    Report - West Sussex Industrial Unit - June 2020

    This was mine and my wife's 2nd explore. It was great fun with lots to look at and lots to question. I couldn't find much history on the place other than a major fire on one of the units in August 2016. Based on what is left behind, like the TV, an election poster and the caravan, I would hazard...

    Report - Old sorting depot, West Sussex - February 2020

    I've seen a couple of posts for this place before. Apologies for posting it again but it's my first proper explore with a decent camera. I went here a couple of months ago and couldn't get in at all - got lucky this time! Actually, it was fairly easy to get access. The space is enormous inside...

    Report - Penallta Colliery, South Wales - January 2020

    I've always loved exploring around this spot, purely because there's always something new to find whenever I go there. Outdoors, the winding wheels still exist and still turn (in the wind). You have to climb through a gap in the fence to get to these structures properly but a majority of the...

    Report - C.W. Cuff Motor Parts & Salvage, Norwich - June 2019

    So this is a pretty interesting one, and though, sadly I wasn't able to get into the house/main building it still proved to be a really fascinating explore, full of unusual bits and trinkets in amidst the debris. I hadn't realised this until writing the report, but the house part of this site...

    Report - Glemsford Silk Mill, Suffolk - September 2018(ish)

    I'm back again, catching up on all the reports I've not got around to putting up in the last year and more! This time around, it's an interesting little place tucked away in rural Suffolk. Unfortunately I don't know the history of the place, when it closed and why. It's clearly been abandoned...

    This place has been sitting unused for the last 2-3 years amongst various other used industrial buildings, research shows it was just an average run of the mill office block and for whatever reason the company decided to move elsewhere.

    Report - Littlewoods Pools - Liverpool - May 2018 (Before the Fire)

    Explored last year back in May 2018 before the horrible fire that caused so much damage to this iconic building. Was a chilled out explore and amazing to see the vast scale of this place. Hard to imagine the hustle and bustle that must have gone on when it was full of staff. I think my mum...
