    Hi there. Been a few places but am looking to tag along with a few others. This hobby does not interest my mates and I have had a few too many near misses when exploring alone.
    Anyone local???

    Torrington Creamery looks like a fortress, I take it that looks are deceptive?

    Have you been to the old mill at North Tawton?

    5ft palisade fence is all that separates you from the bowels of a once thriving factory. Doors just left swinging open. Defiantly worth a look as I understand that its being flattened soon. Although plenty of vandalism has occurred at this site in its 25years of abandonment.

    No I have not been to north tawton mill. Didn't know of such a place although it is now on my radar.

    There is a large hotel on the riverfront along Bideford quay about 5mins from my house that I pass daily. That is a fortress. I have scoped nearly every inch and can not for the life of me find a way in. Next door to local cop shop aswel.

    Have you done much around my area then oxygen thief???

    Bits and bobs mate. A lot of it I just pass by as I'm working. I am fairly local though.

    Bah the creamery has one super easy access point ;) If anyone fancies a challenge there is a building in the Police station grounds in Totnes. I had a good look but no luck last time. Anyway welcome along Einstien.
