Wandering about on google satellite photos i came across a couple of possible targets if anyone has information i could use please: I plan on having a hike up there in a week or so... but i dont have time to do many so if anyone could advise on anything that is/n't worth looking at please? I searched for threads but didn't come up wth any.

(am i allowed to post google map links? sorry if not - descriptions too)

on the railway loop near chris birkbeck's rally school there's a "bombed out" building, looks like a church - any info? It's near that sculpture on the coast path. http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=54....0.922744&spn=0.002204,0.005681&num=1&t=h&z=18

second one: just south of newton gill wood, west of boulby potash mine there's a concrete building or two: a pillbox??? have to zoom quite close to see it. http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=54....0.829704&spn=0.004412,0.011362&num=1&t=h&z=17

Norton on Derwent: Bright Steels unit. Looks empty, but not abaondoned. Anyone know? Langton ROad, a little way out of town. http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=54....0.779085&spn=0.008916,0.022724&num=1&t=h&z=16

Former Malton-Driffield railway, there's a tunnel just near wharrem Percy deserted village. Is it worth a gander (I heard its caved in in the middle though) http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=54....-0.671883&spn=0.01786,0.045447&num=1&t=h&z=15

Skipwith common (RAF Riccall) - apparently there's a bunker in the woods "somewhere". Is it a decent one worth finding? http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=54....1.019197&spn=0.017958,0.045447&num=1&t=h&z=15

Anyone been in Selby Council's old offices (they moved last summer) - but EXTREME CAUTION advised - the police station is right next door! http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=54....1.069568&spn=0.004495,0.011362&num=1&t=h&z=17

Selby opposite town hall block of flats been under construction 5+ years but never finished... anyone been in apart from the scum? http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=54....1.074278&spn=0.004494,0.011362&num=1&t=h&z=17

Finally, Mr Marvel's theme park, Scarborough? I know they've built flats on the cafe, and pulled down the water slide park, but anythign worth looking at up the hill? http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=54....-0.41055&spn=0.008929,0.022724&num=1&t=h&z=16

Any tourist info greatly appreciated so i can plan my weekend and go to see something worthwhile. :Not Worthy :popcorn

Howdy, I live in Norton, Bright Steels is very much live the unit you talk about is their steel stock holding building. Burdale Tunnel is the one near Wharram Percy, its a bat colony and has collapsed midway, so if the falling stones don't kill you, the bat preservationists will in all likelihood string you up and set fire to you.

As for the rest, what 'bug superstar' said, he's the schnizz!

yeah I know "just get out there" but really I haven't got a lot of time so I don't want to waste it going to crapola sites... ;)

I think i'll have a goosey at the "church" and the possible pillbox then. cheers chaps :thumb

and this time i might even take a camera instead of the phone! :cool:

Been through Burdale tunnel a few times.

Wouldn't do it again as last time - mid 90's - the place was lethal, with falling bricks and massive quantities of waterlogged shale falling through enormous voids in the roof where the smoke vents have collapsed!

One of these brick structures had fallen vertically back into the bore and brought with it thousands of tons of chalk and clay - climbed up the pile as far as we dare and shone a torch up into the void, which was like a cathedral.

As far as I know, there are two falls, the one in the single track size section of the bore has completely blocked it.

Since we visited, they've bricked the Burdale end of the tunnel up as well and installed a metal access door near the top, which is very difficult to access unless you're a bat or happen to be carrying ladders and bolt croppers with you.

There's some cracking photo's of it on Flickr however and this is now by far the safest way to enjoy this tunnel.

The threads over 3 years old and most of those concerned i"ve never even seen post before (nothing new on here i know) so probably a waste of time mate.
Now if you want to create your own report on something, report away :)
