    Hi all I've been a lurker on here for longer than I can remember so decided to grow a pair and sign up
    I'm a lover of abandoned buildings mainly, having done most of what swindon has to offer (which isn't really much) I've now henmoved onto further afield corsham area mainly as this place fascinates me
    Been a regular in box mines and have also visited jsu corsham very recently.
    I also spent 3 1/2 hours at browns folly yesterday although I left disappointed
    I hoping to be able to meet up with some of the more seasoned explorers on here that maybe know more about the areas I'm currently looking at but I'm fairly open minded
    Sorry if I've turned this into an essay but hopefully it explains a tad about who I am and what I like

    I'll fire up the laptop shortly and put a post up I'll probably do a selection of my favorite pics from about 6-7 visits of the same place hopefully that will be acceptable :)

    Hello and welcome, nice to see you have already explored a fair few places. Looking forward to seeing your reports :thumb And yeah as Cuuvin said you'll soon know if its not up to scratch - word to the wise on the chance you do get critics, don't take any criticism personally read the comments and make your own mind up whether or not to take on board what people say. :D

    I've been to box (multiple times) browns folly mine, there's also a couple of other places in that area. I've been to Denbigh but only took pics from outside the perimeter as I didn't fancy it on my own haha swindon itself has very little now I that I know of
    The one that's big on my list at the moment is camalot really want to do that before it vanishes

    Hi am also in Swindon, looking to visit farleigh tunnel this weekend if I can find it on the map!
    Was in the box mine 3 times last week alone, couldn't get enough of it was awesome! Also a derelict house in Wootton Bassett, and a rather large underground bunker in Swindon. (Oh and the dance hall, had to be done ;-) !) if anyone could help me out with a drop pin or directions for the tunnel I'd be eternally grateful, and obviously willing to help out if any of those above locations local to us swindonians catch your eye!
    Thanks and good luck :) :)
