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.
The Bradford Arms
One of the more interesting ones wa
I didn't do many touristy expeditions while in Bangkok and had no idea what to expect when @goblinknackers suggested we visit this complex of temples which is only around 10 minutes by taxi from the Prince Palace hotel.
The entrance cost was 200 BAHT which is approximately £5.13 or $6.60 US at cu
I’m struggling to upload images today using the busy dapp.
The wifi at the hotel can be a little iffy and this is my second attempt at posting tonight.
I bailed in the bowling as I was too knackered to go through with it.
The event looked great and the food was awesome but I’m not really into bangi
This is the one of FOUR Urban Explore successes, I and @goblinknackers visited quite recently in the playground of Bradford, West Yorkshire.
I call it a ‘playground’ as every other building appears to be crumbling, falling down, contains smashed windows or has some graffiti.
The New Inn is located
Weeks before, we visited Callis Mill close to Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire and inadvertently spotted a boarded up pub looking very sorry for itself.
I always intended to go back to ‘The Woodman Inn’ though a quick check told us it was sealed and inaccessible via conventional methods.
Several weeks back I got a message from @mender1 that Rosebank Mill had been infiltrated by the ‘heavy gang’.
What that means is someone’s made a big fucking hole in a previously sealed entrance so now we can all go in, look around, take photographs and leave hopefully with our scrotums still attac
Some days are better than others when it comes to the life of the Urban Explorer.
Take the day we visited Jubilee Mill (my last post on this topic). It would seem that it was a crappy trip and a failure.
What I failed to mention is that in close to proximity to ‘the mill’, we noticed a pub in a rat
You might call it luck but it’s been some time since I have marked an Urbex attempt as a failure.
It happened more when I first started but the more I do, the more daring I become which can turn a fail into a success.
Not so with Jubilee Mill, but I do have a story to tell.
Like most mills, the lo
Some places are off the radar and need to be sought out. Rakewood Lower Mill is an example of this and you won’t find it on any of the Urbex UK web sites.
A simple search for certain keywords led me to this mill which has been closed since the 1960s and despite several applications to demolish it,
After conquering the Yorkshire Three Peaks I was a little crestfallen. It does get addictive climbing these fells but the closest ones to me are within the Lake District which is around 60 miles one way.
I wanted more, and bigger ones than last time. Driving all this way is not my idea of fun but t
Having felt unsatisfied with our first visit, I suggested to @goblinknackers that we returned to this fortress of a mill to see what we missed the first time around.
Due to some weed smoking thugs, one of them wielding an air rifle, we were cut short on the initial visit.
