    Petit Paris #01 How can it be possible that a whole family goes missing overnight and abandons their home with everything in it? This time, we will try to answer this question! Somewhere in rural Germany we discovered a vintage home where time has been standing still for several years already. We searched the whole house for clues to find out its story. Petit Paris #14 For our first road trip of the year, we decided to head to the Austrian Alps. It's a long ride to the South and we...

    Hi All On the back of another trip report this is from our Corwall trip back in March. This is the former Mixed mine called Wheal Busy, a massive site there is still an engine house on site and a black smith shop. The main reason I wanted to visit the site was the Brunton calciner, a roasting furnace used to dry and remove the Arsenic minerals from the ore, the ore was roasted and the flue gasses was sent along a long zig-zag passage to allow the Arsenic oxide to form on the sides of the...

    Im surprised that this place does not appear to have been posted on this forum yet... Anyway got to explore this place on a beautiful sunny day. The farm is nestled within very active clay workings belonging to imerys, so therefore is not easily accessible and its a bit of a hike to get there. Some history: The actual farmhouse itself was built in the 1500's and was once part of a larger manor house. The last family to occupy this farm was my friends grandparents who also owned...

    Just looking at a backlog & this place hasnt come up for a while so just thought I would share. The Freemasons Province of Warwickshire became 275 years old in 2003. A banquet was held at the headquarters of the Province in Birmingham on 22 April 2003 to celebrate this most significant event Following the resignation of Michael Clarke, Sir Stanley Harley took over the leadership of the Province and was installed on 30 November 1965 by the Grand Master.

    ABC Cinema The power functioned on the lower floors are partly into the foyer on our first visit, which is when the lit up shots were taken. If you left the lights on for more than 3-4 minutes, a loud alarm would go off so we saved turning them on to the end of our visit. On our second venture, the lights wouldn't work at all. I heard someone else went following us and got them back on again though, so I'm not sure how the situation with them truly is. We'll start with the main...

    Part of the well scattered HAA defences for the Scunthorpe Steel Works. The first constructions were the outer line, done during the 'phoney war' period and always, seemingly, in brick. In the late '50's one would find swaths of barbed wire all over the place and signs of slit trenches for air raid protection. The buildings were there purely to protect ammunition and equipment.

    1. The History On the north bank of a large pond, St Christopher's Well is a man-made grotto is known locally as the 'wishing well'. Measuring 4m in diameter and 2m high, the grotto is fashioned out of volcanic tuffa and lined with cemented rubble stone, inset with ammonites and coloured stones. At the back is a circular well and overflow channel which flows out to the entrance into the pond. Set above the well in the wall of the cave is a three verse poem, reportedly by Huius Nympha Loci and...

    1. The History Searched high and low for info on this one and could find anything. All I know is that it was a former Methodist Church which was then sold off and bought by a man who was a car enthusiast and he used the chapel as his workshop and kept his cars and tractors in the grounds. It appears he passed away and the place has just been left. The church has holes in the roof and its days are surely numbered while the assorted vehicles gently rust away. 2. The Explore Dont normally do...

    1. The History Heavy anti-aircraft battery (HAA) sites were permanent sites consisting of four guns mounted in the centre of their own circular earthen embankment, each of which had concrete lockers for storing ammunition. These four emplacements were evenly positioned in a semi-circular C shape around a central battery command post with the bulge of the C pointing roughly in the opposite direction to the area being defended so as to cover the approach to the target. The command post...

    My god how this place has deteriorated. I went on courses here in the 90's for BT. Advance major works jointing and a couple of computer systems courses. Was always a great laugh especially the bar and snooker room in the main house. Accommodation was in newish blocks down the bottom, built in the 80's I think.

    ** This explore was done before the Coronavirus Lockdown took effect ** History; Goldcrest Business Park has been home to a number of different businesses over the years; Whitminster International, Redler Limited, Klenzeen Limited and, most recently, the Stroud Metal Company. From what I can work out, the whole place has been empty for a number of years with the exception of the Stroud Metal Company, who only moved out back in July 2019. The site appears to be split into different...

    Ahhhh if only I wasn't so mechanically naive! Haha. Weirdly, UrbexDevil, I can't seem to view your photos? Have they moved from your image hosting site or anything, or is the issue my end? I'd love to see your photos as a comparison to mine. Glad you had a good day bud. Are you local to the area?
