If I was to give you some great travel advice about tourism in this rain sodden country it would be...
First check the month.., if it says January then cancel your plans.
...’Alnwick Castle.. as close as we got’...
You see January is a great month to travel if you are the miserly type. The reason f
I have to credit @goblinknackers for discovering T&D Industries. During my Bradford visit in October 2019, he sprang this on me having simply driven past it following this up with some nosiness.
A little research tells me that the company was over 100 years old when it folded.
Just when that was I
One of the final locations I wanted to visit in the Rochdale area of Greater Manchester was Turner Brothers, a former asbestos factory that was reputed to be huge.
For one reason or another the visit was delayed, perhaps in the back of our minds we figured breathing asbestos fumes without masks was
I’m getting a little behind with my Urbex stories, I can see from the file stamps on these images of October 2019 that I need to get posting.
Some of them are huge and contain a lot of images, I guess a few are not going to make it beyond my hard drive.
The bottleneck is the time taken to process i
I read about the Telamon before embarking on our holiday to Lanzarote and thought it might be worth a visit.
The problem is that it’s just a one photograph encounter and I really don’t do those.
If I could clamber on to the ship and properly explore it well that would be something else.
What I foun
At what point does one decide that a prospective Urbex target is not really valid and is really a borefest?
I had this discussion with @goblinknackers recently as we were traipsing through yet another old mill and the yawns were setting in.
I’m in Lanzarote right now and the number of half finishe
Today we re-visited Timanfaya National Park, or what they call ‘the volcano’ locally. It’s funny how years dim the memory, please read on.
My memory was that it should be visited, shouldn't be missed and is the highlight of the island of Lanzarote.
While the latter is probably true, after today’s v
Some of the best places you can find are found by driving past them. Keep your eyes open and you see..., and see much.
I saw this wreck of a place but it was far from good.
Something had been attached to the side of this decaying furniture factory and a little digging told me it used to be a pub,
This is the last of my SteemFest 4 content and is a little different than the normal stuff we have been seeing.
@for91days passed some information on to me about an abandoned shopping mall within the city and so I hunted down the location and was pleased to find it just 2 or 3 miles from the Prince
I seem to have been holding on to this one for the longest time and need to write up my experience of Ponthalgh, Plowtalgh, Powtehalgh before I forget what happened.
It’s now December and was August last that I managed to gain entrance to this wreck of a farm on the second attempt.
The first time I
As is the norm, our not so recent expedition of derelict Bradford brought us more fails than successes.
While every few yards reveals a new target many of them are boarded up or don’t hold any interest.
Some of these places were found by simply walking around some of the most deprived areas of the
My recent trip to Bradford with @goblinknackers was quite a success though I don't know if the city has much left for us after this expedition.
There's always a bunch of fails to go with the success stories, and some tales and memories to tell.
