    Great Britain KINGSFORD FARM, ESSEX, MARCH 2021

    Good evening lads & lasses, We bumped into a little jewel again on the way back from our working trip. Could not really find anything online about this one but eitherway: The house speaks for itself! One of hose where you still get some goosebumps from the scent of history in the air... Last...

    St Georges Hospital, Hornchurch, Essex - April 2018

    A few photos from an exploring roadtrip of Essex and Kent with Mookster and our American explorer friend from back in April.  Another backlog, and another one where I managed to set my camera to JPEG. DOHHH!!!!  We clambered through some undergrowth and spent about 45 minutes inside.  We were...

    Witham Police Station, Essex - April 2018

    So on the same day that I first went to the Cop Shop in Brentwood, Essex, we decided to drive 20 miles to the disused Police Station in Witham.  It was OK, but probably not worth the extra driving.  It was more of a cottage design inside.  Quite a nice relaxed explore though and had water and...

    Severalls Hospital, Colchester, December 2015

    A little bit of history on another place I'm sure you've all seen plenty before -  The 300-acre (120 ha) site housed some 2000 patients and was based on the "Echelon plan" - a specific arrangement of wards, offices and services within easy reach of each other by a network of interconnecting...

    Rifle Church - Essex - June 2015

    This is a little church in Essex, has been redundant for quite some time. By the looks of it no one has been in there for a while as the dust was building up, to say my OCD was coming in to effect was a bit of an understatement, I just wanted to get my feather duster out and give it a polish up...

    Chemical Mill, Essex - April 2015

    This Mill was originally one of Essex’s watermills. It closed in 1926, when the town waterworks was built on the site. The waterworks became redundant in 1984 when the town was supplied from another pumping station further down the River. It has been sat alone and empty since 1984. Beautiful...

    County High - Essex

    In the heart of Essex this little school has gone unnoticed for some time. Done some research on it and found out that it is to be converted in to 11 luxury apartments. It opened in the early 1900's served as a school for some time before closing a while ago. It still has a lot of character. I...

    Bata shoe factory boiler house, Tilbury, Essex - December 2014

    Intro Maybe not worth a full report as it's very empty and it smelt quite bad... Still, I'll post this here with a bit of history. The place was once quite big and most buildings still remain including this one. The big three main front white buildings are in use at the bottom floor but the...

    Runwell Mental Hospital (Chapel of St Luke) - Runwell, Essex - Jan 2015

    History Pretty much everyone knows about Runwell or has at least heard of it so history probably isn’t really required but for parity’s sake… Runwell Hospital was a hospital in Essex operated by South Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust until its final closure on 23 April 2010...

    Old Odeon/Regal cinema, Colchester, Essex - October 2014

    Old Odeon/Regal cinema, Colchester, Essex - October 2014 Intro This had been on my list for too long, unsure why as from what I could see, it was absolutely trashed and pretty much covered in faeces. But despite this I persevered and I'm glad I did. Despite it being trashed and a bit of a...

    Severalls Asylum (Night) - January 2015 (Visited December 2014)

    Visited with Hamtagger and Session9 It's been a while, but I'm back and I'm staying here for good. 2015 should be full of awesome explores so I'll be posting a lot more often on here now. Severalls was one of the first places I ever wanted to do but due to distance it took a while to happen...

    Severalls Asylum at night, Colchester - (Visited Dec 14) Jan 2015

    Severalls Asylum - Midnight to Midday The Explore Collected Matt Inked from Lincoln train station and we made our way south for a quick recce before picking up Session9. Dined in the swankiest McDonalds I've ever been in, then headed for the old girl once again at about 11:45pm. The idea for...

    North weald redoubt, Essex - December 2014

    [CENTER]Intro Quick report from me, new gear, saw this, spent a few hours here. :) Hope everyone enjoys it, despite the blandness of it. :P : What's a redoubt? Thought I'd add this in as I didn't know what one was either before hand. Further reading: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redoubt...

    St. George's hospital revisit, Hornchurch, Essex - November 2014

    Intro Posted a report of the water tower earlier this year on another forum, I revisited with a friend who had never done Urban Exploring before and found it a lot of fun. I personally like doing a fully thorough report, so if you're easily bored, the photos are at the end . History The...

    Block 8 (Nurses' Home), Oldchurch Hospital, Romford, Essex - November 2014

    [CENTER]Intro I had seen this on 28DL in the past, back then, however, it looked like there wasn't much left of the site and the one block that remained seemed destined to be demolished before 2013 was over and so I looked over it. Then in early November whilst passing on the trains towards...

    POW Camp 116 (Farm) Hatfield Heath, Essex. November 2014

    Prisoner of War Camp 116 was set up in 1941 to house Italian prisoners of war, and from 1943-1944 it mainly held German and Austrian prisoners. Camp 116 (Mill Lane Camp, Hatfield Heath) conforms to the so-called ‘Standard’ layout. Seeing as this was only my 2nd time of going out I wasn't...

    Nortel Sports & Social Club, Harlow, Essex. Nov 2014

    This was my 1st ever explore. Not sure what the history of the building is or anything unfortunately as it was my wife that suggested going here together (she is so romantic lol). I'm sure this has been done soooooo many times by anyone that lives in the area but I'm really pleased at the...
