    Great Britain Robin Park Buzz Bingo - Wigan - October 2020

    Robin Park Buzz Bingo There is hardly anything to write for this history for this location due to how new the build is.

    Great Britain Grand Theatre - Doncaster - Feb 20

    The Grand Theatre: Visited again with @Urbandoned and two non-members. This spot has been covered numerous times but with our recent theatre tour it was one we had to tick off the list. I won't go into loads of detail on the history etc as you've most likely read it or you can look on...

    Great Britain Hunters House - Northallerton - Jan 20

    Abandoned House: Despite being similarly titled to my previous report, this home was completely separate and had new things to find inside.

    Great Britain Holdings Country Pottery - Oswaldtwistle - Jan 20

    On one evening midweek we decided it would be good to get one last explore in, due to us not being able to get ou for the next few weeks. Nighttime explores are never our choice but when you can’t help but get out, you’ll take it over nothing. So a secluded countryside explore in the dark down...

    Great Britain Abandoned Houses - Northallerton - Jan 20

    I was unsure about posting this due to the lack of history on this place. However, I felt it would be nice to share the photos I got during my visit to these two abandoned homes. The explore was quite shocking, finding such an array of items left to decay. Despite that it made it even more...
