    Report - Stamford Arms, Little Bollington - June 2018

    June 2018 So this one has been on the to do list for a long time and after many failed attempts over the last few years I finally managed to get it done, not much history exists on this place despite it being a popular venue in its heyday. It was last open to customers under the name 'Home'...

    Report - Town Centre Rooftops, Crewe - May 2018

    May 2018 Much like most towns Crewe has fallen victim to the large 'out of town' Retail Park, a dying town centre that is just a shell of the past with many vacant and boarded up shops and a council who don't seem to be bothered. The roof is nothing special height wise but does provide some...

    Report - Alton Towers Resort, Staffordshire - December 2016

    December 2016 The Visit I've been a lover of the towers for as long as I can remember, having visited many times growing up, so having a crack at this one was high on my list of priorities and over the course of four trips and managed to cover virtually everything. I did two of these trips on...

    December 2017 The Visit Finally got round to doing this one on a cold and damp December morning, I visited by myself and spent about an hour in the building.

    Report - Pleasure Island Theme Park, Cleethorpes - November 2016

    November 2016 I may as well get a report of my own up before everyone gets sick of this one, visited with @Coolboyslim and ran into @Esoteric Eric at the park. I'd hared the park was due to close a few months back but given its reputation for ‘'closing down'' I didn't pay it much attention...
