    Hey, I'm Alyx and I'm 25. I've been exploring abandoned buildings etc for a while now and now I'm looking for people in the area who might want to come along with me in the area or travel to certain locations to go exploring? It's about time I made some new friends who actually share this little hobby of mine.

    I'm also pretty much into my photography (I like to think I'm decent, ha!) and I drive so getting around isn't an issue!

    I've explored places such as Camelot, Pinetops Spa & Hotel, Sherdley Remec and Daresbury Hall (before the Police turned up - Hahaha!).

    I really want to visit Denbigh Asylum and St Josephs Orphanage (Preston) soon too.

    Howdo! Had a nose through your flickr - some of it's a bit HDRy for my tastes but really bloody good all the same! I can't believe what people can do with just an iPhone.

    I'm in Liverpool and generally up for a wander if it's not too out of the way. There's a couple of places I've been looking to revisit too, I'll give you a shout if anything comes up!

    Why thank you! For some reason whenever I upload pics from my iPhone it automatically thinks the pic itself is also from my iPhone. I have to write in the description what camera or whatever I've used, it's such a pain!

    Anyway, thanks for checking out my stuff. I don't put absolutely everything on there but hey ho! And yes, pls do! I'm always out and about :)

    Thank you. I've been on for a while. I just haven't used it as much as I have been recently - Haha! Anyway, yeah, I'd be grateful for any new places that are thrown at me and awesome, thank you, I've followed you back!

    Hi, I live in St. Helens and I am a fan of exploring abandoned places, taking pictures and video etc.
    I haven't done much myself because like you, its better to do it with likeminded people and my friends aren't nessesarly up for it.
    I've been to the abandoned Ravenhead Factory, a few years back it was so cool, you could enter inside and have a look around the floors, I got freaked because there was a fire burning on the roof so I realised I wasn't alone I went there yesterday but all the stairs have fallen now so going up their remains is pretty dangerous.
    Anyway, I've had a look at St Joesphs Orphanage and it looks so tempting, I'd definitely visit there at some point with you if you're up for it. I drive too ☺️

    Heyyyy! I've been going about with two friends of mine who are into this too and we've been to some crazy places these past few weeks! It's a lot better to go with people who are actually interested in all of this rather than people who want to go for the sake of it... Haha! I drove past Ravenhead yesterday and wondered what it was still like in there... I went to Billinge Hospital (what's left!) and it's fairly decent. The rest of it is due to be demolished in the nexf few weeks.

    St Joseph's is almost impossible to get inside of BUT... I like a challenge and I'm game if you are! I'm glad we both drive, it makes life so much easier! Haha. Where abouts in St Helens are you from?

    Awesome! That's sounds amazing, oh I might visit Billange Hospital soon myself if it's getting knocked down soon, I've got the weekend off work so could make the most of it exploring there haha.

    Yes Ravenhead is still pretty cool, I might brave going inside the building itself at some point again but it really is falling apart! I've seen some pics on here of when it was all intact and there was old paperwork etc. It would have been so cool to explore it back then.

    Yes I've read a few posts about the struggle to get in St Joesphs lately, haha I like a challenge too so I am definitely up for it

    I've lived all over St. Helens with my family, now I'm living in my own place right near town. How about you?

    You'll have to let us know when you're free and we can sort something out. Are you on What's App or anything like that? It might be a little easier than chatting on here? It's up to you.

    I'm going back to Billinge next week for some footage because I didn't take my GoPro with me when I went with Devy yesterday.

    I live in Sutton btw!
