    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.

    Great Britain Bricket Wood Leisure Centre, St Albans, England - December 2018

    This one has a bit of a bittersweet ending for me really/.  It's practically on my doorstep but I didn't find out about it till about 2016/17 and it closed in 2010 with much disgust from the locals!   I had tried and failed it numerous times because of either filming taking place on site; or...

    Great Britain Crich Quarry, Derbyshire, England - December 2018

    The end was nigh for Mookster and my North Midlands Roadtrip back before Christmas.  Mookster remembered seeing this site when visiting the Crich Tramway Museum in the 1990s and had made it a goal to visit it when he discovered it had not been demolished, he previously thought it had. We parked...

    Great Britain The Valley Foundry - December 2018

    A rather apt explore after exploring an Iron Works earlier in the morning!  After Stanton, Mookster and I headed for this little industrial Gem and met Mattdonut and James Smith inside. It was a bit of a trek through some undergrowth and tumbledown sheds full of all the old moulds and casts...

    Great Britain Stanton Ironworks, Ilkestone - December 2018

    Another weekend, another backlog!  I really need to streamline my reporting process!  Part of a little day out with Mookster back before Christmas, we did this Tourist Trail steelworks; and it was a rather nice morning out; albeit a little smashed inside.  The works were originally established...

    Belgium L'Hopital tiktak - December 2018

    A n abandoned hospital that did not meet the new norms. It took some effort to gain access to this one. I  did this one alone so my senses were working overtime. First thing I heard was the tik tak of some mechanical clocks so i named this one l'hopital tiktak. Electricity is still on, sensors...

    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...

    Sutton Hospital Block B (The Old Bit) - Surrey - December 2017

    This one has been long in the making and a good way to end 2017. I've been to the newer bit more times than I care to admit, however the older bit had alluded me for a long time. After multiple visits and too many fails to count we finally managed it with a bit of good timing and dash of good...

    The Grove Air Raid Shelter - December 2017

    After a long drive stuck on the glorious M25 for hours on end, the Grove air raid shelters were nearby so took my chance for a quick solo mooch. I have to be honest, these have been on my list for quite some time but wondering around the tunnels the place became somewhat repetitive so I did not...

    The Dome (Water Treatment Site) December 2017

    This place has been on the radar for a while now but never got the chance to properly take a look. The dome itself can be seen for quite a few miles across the surrounding areas. Not a great deal of information available other than it looks like some sort of water treatment site/reservoir...

    France Hospital Plaza - december 2016

    This building used to be a monastery but in the first World War it was turned into an emergency hospital for soldiers who fought in the trenches. Many Belgian soldiers were brought into care here, which explains why the ' don't spit on the floor" sign is both in French and English. We came here...

    Germany Small Chapel - Visited in December '16

    The small chapel is idyllically situated on the hillside. Standing at the foot of the hill, the building is almost invisble. Thanks to the season, the knowing eye is able to spot the chapel between the sparse vegetation. Following up the slope for few minutes, a small weather-beaten wall...

    Pinner Caves, Crawshawbooth, December 2015

    Not much history other than it shut down back in the 1980's at some point.. Had fun in here very thankful I had someone with me who's been a few times before (none member). Had a blast working our way around all the paths and climbing under and over cave ins.. Love my first underground...
