  1. 2nd to last explore this one,happened to be along our route back toward ferry port so as Urban Junky had mentioned he popped in here when we met up at the hotel it seemed rude not to go have a look.. Seems it was some form of coal washing site from what ive been told.. There is a inscription in the wall outside and it reads.. This sorting laundry was built with the help of Credit marshall testimony of the generosity of the united states of America.. Well thats how google translates it.The site is massive big holes everywhere and brutal concrete design we spent hours wandering about shooting this place. explored with Sx-riffraff SpaceInvader Big ugly and full of angles to shoot ,so in all i loved it
  2. This was day one of our tour de la derp.. Fascinating place and many rooms full of allsorts including the basement level with the bits everyone wants to see.. Visited with sx-riffraff ,Crazy fool and spaceinvader who was having 40 winks back atthe car The horror labs is situated in a now mainly converted area so making access not as straightforward as youd like ,but access was gained none the less The light in here as many of you know or have gathered isnt great due to the small window at end of the room so its a bitch to get right Thanks for looking and no doubt i'll have a few more up during the day
  3. My take on Prison 15H and from what I gather there is going to be a fair few from this place coming to a forum near you Soon! Thanks to Phantom Bish and Camera shy for the Intel. Cheers guys. Seems we where out the same weekend as Mr Bish but missed him by a day.. Early morning start and a Euro tunnel trip purely to do this place and then home intime for tea..This is an advantage of living 45 mins from the Euro tunnel, met many euro explorers while in the place and some well kitted up graffers on the way out.,Other than that no problems where had,even the Gypo colony in the car park wasn’t an issue.. Enough bollox from me and here’s 15 of the 230 odd I took 60% of them I was happy with but no one wants to see a apic heavy report of the place!! Explored with Sx-riffraff,Obscurity,Spaceinvader and Urban Ginger
  4. Blast form the past,thanks matey
  5. These are the shots that even i cant stretch to a report on each of them.. So i thought id lump them into a combined report. Uni l L'ecole Labryinth IM cooling tower One more report at some point then im done..thanks for putting up with the huge amount of reportage!
  6. Think ive got the name right,well the name people give it over there! Visited with SpaceInvader and Sx-riffraff.... Not my usual haunt but had some nice odds and sods left behind if a little hard to photograph what with the lack of room so heres a small selection of the pics i took! thanks for looking
  7. This was pretty much the last explore from day 1 of our trip,yes its very done to death but i havnt seen it so it was new to me and something i wanted to do..Think the cemetery is closed now as there is signs pof work being carried out with portacabins and security etc Explored with crazy fool,SpaceInvader and Sx-riffraff Not a huge amount of pics as they all get a bit samey tbh..Loads i could have done with the 50mm but im not a fan of too many close ups of peoples names on the stones,so here's a mixed batch ! Now theres a few shots i have with this guy,He's called eric which is the name sx-riffraff gave him..thing is my wife does a lot of crochet and wanted me to take something she had made and photograph it in various locations so she can post the pics on the sites/pages the crochet gang use..so if its not "proper exploring"Tough one last one of eric..
  8. Can't beat a decent vault ,nice one mate
  9. This was a place we had wanted to visit for a long time so when it got mentioned in memory of DHL that a group of people would be getting together up here i jumped at the chance.. So myself UrbanGinger SpaceInvader met up with PaulPowers and headed in ,then met way too many people to name if i could remember who everyone was.. Nice to meet up with old and new faces..RIP dave Sorry i didnt get round to the abseil pitch that was set up my head was way to spinny for that.Great evening was had ,Thanks to all involved
  10. Lovely photographs,is there a background story you could tell about your explore here?
  11. ah my crap attempts at photographing that bloody door live on,thanks matey
  12. Not much to say about this one ,It was a Ragstone mine for building stone, probably 19th century,there has been much rumour of tunnels under this area and not much actual information ,seems it was opened up many years ago and surveyed after it had been sealed up in the 1960's,some evidence of later visits are visable but other than that it seems to have been forgotton about and became more rumour than fact in later years! Props to Obs for finding a way into this one
  13. I remember when the security hut was placed right next to this years back,noty a bloody hope of getting in,nice to see what lurks in there
  14. They are good pics mate,was a place that had to be visited,and unlike another place we hit ,i didn't mind revisiting this one
  15. Oh mate i hadn't realised you didnt post this report,was a non stop trip with a lot of stupidity and laughs..frogs where fondled and sheep where aggressive..great company and it's sad to see this one go!
  16. Is certainly an interesting one this,nice to see some detail shots of the place and in full daylight,most mine are long exposures
  17. These two are something myself and Obscurity had discussed and researched a fair bit and then when we where both at a loose end Boxing day 2014 we decided to go seek both and check out our options of access after a few visits and a lot of leg work we came back scratching our heads,fast forward to earlier this year and i spotted a few random pics from @silentwalker from Godstone so after a chat and exchange of info about the underground locations in the area he kindly included us in his finds..Thanks for that mate and was good to catch up with you in Marden Brief and general history of Godstone Hill Quarries .. "The Godstone Hill Quarries are similar to the Chaldon Quarries except that they are more recent and date back to the late 17thC, most of the extant workings are from the 18thC. There are quite a number of separate quarries that have merged or divided over the years; today there are four major quarries there of which Godstone Main Series is the largest and best known. The quarries were worked for firestone initially and later phases of working had plate-ways laid along the main haulage routes which still survive. Later the quarries were re-worked for hearthstone. After this they were used as mushroom farms in the early 20thC and then fell derelict between the wars. Some of the quarries were used for storage during WW2. Main Series has several miles of open passage and even today provides a fascinating study of a quarry that has both pre and post industrial revolution features" Godstone first.. This one was visited with Spaceinvader,Urbanginger and Obscurity and as much as we had wanted in for a long time it just didn't get my juices flowing as much as Marden! pics.. Now onto Marden where i may have nearly knocked myself out running through a doorway and not stooping low enough to avoid a lump on the head :gay Brief copied history from the WCMS website. "Marden Mine is the easternmost of the major quarries along Godstone Hill. This is very similar to Main Series with an almost identical development and usage. This quarry was also a secure store during WW2 and continued to be worked for hearthstone for a short period after WW2. The area around Marden Mine is riddled with numerous smaller holes and collapses indicating the remains of more hearthstone mines - sadly this type of mining is incompatible with stable or long-lasting passages and most have now fallen in" Visited with Obscurity Starlight Silent walker his mate porker of the night,nice to meet you guys Pics.. Really good to get in to see both of these ,again thanks to Silentwalker for the much appreciated input
  18. There are many small workings close to marden mainly collapsed in so very small areas to squeeze into and over the years godstone itself has comprised of several smaller mines that have been dug through but yes there are some others fairly closr also looked after by thewcms chaps
  19. It's looked after by the wcms mate and well locked up
  20. Some take it all way to seriously mate,there is a time and a place for being serious and there is time for fuckery...this being the latter
  21. This is what exploring should be all about mate,laughs a few beers no doubt and having fun,and fuck me its a fricking spaceship
