    It's been a while since I've posted on here... lockdown has allowed me to finally get around to editing stuff in the archive! I'm desperate to get out the door and find some new places, got a trip down south planned later this month so hopefully I'll find something along the way. :smile: This was a lovely, big house in the middle of nowhere, with only 1 house close-by. What I assumed to be the neighbour actually cut my explore short by wandering around the grounds (think he was keeping 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...

    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...

    I pointed this place out to Grom the other week as I couldn't venture into it due to being there on a weekday and there being a hell of a lot of activity around the site, but seeing his photos he was sending me when in there I knew I needed to give it a look myself. Fast forward a week and a bit and I returned, and a thoroughly enjoyable mooch was had. The factory began life as the Meredith Drew & Co. biscuit factory built in 1950, but this venture only lasted until 1962 when the site was...

    Just a random place I stumbled upon, but turned out to be a rather nice mooch. No history known Im afraid but looks like a typical farmstead. There was obviously car repairs going on here as there is a lot of "newer mark" cars laying around. This Nissen hut was turned into a makeshift spray booth, of sorts.

    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...

    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...

    I was graciously handed this one by a non member friend to check out while out with my lad & though not much there its a rather photogenic place. It is a typical grade 2 listed water powered corn mill with not a lot left inside. Built Circa 1800, & the machinery was replaced later in C19. Its construction is of English garden wall bond red brick. Slate roof with gabled ends and brick dentil eaves; the taller main block has been reclad in

    Good set of photos – there are some excellent murals in addition to #8. Bad luck if you came across security, I've been a couple of times (2016 and 2018) and we never saw any sign of them.

    This really is fantastic. That modern TV box is really out of place. I've got that same K-9 on VHS. I notice there are two electricity meters. Seems it was two residences, or was at some point.

    This is amazing. I love that old TV. I see the neon light is on for the heater. Maybe the heating is on to keep free from damp?
