  1. Same here, I knew it was there the whole time but never got round to it. Watch out though, there's a marshal post just off shot to the left of that last shot.. I doubt they are really concerned but never know being so close to the track. Wouldn't surprise me, which bit are you calling the back yard? The 2nd last shot is on the roof.
  2. Being a regular at the Nurburgring and this place being brought to my attention by a non explorer, the perfect opportunity after a day of storms arose! Putting this one off all week with temperatures reaching the 30s, the moment came on a somewhat stormy day to check this place out, taking full advantage of the slightly cooler – yet humid air. My first explore out of the UK too which made for something special, despite being a derp it was still something different and unique for myself in comparison to the UK. There’s not much left of the place and the history is scarce, however it looks as though work began rebuilding the place but the cost of development was a spanner in the works. The basement also contained a septic tank which is no longer allowed in the region, combining that with the nearest sewer being some distance away making development even more expensive.
  3. It’s been a while for various reasons but I am back and hitting the “move along, nothing to see here” central resource library… no seriously, nothing to see here. So after a brief chat with who turned out to be a long time reader and follower through instagram, we chose a spot to meet and hit the central resource library. Now to be honest, I was pre warned over a year ago that this place is absolutely trashed and I can confirm exactly that but it’s one I can now tick off the list. There’s not much to see, unless smashed windows and terrible graffiti is your thing so there is a lack of photos and hardly warranting a report, but here we go anyway! History wise? It’s a library… it closed and moved to a new location, that’s pretty much all I can say!
  4. After a long drive stuck on the glorious M25 for hours on end, the Grove air raid shelters were nearby so took my chance for a quick solo mooch. I have to be honest, these have been on my list for quite some time but wondering around the tunnels the place became somewhat repetitive so I did not walk as far down the shelters as I could as they felt almost endless. None the less, it was great to finally see the shelter and a nice surprise to see graffiti at a minimum, despite nothing other than broken chairs, rusty buckets and a lot of spiders within the shelter.
  5. No way! I was there only 2 weeks ago and didn't come across them! I tried every bit possible apart from the main huger bunker.
  6. Another location that’s been on the list of places to visit for the last few years checked off and completed! Explored with the one and only RelictaSpiritus, and bumping into Tiny Urban Exploration and some new explorers. Making this the second location of the day with rapidly deteriorating weather and light conditions, we made our way through the various live fire and warning signs to find one of the largest collections of rusted machinery I had ever set upon exploring. Interestingly, I always had this place down as a military vehicle dump given its ex RAF location, however despite the odd military vehicle I would have said it’s more of a digger dump than anything. Making our way through the dismal wind and rain, trying to dry my camera lens on any last remaining dry part of my t-shirt and spotting who later turned out to be Tiny Urban Exploration in the distance the far opposite end of the runway, the time came to vacate the site and dry off. That’s where I would say things became interesting, after opting for the quick route out back towards the main gate. Just as we approach the gates, a car comes flying towards us with the passenger door already open in some sort of dramatic attempt to appear intimidating. The car comes to a stop and out comes a rather angry short farmer type claiming we had set of numerous alarms and he had calls from the police saying he had a “break in”. Not feeling the mood for a debate, we simply apologised and were about to leave when he continues asking us what we were doing, to which we responded simply with “we went for a walk”, still clearly with camera tripods and all sorts on show. He continued pointing at his private sign and stating how we can’t simply walk where we want and how he doesn’t just walk around our back gardens, blatantly fishing for an argument. Feeling quite amused I took my phone out of my pocket and began recording, expecting things to escalate, however he took this as his cue to pipe down after a very long awkward 10 seconds of silence. I debate giving this a share or not! *insert amused emoji* The site is well worth a mooch about, perhaps in better weather conditions and if you’re prepared for a hilarious short farmer type. History as per, pinched from Wikipedia.
  7. Having taken a while out from urbexing while caught up in a few of life’s many distractions, but finally finding time to explore RAF Coningsby Weapons Store with RelictaSpirtus The day started with a last min jump out of bed, and hitting the roads for the long drive to the opposite end of the country armed with the very little knowledge we had picked up online with the odd pointer from a helpful follower. Upon arrival we quickly made our way inside, ignoring the MOD sign but watching our backs knowing the live RAF base was only a stone throw next door. The weapons store was packed full of bunkers including the odd few still full of generator trailers and a cool military green digger as well as the main bunker with the control room and some rather comfy *insert sarcastic face* looking metal bunk beds. There’s not much in the way of history on the site and it appears to be largely unreported on, so here’s the selection of images from the day.
