    Hi all!
    I was told about this site earlier today after showing interest of getting into urban exploring to a mate and after having a quick look around the site I was rather impressed and interested in getting into it more along with a friend!

    I'm 20 and from Newcastle in the North East!
    I'm new to the whole urban exploring thing but I've looked around a few small sites local to me and when I've been to work (railway) as there's lots of stuff like old bunkers trackside and old railway tunnels to name a few.

    It would be appreciated for any good places to go explore and a point in the right direction from people who have been doing this longer!
    I'd like somewhere industrial looking where I could get my car into for some good pictures also as I'm big into cars too.

    Thanks for reading! :thumb

    Nowt wrong with that mate, but "car size access" and " exploring " really don't seem to fit together all that well !:D Got more of a Ninja - style group of people here. Be hell trying to get your ride over a palisade fence !;) (or can just drive through it, but that sorta screws the ninja approach ... :rolleyes: ). It's more of a "Site explore" oriented forum than a "photography" forum. Some may even mutter that dreaded word ..... URBEX :eek: .... if the car isn't 10 years old and fooked to hell...& doesn't have a BigJobs special hood ornament ! :p So Welcome aboard, use the SEARCH box (a lot), Scope out some of the reports on here for form & post a report or 2 , you'll be alright !

    Haha, yeah I thought that would be a problem! :( I'm off work for a couple weeks so I'll be having a look around locally and hopefully get some stuff together to start posting and become more of an active member! :D everyone seems friendly enough!

    Hey!
    Im fairly new to the area and I dont really know any sites to explore up here but if you ever want someone to go explore with Id be up for that. I dont really know anyone up here so it'd be cool to meet a fellow explorer.

    Aye, that would be good!! Where are you from like? & off the top of my head I don't think there's that much without going a little further afield!

    Thanks:thumb I've got a one i need to write up, nothing great but it's a start haha. The other stuff I have is old and missing bits from before I was interested in documenting and just liked exploring with mates so I'd need to revisit sites

    I'm in Sunderland at the moment.

    I'm kinda surprised theres not more up here really, I guess traveling just makes it more of an adventure though.

    Not far at all. : ) I had a little look at the locations map and there seems to be a couple of old asylums around Cramlington/Morpeth that might be worth a look.
