Stairway to heaven…

A stairway, staircase, stairwell, flight of stairs, or simply stairs..whatever you want to call them..most buildings have them…most abandoned, derelict buildings have amazing sets of stairs!

The Bloody Doors

First explore for a while..it was always going to be an awkward one this..for many reasons! After the usual meet up in some dodgy car park (that’s dodgy not dogging) this time at a more acceptable hour of the day we preceded to advance on our target in the usual ninja style..whilst some of the

Remembrance of things past

It should come as no surprise really…but after exploring many abandoned decaying houses it still comes as a shock to find so many items left behind by the former occupants.

I see Ghosts

I see ghosts…, a photo by The Urban Adventure on Flickr. Whilst the city above partied on…so did we! It’s amazing what you can find if you look hard enough…the world beneath your feet can be a fascinating place to dwell! This place was huge! The pictures just can’t tell you how big it was

Prison Life

A day in Prison..

Our first stop on our little wander across France and Belgium this weekend…after waking up the small village of sleeping Romanians parked in front of the place we thought we’d better make ourselves scarce! After a lovely walk in the sunshine we found our entry point! Easy this Urbex lark ! After 20 minutes of
