Passenger numbers fell after...

    Royal Military Academy, Woolwich, London - June 2014

    I came here with Elliot5200, Gabe and Indecisive Moment. The buildings have beautiful exteriors and although the contents have mostly been removed there are still many features to admire. The staircase in particular was stunning and the military records library contained beautiful mahogany...

    Gas Holder 13, Old Kent Rd, South London - June 2014

    Battersea Power Station, London - April 2014

    The Explore It doesn't get much more iconic than Battersea Power station. I visited twice with Sentinel, we had a feeling this would be a tricky place to conquer and we weren't wrong. On our first visit we encountered various obstacles and at points we nearly gave up on both control rooms but...

    Millenium Mills, London, April 14

    This site has done the rounds in the last few weeks, so I'm not going to go into boring details about the place. Definitely the biggest and best playground I've been to yet. A return is very likely. Visited with Miss.Anthrope and Mulman13. I'll try and avoid the common pics that everyone has...

    St Clement's Hospital - Bow, East London - March 2014

    The Visit This was a great day out with Sentinel, filled with comedy moments, aggressive pigeons, a police helicopter, and a location which was far better than expected. Thanks to sentinel for always being up for a laugh in any given situation, lending me his wide angle lens on the odd...
