Simple really...kind of lifted from the 'Teleportation' thread but different What places are you gutted to have never seen that if you could invent a time machine you'd instantly go back and see them? Me, I missed Cane Hill in it's intact nature by about 18 months! I saw it from the outside when it was stripped and about 2/3 demolished, and that was it. I'd loved to have seen Deva and St. Mary's Asylums as well given the chance, Deva was gone before I got into it proper and St. Mary's was too far away for me to get to it although it was still around for a bit while I was starting. I missed Colindale Hospital by a matter of weeks, the same weekend as the Cane Hill trip which was my very first weekend of urbex back in 2009. By the time we turned up expecting a totally intact hospital, demolition crews had moved in and were crawling over the site... The car graveyard in Chatillon in Belgium, I absolutely kick myself for not getting over there and seeing it before it was cleared. Same with the SAFEA Fertiliser plant in La Louviere, a site that rivalled Pyestock in size, closed in the late 70s but stayed pretty much intact up until it was demolished a few years back... Just remember, don't take these places we are exploring now for granted because one day they will be gone...
