    RAF Coningsby Remote Weapons Store, Lincolnshire - February 2019

    On my way home from an overnight explore down south, it seemed a shame to waste the beautiful summer-like days we were having in mid-February, so I decided to stop off at RAF Coningsby's old weapons storage facility. It's not all that far from where I live, and I'd been meaning to take a look...

    Great Britain Adwy Deg North Wales February 2019

    known to explorers by its nick name! Adwy Deg; the fair retreat Life was hard for Welsh hill farmers; the nearest road to this property is a mile away; The date of the turnpike road newly-constructed between 1777 and 1823 supports the suggestion that the settlement of this central area is...

    Italy Former textile factory N., February 2019

    This is a very popular textile factory in Italy. It is very big, it even has a power plant which used to power the whole structure when it was functioning. We stayed there for like 4 hours and managed to explore maybe only 2/3 of the place (or even less)... Entering there was tricky because all...

    Great Britain Bulstrode Park - Gerrards Cross - February 2019

    Visited here twice over the span of a week, once with the SO, and the second with mookster,Brewtal, Zotez and obscurity. It's a big place and I didn't realise how much I'd missed till the second visit! History Bulstrode house (listed grade II) lies towards the centre of the park. Rebuilt...

    Taiwan Various sites, Taiwan July 2018 - February 2019

    大家好! My oh my, how long has it been since I posted a report? Exploring has become a low priority for me ever since I left the UK, even if I've always kept tabs on new sites shared here and on social media. Truth be told learning Mandarin and my lady have taken a much bigger priority in recent...

    St Josephs Orphanage - February & March 2018

    St Josephs Orphanage / Mount Street Hospital   Even though this location has already been done by every man and his dog, I decided to chuck a quick report up anyway. As stated above in the title of my report, this one features photographs taken mostly on the first visit and one taken on another...

    Campina Youth House - February 2018

    Campina Youth House Haven't seen this one posted anywhere so I decided to chuck a quick report up on it. I would say this particular location could be described as disused rather than abandoned, as it looked like there was redevelopment work going on when we arrived. Hence why it is so nice and...

    Italy Villa Olympia, Italy - February 2018

    This was the first stop in Italy with Elliot & @shaddam last month. I don't know any history unfortunately but it's a stunning building and I wouldn't mind living in it! I normally write a lot more than this but I'm not sure what else to say. Oh, we went for a pizza afterwards. Pics: 1...

    Manicomio di V, Italy - February 2018

    Yep, it's another Italian asylum! Last one from this trip. We changed our plans at the last minute to check on this instead of visiting one of the better known spots. It was a bit of a gamble as we had no info and it was going to be the last explore of the trip, but it could be epic. I'm glad we...

    Manicomio di R, Italy - February 2018

    This had been on my to-do list for some time having seen previous reports. I suppose for that reason it was more of a pilgrimage than an explore but well enjoyable nonetheless. We made a right meal of getting in here but it was necessary with the amount of activity near where we wanted to be...

    Manicomio Di Vercelli, Italy - February 2018

    This was a fun one. A small part of the hospital is still in use so there were lots of vehicles coming and going. Security kept driving up and down the main road as well like it was groundhog day so we had to stay on our toes. The hospital was built in 1930 for the treatment of people suffering...

    Manchesters Victoria Arches - February 2018

    Hey, guys, this is a video from my recent exploration of Manchester's Victoria Arches. Unfortunately, we were caught entering and as I couldn't resist taking a peak I went it alone. However, we will be back to make a proper video report on the place. I was absolutely gutted to not get a proper...

    Bretton Hall - Wakefield - February 2018

    Explore   This was a fairly easy explore as these buildings are not as protected as the main college and the park relies on tourists to inform security about any vandals. The gymnasium was the hardest to get into as we had to avoid getting seen by any onlookers. So going at a later time of...
