    Report - Rockwood Pigments, Matlock Bath, Derbyshire

    A nice little explore that involved a few buildings, but sadly not much left of the interiors. Both of the mines on the site could be a good further explore, but both look either very dirty or incredibly unstable. You can check out all my photos from this explore here on my Flickr...

    Report - Wapping Mine & Cumberland Cavern, Matlock Derbyshire

    An interesting explore that sadly, we didn't have enough time to complete fully after taking a few detours around the various routes that were on offer.

    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 - 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...
