    Default A trip to the Wild West - January 2014


    A trip to the Wild West!

    We decided to hit the roads to check out a place that was once a bustling, buzzing and exiting place, a place that takes you as far back as the 1880’s… This is a trip to the Wild West!



    It appears that this wild west town came to a close during 2009 after it just closed for business one day and just never opened again. This 140 acre site is now a real life ghost town with nobody apart from the odd Urban Explorer coming to visit.





    This town was a very strange place to walk around, all you could hear is the sound of the wind howling through the broken windows and doors creaking. Floor boards damp and breaking with each step and although the town is slowly falling apart, you can’t help but remember what this place must have been like while it was open and filled with happy people!





















    With light fading fast, it was time to leave! Thanks for looking! :)

    Some more shots can be found on my website... Just click here!

    Looks really good there :)
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    I dunno. I like it, but at the same time I'm struggling with the fact that it's all fake anyway.

    Yeah it's all a fake scene but this still looks a cool place. Interesting to photograph and there's some real nice shots here!

    I'd love to check this out but a bit far for me though :(

    Thanks for the kind comments everybody. I wouldn't say the place is fake... it does exist... I was stood there!

    Cheers! Didn't notice one, there seems to be a fair bit missing / moved / hidden from what I've seen though... shame.
