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

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

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

Tower Colliery, Glamorgan - December 2016

- Posted in Urban Exploring by - Comments
There's been various reports from this place covering it pretty well, so nothing really new to add. We had a really nice relaxed morning wandering around, bumped into the security chap almost immediately but he was a good guy and was happy for us to have a look around which was nice. Tower Colliery Read more

Thoresby Colliery (Part 2), Nottinghamshire - September 2016

- Posted in Urban Exploring by - Comments
Went back again recently and managed to get around to a few more bits, glad that we managed to get one of the two headstocks done. The only way we found of doing the other was incompatible with my bone structure unfortunately. No demolition team this time, just security and his van load of dogs. Read more

Thoresby Colliery, Nottinghamshire - September 2016

Bit late to the party on this one, I'd been wanting to come back since making a passing visit whilst the place was still operating in 2014. Plenty of things got in the way of visiting but finally I got around to it. Almost too late really, demolition is well under way, they even seem to be working Read more

Anglesey Aluminium Metal Ltd, which shut down on 30 September 2009, was a joint venture between the Rio Tinto Group and Kaiser Aluminum. Its aluminium smelter, located on the outskirts of Holyhead, was one of the largest employers in North Wales, with 540 staff members, and began to produce Read more

NT Frost Electroplating, Birmingham - January 2015

- Posted in Urban Exploring by - Comments
A good one to start the year off with, nice meeting Clebby too, always good to put a face to a name. This place is the result of an amalgamation of 3 or more once separate factories, as a result there is a mishmash of different architectural styles reflecting the different eras that they were Read more
