    RAF polebrook is all but invisible on google now but there is still a few secrets to be found! The airfield was built on Rothschild estate land starting in August 1940. It was from Polebrook that the United States Army Air Forces' Eighth Air Force carried out its first heavy bomb group (Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress) combat mission on 17 August 1942, and from which Major Clark Gable flew combat missions in 1943. looming out the woods the first thing you come across is a lovely old...

    An old original estate workers cottage - The rope bed indicates that this place may have been lived in by one of the 100's of ex WW1 soldiers who roamed about these parts and the New Forest after WW1. The items on the table are certainly from that period.

    Yes yes I know I shouldnt be out exploring but as as seasoned explorer & NEBOSH trained H & S guy I risk assessed this & thought yeah Im more likely to get injured in my half renovated house at home. So as some of u will know I like birds & wildlife photography & I did a highly recommended falconry day at Holdenby Hall some years ago & vaguely remember this place. but then completely forgot about it! Another long distance isolation walk led me right by this so would of been rude not to. ...

    I can't remember too much about it - it's an age thing dontcha know! But here's link to the report I did on it at the time and within which there are a few underground photos. I can't say it's the same ladder - in fact I seriously doubt it given the length of time since we went there. It's a great little site. Grain Fort and Grain Battery.

    Maison 3 Suisses #01 Late For Dinner After time had been standing still here for 30 years, we were the first who enter this forgotten house in a while. This narrow building located in rural Belgium was home to a former banker who vanished into the night. As it seems, he was doing some shady business. He needed to run and left behind everything. Since then, the abandoned house is preserved as a time capsule from a different era. Join us on today's exploration while we search for clues to find...

    We looked for it but didn't really have any idea where we needed to look, I have since figured out where the entrances are though so it's just a case of getting back there. That ladder been there long then? So many random bits of rope and cable ties holding it to the chain

    Did you do the underground stuff on shore very close by? It's ages since I did this place but we got down part of the tunnels. The battery itself hasn't changed much has it! Surprised to see a ladder is still on the wall though.

    While in the area at another location, it made sense to check out Benenden Hospital out before embarking on the long journey home. Another site that had been high on the list for quite some time. Although the site still stands, it has long been stripped out and notices around the perimeter fencing suggest it was due for demolition pending planning permission back in late 2019 which was later denied and subsequently still stands. Unfortunately most buildings were locked shut, and with the...

    I had an urge to get something I havenít done ticked off the list and this time was an abandoned train. Through all the years of exploring, this is the first train explore for me. Exploring again with CapturePhotography and setting off at a reasonable mid morning time with a pleasant 24c heat behind us, we made our way to Kent in search of the trains. For the first time in years we bumped into a few other explorers too which made for a nice change and a convenient hint on access. The...

    Nicely done. When I first moved to Aberdeen in the late 1970s that's where I spent most of my days at the pool. It's just how I remembered it. Pity about the grafitti though.

    Bon Accord Baths Bon Accord Baths was constructed to provide a centrally located public baths in Aberdeen, as previously the public bathed at baths overlooking Aberdeen beach.

    Very nice shots,and makes me realise how much I didn't see. Was it hard moving around? When I went there a few years ago, it was a nightmare with everything boarded up well, and they even nailed up the doors inside, between rooms.

    From what I understand, the "process" of closing it and turning it into the logistics hub has taken far longer than anticipated, as a result, there has been the odd event here and there. Drifting takes place outside the venue in an old car park section I believe, They've been told a few times to expect an eviction but it hasn't happened yet.

    I went watched the Indycar race they held here, trouble was it kept spitting so they had to keep putting out yellows so they could dry the track. It was a bit of a let down, shame. Didn't realise it had closed
