Hi Guys, been a while since i done a report so thought would post one from a recent explore.

Can't really find much information on this place but it's very local to me and been told that it has been closed for around 5 years now and was closed do to health and safety.

I have put a water mark on my photo's because i have recently had photos stolen and used on a group on facebook.

On with the Photos.























Thanks for Looking :)

Hi, some lovely composition going on here. Could maybe do with a variation in lenses for the different subjects but to say I would imagine you used a standard lens for this they all look pretty neat. However, one thing I would highly suggest if you are taking your photography seriously (which it sees you are) is to sort your white balance out. These photographs are far too yellow, which is obviously due to the light that was available, but maybe next time take a small flash gun and diffuser. But definitely get on photoshop and correct the colour tone of these images and you'll see a drastic difference.

Also, may I ask how you entered this place? I was photographing grimsby recently and got a great shot from the outside but didn't dare see if I could enter.

Ellie you'll need to establish yourself on the forum a bit first before you can expect people to divulge information like that. Stick an introduction up in the new members section (http://www.oblivionstate.com/forum/forumdisplay.php/32-Just-take-a-moment-amp-say-Hi) and get some reports up and people might be a bit more forthcoming with helpful tips :thumb

Ps. You've set the bar quite high for your photography skills, let's see what you've got :D

Gotta love a play area. A few years ago there was an abandoned shopping centre in reading that was being regularly explored, and that had a kids soft play area as well. Most people went just to dick about in there. :thumb

      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.
