    Report - Cowdale Lime Works, Derbyshire - August 2019

    The surrounding buildings definitely look very neo-egyptian and it almost makes the site look like its a themed area out of a closed theme park. There isn't that much other than the buildings and the kilns to see here, but still, a worthwhile explore. You can check out all my photos from this...

    Report - Crich Quarry, Derbyshire (July 2019)

    Report - Taxal Lodge

    So a little while ago (before kids burned it down) we hit Taxal Lodge. I can’t remember whether it was a school for special needs or a school for boys.. A lot of the building is inaccessible now the stairs and the ceilings have fallen through. Every time I would walk towards the kitchen area...

    East Midlands Explorers

    Hey everyone. I'm fairly new to this site and wanted to say hey. I was hoping to meet some likeminded people in the East Midlands that are up for some group explores. I spend my time between Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire and Derbyshire. I drive so I'm up for travel. Would be awesome to...

    Report - Willington Power Station Cooling Towers, Derbyshire, 7th May 2018

    This is my first post on here so please bear with the terrible pictures as they were all taken on my phone on which I cracked the lens a few weeks before but it was all I had as I had left my camera at home. Anyway, I came up here on a long 25-mile cycle from Nottingham with my friend and since...
