    Report - Rheola Coach House - Aug '21

    This was an unplanned visit - saw an opportunity as I drove past and, thankfully, took it. It's worth noting that, should you visit, the gatehouse is occupied by an irate lady and at least two Great Danes. She wasn't best pleased to see me as I was leaving History The Coach House and stables...

    Report - Glyn Pits Colliery, Pontypool, South Wales

    During March 1994, I spent some time looking at colliery remains in South Wales. This included Maerdy and Tower collieries, the latter of which closed the following month. Whilst I was in South Wales, I took the photographs reproduced in this reports and scanned from the original coloured...

    Report - Llanhilleth Colliery Pit Head Baths - August 2021

    Was on a brief trip to South Wales with little planning recently when I came across this gem. Having already seen Cwm Cokery, I was struggling to find more industrial ruins to go and see. After having a look at Penallta and Navigation Collieries, albiet unable to gain access, as well as quick...

    Report - Overflow Abandoned Tunnel, May 2020

    Yesterday’s explore and one of the coolest ones to date, the overflow tunnel for the waterworks near the Brecon Mountain Railway. Due to not knowing what the tunnel is actually called and countless hours of researching tunnels and history of welsh tunnels on google, there is not much history...

    Report - Morlais Tunnel / Morlais Junction / The Miler - March 2020

    A recent adventure - The Morlais Tunnel, also commonly known as Morlais Junction or The Miler. I have walked The Miler previously, when I was around 16 years of age when myself and my friends used it as a shortcut when we were late home - although, it never seemed as eery back then. History...

    Report - Mid Wales Hospital, Talgarth - February 2020

    When I first mentioned to my friends who are involved in the urban exploring community and have been for a while, most recommendations where “go to Talgarth asylum and have a look - you’ll soon know if this is for you”. Well, that’s exactly what I did... not for long, due to being stopped by the...

    Report - The Davies family Abandoned Farm Houses - February 2020

    Stumbled across these abandoned terraced houses whilst out on a walk not so long ago. There's not much history to be found about the place but from what I have found out from history forums and speaking to an elderly gentlemen whilst walking back down the mountain, these houses belonged to the...

    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 - 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...

    First report, so tell me if I need to add/remove anything. The building: It's proving difficult to find any real history on this building, but it was closed around 2010 as a new comprehensive school wthe as built near by. Before it closed, there were three buildings in Cowbridge being...
