    So I've been monitoring this forum
    For a while and getting lots of info from here for particular places so it was about time I joined and said hi.

    In the last few weeks me and the misses have been to quite a few places around the country (I video document vwith use of a drone and she does the photos). I have a lot of info for places in Birmingham and the surroundings including one of the holy grails the Anchor exchange although have not managed to get in just yet but watch this space!

    We are into Asylums and Hospitals and on the cards this weekend is haslar and have booked a hotel so I have plenty of attempts over 2 days. I have checked with the FAA about the airspace there with the area it's in and I'm cleared to fly there (if it was a no fly zone my drone wouldn't take off due to the gps location).

    I've got many videos of a few locations put together and once I feel I have enough I'll start a YouTube channel to upload them all.

    I know haslar had been documented many times but I aim to get a new perspective of the place that I don't think has been done yet.

    Like I said if anyone wants info on Birmingham locations like tunnels, houses, factories then pm me and I may be able to help. We are all here for the same reason after all!

    I know of a definite 3 and possibly 1 other way in I just haven't had the bottle to try them. It's so secure and every entrance is covered with cameras and is either inside a building or behind locked gates but I have seen 1 entrance open a few times when engineers are in there. It can be done but it's gonna be one of those make or break situations.

    Yeah we know of the entrances but the level of security is ridiculous.

    I'm not sure good things would happen if you were caught down there....!

    This is somewhere I've wanted to go for some time now and have read bits and pieces on the condition of the place and it getting worse :( I really want to get this 1 under my belt before it's too late. I sort of have a plan of action in my head by looking through the forum and google maps etc about how to get in but I've done this on every place I visit and it never goes to plan and always end up having to find another way. The challenge is part of the excitement for me, If I don't manage to get in I'll try the next weekend and then next until I do. I'll send you a pm :)

    Birmingham wise it's mainly industrial places. There's loads of abandoned places around digbeth and the jewlery quarter.
    The typhoo factory is a no go at the moment as the area is full of spielburgs film crew for his new film. Honestly if you spend an hour walking the JQ and digbeth u will find plenty like old jewellers, printing works and fabric works.
    There's a place Ive been eyeing up in edgbaston begind the spring hill enterprise car rental in fact there's a couple of places out the back of there which Ive had a few failed attempts but think the next visit we would of cracked it, also1 also next to the Buddhist temple in edgbaston.
    There's a couple of old pubs in Aston that are worth a visit, also I recommend looking at longbridge tunnels before they disappear completely (waterproof boots is a must as the entrance is muddy, fine once a little way in). Hope this helps a little for ya.
