    Okay, so this is my first post on this site and I think I'll start with a piece on Huncoat Power Station in Accrington. I live in Preston and we've a wealth of abandoned buildings in Lancashire but all of them are slowly being discovered by me as I'm a very recent convert to shooting abandoned and disused buildings.

    My passion for photography has exploded ever since I bought my very first DSLR (Minolta 5D) way back in early 2007. Landscapes were my main subject matter before moving onto architecture, glamour, model, portraits, motorsports and now urban exploration. I love shooting on the edge and discovering these abandoned buildings gives me the buzz I crave when capturing somewhere that is steeped in history.

    I started my urban exploration with Huncoat only about two weeks ago and since then other locations have been researched, visited and documented on camera, all of which I'm happy to share.

    Huncoat is a great beginner’s choice for many reasons but not least because of its incredibly easy access. On approaching the building, its size impresses you. There is so much to shoot despite it being fundamentally just a shell. I've returned a couple of more times and I could still spend a couple of days there really getting to know the place better. One piece of advice to heed though is not to shoot alone at night, unless you want to be unnerved at the hearing of every sound that emanates throughout the building. The place is frequented by some amazingly talented graffiti artists and those who appreciate lighting small fires and drinking beer (possibly the same crowd) but I've never seen anybody there on my visits (bar friends who joined me).

    Anyhow, on with the show. Enjoy.

    You need to actually show the photographs on the forum rather than just give a link...

    Here are two links that should help you out with posting a location report here :)

    I have merged all the posts into one. You don't need to post each photo separately.

    As Urbex-SW said you would do well to read the two links he posted.

    Looks like I've seen this all corrected and normal looking- those are some really good pics :) I like this one a lot.
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?
