    Automotive Plant Oct 2016

    The final stop on my most recent American adventure, and an absolute beast. This is in the top five, maybe three, biggest locations I have ever explored. It's probably the second largest industrial abandonment in America, after the Packard Plant in Detroit. Over two million square feet of...

    Big D Power Station Oct 2016

    The penultimate stop on my last adventure and what better way to end than with a couple more big industrial behemoths. This is one of four abandoned power stations in this particular city, but sadly the only one currently accessible. Two are completely sealed and the other one, which sits at #1...

    St. Lego's Church Oct 2016

    Getting into the tail end of my last Stateside trip now - and by rights it wouldn't be one of my adventures if I didn't get to explore at least one church. In a country rapdily losing it's faith there are a massive amount of shuttered churches for the taking of all architectural styles and...

    The Second Empire Gym - Sept 2016

    You know when you get that urge to do something impulsive and outlandish? Yeah that happened to me during my time in America. I'm not usually one for solo jaunts, least of all in a city I am still largely a stranger to, least of all when it also involves going some way into a pretty rough...

    The Pigeon School - Sept 2016

    Anyone who has known me knows I have a love of abandoned schools, and especially big American ones which are completely different to the ones found over here. I was given the opportunity to visit one recently and jumped at the chance although having not heard of the place before or seen any...

    Hillside Sanatorium - Sept 2016

    Like at home in the UK, and on the continent, there are certain locations in the USA which are true longstanding icons of urban exploration. Places that are instantly recognisable to everyone connected with the hobby, to remarks such as 'oh it's THAT place' etc etc.   One of these such places...

    Possum State School - Sept 2016

    Having had my fill of industrial goodness on day one it was time to move on to something completely different on day two...   State Schools are a very American thing, kind of halfway between a school and an asylum and, as the name suggests, owned and run by the State they are located in. They...

    Lack O' Steel - Sept 2016

    This was the final location visited during an awesome day of exploring heavy industry, and what a place.   The steelworks here was once one of the largest in the world, employing around 20,000 workers in it's prime. It's closure in 1982 arguably kickstarted the declining fortunes of the local...

    Return to Kolene Steelworks - USA - Sept 2016

    This was one of three former steel manufacturing plants I visited on my trip, this is one I had already visited in May but jumped at the chance to go back and shoot for a couple of hours whilst waiting for another friend to get off work. This place is one of the north-eastern United States most...

    Coal Conveyor, Sept 2016

    I'm back from another one of my jaunts across the Atlantic, in fact I'm so soon back I still haven't recovered from the epic that was the last day coupled with jumping straight onto a six and a half hour flight smelling like something dragged out of hell itself, with no sleep in the last 30 hour...

    Mr Bubbles State Hospital

    I finally got to see this small hospital after 5 yrs of wanting to do so. I'd tried once in the past when I lived further away but security was sitting at the gate. I never tried again till recently when a very nice new friend took me there after he was successful seeing it :D  Whole set here...

    Abandoned Canned Heat House - July 2016

    I've read conflicting reports on the history on this particular house. It is said that the property once belonged to Bob "The Bear" Hite, the lead singer of Canned Heat, a band that became popular in the '60s. His band mates and other musicians visited frequently for jam sessions and parties.

    Abandoned Los Angeles Zoo - June 2016

    Hey Everyone, I just wanted to share my latest exploration with you all. I took a trip to the Abandoned Los Angeles Zoo which closed up business in 1966.  Be sure to take a look at the video and do a little research on the location as well. The history behind this place will shock you...

    Pigeon State Hospital May 2016

    So this is it. The last report from my fourth American adventure. I started with a bang and I simply had to go out with a bang visiting the largest site of the trip.   This asylum was at one time one of the largest in the USA, catering for almost 10,000 patients at it's peak capacity in the...

    A Couple of American Mansions

    This is my penultimate thread from my latest trip to America!   On the same hot muggy day we discovered the incredible drive-in theater and I nearly met my demise in the hotel resort we were on a then-fruitless search for delicious ice cream refreshments on the way home and after being very...

    Overbrook Asylum May 2016

    Construction of the Essex County Hospital Center, also known as Overbrook Asylum began at the end of the 19th Century. Over the next couple of decades it was expanded with more buildings added gradually as it grew into a large institution. It was so large it had it's own railway station on the...
