    2 hours... seriously thats how long it took me to "sort things out" after this one, but more about that later. Visited here with @Down and beyond & THAT light as demonstrated in my first pic & what a laugh it turned out to be. Not much to tell about the history really, this is just another...

    Great Britain W H Shaw - Diggle - Dec 19

    Late to the party again here but when HughieD suggested popping in here it was a no brainer. combined with the fact that there was a possibility to meet the Godfather of Shaw's The Lone Ranger I was super excited. I wont go into the history as its been covered so many times, but if you want...

    Great Britain Lansdowne House - Knowle - Aug 20

    Ok a bit missleading that title, there is no house here but rather just barns & greenhouse. I actually pulled in this entrance to relieve myself when out the other month & thought whats this then! Im honestly baffled by whats happened here. The place was up for sale in 2014 for 2m & looked a...

    Great Britain GKN Factory - Birmingham - Oct 20

    Been a bit of talk on here lately so thought I would clarify from a visit last week. It is most definitely still accessible though Fri afternoon as we did is not the best time as its by no means discreet. made more difficult by cars pouring out of the neighbouring Balfour site which now...

    Great Britain Rampton Care Home - 2017 / 20

    Not much is known about this place. It seems its just another care home that closed down & is in a severe state of dilapidation. Most of the 1st floor is now inaccessible (which was on my early visit) & the building is literally splitting in two. However when my lad started photography GCSE &...

    Great Britain Ashby De La Zouch Tunnel - Jul 20

    Just a short one from here with not many pics (yeah u heard that right) dropped by here with my lad a few months back but didnt venture far in as it all seemed a bit the same tbh. The entrance is enchantingly overgrown & we did manage a bit of excitement being chased by a farmer when we left...
