    That's really nicely shot sir. Top marks. I believe its sealed and alarmed now and under new ownership but not sure if its true or not.

    UNDERSTAND PHOTOS MAY NOT BE WORKING - WILL TRY FIX TOMORROW. -Correct me if wrong- The previous owner of this cottage was arrested and had a restraining order out against him for harassing his neighbours, so he can not go back to this property at all! He did go to prison, done his time and moved to a different location, apparently he done the same and back inside (who knows!) Here’s so photos of my explore. My first post so, be nice!

    Woolmanhill Hospital Woolmanhill Hospital was the original Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, before this moved to the Foresterhill site. The original hospital building on the site was begun in 1740. Designed by William Christall, it opened in 1749. The Royal Infirmary, was rebuilt between 1833 and 1840, in the Grecian style, at the cost of £17,000. The Simpson Pavilion (1833−40), designed by Aberdeen architect, Archibald Simpson is one of the last surviving examples of a pre-Nightingale...

    Bike "wankrs" include many people interested in conserving/preserving heritage and sites-of-interest. Bikes give good quiet access to many places off-limits to motor vehicles. (They are also easier to park, hide and don't generally attract attention). Stay safe.

    I was out on a cycle with my mate ethan and we came across this old Farm House Thing? From what we know, it was operational till around 2018-2019 as it was set on fire and the family had to escape quickly. It was really cool walking around the place but sad knowing that we were walking in some poor peoples house. We were saying that we couldn't believe that it was actually still standing as our council loves flattening history and putting horrible council houses in it. These are Some Of The...

    Actor Trevor Howard is best known for his role in Brief Encounters & while I wont pretend he was a name I was particularly familiar with he has appeared in an unbelievable 90+ films. Trevor & actress Halen Chery were Wed in 1944 & brought this place in 1950. They were according to the sales blurb "known for their flamboyant parties" which may explain the rack of whips & tickling sticks we found in the corner of the room! Trevor died in 1988 & Helen (who appeared in nearly 30 films...

    St Joseph's Orphanage was funded and built on behalf of a wealthy widow named "Maria Holland" in 1872 who was frequently donating £10,000 at a time to build the structure as Preston had one of the worst mortality rates in the UK at the time due to poor housing and low paid mill workers. In 1877 "St Joseph's Institute for the Sick and Poor" was opened. The chapel was added in 1910. The hospital could accomodate around 25 patients at a time and was run by Sisters of Charity of Our Lady Mother of...

    That place is just a mess. Just goes to show how much devastation a fire can do.

    Nice photos, well done for a firsr explore. I'm glad the house is up for sale as it's not vandalised so it will be taken over by someone who will look after it.

    My first report here and the 3rd location I've done in the last 2 weeks. I'll post reports to the other locations soon. I shoot on film so great care is taken in taking these shots! This farm house is also known by another name which is how I was able to locate it so to protect it somewhat, I've renamed it. Things I found out during my explore: The last person living here was an elderly woman called Violet and she passed away in early 2018. The house has been relatively untouched since...

    Couldn't find much history on this place, however this fire sustained severe fire damage during an arson attack that occured at the site in July 2017 resulting in most of the building being an open ruin. We guessed that the building was last used in 1990s/2000s. During our explore we encountered that the site that the building occupies we discover that the building was extremely vegetated. The former driveway that used to lead to this once luxury had been taken over by plants, nettles,...

    I have paid a couple of visits to Snailbeach during May to photograph the remains of the Snailbeach District Railways, once part of the Colonel Stephen's railway empire. The final section closed in 1959 but had relied on a road tractor hauling trains on the remaining section for around a decade due to lack of funds! For anyone wanting to explore this line a copy of Snailbeach District Railways by Twelveheads Press (2017) must be considered the definitive history of the railway and...

    During May I have had a good mooch around Snailbeach Lead Mine in Shropshire. There is a lot to see and one can download a trail leaflet on the web. In normal times the restored buildings are open and underground tours are available on selected dates - but at present they are suspended. It is well worth a visit: https://www.jhluxton.com/Industrial-Archaeology/Mines-of-Shropshire/Snailbeach-Lead-Mines/
