    My mates keep saying that I need to get my ass in gear & post some of the many many unreported places I have & this is one has become a bit of a saga. Not explored that long ago but Iv had the pics on & off flickr for a few weeks for reasons Ill explain later. Ok what do I know about this place? not a lot Im afraid from when it was a chapel but this is all I can find. The site has been used as part of the Primitive Methodist movement since 1874 when an iron chapel was opened on...

    Here's a derelict house down this one road, close to home that I never went down during my early days exploring. I came across it, to my surprise in early March, it didn't look very promising at all. However, with everything that was going on at the time, I soon decided to set off very early in the morning to take a look around it with my Fujifilm Camera while I had the chance. It was the very last time I went out before lock-down happened. The first thing I hoped to do by the time it ended was...

    Yeah there's a used car place next to it now - luckily it's just a storage yard there's no permanent staffing there, although when I was on the roof it was total sods law that a car decided to drive in lol!

    Ayup, The attic was my fave place in here, the light was excellent. If I'm honest we weren't really allowed up there either lol. Do you have any idea what the room 3rd from last in my pics was used for? the one with all the pics on the far wall?

    Cheers mate. Much appreciated. Yup. Realise I just scratched the surface with this one and that there are so many more places to do.

    Good selection of shots, they've cleared lots of Hunter welly and Tredaire underlay-related stuff out of the buildings in the past year or two, and last time I went past I spotted a used car lot at the side of the building (ironically!)

    Fascinating - I actually worked at Margaret Beavan as a supply teacher there during the spring term of 1987. I also went a back a few times for meetings just before the school closed. I see that you appear to have made it up into what looks like the attic. When I was there that was out of bounds to the children and even staff were reluctant to go up there and I never did!

    Whilst up in Scotland on our way to do a collection whilst heading back homeward bound I spotted this hulking great lump of a factory off in the distance and knew immediately that we'd have to come back to it after getting the work done. From the road it looked very inviting and after some quick consulting with the lord of knowledge that is Google I quickly found what it once was. The Arrol-Johnston Company operated originally as Mo-Car Syndicate Ltd., a joint venture between George Johnston...

    Anyone thinking of heading here might want to delay their plans a bit. The preservation people caught a load of pikeys burning plastic off cables and cutting stuff up in the shafts the other day, the fire damage is pretty bad and it's not a place to be right now.

    Hi All A nice little solo trip to this mine south of Bristol, getting out of the heat of the day and in to the cool. Sandford Levvy is a horizontal adit. 450m long, running south into the hill. Two crossroads provide short but interesting detours and some difficult climbing in excavated upward extensions, In 1830, a Mr. Webster, dug the adit in an attempt to locate a worthwhile ore body. A find of galena was reported and small veins of blende can still be found. The above info is from...

    Thank you :) I was looking up the stained glass to see if I could find out more information and I came across a scouting history blog with a recent picture of the scout piece. It seems to have had quite a lot of work done and the scouts uniform is now a strong dark blue - the author of the blog noted it was strange to have a blue uniform(!) I’m happy to have a reasonable record of the windows before they had the work done.

    Recently I was given the chance to go up to the furthest far reaches of Scotland with one of my friends to do a delivery and of course the plan was to get all the work done and then do a few explores afterwards and on the way home whilst collecting other things. On the drive up I lost count of the amount of derelict buildings I pinned on my phone to check out but unfortunately due to the timings and having to do collections we only got around a few places. It was an incredible roadtrip though,...

    This little chapel is part of the Crawfordton estate. The present house in the estate was built in the 1860s as a private residence. In 1940 it was converted for use as a prep school, taking in pupils evacuated from Belmont House school in East Renfrewshire during the war. It was run as Crawfordton House school until closure in 1995. At this point Cademuir International School for high ability and high potential learners purchased the estate. The school was forced to close in 2006...

    Super report Hughie, this is one of my all time favourite explores. North Wales is littered with places like this but none are as big or as heart poundingly good as Maenofferen. It literally takes your breath away, from the walk up to the Mills, the sight of the Rhiwbach No 3 incline up to the Rhiwbach tramway and the mine itself. The underground section you walked was the mills level and has been abandoned for many a year. If you had walked a tad further you would have come to the top of an...

    History As an overview: "The theatre officially opened 10 December 1900 and was last in use as a bingo hall in 2008. The original capacity was 2,000 seated, this was increased to 3,000 in 1910. It has been placed on the market by its current owners Palatial Leisure Limited" Less than a year after opening, in 1901, the theatre began showing films and in 1913 it was granted a cinema licence. The owner/managers, Messrs J. P. Moore & Montague Beadyn, also increased the capacity in 1910 from...
