Hello and welcome to the forum

I'd suggest a few things;

You've found a few places already. How did you find these? Use the same technique.

Get involved through the forum. You'll learn a lot from that.

Use the search function. Again, you'll find a lot from that.

Welcome to OS!

For a start, a short tip to find abandoned places:
Use Google, for example, with appropriate keywords (abandoned / deserted / derelict / closed / disused ... house / hospital / factory / church / mansion / castle ...).
Google Earth and Streetview can also be helpful when searching. Broken roofs with holes in the satellite images or overgrown gardens and boarded-up windows at streetview indicate abandoned places.
Of course, the search takes time, but that's part of the hobby. And after all it's always a sense of achievement when you've found a place by yourself.
