    Me and some friends are relatively new to urbex. We had a good look around GNR derby the other week which was challenging but very enjoyable.
    Has anyone got any more recommendations for places around derby?
    Thanks, Ben, Cal, Dan & Hayden

    Welcome to the forum. Plenty to do in the East Mids, Type a location into the search bar and have a look through. Seeing that you're interested in the GNR, there's a good tunnel near bakewell I'd recommend :thumb

    In Derby? the great Northern railway bonded building is great, it's completely battered inside,but there's some good climbing to do, the cellars are huge and interesting, there's the hippodrome, it's really dicey in there due to the collapse and fire damage but still an interesting building to look at, there's the markeaton intercepter culvert, the Boredomiser culvert, the ALDA factory,,the house's that are part of the old DRI site, there's the Penine Hotel that's shut down but that's still locked down with security and dogs ect ..but only time will tell, heading out of Derby there's the Ambergate wire works factory, with some abandoned cottages near by, oakhurst house there too, a few bits really, there all well documented if you use the search bar on here, always keep your eyes out though, it's good to jump off the tourist bus and fine something new!
