St John the Baptist church, Slebech - 11/05/08 - Report.

Recommended Posts

St John the Baptist church has been shut for a while now.

Visited this with hood_mad and captian slow (almost).

This church has an interesting but sad history. Locally, common legend has it that the architect that designed the church did so with the altar facing in the wrong direction. Apparently when he realised he hung himself in the bell tower.

The church is pretty well sealed, there are some entrances, but as time was tight because we were on our way to do the airfield, we didn't go into the main hall, just the crypt and the boiler room.

3 Long tombs and 1 smaller one.

Not much here, but the crypt is really spooky, lol.

      Hello  . I wanted to ask you, I will buy a new phone and I don't know which would be the best for taking pictures in abandoned places. What about Huawi P20 pro? Camera - 40MP.
      Today I have camera with 24MP 😂. Thank so much for help!

      The secrets of the legendary catacombs of Paris, a tunnel system that spans more than 280km in length.
       
      The catacombs in Paris hold remains of more than six million people. They are part of a tunnel network that runs below Paris that is more than 280 kilometers long. No one knows how far the tunnels extend in total, as there are still many paths that are unmapped and even undiscovered. The main reason behind the tunnels was to extract  Lutetian limestone for use as a building material. For instance, parts of the Louvre, the Place de la Concorde and Les Invalides were built with limestone from this tunnel system.
       
      The catacombs only take up about 2.1km of the tunnel system and they are the only part that is legally accessible. Even though that is the case, many people refer to the surrounding tunnel network when speaking about the "Catacombs of Paris".
       
      The ossuary was created in the late 1700s to tackle the problem of overflowing cemeteries and until the early 19th century, the ossuary was largely forgotten until it became a novelty place for concerts and other private events.
      The network is mostly intact today and is regularily toured by urban explorers or so called "Cataphiles".
       
      If anyone is curious about the way we took, the names of the rooms we went into and a bit of a sidestory, here's the full post (warning: It's damn long and I feel it would overcrowd the forums)
       
      Also, even though I posted a lot of photos, these are not all, so feel free to check out the rest of them if anyone has gotten curious.

      An abandoned beacon in the baltic sea. There are two of it. One 1000m and the other one in 4000m distance from the runway.
      Ther were used to enlarge the range of the runway ...so the pilots could navigate easier to the short runway.
       
      Build and used by the NVA. The army of the former GDR... (DDR).
