  1. Ok, sometimes you pass a location that may not completely deserve a report on it's own, but well, since you're there, you decide to quickly take some snaps. Located only a few hundred meters from "The Chapel" in a tiny village with only 400 people we found this place by accident. A bit of history; In 1744 a wooden church was build for the evangelic community of Alt Jäschwitz. For some reason, in 1842 the wooden church was replaced by a new concrete church and was converted into a Lutheran church. They finished building the new church in 1844. In 1945, after the war, the church was abandoned simply because the Polish people that moved back into this area were catholic and didn't want to pray in a German church. Nowadays it's in a state beyond repair, but some tiny details inside still give you the impression that it once must have been a nice place. It's on the list of monuments in Poland, but it's unlikely it will ever get restored to it's former glory. Below two pictures taken in 1917 & 1919, showing the church and it's former beauty; Ok, definitely not my best set of images, but well, here we go; 1# 2# 3# 4# 5# 6# 7# 8# 9# 10# 11# 12# 13# 14# Thanks for watching!

  3. Local Special school, closed 1st July 2001, eerie place to wander around as despite its lengthy derp time there still alot to see about the place. Having worked in a similar enviroment it was a bit of a personal trip down memory lane as despite the massive differences in time, residential care for autism (scarily) Hasnt evolved that much! Loved the playground, Thanks to Bango for the tip for this one! Still smiling...
  4. Sadly i cant find much about this place all that i know is it is part of the Borough Mill triangle & is due to be demmo`d soon to make way for re-develpoment.. I think down the years many companys have come & gone here because there are few different names still up on the wall but its obvious that majority of the building was used for car/motorcycle salvage... Quite trashed but a good mooch. thanks..
  5. 201 Ok so I thought my previous report was going to be my last but I thought why not put some old ones up to just continue contributing etc. Visited last november on a very chilly night, within weeks of news it was to close.
  6. First ever mine tour. Watched Descent the night before like a knob... This place has been reported a few times but not for 12 months and i have different pics Being pocket-size Rules!!!! Flooded section.. never seen water so still it was almost like glass... I havent done this location justice unfortunately because it went really far back and looked so so deep, i found out later that there has been diving there int he past so i assume it must be pretty fucking deep!!! there were alot of rock falls and judging by previous reports quite recent too...
  7. This Large Northern Asylum is a Category B Listed Building and closed in various stages from 1999, there are still parts being shut down, so hopefully more to explore soon! This is very local to me, only a few minutes drive, should really visit it more often! These are pics from two different adventures, one with a couple non members, but both times with Scattergun The building is split into two sections, so lets start with the front Now lets look at the less explored and harder to get into rear! Thanks for looking!!
  8. My first ever explore at the tender age of 16 with a Halina Elektra 35mm. This camp was demolished in 1975 and me and my mate took these whilst trying to keep away from the warden..it is a small album,but back in the day,the cost of photography was high so we only shot minimal! My Grandfather used to drive a single decker bus from Swindon to Marlborough during WW2 and in his break in Marlborough,he would visit many of the public houses and often drove his bus back to Swindon quite inebriated and one night,he drove back through this camp forgetting he had a double decker and not his usual single deck bus..at one point there was a crash and he discovered he had hit some power cables that were too low for his bus .... So that was Chiseldon Camp..I grew up playing round here from 1968 to 1975..even found Sub machine guns in one loftspace plus gas masks,which I still have. Thanks for looking
  9. When we were in Poland in June '12, we got a major opportunity to visit this awesome Powerplant… This power plant has been explored by many polish urbexers, even though it's still partly in use. They all managed to sneak in during the weekend, but unfortunately, when we in Poland, our weekend was already filled up with other obligations. So we decided to simply give them a call to see if there was an opportunity to visit it legally. After a few phone calls we managed to speak to the operations manager, who told us that visits are simply not allowed, unless you have a written approval from the plant owners. (A finnish company) Fortunately for us, she told us that the next day a group of photographers from France were coming in, after they spent about 2 months trying to get the approvals and permits. The only problem was that she needed to show them around and explain the history of the plant to them in English… She wasn't very happy to do this, so we could make her a nice deal; We'll translate your story from Polish to English, if we can join the tour... Luckily for us, she accepted the deal.. Since we were about 400km away from the plant when we called them, we needed to wake up early and leave at 3.30am in order to make it to the plant on time.. Luckily we made it and could spent a good few hours wondering around this awesome location. A bit of history; The coal fired combined Heat and Power Plant has been an landmark for Bytom since it was opened on 29 November 1920. The investor and the first owner of the power plant was the German company Schaffgotsh Bergwerksgesellschaft GmbH, belonging to the Upper Silesian family line of the Schaffgotschs. With an output of 100 MW power it once belonged amongst the greatest combined power plants in Europe. The 2 chimney's of the plant, reaching 120 meters into the air, are Europe's highest brick chimney's without additional support, still standing today. When we visited, the lady told us the plant would be decommissioned in the first quarter of 2013, as all production would be taken over by a new nearby plant. Hopefully we'll be able to stop by quickly next time we're in Poland, since there were still a few areas we didn't get to see.. Here are a couple of the shots I managed to take in this awesome location: 1# 2# 3# 4# 5# 6# 7# 8# 9# 10# A few more shots available on my Flickr page! http://www.flickr.com/photos/urbexosaurus/ Thanks 4 watching!!
  10. Severalls Hospital, a large Edwardian asylum, opened in 1913 for 1800 patients. It is based on the "echelon plan", which is a specific arrangement of wards, offices and services within easy reach of each other by a network of interconnecting corridors. Villas were constructed around the main hospital building as accommodation blocks between 1910 and 1935. Most of the buildings are in Neo Georgian style, with few architectural embellishments as a rule. The hospital closed in 1997 following the movement of the closures of other psychiatric institutions during the period. The remaining structures have changed little architecturally and it remains a fine example of this specific asylum plan.We visited the site march 18th 2008 and had a brilliant explore.the coridoors are awesome and for me,the water tower was the icing on the cake..many thanks to Neil for the guided tour. So that was Sevs..superb explore plus tunnel escape into the woods straight in to the arms of a cute WPC! Thanks for looking.
