    Could make a great home conversion if allowed to add windows. The tunnel would be a temp controlled wine store, with glass doors facing into the lounge or kitchen area. I would love to find a place like this in the SW to convert in to a home.

    Tetrosyl Headquarters This Victorian property was formerly Walmersley Dye Works before it was taken over by Tetrosyl in the 1960s. The company was founded within Bury and Rochdale, and the CEO shows passion to keep a part of the now international brand where it started. Tetrosyl is the biggest manufacturer and supplier of car care products in Europe and the UK's largest oil blender, reaching out to over 100 countries. 80 jobs were moved to Rochdale town centre around 2014, as the...

    CCCP Flight School #03 Constructed by the Nazis, this former military area near Berlin is a ghost town today. Back then, this was a restricted zone, and soldiers made sure no civilian came near the place. And today? Still a restricted zone. But at least you will not get shot anymore if you try to enter the area. Planned by the Kaiser, greatly extended by the Nazis and mostly used by the Red Army this military area was home to soldiers from three different empires. When the last units moved...

    That's really interesting to hear, I wouldn't have had a chance in even guessing the make/model so thanks for the insight! Currently you aren't able to receive PM's but you may try and message me if you wish :)

    I'm slightly embarrassed to know admit to knowing this, but the Combine Harvester is a 1960's Claas Matador "Standard" (I think). When I was growing up, the Local Farmer had a Matador "Gigante'" which was the "sports/ super duper/special edition" of it's day fitted with all the bells & whistles. :playful: Happy, carefree days. Do you mind if I ask whereabouts in Norfolk these are? I haven't seen one in years, PM me? (They've all survived this long, I'd hate to see them vandalised now).

    1. The History Not a vast amount of info on the net about this place Situated in the picturesque Cambridgeshire village of Elton the Water mill on the River Nene dates from pre-1800 but in the early 19th century it was extended and rebuilt, as indicated by the carving of 'AD 1840' on gable plaque. Used for grinding corn, the mill is 3 storeys high with an attic. Its iron and wooden waterwheel measured approximately 14 feet in diameter and 12 feet wide and remains place today with water...

    1. The History Not a massive amount of history on this place. Located on Penistone Road, Sheffield, this old industrial building, and those in close proximity used to be home to North British Steel Works. Over the years they have been split up into a number of smaller units. One occupier in recent times has been Namsbury Engineering, a Steel fabricator and general engineer. Incorporated in 1966, creditors put the company into liquidation in May 2013 and the company dissolved six years later in...

    1. The History Annesley Hall, near Annesley in Nottinghamshire, is a Grade II listed country house. The Hall dates from the mid-13th century and was the ancestral home of the Annesley family before passing to the Chaworth-Musters. Alice Chaworth, heiress to the Manor of Annesley, married George Chaworth. The Chaworth family then owned the house for the next 350 years. Mary Chaworth, who lived at the Hall in the late 1700s/early 1800's, was the boyhood lover of the poet Lord Byron, but she...

    A lovely set of photos. Such a shame to see a sturdy, once-loved family home just being left to decay. I hope it can be sold on and rescued.

    Awesome pics. This place is fairly close to a friend of mine so am hoping to be able to have a walk around, even if it's just round the grounds, soon ☺

    Welcome to my first post! This wasn't so much an explore - more something I stumbled upon by chance as part of a walk I was doing. These vehicles are all on display very publicly as they sit on a public right of way. I was therefore surpised to see how they'd decayed naturally and had not been the subject of vandalism. The first car I saw was this Morris Minor 1000.

    There's quite a lot of stuff there. If you're looking for dates of when it was abandoned look at newspapers, calendars and expirey dates on food stuffs. It will give you some clues. I noticed on one newspaper "Car of the year 1980", so that's a clue. I noticed in one bedroom a teenage girl might have occupied it and maybe a small boy. I wonder where they are and maybe wish sell the contents to an auction.

    A trip down memory lane. Here's the last place i'll share for now, i've still got a few other explores i'll share on here in a few weeks. I'll try and get their write-ups detailed as possible like I did with this report here. I've spent a part of the lock-down typing up my good 2015 / 2016 exploring memories, trying to remember everything in as much detail as possible. I thought the days of finding random undocumented places like these out of the corner of my eye during an early morning...

    Depression & Loneliness towards old age was probably a large reason for it. There was a house even larger, more cluttered & had twice as many cars that I came across in 2017. I got two pics of it before I realized it was still occupied. The house has since been cleared out, sealed and is my Flora House post.

    It's mad how utterly rammed full the house and the cars are, I've never seen more stuff in a single property than in here. I found it overwhelming as you simply don't know how to process it or what to shoot. It also made me remark at the time that it's tragic how far down the spiral someone must have been to let things get this bad.

    Well, my first explore post lockdown! I decided to wait until it was really was safe to do so, and myself and my Non-Explorer friend who tagged along for his first explore (and really enjoyed it) took various procedures to safeguard ourselves. It was wonderful to be out again, like a weight lifted. This local site came up; @Mookster had done it a week or so before us. Quote from Mooksters Report: “The Montessori Method of Education is a child-centred educational approach based on...

    Well, I would like to first of all start off with saying “Long Time no Speak” to everybody! This explore back in late Feb would be my last explore before Corona Lockdown, which saw three months of no exploring, and safe and sensible exploring now. So sadly I have only done two explores since this one in Late Feb, which were back in Mid June. I guess I just did not get time to upload this before lockdown! Visited with Mookster and a Non-Explorer friend. ROAC (Royal Army Ordnance Corp)...

    A quick stop off at this place whilst collecting some items bought nearby. It would appear that the company either moved to a new premises nearby or this was a satellite facility for the main one, either way it's totally ruined and only the large cold rooms out back complete with nice big drains in the floor would give any hint that it was at some point an abbatoir of sorts, although I don't think much in the way of actual stunning was done here I think it was more a processing plant for...
