  1. The Flight of Project Brown Eye A miracle happened: My friend was done smashing rocks at his 50 hour a week day job and wanted to come out for a splore! I was up for it, but my only condition was he would have to drive Haha! Our first target was another military site in our area, but we were swiftly mugged off by a Securitas pick up truck and we went on our merry way, travelling further North. Our next target was Upwood. We had no idea how access was going to be or what would be left, but we just went for it anyway... As we got there we soon realised that the medical centre was being torn down as we spoke. We bumped into other Urbexers who said it had been going on all week, so I suppose within about a week or two of this thread it'll be torn down completely. Lots of little orange dudes were milling about the site so I took this shot at a distance. The remaining buildings are pretty 'bleh', but they're worth a mooch. I won't bore you all with too many pictures of them, because they're much the same. Was interesting trying to figure out what some of them were for though, particularly the semi-buried bunker type buildings. The centre pieces of this site have to be the tanks though. They're Russian PT-76 light tanks, which are 1950s era and amphibious. There's two on site in total. My hopes are that someone will have them and love them, rather than scrapping them. I snapped this rather dashing shot or Mr.Pb on the second one... Innards of the turrets. The armour is actually very thin - maybe about 1" on the weaker spots. Not to mention they're cramped as hell for a lanky git like me and there's plenty of sticky outy bits to bash my fat melon on. I sure as crap wouldn't want to be inside one during a war Pb drops into the drivers hatch. Looks like someone might have swept up in here or something. BBs litter to place EVERYWHERE from the airsoft donuts that plague this derp. We walked past them a few times but they were too focused on talking about their gear to notice us The toilets and shower rooms are in bad nick. Very smashed up. Shower room door. The chimney tower ladder. I would have climbed it, but it was full of pigeons n stank like their "peeps 'n' poops". Group shot on the tank! Video to go with it, looking at the tanks and bumping into various different people. Towards the end we manage to get "Project Brown Eye" a.k.a Bill's Nan's car in for an Urbex drive by, with hilarious results: So to conclude, I think if you haven't already had a mooch here, have a look now because it's going quick! The med centre is gone, so whether or not you still want to go if you're coming from a long way is up to you. I had a great day meeting all sorts of different people and walking around in the sun, despite breaking my GoPro. This place is the busiest Urbex site I've ever been to. Urbexers, photographers, Airsoft mugs and local land owners...I think half the county have been here at some point or the other! Cheers to Pb for driving! Thanks for looking.
  2. Hi all! Visited this awesome location May 2015. A lot of people told me that the place is very trashed and not worth a visit, i thought urbex stories so we gave it a try. See the result.

  3. A quickie, but a nice one...... Villa Margherita is an abandoned house in Italy. An ornate staircase curves around into the entrance hall. The house has been cleared of all content but the architecture of the staircase and hallway is lovely. That's about all I know! 1. Entrance hall 2. Behind stairs 3. Entrance hall 4. Staircase 5.

  4. A friend sent me the coordinates of the castle via SMS at the last day of our Italy tour this summer. And since it was on our way, we drove there. A restorer was present, who opened us and gave us permission to visit it. (Visited with Miaro Digital.) The castle was first mentioned in the late 14th century. It was in possession of various noble families and was rebuilt in the late 17th century. Recently the property was used as an orphanage. Mostly empty but with beautiful ceilings. Now, the castle is to be renovated in the coming years. Part one 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
  5. History Torpantau - also known as Beacons or Beacon Summit Tunnel - claimed the record for the highest tunnel on the UK's standard gauge network - 1,313 feet above sea level. Reached by a three-mile climb from the south at 1:47 and 1:55, trains passed through it curving sharply to the right on a radius of around 20 chains before emerging onto the notorious Seven Mile Bank, a falling gradient of 1:37 towards Brecon. Torpantau Tunnel (Sometimes known as Devils Tunnel) is 666 yards in length and features a masonry arch springing either off shelves cut high into the rock face or lengths of brick or stone sidewall which were added incrementally over time as the need arose. Refuges are incorporated throughout. Closed on 4th May 1964, the line was only carrying freight. Passengers services across the B&MJR system has ended by January 1963. Thanks for looking
  6. The (now well-known) castle dates from the 17th century, recent modifications / alterations were made in the 19th century. It is difficult to describe it. An overload of visual impressions ... It should be turned into a luxury hotel. But that was not begun until today, as far as I know. --- part one --- 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 („Force / power in the middle“) 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30
  7. i saw this place late last year and thought that looks quite derelict,and then I forgot about it,so a little while back I was near the place and remembered it.so I checked it from the outside.and it was certainly abandoned.as I entered I was pleasantly surprised what lay inside.i recently gave another explorer a tour of Norfolk and I thought I would take her here,and I enjoyed my visit more this time,as last time it was getting dark and I rushed around a bit
  8. When I first seriously started exploring, like many others you search the forums for local places to go too, well one that I always wanted to do was this lovely old Lodge set deep in the highlands. Back in the early days of UK exploring this was very popular, but I never somewhow managed to get myself that far north for one reason or another. After doing a good bit of research I decided on a area that looked very promising for small residential properties that had been left behind. Near this area, just happened to be the Coco Chanel House. It was the first stop of my trip, not knowing what to expect, having not seen pics from here in a number of years I was wary if it was even still empty. Arriving after walking down a long boggy back road, it been appearing through the thick pine trees, but there was a few other houses and they definitely seemed to be occupied between my approach and the Lodge. The house to my left was defo occupied I could hear a dog running about. Not wanting to turn back, I just decided to play the southern knob and blag my way out if seen. I needn't had worried, I waltzed straight down into the open back door, and had the place to myself for a couple hours! To be fair work has started on this place, with some of the rotten timbers being replaced and being tidied up some. But there was still plenty nice features and of course the remnants of the Coco Chanel interior. Luckily there is still some genuine Coco Chanel printed wallpaper remaining and the fireplaces of course. There we have it, not a lot left, but some lovely details for a grand old Scottish lodge. Thanks for looking!!
  9. This is my first post, so I thought I would post some images from my favorite location, which is now totally trashed. I have been here so many times, even used to spend quite some time in the beer garden after a shoot I hope the images go up ok. See more images here Horror chair by cozmicberliner, on Flickr
  10. Unfortunately, this place beautiful place has been heavily vandalized short before our visit. Some idiots have thrown most of the furniture from the first floor into the main corridor... #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 A few more shots can be found here, however most of the motifs have been destroyed http://www.industriesafari.de/Viewer/ManicomioC14/index.html
