    Report - RAF Weston Zoyland, Bridgwater, Dec 22

    This is down the road from me, yet I've never really bothered doing a proper explore until now... was a snowy day again, much like my explore of RAF Culmhead (Here), had a soundtrack of some cars cocking about on the snow for the entire visit. It is mostly open to the public, except for the...

    Report - Greencore Desserts, Evercreech, November 22

    A local one for me, and with the short days over the winter, figured I should finally get it done, as it's been sat low on my list for a long while now. Definitely late to the party with this one, but I've only been doing this a little over a year now. Not been posted in a while either, so about...

    Tonedale Mills, Wellington, April/Aug 22

    Another local one for me, knew about it for a long time, even before I got into exploring. Large mills are a rarity down south, so I couldn't not get myself in the biggest in the South West! Would have liked to have done the Tone Works, but short of shimmying across a pipe, there's no way in...

    Report - Emborough Quarry - Emborough, Somerset - August 2020

    I didn't have much hope in this explore prior to turning up...wasn't even sure I'd be able to get in at one point - but this one turned out to be a pearler! Probably the best one I have done in a while...but fiiiirst, a little background. HISTORY Emborough Quarry is a dormant quarry and has...

    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 - Fussell's Old Iron Works - Mells, Somerset - July 2020

    I visited this site on the same day as my Westdown Quarry jaunt found here: So I have many of the same issues with the photos which have come out poorly due to a dirty lense. Apologies for that. My phone...

    Report - Westdown Quarry - nr. Frome, Somerset - July 2020

    First report for 28DL, I hope you guys enjoy/find some use of it. Haven't been doing much in the way or Urbex the last year or so and decided to ease myself back in with a nice stress-free explore local(ish) to me. Before we start apologies for the poor picture quality, I only use my phone...

    Report (Permission Visit) HMP Shepton Mallet/Cornhill, Shepton Mallet - April 2018

    HMP Shepton Mallet (also known as Cornhill) So this is the first 'permission visit' report I've ever posted. It's not usually my style, but I actually found this really interesting and thought it would be worth sharing some photos from inside the former Shepton Mallet prison. It's open for...

    Report - The Wellington Monument, Somerset - Dec 2019

    Wellington Monument,Somerset First off, this is hardly an epic. It's more in here in case anyone else wants to go and have a poke before it the scaffolding goes or they alarm it etc etc. Anyone who has driven down the M5 and paid attention to their surroundings may have noticed a small...
