    Hey guys, finally just signed up to this forum after months of browsing. I'm from Northern Ireland, and I'm still relatively new to urban exploring, only been doing it for a few months but it's safe to say I'm hooked. Me and 2 friends have been doing it and searching the Internet for good locations (mainly for the best abandoned locations for photography, but we're also looking for the 'cool' or 'freaky' locations just for fun) and have been on 4/5 outings so far. A few main locations so far include The Hilden Mill, Forster Green Hospital and Childhaven (probably relatively unknown but an excellent location).

    I have a few other locations I'd love to visit but I'm a bit stuck on location for them. If anyone would like to help me out, it would be greatly appreciated but I also understand this is a very 'hush hush' community for preservation reasons. If anyone has any general leads they could offer also, I would be greatly appreciated and I will return the best reports I can supply.

    Many thanks in advance, keep up the good work guys

    Hello and welcome along, the best way to find some stuff to explore is to give the search button a go :thumb

    There's an interesting looking place in a yard off Adelaide St.
    Loads of interesting buildings that look disused in The city centre.

    Have you been to carndue house? ( forgive me if it's spelt wrong) its located at carnfunnock park, it's a excellent place to visit, spooky, chilling atmosphere and great for eerie photo opportunities:)

    I actually went a couple of weeks ago to try to find it with my friend and boyfriend and we just COULD NOT locate it. Probably didn't help that it was like 3AM and pitch black, but regardless we tried for ages and couldn't see any sign of it, wasn't able to see it from google street view or anything. Tips on how to get there would be very much appreciated, but I'm not sure if that's allowed on here? I know some groups can be very funny about telling people how to get to these places, which is understandable

    Hi Jack, sorry for the extremely late reply. I have been so busy with work and havent been exploring much. But if you had some locations you'd be willing to share with me that would be great. I had some trouble with a few before and have managed to find all of them bar one which i think is up the North Coast...maybe you'd have some info you'd be willing to discuss?

    Thanks in advance, Scott

    If you go into the main entrance into carnfunnock country park and drive up to just before the toll both there will be a small inlet to your right. You can either park there or in the actual park depending on hours. Go through the gate in the inlet and soon you will see the house to your left:) was there last week and is in a terrible state. Some interesting features and you can still make it up to the third floor though the place is saturated and ready for collapse so take care
