    Default Care Home 'H'


    Blimey, my last proper post on here was November 2013!

    I went somewhat quiet after the birth of my son, he's 20 months old and is a right handful, I do explore every now and then when the chance arises, and I've even taken my lad on the odd 'easy' explore...





    As much as I've not posted I have been a regular visitor still, and I have still done the odd explore with friends, but kept a bit of a low profile.

    Did anyone miss me? Does anyone even remember me?

    ------------------------------


    Enough of all that... about this care home...


    As with many of my explores, this was somewhere in the Uk that my work had sent me. It was in a little remote village in the middle of nowhere, someone I work with had given me a tip-off last year about a possible location just 2 miles from where I was working. So at lunchtime I popped over there, I didn’t expect anything, I didn’t take a change of clothes, or better shoes, I was in my work gear – shirt, trousers, shoes - NOT exploring stuff. I only had a small emergency torch and my tripod is broken and sat at home. I couldn’t have got it more wrong (I must be out of practice). As a result I have very noisy photos from having to use a flash, I have cuts on my legs from the brambles, I have ruined trousers from the brambles and from the interesting access! Bah, I need to go back properly!



    But for now, here’s the photos I’ve managed… sorry, not my best… (a revisit is being planned!)



































    Thanks for looking... :)
