people :roll: Cheers for sharing it looks epic :thumb

Is it just me who want's to know more about the threats to format your camera with a rock, I'm guessing disgruntled owners or security?

Yeah I wondered about that now you mention it.

I have a mallet on my server work bench with "Universal BIOS reset" written on the handle, never heard of a reformatting rock though...

      this house always interested me..the yard was filled with junk..old cars..and other junk..it gave the appearence of being abandoned but someone clearly lived there

      the area became prime real estate..mcmansions went up and taxes went up..i knew this houses wouldent last....i went by and saw it was finally empty
      the 1st floor was a neat gloomy  house



      rooms that feel like a horror movie

      all the lights hung poorly..surpised there wasent a fir from them..



       

      see more of that in a bit

      upstairs'


      the upstairs was nthing but an attic...no bedrooms or bathroom..this was a single floor home..



      basement

      a wood burning heater...thats an old way to heat a house



      the last thing still hanging that shows the personality of the owner


      odd old stained glass

      not sure what that is...

      ..the dead and prarie home companion

      This place has been on the radar for a while now but never got the chance to properly take a look. The dome itself can be seen for quite a few miles across the surrounding areas. Not a great deal of information available other than it looks like some sort of water treatment site/reservoir possibly used by the MOD, given the land its situated on. It doesn't appear to be fully derelict either as you can still here the sound of running water and the grass seems to be trimmed.
       
      The explore went as planned, few dog walkers here and there, other than that spent a little while looking around.

      First things first - this place is a death-trap. Simple as that. And it's quite likely to be worse now than it was when I went. But as I have a bit of an obsession about redundant old cinemas and theatres I left all common sense at the entrance.
       
      The building still shows signs of its grand past but sadly any possibility of saving it looks pretty slim, although a Trust has been set up to try to preserve it and bring it back into use.
       
      The four-storey building, designed by G. B. Rawcliffe, opened in 1894 as a music hall, before being converted to a cinema in 1938. It was last used as a bingo hall in 1995.

      First vid upload for a while, although I have not stopped exploring.
       
      Should be more videos coming up soonish
       
      This gothic mansion was once owned by a doctor who released a mental health patient who sadly went on
      to stab an 11 yr old girl to death. I believe he was pretty much chased out of his home by locals (they may or may not of have had burning torches)
      Nice place though, there used to be more cars, but sadly there gone now.
       
      The car is a 1964 humber super snipe
       
      and yes I know I spelt doctor wrong on the vid title  god knows why
