    1. The History Very little history on this place. The former Distribution Warehouse is in an area known as Hallamshire Works on Boyland Street in the Neepsend district of Sheffield, on a 1.8-acre site. The site is well-placed due to its direct access into Sheffield city centre and out to the M1 Motorway at Junction 36. A Street View capture from October 2014 shows the site being used by C&D Transport Express. Meanwhile, a Google search also turns up A&E Transport Ltd, another Road Haulage...

    Still very interesting despite lots being broken or removed. Must admit to laughing at the faded poster - I reckon someone would complain about it these days.. Did it have underground sections? I have this feeling that's all! Interesting report that.

    More of a wander than an explore so no specific history. Having revisted Shek Lo thought I’d wander over to another place I’d previously looked at previously. The last two times I’d been here, on one occasion I’d been pushed for time and the other the light was fading. However on arriving was faced with this: Tze Tung Tsuen 01 by HughieDW, on Flickr Tze Tung Tsuen 02 by HughieDW, on Flickr …which is good. Glad it’s going to get restored and not go the same way as many ‘heritage’...

    1. The History The Redmires Reservoirs are a group of three reservoirs in Fulwood, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England. They are fed from various small streams rising from the Hallam Moors by including Fairthorn Clough. The three reservoirs are named Upper, Middle and Lower and date back to 1836 They were created to provide clean drinking water via a water course down to Barker's Pool 5½ miles away following Sheffield’s devastating cholera epidemic in 1832. The former Water Treatment...

    We dont do tourist spots on here right? Well u best ban me now cos heres one I bloody loved! I was down South for a holiday & noticed this place so thought Id have a quick look & it was one of the most idyllic places Iv visited. Helped partly by the mid week explore which meant I had the place to myself & some relatively decent weather left me not wanting to leave. If it makes it slightly more plausible the trail round the back of the water mills was fenced off "under repair" but with a...

    Chantry House.Wakefield has been empty since it shut in 2006 as former council tax and highways building. In 2017 A planning application has been drawn up requesting permission to change the use of Chantry House from offices to one and two bedroom “residential units”. The application has been submitted by The Freshwater Group, the development arm of Watermark Retirement Communities. But nothing came of that so the council ended up buying it and plans to demolish it later this year...

    I’ve written extensively about the history of the abandoned town of Juterbog here: After spending a day wandering around we went back to the hotel for a beer and to retrace our steps on Google Maps. To our horror, we’d missed an excellent looking building in the woods. So we got an early night in preparation for the next day. ….Well, not all of us. JC and myself got drunk in a beach themed cocktail bar on brightly coloured cocktails, and then infiltrated the service tunnels under our...

    Excellent! Sat here in a pool of excitement.. Still a few goodies to see inside them despite the metal thieves being through it all. I knew of this one and as you say it sometimes pops up in places such as coal mining group chats on the net. Surprised that it's still standing but then again we're struggling to find use for many old buildings in this country. I do hope it's all saved and not allowed to simply crumble. The outsides are very pretty. I'm unsure about what was done with...

    1. The History Freiston Shore coastal battery is an ensemble of gun emplacements, observation posts, coastal artillery search lights and magazines on the coast due east of Boston, Lincolnshire. It was an emergency battery built during the Second World War as part of Northern Command's coastal defences. It was commissioned in May 1940 and armed with two 6-inch breech-loading MkVII naval guns. Records show it was in use up until September 1944. The two 6-inch gun emplacements retain their...

    Possibly the most surreal place I’ve even looked around. No real history to this place. It’s pretty modern so not that surprising. Came across it when we were driving south from Chiang Rai to Chiang Mai. It just loomed up to our right. It was pretty surreal to see a Khmer style temple appear out of nowhere. Stretched for time we didn’t stop. Not to worry though as we were going to be passing back this way three days later. So, on the journey home we stopped at the hot spring’s village of Mae...

    1. The History Ledston Luck Colliery was a coal mine between Castleford and Micklefield. The pit was sunk in the 1870's and later formed part of the super-pit of interlinked workings around Selby. The two winding Houses were built in 1911 and where among the first to use electric winders, at a time most other mines were still using steam. The pit was linked with the nearby Peckfield Colliery via rail, allowing the coal to be transferred to the main line for distribution. The 2ft 6in gauge line...

    After spotting that I wasn't far from this beautiful place whilst away on a family holiday, I couldn't resist taking one morning to check it out. Villa Sbertoli Villa Sbertoli was built in the early 1800s by wealthy merchant Agostino Sbertoli. According to some sources he decided to turn the villa into a psychiatric hospital because he had a disabled son, whom he tried to cure all his life. On his death bed he decided to devote all his possessions to a charity for the mentally...
