Weird Urbex Occurrences

Recommended Posts

Howdy guys and girls.

Talk of the paranormal is usually ridiculed in these circles but have any of you experienced anything weird and creepy whilst on an explore?

The only creepy thing I can think of on any of my explores was an old brewery in Lancaster. There was me, Scrappy and BB mooching about. We entered the building near the roof and made our way down to the basement taking pics as we went. However, nearing the end of the explore we clearly heard footsteps on the floor above us. If I remember rightly we made sure we weren't followed in and we covered the access. So by rights, there was only us 3 in the building. It was enough to make me feel spooked and was quite happy to get out of there.

Really want to do that brewery! Probably bored anyone who's been exploring with me with this one but the very first time i got into St Josephs Orphanage & was pretty new to exploring, to my shame had been shown access by the local emo kids (hey i REALLY wanted to see this place). Went back late at night when they would of all been tucked up in bed & it involved dropping through a hole in the roof of what i presumed was some sort of boiler room or storeroom to find that the door in front of me was nailed shut from the side i was trying to open it from so found that pretty weird for a start as it meant whoever had nailed it shut would of had to exit from the ballache access that i had just entered from. Luckily there was a window thing (don't know if there is a technical name for it) above the door & was perched on top of there for a good 5 minutes trying to work out if i would be able to get back out & heard what at first sounded like a creaky wheelchair coming closer & then turned into some sort of wailing sound, needless to say i was out of there like a shot but later decided that it must of been a cat or something. Have heard plent other noises in that place but most could be explained away as 'just the wind' & none have been as unnerving as that. Interesting that it was in the nursing home bit that i haven't been able to access since...

The 1st explore I went on, I was on my own in an old asylum. I was leisurely exploring the place and all was quiet. I was aware of an active security 'team' so I had my ears open for them. Anyway as I went into a small-ish boiler/pipe room I clearly heard a door make a long creak open and then slam shut with a thud. Then I heard shuffling footsteps coming in my direction. I froze and hid behind the door waiting for the inevitable. I was playing out the scenario of being caught over in my head as the footsteps got louder and closer. As they neared the door I was hiding behind I held my breath and waited. The footsteps stopped right outside my door...I waited....and waited...eventually I poked my head around the corner of the door, still expecting security to be stood there with their arms folded waiting for me to appear....but there was nobody! The corridor was empty! I was out of that within 5 seconds!!

Haha just typing this here has made my heart start beating like mad!!

This place needs no intro! I was a tad reluctant to put this up, as paranormal stuff just don't cut the mustard with a lot of folk. It was just a normal day's exploring really. Armed with the usual gear....Camera, tripod, charged battery etc. We headed straight for the famous staircase.

1st shot of the day, and this is the original picture. The figure in shadow is actually the caretaker.... But It's what's behind him that freaked me out! Because whatever it is.... It wasn't there when I took the shot. And at this point my battery went dead

The following are the same shot but zoomed in, the quality deteriorates I'm afraid. It looks like an old man to me! Could this be the ghost of St Johns?

That is seriously creepy if it's as you say it is, almost along the lines of a 'too good to be true' photo.

When I was in Denbigh a few years ago a group of six of us all witnessed a door swing open and closed by itself with no wind or other sources of drafts.I also heard the distinct sounds of boots walking down one of the corridors in West Park but there was nobody there. Also in West Park, in one of the wards at the back of the site (Huxley I think) I was stood at the nurses station looking out into it and saw the figure of an elderly woman stood in the doorway that lead to the toilet block, I was as shocked as anything and by the time I regained my composure she was gone.

All the hospitals and asylums I have visited I have only ever felt a sense of peace in, never anything bad. However two locations stand out as giving particularly bad vibes (or the heebie jeebies). The infamous animal testing labs of the British Industrial Biological Research Association in Carshalton which had a palpable dark 'energy' to it, I don't think I've ever explored somewhere that has made me feel quite so bad as that place, a truly oppressive atmosphere if there was ever proof needed for one. The other location that sprung to mind was the Al-Tech Steelworks in Albany, New York that I visited with a mate after dark last September. I don't know what it was in that place, but as soon as we got in we both agreed that we felt like 'something' didn't want us to be there - this also coming from my mate who had explored this place on numerous occasions at all times of day and night before. For whatever reason it gave off a seriously threatening atmosphere,the darkness inside the buildings seemed much more black than it should have been and after about half an hour of wandering around getting ourselves disorientated we both agreed that we needed to get out of there. I'd happily go back in the daytime, but not at night again.

      Little house somewhere in Belgium. Seems there lived an 103 year old lady and after a fire on the upper floor she left the house. Her son still comes there every week to feed the cat.

      Hello everyone! 
      Some months ago I went on a trip to Serbia, and thanks to a member of this forum who gave me advice on some locations I was able to do some good urbex in the meantime!
      Here is my report!
       
      (I tried my best searching for info on this place on Serbian websites with the help of Google translate, I hope this is accurate!  )
       

       
      This place is an abandoned luxury hotel in the Sumadija district, Serbia.
      The palace is very old: it was built between 1868 and 1872 by the prince Mihail Obrenovic, basing on architect Koste Shreplovic’s design.
       
      Originally built to be the Serbian National Assembly palace, it became the residence for the Obrenovic dynasty when the Serbian capital was moved from Kragujevac to Beograd.
       
      In 1903 a coup took place in Beograd: members of the Obrenovic family were either exiled or killed. But in the following years a railroad was built from the city to Beograd, so the palace became an hotel where all of those who travelled daily from the capital would stay.
       
      In 1964 the hotel was sold to a Serbian company, which bankrupted in the early 2000s.
      In October of 2005 it became property of the government, which tried to sell it but without success. Nowadays it still lays abandoned.
       


       
      The most amazing thing of this palace is the dancing hall: it's just too beautiful!
      One thing I have to point out is that, even if it has been abandoned since 2005, the building has very little traces of vandalism and it still is in a very good shape. This is exactly the opposite of what happens in Italy.
       

       
      Hope you liked my report guys! I'll see you in the next exploration!
