    Germany Zeche HR - May 2019

    Before heading to this colliery, we had been viewing photos of the recent demolition. Images of headstocks lying crumpled on the ground didn't exactly give us much hope, but without any other options until much later in the day, we headed on to see if there was at least a scrap of something nice...

    Austria Diesel Centrale, Austria - June 2018

    Visited this one with @AndyK! and @darbians as the first real stop on a big week-long derp bonanza of some sort, after two fails the day before this (after a 12+ hour drive).  We had checked it out the night before, without much luck, so as it was getting late, and we were all suffering massive...

    Germany Peppermint Powerplant - April 2017

    Peppermint Powerplant -  The plant was purpose built to aid a neighboring paper mill, which closed at the same time as the power plant. It contains a single Siemens set, which looks great in peppermint green. This was a fairly quick walk around because the place is so small, I didn't even...

    North Staffordshire Royal Infirmary

    A Little History - The NSRIs roots go back to a dispensary which opened in 1804, the first public hospital in North Staffordshire. The dispensary allowed sick patients to get diagnosis and treatment, and provided vaccination for smallpox, eventually the hospital grew to facilitate fever...

    Power Plant X, Luxembourg - April 2017

    These two old power stations sit on the edge of a live steelworks site. There is some really impressive old industry to see here, including a massive old gas engine hall which still contains one huge engine, which was actually the biggest of its kind in the world.  All that's left of the other...

    France Chateau Stromae - April 2017

    Another tasty french chateau today. Really enjoyed this place, and I had wanted to go back here for a while as last year we were only able to access one room :( It's a bit of an interesting one, as each room seems to be set in a different style from one another, and this provides for an...

    France Chateau Sarco - April 2017

    First report from the latest trip abroad! This old mansion sits in a small village, the gates are wide open and the locals don't seem to even care about it. The highlight here was definitely the grand entrance hall, surrounded by pillars, red carpet, grand staircase, and a lumiere-esque balcony...

    France Chateau Poseidon - May 2015

    Another backlog report here. Visited with @AndyK! and @Jamie_P in the pouring rain and as night was approaching, so the photos were a little difficult to process.  Quite a nice castle though, completely white on the outside with four massive turrets. Inside there isn't much left aside from some...

    Belgium "Little Miracles", Belgium - May 2015 (Graphic)

    I have held back on posting this place for quite a while, but it seems everyone knows about it now and all of the contents of these rooms has since been removed.  This one may be quite graphic or disturbing for some, and I understand that.  These were found inside a live university building...

    Black Turbines - April 2015

    This small hydroelectric power station originally powered the neighboring Crespi textiles factory that closed some time ago. Before we came here we were aware that the building was possibly alarmed, but determined to see the industrial deliciousness inside, we carried on.    On our approach...

    Maiden Law Mortuary, April 2016.

    Visited this one a year ago on the way to Scotland with @AndyK! The mortuary sits just on the edge of the Maiden Law hospital site, where there a few other derpy looking buildings and a live nursing home at the back of the site.  Not really a lot to say about this one. It's a pretty nice...

    France Chapelle des Pelotes - May '16

    Chapelle des Pelotes   Visited this one with @AndyK! and @Jamie_P. First location on our long and tiring France trip which involved around 38 hours of driving and forcing our eyes open, along with 7 hours of sleeping, Win! This chapel was part of an old seminary, which also looked great,but...

    Germany (Permission Visit) Schloss V a.ka. Piano Castle - May 2015

    On the second day of our three day Germany trip last year, we decided we'd hit this castle after seeing a few friends photos online. We were hoping to turn up and bump into someone and ask to take some photos, but it had turned out there was already a tour organised for some other photographers...

    Kraftwerk V, April 2015

    Hey OS. Been meaning to get this one up for a while. Visited on a long weekend away with AndyK, Vals Dark Room and Robin Decay. After seeing a few pictures pop up we thought it was time to go and capture it ourselves, and who doesn't enjoy a bit of tourbex when they're abroad? :) The turbine...

    Terry's Chocolate Revisit (October 2015)

    Thought it was worth going back here to get some new pictures. It was really worth it as some more decay has set in and my photography skills I feel have improved somewhat :) I was oop north hanging out with Jamie_P for a bit and we decided it'd be a good idea to go and get some explores done...

    Rainbow Church AKA Eastern Church - December 2014

    I'd forgotten about this set for quite a while :) First location on the big ass bergwerk trip. No history sadly, sometimes it's hard to get the information on these euro sites. Proper nice church though, it's a shame all the pews are smashed up. I have seen some pictures from 2013 and...

    Palace Casino - April 2015

    Another Italy noms report from me, this place is seriously a gem and it's a place that I had wanted to see for so long. It's last use I believe was as a casino/hotel sort of thing. There were signs of it once being a public tourist sort of place. There's some proper nice architecture in here...

    TG Green's Pottery - 2015

    Hey OS. This ones a pretty old UK location but it's still just as great, the decay and reclamation here is really what makes it, not to mention all of the stuff left behind. Visited on a few occasions with AndyK! and others. Photos: Not as well covered here as in other reports...

    Manoir DP - August 2015

    This ones a proper beauty. I'll be honest, the reason that this is currently uninhabited is because of an inheritance dispute, we were aware of this but did decide to visit and half of the places we visit are probably in this position. The house is pretty large and still choc full of interesting...

    Paragon Hotel, April 2015

    Italy noms. On arrival here we began to doubt if we'd gain entry as it looked like things had changed around the perimeter of the building. Our original access wasn't looking possible, but persistence paid off and we got to see this gigantic place :) The main highlight of the hotel is the...
