    Hey Guys,

    I have been exploring for a few years but I have finally decided to post a report of my most recent.. (Visited on 09.12.14)

    As for the History, forgive me for being a little lazy here.. > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MV_Royal_Iris

    Access was extremely simple and seccu didn't give us any issues, spent a while on the ship and was even spotted by a passing boat.. but nothing came of it.

    If anyone local to London/Essex/Herts fancy teaming up, :D let me know. This is my very first photographed post, even though ive been to a few cool places including Camden Catacombs, Grain Tower/battery/tunnel and the Gunpowder Mills in Waltham Abbey. (I assure you my camera, editing and report skills will soon improve)...

    The engine room is flooded.

    The reason security did not bother you is because there is none. The place looks more fucked than when i stuck up a report in the summer.

    It is currently in the process of being restored. I bumped into the guy who owns it and had a wuick chat with him, lets hope he can actually bring it back to life a little.

    I hope so too!

    Yes the engine room was flooded, I did try to get down there but didn't fancy drowning! lol

    Either way, its a cool place with a great atmosphere.

    Nice pics. Such a shame to see it go even further downhill since my last visit. Did you get a pic of the stage? That's where The Beatles performed in the early 60s. Here's few pics from one of my visits.
