    Really great photos. Sometimes it is best to be out on your own. No time constraints and not worries other than your own personal safety. Welcome and that's fur popping your cherry on this site.

    Thank you for the kind words sennelager66 i did enjoy it being out on my own nice and quiet and relaxing and only had to look out for my own safety. Iíve been lurking on the forum for a long time and finally set a date to go out and explore back out again starting on Monday.

    Nice one looked a couple of great places to explore. Notice the idiots tried to burn the place, they never learn.

    Hi night crawler i did notice that people have been setting fires up there which is a huge shame the history in the city is huge and. Should be preserved for others to enjoy just as much as we do by capturing it in our photos.

DerelictPlaces is a forum for people with an interest in the history and documentation of disused, derelict and abandoned buildings to come together and share their experiences, photography and historical findings. Our military, industrial and historical heritage is fast disappearing under the pressure of regeneration, the need for new housing, and often through simple neglect; Our aim is to document these places before they disappear entirely.
