  1. An independent members only club, dedicated to the working man who required a certain place for private meetings and events. This place has a little bit of everything. Dark, creepy unlit rooms, and rooms where light was still flourishing through the gaps and crevices. It has had many aliases since the buildings birth in the 1920's and had less than 300 members. Along the many years the workmens club was usually packed full of people, to the point you couldn't even move. Slowly but surely however the club started to lose money as members became scarce. It couldn't pay it's own way and since the number of members started dwindling, the Workmans club had to close its doors to the few remaining loyal members. Now sits empty and has done for more than 6 years now. Hopefully the building can see new life in the near future, but for me it was good to get an unusual view of the club. Cheers for looking!
  2. That's rather cool, mad to see the reels still there!
  3. As usual with our explores, they are never really a walk in the park. Access to the building itself was a challenge as the top area in which we needed to go was locked off completely. Thankfully, being quite adapted to the tasks at hand, we managed to ride on top of a lift to gain access to the building. Once inside it was clear that the building was in quite a bad state. Natural erosion has started eating away at the 60 year old building, and rust can be found throughout. Pigeons were lurking in the crevices and the whole place smelt of damp. The building was a former office block but has been abandoned for 20 or more years. Here is some of the best photos we managed to get. Thanks for looking!

  4. Very nice entry level/professional camera, enjoy
  5. @AndyK! Cheers mate, new to forums so I'll make sure to add a date next time!
  6. Hey @jones-y-gog What browser are you using? It seems to be all there on my side and on my phone too. I will look into as I have put another topic on high places, maybe it's put the pictures on there as they are the same.
  7. Here to show how the s7 camera can be a useful device for any explorer that's not willing to carry equipment to high places or hard to access areas. None of these are edited in any way. Enjoy C Particularly like this sign. It says the same thing either way.. <<<
  8. Thanks, still getting used to using this forum haha! And we went for an old school but reliable dslr nikon d3300. Entry level but does the job brilliantly. Quite pricey even second hand nowadays still but was well worth it.
  9. Most of the floors looked alike with nothing worth documenting so we didn't show every floor, but yes this place was covered from bottom to top and back down again and the view at the end is what made it worth it. That and how long it has been sat there and no one has recorded it so had to be done. We are trying to look for some more photogenic places that no one has done. So gonna have to travel as my local area is pretty much done now. Thanks for the comments though!
  10. Built in 1871 but had been refurbished at some point. Now, I don't do heights.. So I was chuffed to see my mate practically run towards it in excitement and go first. It was pretty high and the grated floor was not ideal if you wanted to avoid looking down. The tower probably stands around 40-50 ft but exact measurements are unknown at this point. Apart from the odd clanging of metal under our footsteps and how wobbly it was, it was a good first climb like this for me! Got some snaps as usual, enjoy!
  11. Hi all. We have invested in a new camera and went out during the night to see how well it can handle the low light images. The result was actually rather impressive! So please enjoy the snaps we managed to get. It isn't a new area, but it is a good place to get some shots. Feel free to let us know which pic you guys like! Keep in touch to see some new places real soon. Cheers, C
  12. Falcon house. It's been in Swindon since the early days of this towns birth and has been sat empty and abandoned for 16 years. It was said to be the very first headquarters for the well known company zurich, an insurance company, but was promptly moved to a more practical and efficient property. The old office block is situated in Swindon town centre on top of a car park right near the entrance to town, which is an eye sore to some but a worthy explore for us. There was nothing much left, only old phones and some really old school computer stuff. It was the view at the end of the video that made it all worth it, being the second highest point in the town aside from the john murray building. What a view! So please enjoy this video by my good friend and make sure to check out the channel! Have fun out there, C
  13. Yeah i know there i've never been though Keep it up! Maybe one day our paths will meet. You're not too far from me but i've not really explored that far yet lol
  14. Checked out your blogs, they are pretty cool! I'll make sure to follow you on here too. I'm also fairly new to the forum and looking for better places that will be good to get photos and write ups on. I'll check out your youtube vid too and i'll make sure to give it a thumbs up I've also got a video we've recently done on my friends youtube, you can find it on my page on here Where's the best place you've done in your opinion?
  15. Really nice photos, loving the cockpit view
