    1. The History RAF North Witham is a former World War II airfield in Lincolnshire, England. The airfield is located in Twyford Wood, off the A1 between Stamford and Grantham. It opened in 1943 and was used by both the RAF and US Army Air Forces. During the war it was used primarily as a transport airfield. It was allocated to the USAAF Troop Carrier Command in August 1943. Its immediate task was to distribute transport aircraft and the means of maintaining them to operational groups of the...

    Intro Following our first visit we decided to head back this time for the control tower on the testing airfield. Explore I'm jumping straight into this one as I went over the history last time with the 3x3 Lab. The actual explore was unusual, with the tower being heavily sealed we had to jump and climb quite a lot to get in. Including a spot of rooftopping. With airfield in use for vehicle storage we had to stay hidden from security. DSC_1709

    Stunning and covered a lot of ground getting those. I kinda feel like some places I've seen in bits of video on YouTube? I dunno though. The schools look massive? The huge place that looks like a cinema - the decay reminds me of lace. The surfaces have a fabric look to them and are beautiful. A stunning set and well taken too. Lovely crisp images. Thanks for sharing.

    There's a lot of dereliction in these schools and a lot of silly grafitti. The inspirational pictures are very good.

    Shame it's so wrecked inside. Would love to see a winter photo of the outside to see what it looks like without all the trees.

    Whilst in Detroit, myself and my little group of explorer friends managed to document a staggering 14 schools over the two and a half days we had criss-crossing the city. It becomes less staggering when you realise that number barely scratches the surface of the abandoned schools scattered around Detroit. Some were crap, some were decent and a few were really very very nice. I won't say much and just let the photos do the talking, my personal favourite schools were all done towards the end...

    Pretty messy this one, needs some housework done to it. The house is surrounded by leaves and bushes that's why it hasn't been demolished, they can't find it.

    That's a nice house with a possible renovation. The staircase is nice and so is the living room and kitchen. Once it had lovely windows but looks like the vandals got there.

    At one time, many years ago this would have been a beautiful hotel because it has art deco features. There's over 50 pictures on her website featuring more of the art deco and the nice staircase. I hope this building is saved.

    Cheers guys, it wasn't the biggest of places, but was nice to do something a bit different. Haha I hadn't noticed that. They may come out looking ridiculous, but at least your ideas were noted.

    The building dates back to 1926, but before it was named the Bay Queen, it was formerly known as Ballaqueeney Hotel. Part of the hotel was demolished in 2001 following its closure in 1994 and subsequent dereliction. It was used to help house internees during World War II. There are plans to convert the hotel into flats and a restaurant. Postcard circa 1946: It was a nice surprise getting in here as I'd tried in the past and there was no access, and I'd pretty much accepted I'd never...

Lol. Love the pics📸, thank you for sharing this. 😀 I might take another mooch soon too. I'm curious as to whether or not you walked those 10 steps? 🧟😄 Lol.
