    Belgium Brains Tower - July 2018

    This was a really fun explore, even though it was quite challenging... It was challenging on a photography level, because the highest part of the tower was pitch black. Every photo we made up there had to be made with additional light. Luckily, to this end I always carry a small, but strong...

    Belgium Wet Dogs Plant - August 2018

    A friend asked me recently what my favorite location was so far. It would surely have to be one of the industrial sites I’ve visited and this one, an abandoned power plant, that was part of a large steel mill, was certainly among the top favorites! Even though the steel mill it was attached to...

    Great Britain Hougham Battery Dressing Station, 2018

    When you hit a dry spell exploring, or feel the need to just get out and do something, you can always rely on Dover providing for a good day. This is probably my 5th trip down to dover over the years and it has always provided something fun to do! I can remember being told about Hougham years...

    Replacing a former site to the west this cement works started to mine and produce cement products between 1918 and 1927.  The works used a Light Railway system to transport materials from the quarry to the wash mill and main works. Instead of using vehicles. Operating up to 2008 the works were...

    Great Britain Haile Sand Fort - Humber Estuary - September 2018

    The Sieging of the Forts - Part One - Haile Sand Fort - September 2018 I'd like to say that I'm never quite sure how I end up on such crazy escapades, but the truth is I'm married to Bigjobs, so crazy escapades suddenly being sprung on me shouldn't come as any surprise. This little adventure...

    Belgium Usine Skeleton (Jul. 2018)

    In this former factory building, the famous StreetArt artist ROA has created some great graffiti. The outbuildings have already been demolished and apartments have been built there. So it's only a matter of time until this location disappears.

    Albania Albanian Road Trip - November 2018

    Great Britain Clypse Lodge, Isle of Man - 2018

    Visited with 3 non members not really knowing much about the place other than it looked pretty cool from the outside. Damp and water damage had done a pretty good job on the place but it was still well worth visiting and the start of an amazing day.  History Can't really find much on this...

    George AFB USAF Hospital - December 2018

    Alright, this is my first post on here but I will get right to it. This hospital is trashed beyond belief but was still fun to explore. It was shut down in 1992 after the USAF pulled out of George AFB following the end of the cold war. These pictures were taken in December of 2018.

    Belgium Maison Martini (Sep. 2018)

    In a small Belgian village is this house on the roadside. There are still a few things that are worth being photographed. In the meantime it should not look like the pictures anymore .
