    The Old Farmhouse - Charnock Richard - Chorley - Lancashire

    The old abandoned farmhouse - Charnock Richard - Chorley - Feb 2018 One of my favourite explores so far this old abandoned farmhouse was brimming with history and fortunately, we made it just before the bulldozers did. I've seen plenty of footage of this old place on the web and it seems we...

    Great Britain Meadows Cottage (Lancashire) - May 2017

    I've code named this place as Meadows Cottage. This place is a hidden time capsule, with diaries and newspapers from as early as the 1940's. The most recent items had dates around the 1980's so it's hard to say how long this place has even been abandoned for. I actually explored this place back...

    St Joey's, Lancashire - July 2014

    This was my first proper explore back when i didn't have a decent camera. Went back a few times recently with a better camera once solo & twice with Ferox (nice one mate :thumb always feels better to have some company wandering about this place), first time we went it was too dark & he...

    The Empire, Burnley - March 14

    Hey again! Visited this one with Goldie, feel really lucky to have done it at this time because many people soon after found it sealed and completely inaccessible. Beauty of a place but at the same time a death trap.. Dry rot central! Only certain areas i could get to to take photos for fear of...

    An Orphanage in Lancashire, Nov 13.

    Right, well this place always took my fancy, so me and Cloaked Up paid a visit one Summer evening to fail horribly. He went back a few months later and got in, so armed with a new access point, I rocked up with Sonyes. I checked the new entry and decided it was a bit sketchy, so we went back to...

    Lancashire church that has been unused for a few years. There has been some signs of metal theft, but on the whole the interior was in pretty good condition.

    Hi all from Lancashire.

    Just dropping in to say hi, been viewing from afar for a while now, and finally got round to registering (thought I had done already) Doh! Have been using DP, but recently have noticed a lot of people switching to this. I am a relatively experienced explorer, and have met quite a few of other...

    Great Britain A Wizard Evening Out, Lancashire, June 2013

    It's been done a lot, but Me, Cloaked Up and True British Metal eventually made time in our schedules to get here. And blimey, they have been busy flogging the rides. Not much left at all, so we had a mooch and took some photos and left. Camelot Theme park is located in Chorley, Lancashire. The...

    Great Britain Church SS, Lancashire (2012), May 2013

    Have another one from the archives. It was a balmy August evening, wife and kids had gone out, nothing was stirring, not even a mouse. The architect employed by Mr. Maden Holt was E. Wyndham Tarn of London. The church, 120 ft. long and 53 ft. wide was built in the Early Pointed Gothic style...

    A Place to Drink and Dance, Lancashire, May 2013

    OK, first post, be nice. This place has been on my radar for a while now. Was bored one Thursday evening, so Mrs NNN told me to bugger off with the camera. Went out and as night fell, thought that I'd have a look at location access. Yep, was easily doable. Went back the next evening, got in...

    Whittingham Asylum, Lancashire - (May 2012) 2013

    Whittingham Hospital opened officially on 1st April 1873, built by bricks made on site, the source being what became to be known as the "duck pond" but referred to on maps as the "fish pond". The kiln for the manufacture of the bricks was situated, apparently, in what is known "Super's Hill...
