    Great Britain The Brewery - 19/09/2017

    Had ours eyes on the closure details of this place for a while and after months of waiting the place was winding down. So rather than wait for full closure we couldn't resist the urge to do a midnight explore, i'd never seen the workings of a brewery, normally just the end product.  Had such a...

    Great Britain Cautley House Christian Centre, Kent - 2017 & 2019

    Originally the Sea View Hotel, Cautley House is in every way as bland and and tacky as I expected. Built in 1888, it was extended to the east in 1906, became the Seabrook Hotel in the 1960s, Alfred’s Hotel in the 1980s and then a christian healing centre in around 1994. A care home was next on...

    Great Britain St Brigid's Asylum, November 2017

    Originally opened in 1833 as Connaght District Lunatic Asylum, later changing its name.  I found a very interesting write up on the below link, which is where I copied this - It was intended for the care of ‘curable lunatics’ and opened in a spirit of optimism with regard to its progressive...

    I had spent some time at Krakow with a lovely girl who appeared to still live with her ex-boyfriend. We decided to go on urban exploration together, except right before we went for dinner she got a call from that particular ex-boyfriend that he would kill himself if she would not return home. So...

    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...

    Belgium School of Decay - Aug. '17

    The old primary school has apparently been abandoned for quite some time. Crumbling plaster is leading the way. Decay as far as the eye can see. Now and then friendly yet strong reminders written somewhere: "Instortingsgevaar" (danger of collapse). Certain areas of the school building are...

    Lower Balls Mine, Nailsworth, Gloucestershire - Apr '17

    About 3 months after he fractured his spine, I went down to Nailsworth to visit my friend Oort. After a quick coffee and a catch up, we headed straight to the mine for Oort's first mooch after his accident. Not much online. The early history of these quarries is vague. Presumably quarrying of...
