    Dark School of Music - October 2015

    I have hardly any information about this former boarding school. Apparently it was an institute for boys only. The building is in a decaying state. Fortunately, the vandalism isn´t too bad so far. The size of this insitution almost kills you. It´s very emotional to explore this part of history...

    Battersea Power Station, London - October 2015

    A site that needs little introduction Battersea A Power Station was built in the 1930s, with Battersea B Power Station to the east in the 1950s. The two stations were built to an identical design, providing the long-recognized four-chimney layout. The station ceased generating electricity in...

    Leicester Square Crane, London - October 2015

    After a curry and some beers with mates I decided to go climb something on my way home, as you do. The first site was a fail so I headed for the nearest crane and ended up here. I've always wanted to get up above Leicester Square but the insane amount of police everywhere always put me off...

    Hotel B, Belgium - October 2014

    Another place I visited a year ago with Obscurity and 2 non members, an old hotel with a huge car lot and garage for repairs. Don't ask me why it's called Hotel B, I have no idea. Access was ridiculous, how nobody called the police on us is beyond me. Some nice features in this hotel and a few...

    Chernobyl, October 2013

    Following on from my Pripyat post, one of the other places on the mini tour was a visit to the Chernobyl power plant. I must admit that this was an extra, and to this day I am not sure that it was a good thing. But go I did. Outside the entrance to the power plant is the memorial to the...

So I checked it out and luckily it was posted on there. Terrys? I thought it was empty. I wasn't sure if the post was a bum steer the...

    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...

    Visited with some friends from the Netherlands at the end of October, we had planned to make a day of visiting HF4 but we were thwarted in our efforts to get into the main power station so we settled for the cooling towers at HF4 and IM (and a couple of other sites too). Both of these are huge...

    Sanatorium Du basil - October 2014

    After a long and bumpy ride (lowered car, which was terrible on the roads surrounding the sanatorium:D ) we finally arrived on location. While searching for an entrance we saw some fellow urbexers on top of the clock tower, I just knew i wanted a piece of that. :P 1. 2. 3. 4. 5...

    Chateau HB (BE) - October 2014

    Chateau HB I'm not sure if this place has a code name so I made one up! I'm also not really sure of the history of this place other than it seems to date from the late 18th century and has probably had extensions and additions over the years, and probably ended its useful life with a fire - as...

    When we arrived on this location we heard a lot of noise coming from inside the church, didn't know what to think of it so we slowly walked through the house towards the church. To discover the noise was comming from a generator. Turns out there were some people doing a photoshoot, with lights...

    Pritzer Fac, Belgium - October 2014

    Loved this place, failed at first attempt a couple of months back so was really happy to get inside on this trip. I don't know much about the history of the place other than it's an abandoned university with much grandeur going on inside. Massive thanks to Obscurity for letting me borrow his...
