  1. Hi all! Just a quick one this time, we decided to visit an old abandoned boatyard which also had an old car place inside as well. We couldn't find to much history on this one however it was nicely buried away in some trees/bushes along the side of the South Coast. Hope you enjoy the footage!
  2. I must admit we were very sceptical with this one so anything we moved, like the keys, were put back in the correct place. As you saw there is still some form of power to the building.
  3. Yeah I really enjoyed this one, was very surprised myself!
  4. Hi all I'm back again! Today we went and visited an old boarding school in Chichester. We did not know if the place was abandoned but we got a tip to say it "might" be abandoned. Well...we went to check out this place and my god it has got to be one of the better ones I've been to. No graffiti onsite but just an awesome explore all in all! HISTORY: The site itself originally started life as a boarding school and has a full range of classrooms, studios and offices. They had an onsite IT room which could fit up to 20 students at a time and also 2 large greenhouses for training in horticultural skills. The centre itself was very highly-regarded in the area and was built within the grounds of a grade II listed house. It went on to become a residential educational and training centre until the site officially closed its doors in 2011. Enjoy the video and if you really liked it feel free to subscribe to our channel!
  5. Hi all, We went and visited a WW2 Shelter last night on the outskirts of London. The place was absolutely incredible and even had left behind remnants. We found it that it had been unsealed again so we decided to set off straight away as we did not want to miss this chance. I hope you enjoy the video! HISTORY: I couldn't find to much however the shelter was built on the grounds of Cane Hill Asylum around the time of WW2. There were also another 3 tunnels built at the same time. Sometime after the war the tunnels were bought by a specialist manufacture of optical devices which included mainly lenses for large telescopes. The Company left the site in the early 70s to then go on and finish trade in 1978. It basically then turned into a tipping site for old car parts until they were sealed up by the local council.
  6. Hi all! We decided to hit the road and head for Staines to take a look at an industrial warehouse which was still full of all the old stuff! I couldn't find much history about the place as it is very old and from what I can see dates back to 1919 so a very long time. The explore was awesome, checking out all of the old machinery in the building and having a good wonder around! Access was fairly straight forward after having a quick scout of the building but once inside we were amazed at how big this place actually was! Anyway please feel free to check the footage!
  7. Hi all, we are back already with another video! This time we had been tipped off of an abandoned Chinese resturant in Southampton and what an explore it was! It turns out that everything had been left behind although the place being slightly trashed. I couldn't find to much in regards to history of this place but I don't think it's too extensive but after looking at the reviews it seems pretty obvious why this place was closed down as it was stated as having terrible customer service and wasn't very hygenic. Hope you like the video, like always open to feedback. I am looking at getting new equipment to help with low light so please bear with me!
  8. Thanks Dubbed, Appreciate the feedback! Starting to get back into the motion of recording videos as places near me went dry but a fair few locations are popping up now so looking to upgrade camera for better quality. I prefer uploading raw footage as you then get to see exactly what we saw. I appreciate the feedback though, so thank you.?
  9. Thanks mate! Great welcoming looking forward to helping out and providing more video content! I'm based in the South of the UK, 22, and enjoy going out weekend exploring with my mates!
  10. Hi everyone! This is my footage of Battle Hospital in Reading. I visited in May 2018 and the explore went extremely well as we managed to search the entire site without any interruptions and oh my what a place to explore! A Little History The site was created in 1867 as a Workhouse which went on to be known as the Reading Union Workhouse. They added an infirmary to the site between the years of 1889 and 1892 which added the space for an extra 185 beds! Amongst the First World War it was then known as the Reading War Hospital. It was then in 1930 that it became Battle Hospital but it's not over quite yet as in 1952 they built a new maternity unit which was known as Thames Block and then in 1972 they built a new block called Abbey block so by 1993 Battle Hospital was able to accomodate 280 beds however this was not great compared to the 760 beds at Reading's other hospital, the Royal Berkshire Hospital. It was then in 2005 that Battle Hospital closed it's doors for the final time with all the patients being transferred over to the Royal Berkshire hospital in a new block which would be known as Battle block. Thanks for reading! Hopefully you found something of interest
