  1. The old abandoned farmhouse - Charnock Richard - Chorley - Feb 2018 One of my favourite explores so far this old abandoned farmhouse was brimming with history and fortunately, we made it just before the bulldozers did. I've seen plenty of footage of this old place on the web and it seems we made it just after the foliage had been pruned lol. A quality explore with quality likeminded people.
  2. CAMELOT - Theme Park - Photographic Report - Feb 2018 This abandoned resort and theme park is located in the English county of Lancashire. The park's theme was based on the well-known story of King Arthur and the Knights of the roundtable After numerous takeovers, the theme park was purchased by Story Group and leased to Knight's Leisure who ran the park. However, it's closure was announced by the operator, in November 2012. In August 2014, an application to build houses on the site was unanimously rejected with 261 public objections. As of Feb 2018, the park stands empty a former shadow of its glory day slowly but surely falling victim to mother nature. A new housing development plan has been submitted, to many a protest from the local residents, However, if it does go through the once magical kingdom of Camelot will be lost forever. We gained entry into the former petting zoo and made our way to the middle of the park where we were caught by 4 security guards and a static full of dogs. Anyway, I hope you can enjoy the pics as its all I was able to get. Any feedback greatly appreciated.
  3. Hey, guys here's my video report on the #post-apocalyptic #Camelot #ThemePark.

  4. Former Latvian Consulate Charnock Richard - Feb 2018 I'm posting this to save you a journey lol, plus I wanted to at least make some use of the time I spent there even if the photos aren't the greatest! Pemberton farm was the former home of Howard J Pym Honorary Consul For Latvia and his family. The property was renovated in 2005 and the Pym family lived here until 2007. Timber Latvia Ltd was registered at Pemberton farm incorporated in 2010 but later dissolved. Since then the property has been on on the market for close to one million pounds, however, it now lies in a state of utter destruction thanks to vandals and arsonists and almost nothing remains of its former glory. Unfortunately, that is all the info I could gather on this place and I'm sure you'll agree from the pics it is a no-go, however, we did find thousands of spent ammunition rounds so if you can then please let me know what you think they are.
  5. The Old Unknown Farmhouse - Chorley - Photographic Report - Feb 2018 I struggled to find any history on this stunning location except for the multitude of artifacts left inside from photographs to a pencil sketch by a man called Brian jay and the possibility that the property was once owned by a freemason. I have to admit guys this was my favorite explore to date. From the artifacts in and around the property including that stunning Vauxhall, my favorite find to date. To the general atmosphere of the old place. I had a quality time man and a trip back through it.
  6. Ok time for one of my very very early reports lol. Tourist central but was great has never been at the time. Now its been burned up has far as i know. I know its been done a lot but hopefully i may have something of intrest we will see. History this is all i could dig up. the home of UK’s consul to the Kingdom of Latvia from 2005 until 2007. The building has undergone various changes and alterations over the years. Extensive renovation work took place to prepare the building for use at the Latvian Consulate. This has resulted in a strange mixture of modern styles which are now beginning to look dated The residence was sold after it ceased to be used by the consul and plans were drawn up to demolish the building and redevelop the land for use as a rehabilitation centre for people with drug and mental health problems. Objections were made and the building has been unused since the planning application was withdrawn. So sad how downhill this has gone... Even worse now. Explore It was well easy lol. But wish i could have seen it in its prime. on with pics What used to be the pool What was left of snooker table Jakuzi what was left Where the table used to be Hope you enjoy. Its just an empty shell now. Thanks for looking all its apreciated
  7. So i went up north and fancied meself abit of underground arch porn.. as you do was absolutley gutted to ge tehre and find this... Sorry its a crappy phone pic, I was proper gutted!
  8. Last time I visited here I didn't have a tripod and ended up not being able to get any decent shots so as I was sat on the M6 going no with the turn off less than a mile away I decided to break up the trip up There isn't any history knocking about but since the other reservoir down the road was demolished this is now the last remaining victorian service reservoir in Lancashire, there are not many of these brick vaulted reservoirs left in the country with most that are left being in or around Landan.
  9. After looking for this one for a while it popped up in here so I have to say thanks to Will Knot for the location, like a dick I was looking half a mile up the road for the site. I was passing and decided to pop in under the cover of darkness, to say it's close to the nearby house would be an understatement so I headed over in the dark and almost slipped on my arse more than once but it was worth it I did have a new tripod after Hyde Falls ate my manfroto one but the new one snapped the day I got it so these are handheld or with the camera placed on the floor .
  10. 201 Ok so I thought my previous report was going to be my last but I thought why not put some old ones up to just continue contributing etc. Visited last november on a very chilly night, within weeks of news it was to close.
  11. I needed a poo and was driving through Chorley so I decided to pop in the Latvian Embassy. It's rare to find a decent crapper in a derp let alone toilet roll worth using but this one had both. I can't find any history on the site so here is some random info about Latvia It's pretty swanky inside with stables, swimming pool, sauna, snooker room, loads of bathrooms, a couple of kitchens and loads of bedrooms. The decor is a bit dated but the place did close 5 years ago I left a steaming log in the toilet 10+ urbex points for the next person in if they take a pic of it Finally the stables
