Weird Urbex Occurrences

Recommended Posts

Howdy guys and girls.

Talk of the paranormal is usually ridiculed in these circles but have any of you experienced anything weird and creepy whilst on an explore?

The only creepy thing I can think of on any of my explores was an old brewery in Lancaster. There was me, Scrappy and BB mooching about. We entered the building near the roof and made our way down to the basement taking pics as we went. However, nearing the end of the explore we clearly heard footsteps on the floor above us. If I remember rightly we made sure we weren't followed in and we covered the access. So by rights, there was only us 3 in the building. It was enough to make me feel spooked and was quite happy to get out of there.

Really want to do that brewery! Probably bored anyone who's been exploring with me with this one but the very first time i got into St Josephs Orphanage & was pretty new to exploring, to my shame had been shown access by the local emo kids (hey i REALLY wanted to see this place). Went back late at night when they would of all been tucked up in bed & it involved dropping through a hole in the roof of what i presumed was some sort of boiler room or storeroom to find that the door in front of me was nailed shut from the side i was trying to open it from so found that pretty weird for a start as it meant whoever had nailed it shut would of had to exit from the ballache access that i had just entered from. Luckily there was a window thing (don't know if there is a technical name for it) above the door & was perched on top of there for a good 5 minutes trying to work out if i would be able to get back out & heard what at first sounded like a creaky wheelchair coming closer & then turned into some sort of wailing sound, needless to say i was out of there like a shot but later decided that it must of been a cat or something. Have heard plent other noises in that place but most could be explained away as 'just the wind' & none have been as unnerving as that. Interesting that it was in the nursing home bit that i haven't been able to access since...

The 1st explore I went on, I was on my own in an old asylum. I was leisurely exploring the place and all was quiet. I was aware of an active security 'team' so I had my ears open for them. Anyway as I went into a small-ish boiler/pipe room I clearly heard a door make a long creak open and then slam shut with a thud. Then I heard shuffling footsteps coming in my direction. I froze and hid behind the door waiting for the inevitable. I was playing out the scenario of being caught over in my head as the footsteps got louder and closer. As they neared the door I was hiding behind I held my breath and waited. The footsteps stopped right outside my door...I waited....and waited...eventually I poked my head around the corner of the door, still expecting security to be stood there with their arms folded waiting for me to appear....but there was nobody! The corridor was empty! I was out of that within 5 seconds!!

Haha just typing this here has made my heart start beating like mad!!

This place needs no intro! I was a tad reluctant to put this up, as paranormal stuff just don't cut the mustard with a lot of folk. It was just a normal day's exploring really. Armed with the usual gear....Camera, tripod, charged battery etc. We headed straight for the famous staircase.

1st shot of the day, and this is the original picture. The figure in shadow is actually the caretaker.... But It's what's behind him that freaked me out! Because whatever it is.... It wasn't there when I took the shot. And at this point my battery went dead

The following are the same shot but zoomed in, the quality deteriorates I'm afraid. It looks like an old man to me! Could this be the ghost of St Johns?

That is seriously creepy if it's as you say it is, almost along the lines of a 'too good to be true' photo.

When I was in Denbigh a few years ago a group of six of us all witnessed a door swing open and closed by itself with no wind or other sources of drafts.I also heard the distinct sounds of boots walking down one of the corridors in West Park but there was nobody there. Also in West Park, in one of the wards at the back of the site (Huxley I think) I was stood at the nurses station looking out into it and saw the figure of an elderly woman stood in the doorway that lead to the toilet block, I was as shocked as anything and by the time I regained my composure she was gone.

All the hospitals and asylums I have visited I have only ever felt a sense of peace in, never anything bad. However two locations stand out as giving particularly bad vibes (or the heebie jeebies). The infamous animal testing labs of the British Industrial Biological Research Association in Carshalton which had a palpable dark 'energy' to it, I don't think I've ever explored somewhere that has made me feel quite so bad as that place, a truly oppressive atmosphere if there was ever proof needed for one. The other location that sprung to mind was the Al-Tech Steelworks in Albany, New York that I visited with a mate after dark last September. I don't know what it was in that place, but as soon as we got in we both agreed that we felt like 'something' didn't want us to be there - this also coming from my mate who had explored this place on numerous occasions at all times of day and night before. For whatever reason it gave off a seriously threatening atmosphere,the darkness inside the buildings seemed much more black than it should have been and after about half an hour of wandering around getting ourselves disorientated we both agreed that we needed to get out of there. I'd happily go back in the daytime, but not at night again.

      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
       
       
      History
       
      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. 
       
      Visit
       
      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!

      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,

      After hearing about the permanent closure of this well known super store giant, we felt like a part of our childhood was gone forever.
      In the store we visited, we found the names of those loyal workers written on the wall with one of those people having  worked there for 20 years,
      but unfortunately we couldn't go back and get a photo due to my camera running out of juice.
      But all is not lost as there is a full video on my friend's youtube channel so check it out!

      Here are the best photos we managed to get, thanks for looking.
