    France Florange Steel Works / HFX, France - June 2017

    I remember visiting the "Bureau Central" a fair few years ago and noticing the massive steel works next door that the offices were once the headquarters for. The entire works seemed to be abandoned, although the old office block had clearly been out of use for a lot longer. We added it to the...

    Great Britain Britannia Works (WeldMech), Osset, Yorkshire - Feb 2018.

    Not much online about this one, it used to be a smelting yard which also carried out other work such as Automotive and presumably welding of sorts.   A nice little mooch for 45 mins or so.  Its had a recent fire, unfortunately destroying quite a rare model of Datsun stored inside.   Visited...

    Octel Bromine Works, Anglesey, January 2017

    This is a spectacular location for sure, surrounded by wonderful dramatic coastline. If you've got time I'd recommend bringing a packed lunch!! You could be watching the waves crash against the rugged cliffs, maybe if you're lucky you might spot a seal or a puffin passing by. Here in 1951...

    Tower Brick and Tile Company - Hampshire - December 2016

    Tower brick and tile company is a lovely little explore tucked away in the small village of Selborne. It's very isolated, with interruptions only from the occasional passing car and the swarming birds in the field opposite.  The History The Brick and Tiles company have been producing hand made...

    Uniqema Chemical Works, Bromborough - November 2015

    This was the second stop of out Sunday trip. I have to say I do love a good bit of industrial filth. History - Originally owned by Price's Patent Candle Company. In 1853, Palm oil was brought into Liverpool and so the company needed a site to use the palm oil closer to Liverpool than taking...

    Shougang Steel Works, Beijing - October 2015

    Part 1. The opportunity arose to visit a friend of mine living in Beijing and it didn't take long for this place to crop up in conversation. He'd heard rumours of people being allowed to walk freely through the site before but this wasn't the case when he'd tried. Security had apparently been...

    Titchener's Wire Works Sept 2015

    I don't think this place has had widespread exposure even on American explore sites before, it's kind of in an area which is often overlooked as far as explores go with almost nobody local on the scene. Titchener's is a large iron works company still operational in upstate New York to this day...

    I am not going to pretend i am some sort of expert on the working of such places and the facts of what it is exactly but what i do know is walking up the pipe i was met by about an inch of fat which disguised the fact there was shit floating around with the wet wipes and fanny plasters under...

    Low Bradfield water works - May 15

    Built in 1913 to treat water from the local reservoirs & closed in 1995, it's totally trashed & has turned in to something of a graffiti gallery for all the locals. There's a pretty vibrant graffiti scene in Sheffield, & anywhere as trashed as this is fair game, especially if you...
