  1. Hi everyone. I am Craig, I am English but live in the Netherlands (right up the top right part). I have been interested in old places for a while. Just did not realise it was a "Thing" I travel tracks and trails around Europe and love stumbling across old places off the beaten track.
  2. History This factory was opened in 1900 and made cardboard out of straw, in that time this product was very popular so 8 years later the made another factory next to the other one. In 1968 the factory closed due to competition from abroad, after the factory was closed it was sold off to a men who repaired and sold off machines. The new owner only did nothing about maintenance of the old factory so the factory complex decayed rapidly. in 2005 the original factory was demolished and the other factory was luckily protected as a monument. Later in 2009 the restoration began on the still standing factory. 6 years later the company who began with the restoration began to have financial troubles so the factory was abandoned again. After being abandoned for 1 year the factory was bought on a auction for an incredible low price, after that the restoration was back on track again. Explore We went on a Sunday so the workers waren't working on the building. When we got there, there was a door opened so we could enter the beautiful old factory building. The highlight of the building was the old Turbine and the old ovens. Hope you enjoyed my post!
  3. This is an old paper factory were they would make cardboard, The factory opened in 1905 and closed in 2005 after the company was taken over by an other company which stopped the production. There was also this old burned out Jaguar which was quite nice to photograph. Thanks for looking!

  5. I'd forgotten about this set for quite a while First location on the big ass bergwerk trip. No history sadly, sometimes it's hard to get the information on these euro sites. Proper nice church though, it's a shame all the pews are smashed up. I have seen some pictures from 2013 and everything was in place. The pictures here are older so they may not be as up to scratch as recent Here they are: cheers

  7. Rainbow Church is a brick built Catholic place of worship in the Netherlands. The entire building is a giant triangular-shaped arch with the brickwork exposed inside. The arch shape is concentrically repeated several times in the altar. The church has now been closed for a few years. Visited a Monkey of the Spiderous variety. 1.

  11. Hello everyone, I've been exploring since April and planning on many more trips. Unfortunately there aren't many locations here in The Netherlands so I'm most of the time exploring in Belgium. Soon I will be adding Germany to the list too. Cheers!
  12. First report on the forum, first location i explored. When a friend of mine asked me if i wanted to go with her, and take pictures of an abandoned mental hospital I hesitated, and thought it would't be my thing, But I didn't have any other plans that weekend so what the heck i'll go. When we arrived on-site i was surprised of how derelict it looked, and was like, this is kind of cool. But the moment we entered the building i was hooked, this was awesome! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157643471440624/ Cheers!
  13. On our way to this location I bought a new car, and although the bastard is giving me a lot of shit it was a good day. The story goes that about 20 years ago the original garage owner died and because of some dissagreements in the family they just left it for what is was. But somewhere in those 20 years someone reopened the garage, but the showroom and the cars where still left untouched. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157648854763418/ Cheers!

  15. Found this location by the end of 2012, but couldn't get an entry to it. Returned for many times while it was fully furniture d. To bad i couldn't get in without breaking, so had to wait till summer 2014, unfortunately they removed most of the interior by then. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5

  18. Whilst on holiday with the wife & kids last week I managed to slip away for a couple of hours to check out this old abandoned zoo. Opened in 1937 and closed in 1985 and at one time housed 3500 animals. The place is massively overgrown and a lot of the old wooden buildings have collapsed onto themselves. The animal cages still survive within the undergrowth and the large greenhouse is relatively intact although pretty much full of bushes and brambles other than a very small part at one end. I didn’t see anybody else whilst I was there but there are signs that it is somewhat looked after as there were fresh tyre tracks visible on the ground and there was obvious signs of repair to the various holes that have been made in the fences over time. An unusual explore it was the first abandoned zoo for me and although not a massive amount to see it was worth a look.

  22. Old farmhouse, visted last week. Owner came to check it out while we were inside, but he didnt expected us to be inside the living compartment. Saw him walking at the other side of the windows, but in and out without a bust 1: 2: 3: 4:Ranch Nadine by Emiel Koopman, on Flickr
  23. This site is abandoned since 2001, declared to be a monument and then left to rot. Once it was a big pottery, but its been closed for 13 years now. Since then everything remained the way it was abandoned. We visited this location early in the morning, cause one of my mates who was with us, was caught here before for 2 times, now the owner (who is living on the site) would call the cops if he would spot us. A lovely place to visit, and a non HDR repo this time. 1: 2: 3: 4: 5: 6: [ 7: 8: 9: 10:
