Have any of you missed a site: somewhere that was torn down, redeveloped or closed off just before you had the chance to visit and look around?
I had a very quick look at this quarry but it was demolished just before I had planned to go back and climb stuff! :(
Full report is here http://www.lifeoutthere.co.uk/2018/04/18/the-quarry-that-got-away/


What was your "one that got away"?

Ha yes, about 90% of my leads! Somehow I seem to find so many places just a week too late.

Please still put a report up on here - we would appreciate that more than a link ?

Lancaster Moor asylum. Got on site, pressed my nose up to the window to see the amazing murals. Thought I'd sussed the access point and got busted by (friendly) security.

Just two days ago I wanted to visit "The House of the Pianist" in Saarland / Germany. But there was only a meadow today and no house left ...
So far, however, I have mostly been lucky. It has rarely happened to me that a building was already completely demolished. Just a few places were no longer abandoned or sealed and so no longer accessible.

Harold Hill, got there to see demo work had begun & finished ?

 

If I remember correctly, I saw that one and was a bit disappointed. Sure it was being used as a paintball arena at the time.

Myself and @Session9 decided to have a go at Kinmel Hall in North Wales around mid 2014 I think. There were a few silly code names around at the time like "Cuckoo Hall and Lotus Hall" and crap like that. Although looking back at older reports from then nowadays it had some nice features and indeed was a nice looking explore, there's been better appear on the forums before and since BUT, at the time it was a place I really wanted to see but it did have a bit of a reputation for being a difficult one. I was working over in the Shropshire area for a month or so and myself and @Session9 decided to do a bit of a welsh tour from north to south. I remember picking him up from Wolves train station about 7pm or so one Friday and we headed straight across through North Wales and arrived in the dark around 11pm. We navigated along the loooonnnngg path up to the Hall and literally spent the next 12 hours until the late morning trying to gain access. I got into the building at three separate points but it was annoyingly sealed internally at every point, preventing us getting into the main building, staircase, nice bits. Sensor alarms around the back made us jump the first time but after about the 6th time they got a good ignoring. A loudspeaker was rigged up playing Radio 4 or some crap from the front too, but after a couple of laps we realised it was in a loop. Anyway, this is the place that springs to mind when i think of the one that got away, but there has been MANY!. It was difficult walking away defeated and tired and pissed off , but the rest of the weekend working our way down through Wales was a success. Good times that didn't begin as planned but ended up great. Nowadays, the last I heard from the place it was trashed and easy as hell and was definitely a missed opportunity back then.

      Recently I drove over to a town called Clairton in PA. It's about 15 miles away from Pittsburgh. Clairton flourished from the mining of a fuel called coke. It was also the same town the film Deer Hunter was supposed to be filmed in. While things looks great for the town and it’s people, pollution was slowly but surely eating away at the towns people health. Years later when industry left, Clairton stood silent, poor, and broke beyond repair. Large scale cases of cancer sprouted and people soon learned that all the chemicals they were told could do them no harm created a living environment where cancer is now higher in Clairton than that of any other place in the United States. Paradise was truly lost and gave way to abandonment of whole neighborhoods. One of these areas is known as Lincoln Way, an abandoned street of homes. There was a fire years ago there. But the homes were abandoned  a long Tim before the fire. Some speak of a beastly animal prowling the neighborhood forcing residents to flee in  the middle of the night. But I think that's more of a myth like unicorns. Either way it was a really creepy place. An I actually filmed a music video there about suicide awareness. I'm attaching the video and also some pics for you guys to check out. Feel free to send me some feedback on youtube about the video. I film at a lot of different abandoned locations.

      An independent members only club, dedicated to the working man who required a certain place for private meetings and events. 
      This place has a little bit of everything. Dark, creepy unlit rooms, and rooms where light was still flourishing through the gaps and crevices. 
      It has had many aliases since the buildings birth in the 1920's and had less than 300 members.
      Along the many years the workmens club was usually packed full of people, to the point you couldn't even move. 
      Slowly but surely however the club started to lose money as members became scarce. It couldn't pay it's own way and since the number of members started dwindling,
      the Workmans club had to close its doors to the few remaining loyal members. 
      Now sits empty and has done for more than 6 years now.
      Hopefully the building can see new life in the near future, but for me it was good to get an unusual view of the club.
      Cheers for looking!

      As usual with our explores, they are never really a walk in the park. Access to the building itself was a challenge as the top area in which we needed to go was locked off completely. Thankfully, being quite adapted to the tasks at hand, we managed to ride on top of a lift to gain access to the building. 
      Once inside it was clear that the building was in quite a bad state. Natural erosion has started eating away at the 60 year old building, and rust can be found throughout.
      Pigeons were lurking in the crevices and the whole place smelt of damp. 
      The building was a former office block but has been abandoned for 20 or more years.
      Here is some of the best photos we managed to get. Thanks for looking!
