This place is not too far from where I live. i have heard all about it's history and decided to have a look inside and get some photos of the building itself. The place is an absolute death trap, ceiling's fallen through, water ingress all over etc. It started early life in 1900 as a roman catholic orphanage until 1940 when it became an approved borstal until 1984. During this period there has been reports of physical and sexual abuse which happened at St. Peter's over the years. in 1984 the school closed down and was sold for £130,000. The buyers bought the buildings and converted the main building into a nursing home for the elderly. Again this was in operation until closure in march 1999. The main building was demolished in 2016 due to a massive 9 hour fire and is only the gymnasium and the reception building that remain on the premises.
As you can see in the photos the building is severely damaged due to dampness and vandalism.
Information about this small church is hard to find. It was built in the middle of the 19th century and is abandoned since the late 1960's.

Just a quick one this time, we decided to visit an old abandoned boatyard which also had an old car place inside as well. We couldn't find to much history on this one however it was nicely buried away in some trees/bushes along the side of the South Coast.
Hope you enjoy the footage!

Hello urban explorers.
I have lately been discovering the world of urban exploring, and have some great experiences solo exploring 'haunted' areas at night. The kind of adrenaline coming from visiting such place alone at night is terrifying yet very satisfying. I wish to keep up with my new hobby, but I have trouble finding places with a horror story which are not abaondoned. Perhaps it may seem lazy to 'just ask' it this way, but I can asure that I have been spending quite some days to pinpoint the right locations (it's always a far drive coming from the Netherlands).
For the next week I will make a roadtrip from my home town Coevorden in the Netherlands to Belgrado in Serbia. I am hoping somebody may have experience or a story about a 'haunted' place across my route.
After hearing about the permanent closure of this well known super store giant, we felt like a part of our childhood was gone forever.
In the store we visited, we found the names of those loyal workers written on the wall with one of those people having worked there for 20 years,
but unfortunately we couldn't go back and get a photo due to my camera running out of juice.
But all is not lost as there is a full video on my friend's youtube channel so check it out!
Here are the best photos we managed to get, thanks for looking.
