  1. This what we found in a small village in Germany
  2. To start this is my first Urbex mission kind of, I couldn’t find an access point into the building but it literally only has two rooms. Back in the 1950’s and early 60’s this place was an auto garage in a tiny township of Centerton. There was no information about the building online so I had to ask my grandmother about the place. She he didn’t know when the building was constructed but she did know that the man who owned and operated the building was named Bob Wood, she didn’t know how long he owned the garage (she was a kid back in the days of operation) but when he died his son tried to operate the place but instead it was boarded up and left to rust.

  4. Hi all, just joined the forum. My name ist "Ghost-Scooter" as I'm discovering locations most of the time with my brave Vespa called "Rosinante". Therefore mainly I am travelling Bavaria - where I live. But, believe it or not, I've been riding a few times through Italy, France and hopefully will go to Great Britain in 2018. Hope to find astonishing pictures and interesting people in here. So far, cheers all Ghost-Scooter
  5. Out and about looking for derps, drove past this interesting place by the roadside, turns out the cottage was lasted used as an office for a small firm. Quite shit, but hey worth a couple pics Not the best, but far from the worst I've done, still another one ticked off the list and a 40 min explore done
  6. Another little jolly out in the rolling hills of Grampian was this promising looking little house on the hill, sadly it was pretty empty but the cooker was lovely!! Yup thats it, short and sweet!
  7. Short Video from last month, lots to see here
  8. First of all, thanks to those who made this possible, and those who set up the tealights visited on a few trips with several friends and met a few down here, been waiting to go here for a while now and it still amazes me to how big this place is! Short Brothers plc is an aerospace company, usually referred to as Shorts, now based at Belfast, Northern Ireland. Shorts was founded in 1908 in London, and was the first company in the world to make production aircraft.[1] It was particularly notable for its flying boat designs manufactured into the 1950s. Due to the company's success, and the increasing number of seaplanes being produced, larger premises were clearly needed, with ready access to the sea. At that time, seaplanes were taken by road to Queenborough, then loaded onto lighters to be taken to the RNAS seaplane station on Isle of Grainto be launched and tested.[13] In 1913, an 8.4 acre (3.4 hectare) plot of land by the river Medway about 20 miles (32 km) away at Borstal,[13] nearRochester, Kent, was purchased from a Mr. Willis (a local councillor), and the planning and construction work started.[14] By early 1915, the first facility of what was to become known as the Seaplane Works was completed: No.1 Erecting Shop. As this and the No.2 and No.3 shops became available, the workforce moved from the Eastchurch factory, No.3 shop being completed in 1917. A long concrete slipway was constructed from the centre-line of No.3 Erecting Shop to enable aircraft of up to 20 tons weight to be launched even at low tide.[14] ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Short_Brothers it was also used as a shelter in ww2, and most recently a company called blaw knocks brought it and was used to build/store parts for road paving machines! anyway, pictures =) Thanks all for looking, More on my Flickr; http://www.flickr.com/photos/mperryphotography/
  9. The final day of our summer expedition was spent largely mooching around Powerstation IM - A huge derelict coal-fired power station in Belgium. Apologies for a lack of images, my tripod had broken the day before so I can only give you a taster of this huge site. You'll just have to visit in person to see more. This being the final day of a 7 day trip we were all a little fatigued so when we headed for the cooling tower to begin I just couldn't work up the enthusiasm for getting wet and muddy going underneath to get that shot. Lending my wellies to Me Two I headed into the cooling tower proper, there to seemingly wait an eternity for Me Two and Subversive to emerge. At least the slots between gangways allowed for hurling some abuse their way while we waited. Colossus by jamescharlick, on Flickr After making a short jog across the river we headed inside and up to the main level with all the generators and such. If you've never been inside a power station before you might assume the behemothic cooling towers outside are going to be the largest spaces you will encounter. You'll soon realise however that you're very wrong. As soon as you walk into the turbine halls, in fact. Huge spaces with ceilings receding off upwards somewhere high above you which only accentuates the space and the scale of the turbines themselves. Generator by jamescharlick, on Flickr Heading upwards towards the main control room, I realised quite how tired my legs were after days of non-stop exploring. Another level? Ok. Ow. One more? Great. Ow. Not this one then? Wonderful. Ow. Rusty Décadence by jamescharlick, on Flickr The control room is pretty much in tact, but very hard to photograph because of the location of the windows. I might fight with that image later on, but I doubt it. It's a very utilitarian space, rather tightly packed and not very photogenic. The gangways and spaces surrounding it with the network of interconnected pipes however, although dark, are rather interesting and there are some nice features if you care to hunt them down. Rustopolis by jamescharlick, on Flickr Up again into the light once more and you find on the top levels shiny silver pipes and hoppers, an odd contrast to the grimy black of the layers below and the primary reds and blues of the turbines further down again. There's something to photograph in every direction. Left, right, up, down, I don't think a tired mind could cope with the options available here, and the combination of fatigued indifference and a buggered tripod meant I came away dissatisfied with my efforts to capture the space and features. Next time we'll hit this first. I think you need to. Sulzer X by jamescharlick, on Flickr From above we noticed another group of Urban Tourists had entered the turbine hall below us, and after a few minutes they joined us at the top for a chat before wandering off into the maze of pipes themselves. Fortunately heading down was much easier than up and we made it back to the car without incident. Almost time for the long drive home, save for some nearby trains. Choo chooooo. First report copied on here, let me know if I've done anything silly
