    I spend most of my time on the Isle of Portland in Dorset. This place has some AMAZING explores.
    Anyone out there local to me?

    Not me personally but are some good guys in that area. I've done a few explores over there though, the RNAS, Osprey, ROTOR bunker.

    Feel free to post some more up though.

    will do. got some great pictures from some of the sites on Portland including but not only the FC. Currently trying to work out where D Battery is on Portland - or to correct that - how to get to it!

    You should see if you can find the abandoned village (DISTEX site) near the docks. It is very cool.

    Hello. I live in Bournemouth I have never been out on an exploration as I do not know the locations or have anybody interstellar in doing it with me. Are there any local groups in the area you know of?

    Hello, I'm just north of Dorchester. I go to Portland quite a lot, my only explores so far have been up round The Verne and back on the mainland for Tyneham, I'm interested in doing some more especially the docks village. Perhaps we'll bump into each other sometime!

    Welcome! Portland definitely has plenty of treasures, although access to the DISTEX site is getting harder these days, new fences being put up everywhere.
