The original thread can be found here.

But it was starting to lose links, possibly due to the size of the thread - so I've started a new one here.

I'll Start the ball rolling with Dereliction Addiction 62 - Alone in the zone.
I've been to Chernobyl far too many times now, but on the last trip I had the best guide in the world: Normally they keep you within earshot / eyesight, but this guy was like "See you in 8 hours, don't kill yourself" Giving me time to wander round completely alone, and completely fulfil the 'last person alive' fantasy.

Glad you enjoyed it!

The day after I posted it on a popular video site I awoke to an inbox looking like this:
It goes to show the level of hate / ignorance outside of our community!

If I didn't know you I'd suggest these responses were fake, I'm absolutely shocked at the level of ignorance in these people. I wonder if they give this abuse to pilots? Being as a pilot would receive more radiation from flying! Wow!

Those posts remind me of the old saying - "Better to remain silent and let people think that your stupid than to open your mouth and prove it beond any doubt" they probably don't even realise that they probably got a higher dose flying to their holiday destination last year and 1 in 3 of them will get cancer anyway. :)

Samy I have moved your video to the urbex videos thread as location reports are for photos really.

To embed the video literally just cut and paste the youtube url. You do not need to do anything else.

Old Mill Lane - 01/15

In 1816, the foundations of a mill are laid here under the orders of a Mr Jonathan Akroyd. In 1818, the development is finished and it's life as an industrial mill begins with Akroyd, Garlick & Company.

Ackroyd's mill is the first iron-framed, steam-powered mill in Britain and is one of the largest mills in it's district. Thanks to the stone floors on every level of the building it was said to be fire-proof and had enough structural integrity to support even the heaviest of industrial machinery throughout.

The offices of the Woodside Penny Savings Bank were originally on the grounds of the mill, however, there is little to no remaining evidence of this.

Owners and tenants of the works have included but are not limited to;

[1836] Jeremiah Rawson
[1870] William Henry Rawson
[1861] William H. Rawson & Company
[1890] Joseph Moxon Kirk & Sons
[1905] Old Lane Dyeworks Company Limited
[1905] Davis, Gordon & Company
[1905] Allen North & Company

The first recording of any damage to the property by fire is the 21st January 1905, not long before it's final tenants left and the mill was left to ruin.

To be completely honest this is our first Urbex video (This doesn't mean it was our first Urbex) so ANY feedback/critique would be greatly appreciated as it's the only way we will ever improve. Old Mill Lane was a visit done to serve as a test to see how the video came out before we visit two of the properties (An asylum & a church) we have been to in the past as we want to make sure the footage for these is bang on (For those that are interested these will be uploaded in the coming weeks).

I am currently at college so I will do my best to upload the images to Flickr tonight and link them here.

For it to embed you just want the youtube url, nothing at the end of it... (i.e. youtube.com?v=shgosdhgsdo) no & mark or anything after it. It also needs to be http instead of https at the beginning.

Thanks for the guidance, and apologies for the misplacement of the thread, I assumed as I would be uploading images later that it would be fine in the Industrial thread but I will take note for the future!

If you have any feedback (If you get a chance to watch it) we would appreciate it.

If you're going to do it that way then hold off from posting until you've got the images and the videos to post and post it all as one, otherwise it will get moved like it has today. :)
