My last foray with exploring this year ended with beauty.

After a stupid amount of driving over the previous days, I was shattered, driving from as far south as I've been before, driving to Wales to drop of Lowri an then heading ver to the Midlands to get some rest with Project Mayhem who kindly put me up for the night. I set off to Chaise Abbey after some a tip off from AndyK, I was off as soon as I woke to get it done before the tour bus arrived.

After a well deserved McDonalds, I arrived at my parking location and set off on a long convoluted route I chose as the one that would keep me away from any game keepers and locals. Apart from acting like a gun dog and rising up a few pheasants, well 200 or so, I eventually reached the outsite the Abbey and it was a glorious site.



Quickly finding a way in, there were many ways I saw from my initial walk around, I was in and decided nervous about being inside, there was a lot of rotten floors and joists; stairs had collapsed, floors collapsed, but work had been ongoing and looked safe enough to carry on.

Quickly finding my way around, I find the room most come to see and the name of the location - the Chaise Longue Room


The main hall


Grand Staircase


Some of the furniture and Fireplaces were outstanding.

Really enjoye this nice relaxed explore, spent a couple hours inside, and had a long walk back to the motor.


Thanks for looking!

      Falcon house. It's been in Swindon since the early days of this towns birth and has been sat empty and abandoned for 16 years.  
      It was said to be the very first headquarters for the well known company zurich, an insurance company, but was promptly moved to a more practical and efficient property.
      The old office block is situated in Swindon town centre on top of a car park right near the entrance to town, which is an eye sore to some but a worthy explore for us. 
      There was nothing much left, only old phones and some really old school computer stuff. 
      It was the view at the end of the video that made it all worth it, being the second highest point in the town aside from the john murray building.  What a view! 
      So please enjoy this video by my good friend and make sure to check out the channel! Have fun out there,

      Snowdown was the deepest colliery in Kent reaching well over 3,000 ft (915 metres). It was also the hottest and most humid pit in Kent and was given the name 'Dante's Inferno' by the miners. Regarded by many as the worst pit to work at in Britain, most Snowdown miners worked naked because clothes became too uncomfortable. The miners could consume around 24 pints (14 lires) of water in an 8-hour shift. There were frequent cases of heat stroke.

      Snowdown closed in 1987

      What's left of the south marston hotel, remains an empty, scorched shell. Not much to see on this one, and I am way to late but hey, it still provides an eerie vibe. And the photos came out pretty good too. Thanks,

      Predannack opened in 1941 as an RAF base, but today is the satellite airfield to RNAS Culdrose - it is a restricted MOD site and an active airfield used daily for flying training and also provides our Fire Fighting training facility. The area is heavily utilised by Culdrose helicopter squadrons, light fixed wing aircraft and, on an occasional basis by other aircraft types including jet aircraft, for a variety of reasons. Predominantly crews are involved in intensive training sorties involving a high cockpit workload. On average there is in excess of 2000 aircraft moves a month at the unit. The airfield is also used by the Fire Training School for live fire fighting and rescue instruction/exercises and there is also a rifle range at Predannack which is frequently used for live weapon firings. Additionally the airfield is used for a variety of additional tasks when the Control Tower is unmanned e.g. gliding.
