Built in 1871 but had been refurbished at some point.
Now, I don't do heights.. So I was chuffed to see my mate practically run towards it in excitement and go first. It was pretty high and the grated floor was not ideal if you wanted to avoid looking down.
The tower probably stands around 40-50 ft but exact measurements are unknown at this point.
Apart from the odd clanging of metal under our footsteps and how wobbly it was, it was a good first climb like this for me!
Got some snaps as usual, enjoy!
Hi all. We have invested in a new camera and went out during the night to see how well it can handle the low light images. The result was actually rather impressive! So please enjoy the snaps we managed to get.
It isn't a new area, but it is a good place to get some shots. Feel free to let us know which pic you guys like!
Keep in touch to see some new places real soon. Cheers,
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,
Chateau Marianne / Chateau Alchimiste
Not much history on this location but it was rumoured to be have been once occupied by a former professor. The chateau is located in a small, rural town in France. The town's residents have halved in the last 40 years and it was beginning to look quite run down. I can imagine the nickname 'Alchimiste' (which means Alchemist in French) came from all the chemistry equipment left behind such as: test tubes, syringes, bottles, cylinders and beakers. It seems the previous inhabitant was also a bit of an artist, we found many paintings scattered around the house and a large collection in the attic, as well as a small studio in an upstairs room.
I visited this beautiful chateau on a euro trip with @PROJ3CTM4YH3M. We went the previous night to check to see if it was accessible and boy we were in for a shock! Neither of us realised how much stuff had been left and how interesting the contents were. We both particularly liked the framed butterfly collection which was hung up in one of the living rooms, as it reminded us of the film 'Silence of the Lambs.' After a short investigation we decided to return the following day and booked a hotel in a nearby town. Arriving the next morning once sun had risen, the place was really brought into it's element. So, as always, hope you enjoy my photos!
