  1. A building used by a payroll clerk & security guards, I believe that it was left sometime in the 80s. There wasn't much, but I found many passes and cards dated from 1940 on the floor. You can see some of the time card slots used by employees and manufactured by IBM.
  2. was lucky enough to spend 3 days in the exclusion zone earlier this year; some shote within the former USSR "secret" Radar Station
  3. This is a very popular textile factory in Italy. It is very big, it even has a power plant which used to power the whole structure when it was functioning. We stayed there for like 4 hours and managed to explore maybe only 2/3 of the place (or even less)... Entering there was tricky because all the doors has recently been welded (even that one which was used by all the explorers) and the only remaining access was 3 meters away from a couple in a car while doing... nothing, literally. They were just sitting in their car doing nothing... So we had to improvise a little bit. When we got out we almost got spotted by a very slow police car so I instantly layed down inside the cabin at the entrance (I was taking a picture there) and my mate hid himself behind of it. We even heard the police radio a few meters away from us. After a few minutes we saw the car moving away from us, and then we managed to get out. That was honestly funny lol Here is the complete album.
  4. (Image Heavy) Browns Island is located on a river in the Midwest, the island has a long, interesting history. It was noted by George Washington during his travels, and Meriwether Lewis from the Lewis and Clark Expedition camped there in 1803, on the site there's an ancient Native mound, and early petroglyphs existed on the head of the island. For around 100 years the island was privately owned and farmed until 1957, when a steel company bought it to build a coke plant. There was also a mail plane crash on the island in 1933 that killed the pilot and passenger. In Dec of 1972, right before the Coke Ovens started operating, there was a gas explosion which killed 21 construction workers, the oven were operational until 1982, eventually, they were demolished and the island sold slag for commercial use until 2008. Although there were no ovens standing, it was still an interesting explore, my neighbor and grandfather worked here when the Mill used it. I was very fortunate to get permission to go on it
  5. it was actually a last minute decision to visit this explore. en route home from doing the manton colliery explore i passed the fomer pumping station at bracebridge with a shall i or sha,nt i so a quick turn round of the car i squeezed in behind some twat in a skoda who thought it a very good idea to park across the entrance who then decided to move and the explore was on. Built in 1881 Bracebridge Pumping Station was part of Worksop's new sewage system. It used two steam-driven beam engines (together with a travelling crane) to pump the sewage to the effluent processing facility. The engine was coal-fired, with the coal being brought in from nearby Shireoaks Colliery by boat via the Chesterfield Canal. Like many Victorian pumping stations it was built with no little style, designed in an Italian Romanesque style including ornate cast-iron columns and a spiral staircase. Apparently these remain inside (the columns are most definitely visible on external view). Now Grade II Listed, the building along with 1.33 acres of land is currently bricked yp to prevent access so sorry no interior shots the old pumping station has been like this since it was refurbished many years ago there was talk of turning it into an attraction but nothing has happened yet and possibly wont do for the forseeable future the old pumping station viewed from high hoe road the old beds still filled with water one of the victorian columns can still be seen through the windowless building rising upwards towards the ornate chimney a closer view of the ornate victorian columns the base of the chimney from the back of the pumping house the rear of the pumphouse the rear of the pumphouse and chimney the middle of the chimney with the lightning conductor on the right the top of the chimney and the lightning conductor someone had gained access inside by a rope tied to one of the windows but feeling a bit cream crackered i didnt fancy the tarzan routine so i didnt bother
  6. 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.
  7. Formerly a small marine education centre. Closed in the 2000s. Thoroughly wrecked and all history seems to have been forgotten by the Internet and locals near it. G h
