    Hi All, I've a bit of a thing for unused race tracks. Usually they're old RAF bases steeped with heritage coupled with motorsport. Not really in this case though... it was built on an old quarry. Rockingham Speedway, whilst a fantastic venue, never really took off in the way they hoped, I don't think they ever filled every seat. That said, it was a firm favourite for the British Touring Car Championship and Formula 3 race series. Motorsport and such activity ceased in 2018 and it's now...

    400m of unused carriageway that was built in 1974 The Road to Nowhere in Yate was originally part of a scheme to create a bypass road. Work was halted due to the rising costs of materials and funding by outside companies. Plans to finish and open the road has been on the table but it hasn't gone any further as to date

    Probably the smallest explore ever but thought some of u may find this interesting. This small Roman bath lays just a few miles from me well tucked away on a private estate and is quite a secret place. So much so that the vast majority of locals dont even know of its existence. Strange then that they restored this in 2000 ... for no one to benefit from! I dont believe this has been covered before either so hgere goes!

    Raven Morrow Mansion There isn't much history available for the site, but we think it was built in the late 1980s and vacated from 2014. Apparently there are 14 bedrooms, each with on-suites and owned by some Latvian men, who live in the security house joined to the manor.

    Hi all, I visited last summer and it was one of my more enjoyable explores with quite a few features which of course are either racing or airfield related. Access was a piece of piss, I hear there's a very angry man who lives on site but I guess I got lucky. The sun was setting making for some wonderful colours, however constantly changing light conditions made things a little tricky. It's a fairly well known site already, there's loads of reports out there so I'll skip on the history...

    Random road trips to the middle of nowhere because we can, always results in urbex! This time the industrial goodness that is Selborne Brickworks. This place is packed with quite a bit of machinery still considering how long the place has been shut and certainly made for some awesome photos, with some cool graffiti dotted about too from whoever I can assume is “Just Matter” 🤷*♂️ Some short and brief history on the place followed by the all important pictures

    Talking to @downandbeyond the other day about this the other day so thought I would do a repost as its one of my favorite local explores & my first pics were quite frankly crap! The original mill dates to 1700, with a later extension added on in 1840. The mill is 3 storey + attic. The wheel is iron and wooden waterwheel aprox 14 feet diam and 12 feet wide & is still in place with water still flowing beneath,

    ***** PRE-LOCKDOWN EXPLORE ***** 1. The History Owned by the well-known Clark family of Noblethorpe Hall, Old Sovereign Colliery was sunk at Dodworth Moor End in 1855. By then Robert Couldwell Clarke had died at the age of 46, in 1843 and the family businesses had passed to his widow Sarah Ann who ran things with her brother James Farrer before handing control of business affairs to her son, Robert Couldwell Clarke Jr. He took little interest leaving business matters to his uncle James who...

    Cider Press Hall, May 2020 One that's local (so passes social distancing tests!) and one I've been saving for a while. The farmer rumbled me before I could get more shots of the press, so I had to beat a hasty retreat. Not much in the way of history I'm afraid, but it's been abandoned for some time pre-2000s for sure and would have been a lovely house in its day. 1. 2. No way in the front door...

    The History Permanites Cawdor site was built in the 1960's to produce mastic asphalt in the form of flooring blocks and roof linings. Using bitumen brought in from Ellesmere port and limestone from the local Middle Peak quarry. The site closed in 2009 to relocate to Grangemill. Now known as IKO. A quote from a Facebook group: "Originally this was Permanite. Mastic asphalt is a mixture of bitumen with limestone grit and powder mixed at around 200c for about 5 hours. Run out hot by hand in...

    Exploring out to sea, sort of, a first for myself and with only a weeks planning the best tide times to head out to Grain Tower Battery myself and CapturePhotography found ourselfs at the battery. Despite the excitement, my hatred for ladders still appears to be a thing, quoting Jeremy Clarkson’s “many poos have come out” while climbing the sketchy ladder. The explore itself was great, and in some cases quite unusual with the mount of general public also walking out to the battery and...

    Hotel Silver Swan #05 This time, we will discuss the mysterious death of a world-famous entertainer. For that, we headed to a remote ski resort in the Austrian Alps to explore her former property: A four-star hotel that was abandoned many years ago after the financial ruin of the celebrity. After many years on the stage, she died under mysterious circumstances. To this date, it remains an inexplicable incident. But the derelict hotel in the Alps is closely linked to her fate. During our...

    Brigstock Camp built 1925 and over the years was used for an Emigration Camp, an Army Camp, ATS and Land Army Camp, US Army Training School, and in 1960 Stewarts & Lloyds Steelworks purchased Brigstock Camp for £23,000 at an auction. One hundred people moved from Scotland to work at the Steelworks and used Brigstock Camp for their living quarters and paid between £2.00 to £4.00 a week in rent and were allowed to stay up to nine months to allow them to find suitable accommodation. Done with a...

    ****PRE-LOCKDOWN EXPLORE ***** 1. The History Next to no information on this pair of farm worker’s cottages at Langholme in Lincolnshire. There’s a little more about the manor farmhouse across the road, as it was Grade II listed in July 1987. Dating from 1790-1800, it cuts a sad and dilapidated image. 2. The Explore So, after a day of initial failure, the derps came good. The second pair of farm worker’s cottages here in the depths of Lincolnshire. Unloved and left to fall down, this...

    I honestly have loads of unposted stuff I was hoping to get up while things are quiet, but I only seem to find time for the small shitty ones. I have however gone for another that there is very few reports from. This really was a flying visit late last year on a miserable day, not that much to see but hope you enjoy. Broomhill Pool opened on 30 April 1938 and closed in the autumn of 2002. The lido was built in 1938 for £17,000 by the County-Borough of Ipswich. It was designed by E....

    Bramble Mill, May 2020 Another social distance explore from me! There's been a mill (I think corn) here for a long time according to old maps, but this is just the remnant of a larger complex that has been demolished. As it was the only bit left I was hoping for machinery galore, alas I was torn to shreds by brambles for not much at all and a complete death trap... 1. 2.

    While in the area at another location, it made sense to check out Benenden Hospital out before embarking on the long journey home. Another site that had been high on the list for quite some time. Although the site still stands, it has long been stripped out and notices around the perimeter fencing suggest it was due for demolition pending planning permission back in late 2019 which was later denied and subsequently still stands. Unfortunately most buildings were locked shut, and with the...
