Burmah Castrol, Stanlow - October 2017

- Posted in Urban Exploring by - Comments
One from over a year ago, for some reason I'd never gotten around to editing my photos from here but I rediscovered them the other week. It was an enjoyable visit and I think we covered most of the place, plenty of stuff to see and not very trashed considering the length of time it seems to have Read more

The Metropolitan Cammell Carriage and Wagon Co. - Midland Works - Washwood Heath - December 2018

- Posted in Urban Exploring by - Comments
On the whole this year has been relatively unsuccessful exploring wise, I've spent the majority of my time nosying around local stuff, with not a great deal of luck so far, but who know's what 2019 will hold for Stoke! Anyway, I was chatting with Speed a few weeks back and he mentioned this place, Read more

Tittesworth Reservoir Overflow, Staffordshire - July 2018

- Posted in Urban Exploring by - Comments
Visited with Humpa whilst out and about in the local area, checking out various new bits as well as some of the old classic places just to see how they were doing (generally quite badly!), also involved a stop off at the excellent BeerDock in Leek, be sure to check that out if you're ever in the Read more

A Bit of the Hockley Brook, Birmingham - January 2018

- Posted in Urban Exploring by - Comments
After having a bit of a failure to start our day we headed down to Birmingham to have a look at a few bits and pieces. It appears that there was far more to see than we actually did see, but it was nice nonetheless, and now I just have an excuse to go back some time. Standard Wikipedia information Read more

Globe Worsted Mill 2, Slaithwaite - November 2017

- Posted in Urban Exploring by - Comments
The A62 is a fairly spectacular road, stretching the 38.5 miles between Manchester and Leeds. Spectacular both scenically and also due to the sheer quantity of derelict things along its way. There are several other mills that I'd love to have a wander around, however so far they have evaded me, one Read more

North Staffordshire Royal Infirmary, Stoke on Trent - 2016/2017

- Posted in Urban Exploring by - Comments
The origins of the North Staffordshire Royal Infirmary can be traced back to quite humble beginnings, with the original Dispensary and House of Recovery that were constructed in Etruria in 1804. It wasn’t long before the hospital had outgrown its buildings and in 1819 the first Infirmary was Read more

Cardiff City Asylum, Whitchurch - August 2017

- Posted in Urban Exploring by - Comments
I'd wanted to get back here since having a whip around the outside last December, so it was nice to get back and actually have somewhat of a proper look. We had no where near time to do a proper job, so will have to head back again some time. Large portions of the place seem to be locked up tight, Read more

Pilkington Glass, Doncaster - May 2017

- Posted in Urban Exploring by - Comments
The Pilkington Glass Company was established in 1826, in St. Helen’s Lancashire, and was originally named Greenall and Pilkington up until 1849. The Kirk Sandall site wasn’t created until 1922, and it was selected because of the canal situated nearby; so resources such as coal and sand could be Read more
