    The Explore : Visited the site in Jan 2020 - This has been on my list for some long time and i know its been done to death too - Visited the site with @WilsonTheHuman and none members - After seeing online that the planes have been removed - we went searching for them - Didn't take long to find them. Got stuck in the mud too on way ( Don't wear trainers on muddy fields that waterlogged lmao :banghead ) One at the planes spent a while taking photos and looking at some of the buildings that...

    Well, what can I say about this place. A three story house with the ground floor used as a watchmakers & jewellers workshop. Sat unused and untouched for years, cram packed full of stuff. The house had belonged to the Mallinson family for a couple of generations, the watchmakers father was a businessman in his own right and owned a shop in the city called The Great Supply Company. Evidence of this company was inside the house. The place was a true time capsule. It was full of vintage...

    Another little gem that I dont believe many know about. Cant lay claim to finding this, that goes to a close friend. Cant tell you much about this either other than it appears to originally of been a farm house to the adjacent land. The owner was obviously a car enthusiast & engineer of sorts/ There is planning to demolish & rebuild here so tried to make the best of photographing while I could so its a bit pic heavy! Hope u enjoy

    Not a lot of history on this one sadly The building was used as a care home until it closed in 2012, previous to that it would have no doubt been an impressive house.

    1. The History Wallingwells is a small civil parish and hamlet in the Bassetlaw district of Nottinghamshire, England. Here can be found Wallingwells Hall, a Grade 2 listed 17th-century country house built on the site of Wallingwells Priory, the site of a former Benedictine Nunnery. Along with the hall, three cottages, a converted stable block, and one further property make up the secluded hamlet of Wallingwells. Dating back 400 years, in 1946 the hall was split into four separate dwellings. ...

    HISTORY In May 1864 Liverpool Adult Deaf and Dumb Benevolent Society was established. It was founded by George Healey, a Deaf man. He set up the Society initially to give Deaf people equal access to the Scriptures. They started with just one room in the School for the Deaf and Dumb in Oxford Street. They had no premises where they could meet until 1869 when they were able to rent a room in Pleasant Street. In 1874 the priest in charge of Liverpool gave permission for Sunday services...

    It feels like ages since I posted anything. What with time and mainly issues with photobucket resizing all my images to freezing my account up and losing all the pics for weeks. it was a worldwide problem for everyone. but all seems back to normal now. Me and man gone wrong and janovitch tried here about six years ago and lasted about half an hour without getting in a single building. So we decided to give it another crack last summer. So we made two trips over a few weeks to cover the site the...

    Visited this beautiful large remains of a manor last year whilst me and the girlfriend were away for a few days up that way. It is like most of these old manors and castles were they became to expensive to maintain. so they were left to become derelict. The house was built by sir John McDonald in 1853 and he knocked down the old house to have it replaced with this one. It was sold in 1881 and then again in 1891 to the great grandfather of the owner now. it was used during world war two as a...

    Areszt Śledczy w Zabrzu #03 You know, it is rather ironic actually. Normal people want to stay as far away as possible from places like this. And we, too, do not want to serve time in a jail. But as we were on our road trip to Poland, we got a tip from a local to explore this abandoned detention center in the middle of a big city. Moving freely in a prison is a contradiction in terms, but here we were doing exactly that. This undisclosed landmark allowed us to see how life behind the curtain...

    One of those excellent domestic jobbies that some of you will know. I have no history on this place so really have no idea why this amazing house has been left in such a way. I have it on good authority that its been unmolested for some years so Im giving as little information anyway in the hope it remains so. Bit pic heavy but hope u like it!

    Making unplanned last min urbex trips with Capture Photography is becoming a regular thing. This time heading out to the most graffiti covered place I have ever seen. I have only seen a handful of reports on this place and some suggesting it’s previous use as a police training ground, however sources suggest this is not the case hence naming the place simply Graffiti Academy. It’s nice to have a very chilled explore for a change with straight forward access and no one around other than...

    Hi I'm new to this site and looking forward to showing what I come across on my travels. I have taken some of this information from a website. These were at the centre of Britain's war effort, training pilots and crews for Whitley, Stirling and Halifax bombers. But now the buildings at the old RAF Tilstock airfield are about to be levelled to the ground and replaced with housing. The plans have dismayed historians, who say the site is of great historical importance and should be...

