    Ukraine Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station, Ukraine - October 2019

    It's not every day you get to visit a nuclear power station, especially one of such notoriety as this! I'd visited the exclusion zone 5 or so years ago, but at that time we were not permitted access into the plant itself, so when the opportunity to have a look inside, including the rarely seen...

    RAF Coningsby Remote Weapons Store, Lincolnshire - February 2019

    On my way home from an overnight explore down south, it seemed a shame to waste the beautiful summer-like days we were having in mid-February, so I decided to stop off at RAF Coningsby's old weapons storage facility. It's not all that far from where I live, and I'd been meaning to take a look...

    RAF/USAF Bentwaters, Suffolk - December 2018

    This turned out to be a good day out with @SpiderMonkey and Exxperious.  This is a big site, by far the largest RAF base I've explored in terms of area covered, so we spent the whole day looking around it.  History of RAF Bentwaters RAF Bentwaters is a former Royal Air Force station in...

    Great Britain HM Prison Holloway, London - August 2018

    HMP Holloway was the largest women’s only prison in Europe until its closure in 2016. Rebuilt between 1971 to 1985, the prison's design was intended to produce an atmosphere more like a hospital than a prison. This design was recognised as a failure in the 1980s as its lack of traditional wings...

    Great Britain Winter Gardens, Great Yarmouth - September 2018

    Great Yarmouth, or more accurately just Yarmouth is a typically tacky seaside town with mile upon mile of the stereotypical kind of tat and tasteless amusement arcades you only find on the shorelines of England. The kind of establishments that have lightweight wooden chairs that only the elderly...

    France Florange Steel Works / HFX, France - June 2017

    I remember visiting the "Bureau Central" a fair few years ago and noticing the massive steel works next door that the offices were once the headquarters for. The entire works seemed to be abandoned, although the old office block had clearly been out of use for a lot longer. We added it to the...

    Great Britain Old Royal High School / New Parliament House, Edinburgh - Feb 2018

    We had no idea how we would get on here. After driving through the night and arriving in the early hours, our entry was just awful! As we sat in the freezing cold, and the light started to appear at the windows, we could see it was worth the effort. Visited with @SpiderMonkey, obvs! History...

    Pyestock Anechoic Facility - August 2017

    The last piece of Pye. I’m sure everyone who visited Pyestock before it was demolished will remember the Anechoic Facility, that one last bit of the puzzle that couldn’t be visited. The blue-tailed building was still in use long after the demolition of the rest of the site, and is the only...

    Battenhall Mount, Former St Mary’s Convent School, Worcester - February 2017

    Last month @SpiderMonkey and I were given the heads-up on this place and after a quick Google we decided to head down to Worcester at the next available opportunity. We noticed a few people had tried before, only to find active security scuppering their success, so we were slightly apprehensive...
