    Good Morning from Sheffield.

    Hi everyone, I've been posting stuff on the facebook group sporadically for a while now and thought I should probably cave and sign up. I'm not going to bother you with all my old reports and I'm not sure if anyone on here will recognise my username but I've been knocking around in the usual...

    George Barnsley and Son's Toolworks, Sheffield, September 2013

    Visited solo. I'd wanted to do this the week before when I did the Courthouse but I was worn out after that so I knocked it back again. Having another free weekend to do something, I thought why not try this? So back over to Sheffield I went. And I'm glad I did! Looking at reports, nothing...

    Sheffield Courthouse, September 2013

    Visited solo. I'm really, really not used to solo exploring. I have a penchant for crumbling at the slightest hint of danger (security mostly), but I really didn't want to waste the little time I had to explore! So after a morning bimbling round scrapyards, I end up here. This one's probably...

One day I got thrown in the back of a van by my Aunt (as a word of warning, she moderates on here) and my ex wife, dazed and confused I was ordered to clamber into some old...
