    Hey there 28DL. Newbie from Liverpool here looking forward to posting up reports of the local area. I have a couple of expeditions planned and if all goes well then I will be posting up reports and pictures very soon!

    I'm not new to urbexing and have checked out a few places locally and a couple of places in Manchester too. I would really love to go to Optimus Prime in Manchester as I never got a chance to check it out when I lived there.

    Always looking to buddy up if anyone is looking for a partner and if anyone wants to tag along on my trips then I'm always up for that too!

    I hope to make some friends and chat to people about urbexing or anything else. I'm not looking for hot tips or exact locations, I am happy to conduct my own research (I spent the best part of last night and this morning looking for the entry into the location I am planning on visiting by looking at old maps and other historical data) I find it to be half the fun.

    Anyway, I've ramble on a bit now so I'll leave it there, hope to get connecting to people soon and I'll dig in and get reading those reports!

    Will be doing some tunnel stuff to get started but there are a couple of derelict buildings I want to check out. What kind of places do you usually go to? Any favourites?

    Generally, I go anywhere in can get into. But I prefer culverts/drains and rail tunnels.
    I tend to focus on derps in the winter and drains in the summer

    I'm planning on hitting up disused railway stuff over the summer. I have a bit of a fascination with the old railways and industrial sectors. I'll check out pretty much anything I can so if I see or hear of something notable I will certainly check it out if I can.

    I started out doing tunnels. Look through the underground forum, there's some nice tunnels there

    Yeah, would be cool to hook up with other local urbexers. I think me and @DanMarrio are planning another trip out soon. Send me a PM and we can chat and maybe sort something out!
