    Welcome! Have you got any pictures of your trips to Hellingly back then? I first visited around '05 so would be good see some earlier pictures.

    Ahhh that would be cool if you managed to find it. Yeah I wanna get into exploring but probably not the best bet to go by myself... And I don't have friends in this country who are interested in urbex

    I no longer knew anyone in my area who still does it, but I want to get back into it, as I now have a Nikon DSLR, with a really nice wide angle lens, tripod and getting a flash gun this mouth, which is all much better then my camera phone, the last time I done it, just need to get out there and have some fun lol

    I'm gonna start trying to go out and check places out on my own but gonna have to look at finding a group to go with so I can properly explore.
    Ooo nice, what flash you getting?
    I've got some awesome lenses and the Sony A7ii which is such a good camera

    I am up for a explore, but have no transport apart from public transport, a group is always much safer, as you can get locked in these places or other things happen, its always good to have other people's ideals and back up plans or others places to go to, I am getting a cheaper flash gun off Amazon with some color gel filters, I am going to get a full fame camera, at some point too

    Yeah for sure, could always look at getting a nice group together for trips, if your interested?
    I could imagine it being abit of a worry if things go wrong.
    Have a look at the godox t685s it's a brilliant flash. The camera I use is amazing just depends on your budget for a full frame

    Generally speaking, you'd have to be pretty unlucky to get locked into a place. I've only known of it happening a very small number of times. You're more likely to come across a rabid security guard and even then as a female you tend to be able to get away with a little more than a bloke would in the same situation.

    I personally don't enjoy exploring alone purely because I prefer to share the experience with someone else but it's always worth knowing how to protect yourself regardless if you do venture out alone and the need arises!

    I have been looked in hellingly by security, which was a lot of fun, someone made a massive hole in the fence, which was really good to get into the ground, but as we went too leave, it had been fill in lol.

    I am after a Nikon d810 its a beast of a camera, it will be a little jump up form a nikon d3200, which is a good camera, but it does have its limits, I am getting the flash for some inside shots in the dark or not very good light, I do have a weakness for light trails, I am so going too do some place this year
