    Arrow My New Flat!, AB25, Aberdeen.


    Urbex on ma doorstep

    Peter & I got the keys to our new flat a few days ago and OOOH the huffing and puffing of me lugging boxes up and down was making me in a bad mood.



    I went for a wander and found a door at the back of the flats which was half open and stacked up to the roof was those black recycling boxes filled with rubbish.
    HMMmm I thought, is this stairs down to a cellar?
    Well, the stairs you could hardly see, I guess over the years folk had chucked rubbish down them, there was cardboard boxes, an old computer and a bath!!
    But I trampled my way down and shreiked with joy!

    I'd found a mini Westhall!!! ... well not really but I just let my imagination think I had.
    My basement is better than some explores i've been on *cough* ropeworks and now I can have you all over and not worry about being caught.... because it's MINE!!! YAY :p

    The Flat. Comlete with my new car. HAD to get that in there



    The stairwell down to mini Westhall



    OK, the first room you come across.
    I think kitchen, it has some taps near the window.



    More rooms - 2 were completley dark and all I had was the flash of my camera.
    They were filled with coal and there were slats where the coal man back in the day maybe put the coal down.



    Lovely toilet with amazing wallpaper and tiling



    Shower complete with soap and shampoo



    Some old bottles, not sure what the green one is, white one is a potion for flaky skin.



    A calendar from 1975



    And some paint!



    There were lots more old bottles and rusty contraptions ..
    I shall be going back tonight to investigate more and once I'm all moved in, I shall get you all over for the flat warming. Torch essential.

    Cool :)

    When I was a kid, my best friend lived in a 5-storey house in Dowanhill, and it was a bit like that - the front door was on the middle floor and they lived on the top three floors - the lower floors were old servants quarters and hadn't been touched for 50 years. Great fun to explore - there's something magical about secret basements.

    Best one, though, is Roslin Castle - you can rent the house on top, and it's built on a pillar of rock - go through a small door and the steps go down and down to 3 or 4 levels of basement under the house...

    :shocked: That's soooo cool! When can we all come over for a look around your very own derelict site?!
    I'd rather beg for forgiveness than ask for permission.

    My parent's neighbour used to have tiles like that in her kitchen.

    When I was young a few of my friends had cellars in their houses but I didn't because my house was built in the 1970s.

    When I moved into my flat I hoped for some places to explore, but the conversion from a late Victorian Salvation Army hall was an almost total rebuild apart from the facade.

    There are supposed to be some crawl spaces on the upper floors but I need to go into someone's flat to access them.

    The bin & meter rooms don't give much potential.

    You got rid of your dying Leon then?
    Your basement looks interesting, it looks almost liveable, I wonder why it hasn't been renovated in the past 30 odd years.

    What a fantastic find. Awesome!

    What was the old computer like? Any photos of. I'm a retro computer geek, and collect old computers.
