    Report - Car Factory, Dover. March, 2020

    A location I have walked round many times, and watched it fall ever more so to ruin. I wanted to return as all my old photos of this place had been lost when my files were wiped!! Totally forgot to bring my tripod so shots aren't great but give an idea of what this old factory would have looked...

    Report - Guildford Shaft, Dover. February 2020

    Once again, my pal and I heard that the word round the campfire was that this location was accessible. Having only been here once before and my wingman never having experienced it, I set the wheels in motion. So, I called my pal, who was laying on his living room floor pissed as a fart. "You...

    Report - Pooh Battery, Dover. February 2020

    Nothing fancy folks, or particularly exciting by any stretch, but was just one of those days when you have to get out of the house and stretch your legs. Whilst catching some fresh air I decided to go back to a location I first walked round/crawled into a few years back on a very cold New Years...

    Report - St Martins Deep Shelter, Dover. February, 2020

    I first visited this location a few years ago by pure chance when first learning about and exploring the area. I had gone in solo with only my mobile phone, then it was sealed shortly after.

    Isle of Grain - Summer 2019

    So, I have been doing a bit of exploring for many years, going back to about 1997. But have never really shared any of it, so thought I'd start. Summer last year (2019) I decided to visit the Isle of Grain in Kent having heard about Grain Fort, which was built in the 1860's to protect the River...

    Report - Snowdown Colliery - Kent - Jan 2020

    Conducted a return trip here last weekend with a few pals, after a solo visit many moons ago. There is new perimeter fencing in place as well as a security guard. However, it is still easy to simply climb over the front gate entrance (no razor wire on top right hand side) but seeing as security...

    June 2019 I know this has been done many times over the years but it's my first "proper" explore (as in planned) and I was excited to see it, so just in case there are any newbies (like me!) reading or just if anyone's interested to see what the condition of the place is like now, here's a post...
