    Report - Gem Brickworks/Clwyd Alloys - Coed Talon, North Wales - November 2021

    Decided to check this place out as we were passing through the area. We like industrial explores being reclaimed by nature and this place is definitely on the extreme end of that spectrum! History - In 1892 a bed of fireclay was discovered near to Coed Talon and a brickworks was subsequently...

    Report - The Queens Arcade, Rhyl - August 2021

    August 2021 The Visit Okay, so before I go any further with the report, let my say that I wasn't planning on posting this one up, as far as I am concerned I left it way too late. However I have seen I the question pop up in L&R a few times as to whether someone had managed to tick this one off...

    Report - Maenofferen Slate Quarry - Blaenau Ffestiniog, North Wales - August 2021

    This place has been covered loads of times (most recently in an excellent report by @HughieD ) but we've always thought it looked awesome and wanted to check it out. We had a full days childcare so thought we would do the 2 and a half hour drive down and check it out. This is by no means a...

History This was an old RAF facility built in 1939 in the location of a disused slate quarry. Its purpose was to store 18,000 tonnes of bombs underground, following a...

    Report - Pen-yr-Orsedd Quarry - May 2019

    Going through memory cards from last year I found this little gem, the Pen-yr-Orsedd quarry. Although many of these quarry buildings are slowly returning to nature there's a certain level of photographic derpy-ness about them that I love. Maybe it's the fact that most derelict surface stuff in...

    Report - Kinmel Hall - North Wales - May 2018

    After a few failed attempts last year, we managed to get into Kinmel Hall and had a nice chilled out explore. Even met a few fellow explorers inside. I think we may have been the last explorers to get access to the place as some people moved in the following weekend, and I've heard access has...

    This is my 1st post but not my 1st explore. I visited Denbeigh asylum today! 10-05-19 It was a wet wet day to say the least. Gaining access was very easy as there is new metal gating and security boxes on site. I did not see on other person there. The buildings are beautiful it’s just a...

    Information - North Wales Hospital, Denbigh

    Hi everyone I know this has nothing to do with exploring a site however I think a lot of us can agree that the plan for denbigh asylum is an outrageous and stupid one. This is why I have started a petition to somewhat halt or change the mind of those re developing Denbigh. It would mean a great...

    Report - Pool Park Hospital, Ruthin - August 2018

    Closed in 1990, the asylum has recently had its floors repaired but now out of money its left unwatched by security for worry free photographs. Used as an overflow for denbigh asylum and also a prisoner of war camp for a while the history here is quite fascinating. Truly enjoyed the look around!
