    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...

    1. The History Taken from the Cadw Listing database: “The church lies in the central section of the valley, set within its large, rhomboid churchyard on the low-lying valley floor, set back from the road. The church is perhaps seventeenth century in origin, and the centre of a separate parish centred in the Pennant valley. It was considerably altered in the nineteenth century, to designs of Henry Kennedy, architect, of Bangor; its restoration scarcely influenced by gothic revival...

    There's still a few bits of art deco here. I couldn't find any references to Cliff Richard and The Shadows playing there in 1961. But they played at two other Liverpool cinemas in 1962. The Shadows is my favourite band of the 1960s.

    Great find, and fantastic video. I found the remains of a grow in an abandoned pub, but it was only a small pub.

    I've wanted to do this place for years but last time I knew it was open the hole was too small for a fat lad so I had to wait a little longer. Finally got the heads up from Mr Blacksnake that it was fat lad accessible once more so along with Porky pig we went for an early morning mooch HISTORY (Stolen from the interweb) This was originally called Eddesbury, built about 1885 - one of the last grand mansions constructed in West Derby. Occupying the site of an earlier house, it was the home...
