    Hey,

    I'm a new member from Nottingham. I've been to a few locations but nothing of much substance and was wondering if anyone could help. I've been trying to research locations to go to by looking on here and while i have found a few sites i would like to go to i have no idea how to locate them. I've tried googling the names and other things but mostly to no avail. Can anyone help with how to find address or locations?

    I'm also hoping to find other urban explorers in the area who I could tag along on explorations with.

    Thank you for reading and hopefully replying.

    Firstly welcome to the Forum.
    There are other explorers in the East Mids, but not many in Shottingham. There's loads of us in Leicester, both topsiders and drainers.
    What kind of stuff are you looking for? Tunnels are easy to find, provided you have a rough idea of where it is and an OS map(This is helpful - http://www.forgottenrelics.co.uk/tunnels/database/a.html) . Culverts aswel, follow a river on a map and look for a gap in the blue line and confirm with satellite imagery. Buildings can be both easy and difficult. Walk around areas where you know there is a chance of empty structures, work out the address and google will become your friend :thumb Also trawl through local papers(http://www.nottinghampost.com/, http://www.chad.co.uk/news, http://newarkadvertiser.co.uk/, http://www.meltontimes.co.uk/) or google a town name with things like 'business closure' or 'derelict' etc
    I've been doing this for 4 years and I'm only just beginning to master research, but others take to it better.
    It's fun to explore places that you have seen on the forum, some of my favourite explores have been ones I originally saw on this site. But finding a new place has a special buzz about it, especially if you've put a lot of hours and effort into it :thumb
    I hope this has been helpful
    Looking forward to some reports for Notts :thumb

    Thank you will have a look into all this. I prefer derelict buildings personally and am able to travel that's why i have been trying to find the address of places on here but i'm not having much luck. Thank you for your tips.

    I've have seen a lot from Leicester so thought it was quite active but please let me know if your ever down here.

    Posted my first report just now just waiting on moderation. Been on a few small explorations and will be posting them in the coming days.

    I'm from Nottingham and have also wondered about places to visit. I'm not too keen on places in the center as they will more than likely be full of chavs and smack heads. Not to mention the amount of vandalism caused by said parties.

    Ive had a bit of luck venturing out into Derbyshire - Ambergate to be precise. I've done a couple of reports on them if you want to check them out? One is waiting for moderation though.

    I am more than up for meeting up and exploring with you If you want :)
