  1. Hi all! Not sure on the history of this place but its been around a while. Not a bad place. Not that exciting but we were passing so thought we would have a mooch! A couple of nice cars.
  2. Not a bad little mooch this one. Quite a lot of area to cover with most of it being stripped unfortunately but, there is still stuff to see and some nice decay in parts. It seems the building was used to make carpet underlay form 2002 until 2013. I guess its been abandoned since then. Visited with non member Paul. History The Arrol-Johnston Motor Co., which had been in operation since 1896, opened its Dumfries factory at Heathhall in July 1913. The manager, Thomas Charles Pullinger, had been inspired by the Albert Kahn designed factories of Henry Ford in America. Kahn provided the design for the Dumfries factory, and it bears more than a passing resemblance to Ford's Highland Park factory in Detroit. The Heathhall factory was said to be the most advanced light engineering factory of its day in Scotland. The site was purchased by the North British Rubber Company in 1946. It then became Uniroyal Ltd in the 60's, and in 1987 changed yet again to the British subsidiary of the Gates Rubber Company. It has been known as Interfloor since 2002. .

  3. In the region of Bourgogne in France there was an old man living in a little village with his 5 dogs and his donkey. Once he has been a successful rallye driver and a car developer working in Nizza. He decided to collect the cars he used once and behind his house you could find a huge collection of rarely old racing cars decayed by nature. But that was not enough, he also collected cars around his garage and on a little estate a few hundred meters away from his house. Firstly we went there in 2016 but the old man wasn't there, so we had no chance to take a look at his sporting car collection and also no way to see his garage. Sadly we walked around and by chance we found the other estate few hundred meters away. Once it has been a normal field and now it was a thick forest. Never seen old cars became a part of the nature like this before. We were absolutely enchanted of this place and that's the reason why we called it 'Magic Forest'. We couldn't finish to shoot the cars cause sunset was coming. We decided to come back to this wonderful place to meet the old guy and to see his other collection. But at our next visit his house was demolished. The old decayed cars were laying on an heap and the digger was still running. We met the daughter of the old man there and she told us that he died. She will bring the hole area back to a field and depollute the cars. The really expensive cars she put into a closed hall and maybe sell it. Damn this was a little shock for us. The demolishing of our 'Magic Forest' had already began but fortunately we could see the most of it again for last time. Now everything is gone. Everyone who shooted cars already knows that it's often not easy with the space and the light. Same here... 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27
  4. In 1960 Alfa Romeo grow out of their old factory located in Portello and started with the construction of a new plant located in Arese. This new plant had an Centro Stile (Design centre), Offices, Powerplant, Centro Technico (technical centre), and much more. Unfortunately in 2005 the whole factory closed after the last V6 Busso engine rolled out of the factory which made the once modern factory abandoned. In 2014 the factory was demolished to make place for a mall and parking spots, the only thing that still remain are the old technical centre and the design centre. In the summer of 2017 I was in the area so I decided to go and have a look at what remains of the factory. To my surprise there were still sections open and it had even had some papers and some car parts inside. Thanks for reading and I hoped you liked it!
  5. First vid upload for a while, although I have not stopped exploring. Should be more videos coming up soonish This gothic mansion was once owned by a doctor who released a mental health patient who sadly went on to stab an 11 yr old girl to death. I believe he was pretty much chased out of his home by locals (they may or may not of have had burning torches) Nice place though, there used to be more cars, but sadly there gone now. The car is a 1964 humber super snipe and yes I know I spelt doctor wrong on the vid title god knows why

  7. We found a house not so far off from where we live, in which we had not seen movement in weeks. Grass was growing wild and nothing changed around the house. Time to explore (on easters day ). First ring the bell to check if not some kind of creep lives here. No one answers. An alarm is mounted on the side of the house so we were not sure to put too much force on doors and windows. There was no chance to get inside easily so we’ll leave this for now, keeping an eye on it. We have good shots from the outside but we’ll keep them for ourselves until we eventually get in. Here’s a preview… 1. DSC_0098 Nonetheless we explored the garden which turned out to be of considerable extent. After we crawled trough a little hole in the hedge. We encountered what appeared to be an old playground and some sheds of a former building company. 2. DSC_0101 3. DSC_0107 4. DSC_0109 5. DSC_0114 6. DSC_0116 7. DSC_0123 8. DSC_0125 9.

  8. I got a tip from a friend at work about lots of cars in the woods, so I thought I would take a look. Now this place is not normal!! Next to the road is a small compound made up of corrugated iron, random fence panels, doors and bicycles!!!! Behind this compound are loads of cars, which did hold a few hidden gems. Loads of the cars were filled to the brim with stuff, books records tvs and lots of other junk. Sorry but they are all fisheye shots, I didn't feel safe here at all and wasn't going to mess about changing lenses. It was a maze to get through and I struggled to find a route around the site. Then I see a man walk straight through, I have no idea how he went through so easily, or how he never saw me. Sadly he eventually did and wasn't best pleased. Needless to say after his rant I was happy to be leaving by foot and not being dragged into the compound to be his meal for the next week!! I hope you enjoy. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 I would of loved to know what was under this, I couldn't lift it high enough and the wheels gave no clue either. And here is a few processed shots to finish off 9 10 11 12 MG
  9. We found ourselves nearby this place so thought we would pop in for another look. The place has changed considerably since the last time I was here. All the undergrowth around the house has been cut back and cleared. It looks completely different seeing the house stood there, although for whatever reason I didn’t actually get a shot of it. I didn’t go into the house, I only took shots of the cars and some stuff in the barn. The cars have taken a right beating since they became famous; there are only a couple left that actually have windscreens in them. Visited with Andre Govia, D-Kay, Odin's Raven, Happy Shopper & Me Two Some pictures #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7
  10. Hi all... just signed up sp thought I would post a couple of explores from a few weeks ago rather than all my historical ones. This was a little tour I did of Lincolnshire, not sur eof much history on the place other than it was origionaly a brick yard, subsiquently converted to a lumber saw mill and finaly the resting place of some nice old cars. Thanks for looking
  11. Came across this field of cars after a day of failed splores, i was chuffed to bits. There is a history behind it but I cant go into to much detail, but by the sounds of it, it was an obsession that ended a marriage. It was a great mooch, loads and loads of cars, some older than others and none of them would ever pass a MOT again. But for me seeing Stasky and Hutch on the bus, made me a little bit happy!! Splored with Miss.Anthrope Thanks for looking x
  12. Not a lot of story behind this one, just a heap load of classic cars amongst the trees on a plot of land. Some of them have been there so long that the trees have grown through them, many of them have rusted so badly that they have collapsed into themselves in a brown mess of paper like metal
