    Report - ICI Imagedata, Brantham, Essex, October 2020, nighttime explore

    First Report here! This has already been covered many times on 28dl. However it is still a proper explore and was fun to see. It is, as said before; heavily vandalized and there is a looming feeling that demolition is near. History of this site: There is a lot of confusing history around the...

    Report - JF Pearce & Sons - Shepton Mallet, Somerset - July 2020

    I stumbled across this place completely by accident on the way to another site. Worth a little wonder about if you happen to be in the area. History I wouldn't say the history of this site is particularly interesting to be honest. JF Pearce is a haulage company which serves the south and the...

    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 - 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...