  8. Military stuff or bunkers are high up the top of my explore list haha, anything else is generally because there's no military stuff I know if in the area haha Thanks mate Chances are I will be back at the location soon, more interior shots to come!
  9. Visiting a few times previously for non urbex related reasons, and touching on a few abandoned vehicles previously, little did I know the whole site is actually an old military themed action park. Waiting for the next opportunity to pop up and head over again, I took my chance, grabbed the camera and walked about. Even meeting someone on site who knew all about the place when it was open, quite handy to have a tour guide with history on the place! Turns out the whole place used to be an off road action park with climbing and paint balling sections. However considering majority of the buildings were porta cabins and majority of the race tracks were near enough non existent, my main interest was the abandoned vehicles and planes. There’s plenty of history about but to save reading numerous news articles…
  10. Knowing this place from years ago in the days it was active, and heading back from a days exploring in Norfolk, this was last on the list for myself and RelictaSpiritus. I had memories many moons ago meeting a girl who worked at Bambers Green, but unfortunately after speaking for many weeks I found her somewhat rude upon arrival. I couldn’t resist including that in the report… But anyway, the site was slowly but surely being reclaimed by nature but still had plenty to see so cracking on myself and Relicta made our way through the site. The highlight for myself was one of the two houses, simply a stunning property which leaves me surprised that such a place has been left to waste away. Even the houses past was clearly shown with equestrian type decoration in various places. Looking for the history on the location, the houses are actually up for sale which again leaves me somewhat perplexed as to how or why they haven’t yet sold. Unfortunately (my favourite report word), much of the remains worth seeing that I have seen on other reports appears to have now long gone. Onto the history and pictures now, along with a huge thanks to RelictaSpiritus for the day out! Fantastic day, even smashing my previous exploring record with 8 locations in one day.
  11. On the days list with the awesome RelictaSpiritus on a day trip to Norfolk is RNAS Pulham. Not much to report on this location as we actually didn’t find what we was looking for, however we did find some pretty cool old trucks, trailers and an old barn full of junk. Somewhat unexpected find, especially to find everything unlocked and open! With one giving myself the classic urbex fright of a pigeon flying towards me and the other more gruesome find of a dead animal of some sort inside the front of the truck… How does that even happen? But anyway, despite not even knowing if the pictures below are even related to the site, here’s the history once again shamelessly stolen from Wikipedia.
  12. Passing this place only a few months back and spotting the boarding on the windows, the perfect opportunity arose while on route back from Norfolk with RelictaSpiritus. After various other failed locations of the day, we were pleasantly surprised to find access to the church although a bit of a squeeze and a wedgie mid process. With the slight struggle we found ourselves inside pidgeon shit central, but despite that and the unfortunate damage done presumably by the locals. The church was still absolutely stunning. I would like to point out at this point, noting the news reports on the place and the lack of reports for quite some time. We are explorers, we came, took pictures and left again. It’s unfortunate we’re all tarred with the same brush.
  13. After alerting fellow explorer RelictaSpiritus to this place being nearby and a last minute scramble to organised a weekend trip, we were making our way over to Norfolk to visit HMP Blunderston Upon arrival we quickly saw this wasn’t going to be anything easy, after all it is designed to keep people in and everyone else out. Making our way around the front of the site and establishing the main entrances were locked tight or covered with a pile of rubble, we made our way round the perimeter fence with high hopes discovering nothing but the abandoned prison farm and somewhat high fences, unsurprisingly. Unfortunately defeated by the prison itself this time around, we did however bump into an ex prison warden who appeared just as we had lost hope. Again, unfortunately other than telling us he worked there for 25 years he would only say simply that there were many things we wouldn’t like to hear about that he had seen over those 25 years.
  14. Thanks all, going to revisit soon as I heard there's plenty more to see there haha!
  15. An accidental find while picking up car parts, the tail end of a plane caught my attention which was a good enough excuse for a mooch for me. Now it is debatable of abandoned or not as these are actually sitting at the entrance to an action park in Essex and the remains of the plane are sitting in what can only be described as a scrappie. However on closer inspection and checking over the action parks website, they are without a doubt abandoned or at least left by the action park owners to rust away. Unfortunately the truck looks as though it was used as a “show piece” at some stage of its life with a fake missile poking out the side, more disappointingly the whole interior had been removed. The tracked vehicles actually looked in better condition and what I could see through the dirty windows, the entire interiors were still intact. Downside is they were all locked. History on them? Well, I guess what you see below is what you get! If anyone can name the vehicles, even better!
