    Manchester and its surrounding cities have a lot to offer, it all depends on what tickles your fancy buddy.

    There's lots of us Mancunians on here who are happy to assist.

    Hi @bainzy07,
    Welcome :)
    As @Bigian88 says there is a good few of us on here form in and around Manchester.
    What stuff takes your fancy when you have been watching the videos, best to start with something your interested first.
    @Bigian88 took me on my first explore and a load after and loved every trip.

    You don't have to go a million miles away for a few hopsitals and churches. I don't think we have much military stuff around here any more (other than underground shelters and I think Woodford aerodrome has gone now?).

    If you're interested in underground stuff, I'd recommend getting involved with Derbyshire Caving club who can introduce you to some of the mines in Alderley Edge and they will supply you with the equipment for the day. If that maintains your interest then you know what kit to grab in future :)

    That came across rather promiscious! haha

    We're in south Manchester, it depends on where you are and how easily you can travel more than anything else buddy.
