  1. The Ark Synagogue, Liverpool. Also known as Greenbank Synagogue. History - My visit - I visited this site recently with two friends that I run the facebook page 0151 Outdoors with, if you are on facebook, give us a like! Well, I dont really know if this can be classed as a report, haven't had too much luck on my first few explores, but I'm not letting that stop me. This time, I arrived on site, and took a few pictures of the exterior before two dodgy blokes of possibly eastern european descent came running around the corner, shouting about how the building is ''TOP SECRET'' They weren't too frightening, so I grabbed a few pictures as I walked off the grounds, the guy in the last picture told me as I was leaving, ''£10 pictures outside, £20 pictures inside'' but I think I'd rather try again in future, its part of the fun. I dont know how true it is, but apparently the building is now owned by a man from Pakistan, and a lot of bits from inside have been removed. Anyway, these are just a couple of the pictures I took of the exterior, shame I didnt get inside as it looks interesting on other peoples reports.
  2. They were ridiculous, told us that a lot of the stuff has actually been removed due to the current owner and then tried to charge us ??
  3. Who actually guards this place? I've been trying to gather up some information but, as we know, urbexers aren't too forthcoming ?
  4. Stunning building, great report. Its a shame it'll be converted, everything looks in rather good condition.
  5. My Visit - This one was quite fun, although there is not many items left to see, its a great walk under Liverpool, with some nice stone and brickwork to see. We arrived quite early, and had absolutely no trouble finding and getting into the tunnel, the rest is best seen in pictures!
  6. HISTORY: Thanks for looking at my pictures, I hope you enjoyed them. Give my facebook page a like & follow if you want to see what else my friends and I get up too - 0151 Outdoors. E.
  7. Huge! Bit trigger happy too, just got a new camera! I was about to climb over some piled up s**t that was blocking the basement when I spotted two blokes in hi-vis with torches, so that called the end of my explore. I may have to get back just to see that. Any other current locations around Liverpool that you could recommend? I've got plans for a few already, but I only know of the 'main attractions'
  8. I wont bore you with too much history, this place has been done before, and has been done better than my attempt. I just want to share some of my stuff, and hopefully get to know some people on the forum as I am pretty new to urbex. HISTORY: St Joseph's College, Upholland is a former Roman Catholic seminary in Upholland, Lancashire, England. The foundation of the large building was laid in April 1880 and college was opened in 1883. The buildings have recently been deconsecrated. In 1986 the total number of students was down to 82, of whom only 54 were Church students, and it was no longer viable to educate them on the premises. From 1987 the remaining students attended St John Rigby College in nearby Orrell for their schooling, an arrangement that continued until the very last of these students left Upholland in 1992. My Version = I was planning on visiting Crank Caverns with a few friends to start our exploring adventures with an easy location, but on route, I found the College. We parked quite a bit away from the main road into the spot, so I dont even know what that side looks like, but I will be returning. We approached through the woods, down a public footpath and arrived at the amazing building. We spent around 15 minutes taking a few snaps, looking at possible entrance points, but by the time we made it around to the cemetary, a friendly security guard came around and informed us that we were trespassing and had to leave. We had a bit of a chat with the friendly bloke before heading off on our way with a bit more information. My friends and I also run a facebook page where we post all of our outdoorsy stuff, bikes, urbex, 4x4ing, anything really. https://www.facebook.com/0151outdoors/ Anyway, heres some pictures, if anyone here can shed some light on approaching this place with more chance of success, give me a message please.
  9. If anyone reads this who has exploring knowledge of Manchester, could you drop me a message about my next location.
  10. Well, heres another easy explore I done recently with a few friends. This is only the second location I've visited, so be gentle! I wont bore you with TOO much history, as this has been done numerous times, and I'm sure most of you are aware of this place or have visited yourself. CRANK CAVERNS, ST HELENS, MERSEYSIDE. There are also legends of vicious dwarves eating children, soldiers going into the mines with gunpowder, etc.. But now to the pictures. Sorry, not all the photos are in order, I had lots to do this morning and was just trying to get this uploaded. Hope you lot enjoy the photos anyway! E.
  11. Hey, fantastic photos! I seen this place online and have been researching it a while. It looks like a great explore. I know the main way to get into this place (thats plastered on youtube) but I was wondering if someone could advise me on a more discreet way inside? Thanks E.
  12. Getting inside was the easy bit, and it was a bit disappointing, im guessing most of the stuff has been removed already, but I still had to check it off my list. Thanks for the comment.

  14. Im originally from Lisburn, moved about 9 years ago to the mainland. I never got to explore this place, so i really enjoyed these amazing pictures!
  15. Hello! I'm from Belfast, based in Liverpool. I do quite a bit of travelling about the country and I've already done a few explorations, but haven't took a good camera. I've just been browsing the forum getting some tips and I'll upload my own stuff in the new year! ?