    Dudson is a British company that manufactured tableware, glassware and porcelain. It is one of the oldest brands of its industry in England, founded in 1800. It was also one of the first pottery companies to identify a need to serve specifically the hospitality market, and began to serve exclusively this segment soon after its launch. In 1891 it even developed a stronger type of vitrified china for the hospitality market and it's believed to be one of the first globally to do so. Dudson...

    Not very exciting this one really but dont recall seeing it reported before so thought I would share what few pics I have from a quick visit in rapidly deteriorating light. Only bit of info I could find on this place was the following:- The Wheatsheaf was a former coaching inn, the traditional stone building with collyweston slate roof dates back to the 17th century. The hotel had 19 individually furnished, en-suite rooms & was licensed to perform civil wedding ceremonies. Three...

    Another one that I'm sure everyone here is very familiar with, so apologies! xD Just posting some pictures as a comparison really; I couldn't find any recent reports on this place on here, certainly nothing in the last few years, so, hopefully some will find it interesting comparing the levels of total destruction in this place! It is utterly trashed now, sadly, and awaiting demolition as far as I know (correct me if I'm wrong, please!) Still a good fun explore though.

    This is my first explore upload so I apologize if its poor. This is a very local property that I have been looking at for many years, 15 maybe? but have never visited. Not much history on this except the building has been owned by one of the large local farming families how have a farm on the opposite side of the road. The explore was on my own, with no torch and a cheap point and squirt camera. I only got a few rooms into the first floor before wimping out. If any local explorers can do...

    1. The History Can find absolutely no history about this old workshop whatsoever. Perhaps not surprising, given it is fairly unmemorable and has been abandoned for some considerable time. 2. The Explore A chance find. Had explored a place nearby and when I was returning home, caught sight of this place so decided to park up and have a look. There’s quite a lot of stuff here but it is very, very derped. If it wasn’t for the very large number of moderately photogenic and heavily rusted...

    Been done before so the history in short The Wellington County Infant's School was built in 1893, becoming Hanley St. Luke's C of E Aided Primary School in 1982. The school closed in 2001, when a new extension was added to the adjacent junior school and was used by Peggy Davies Ceramics until 2010. The building is listed & is in fairly good shape at the moment so could be saved & put to different use quite easily. The biggest problem it seems to have is Pigeons! Iv honestly not seen...

    1. The History The detached multiple-bay five-storey mill was built circa 1790. The former corn mill is an imposing feature of the town and retains much of its original form and structure but is in a ruinous state. It serves as a reminder of the industrial past of Killeagh. The mill may also have served as a bleach mill given the River Dissour was renowned for its bleaching properties in the nineteenth century. It ceased operations around 1942 and is included in the National Inventory of...

There's very little history i can gather for this as the line they're on as well as the stock them selves all have different origins and stories so I'll add some info on at the bottom of each photo.

    Pałac w Bożkowie by Tobi_urbex #01 Hands-down, this castle in the South of Poland is one of the most splendid palaces in the whole country. Leading figures from all around the world came to see this mansion but suddenly it all stopped when the site was abandoned more than 20 years ago. What happened to the former residents? From a distance, it still seems like a real-life fairy-tale castle. But take a closer look and you see that the facade is crumbling and that this is place is full of...

    1. The History Site of the former Nationwide Boat Sales Yard located on Sheffield Road at the southern edge of Unstone and 5km to the north of Chesterfield town centre. Nicknamed “Ocean village”, the business appears to have been established around 1984 and then closed down in 2005 with the site remaining abandoned since then. While open it boasted “over 300 boats for sale” with “one of the biggest boat sales yards in Europe”. The site which was predominantly used for the storage of boats was...

    1. The History Searched high and low for info on this one and couldn't find anything. All I know is that it was a former Methodist Church which was then sold off and bought by a man who was a car enthusiast and he used the chapel as his workshop and kept his cars and tractors in the grounds. It appears he passed away and the place has just been left. The church has holes in the roof and its days are surely numbered while the assorted vehicles gently rust away. 2. The Explore Nice little...

    It's been a while since a nice large residential property reared it's ugly head in my back yard, this one was found by a friend of mine and I made sure to hot foot it over there before it was sealed or whatever. Althought the house is largely empty, with only a random selection of junk left behind, it was actually pretty nice inside with a large central entrance hall and staircase with a wrap-around gallery level and all the rooms branching off that. It looked like the house was in the very...
