Nothing special but a nice wander round and a well needed bit of exercise after all that bloody food

Visited with Slim,
To the Jim.

 

Early morning,
The sun was just dawning,
A pattering of paws we did hear,
As the falcon we drew near.

 

A dog sniffling by my feet,
I begin to taste defeat,
A torch passing overhead,
Still we stay dead.

 

Footsteps in front of us fall,
A whistle,
No longer does the dog us eyeball,
Face down in thistle.

 

Still we lay,
light moves further away,
fuck we utter in unison,
this space ship is a toxin.

 

To the exit we do go,
Vehicle headlights behind us do glow,
In the forest we do collapse,
Jim his go pro he does not find,
Our fate is signed.

 

In again we go,
Fingertip searching,
Jim finds his go pro,
Forward I go jogging.

 

Through the trees,
I begin to wheeze,
There I see it before my eyes,
Space ship from the darkness rise.

 

Dogs begin to bark,
Bringing an end to this lark,
Engine begins to roar,
Time to go I know the score.

Why a silly old music box you may ask?

 

I had a child free night last night. Going to bed I tripped up on this, which when she is around I end up cursing to myself whilst I nurse a sore foot.

 

Last night it just reminded how much I missed her, so this time I just picked up and snapped a picture.

      So this place has nothing now but  memories and juvenile grafitti 
      The Witch Ball Inn was popular with the army guys in the 1940s, due to its proximity to Prees Heath airfield. In particular the Americans stationed there took a special liking to it. And yet after that there's very little on the place. It boasted an impressive function room and a now filled-in swimming pool,  At some point in the 1980s the building came under new ownership and the name changed to The Cherry Tree Hotel. The swimming pool was actually converted into a fish pond, and a fountain was installed in the bar area. The pub was visited by Michael Cain whenever he was in the area visiting his daughter.  it closed down, around 2005 was boarded up and then was consequentially plundered and trashed.

      A night in the Paris Metro
       
       
      My first report for a while and I felt that my photos from each location wouldn't create a substantial enough report. Because of this I decided to compile them into a more lengthy post documenting the night in which we explored various sections of the Paris Metro. I hope you enjoy reading my story and seeing the images I managed to capture.
       
      After arriving in Paris with @Letchbo for a short weekend break, we decided to begin our night of exploring by hitting a classic metro spot. Once we'd safely entered the area we wanted to photograph, we hid in an alcove for a short period of time. Patiently waiting for the end of service with front row seats to watch the last remaining trains hurl past us. As soon the service concluded for the night, we eagerly got our cameras out and started shooting. Fortunately we managed to grab a couple of decent photos before we heard what we presumed were track workers approaching nearby. We quickly concluded it was best to abort mission and keep moving ahead. Photographing sections of track  as we progressed down the line, until we reached the next station and swiftly departed unnoticed. By the time we were back out above ground the night was still young and we headed  onto our next location.

      We'd visited this spot earlier in the year along with @Conrad and @DirtyJigsaw after visiting another of Paris' famous ghost stations. But when we arrived at this one, we noticed a large number workers across the tracks and decided to give it a miss. Fast forward to October, we thought try our luck again. My partner made his way over the fence but as I was about to climb in and join him, someone abruptly stopped me in my tracks.

      "Bonsoir!"

      "Bonsoir?"

       The rather authoritative looking chap approached me and continued speaking to me in French (to which I didn't fully understand.) I politely explained we were English. He then proceeded to pull a badge out and clearly stated to me the word every urban explorer wants to hear on a night out exploring the metro.

       "Police."

       Oh fuck. 

      That's when we thought the night had sadly come to a prompt conclusion. Fortunately for us after a brief discussion with us claiming to be photographing the canal, he decided to allow us to resume our business and once he was well out of sight we made our way straight in. 
       
      Onto a bit of history, Arsenal station was officially opened in 1906 and is located in the 4th arrondissement of Paris. In addition to this, it is also situated on line 5 between the Bastille and Quai de la Rapée stations. After 33 years of operation, it was closed in 1939 at the start of the Second World War. This was due to French resistance members allocating the area as an ammunition depot. Once Paris had been liberated from German forces August of 1944, a battle more commonly known as Battle for Paris and Belgium. It was decided reopening Arsenal would be inefficient. This was on account of its close proximity to neighbouring stations which limited the flow of passengers. For 75 years the station has been largely abandoned aside from graffers, urban explorers, photographers and avid thrill seekers, such as ourselves. 
       
       
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      Once we'd grabbed a few shots of the abandoned Arsenal Station, we continued photographing another small section of track further down the line. It was quite photogenic and was a welcomed bonus to what had already been a predominately successful night for the both of us.
       
       
       

       

       
       
      Before long the morning was fast approaching, coinciding with the threat of the  service resuming. We reluctantly called it a night, making our way out and back to our accommodation, covered in metro dust and feeling pretty relieved we managed to pull it all off after a few close encounters. 
       
       
      As always if you got this far, thanks for reading

      Hi everyone.
      I am Craig, I am English but live in the Netherlands (right up the top right part). I have been interested in old places for a while. Just did not realise it was a "Thing"
      I travel tracks and trails around Europe and love stumbling across old places off the beaten track.
