Urban exploration

Recommended Posts

As per the title just wondering if any of our distinguished members are into the UK scene?

And for those of you who don't know what "urban exploration" is... In brief it is to find and explore abandoned and derelict properties whether they are domestic/commercial/retail/mod sites etc etc etc which sometimes means hoping over the odd security fence Smile here's just a couple of examples.

No good story ever starts with the line "when I was a good lad" Rolling Eyes


Unfortunately exploration is sometimes the only way to see some of these spectacular sights before they are either demolished or renovated so far from the original specifications they are unrecognisable.

Dick I'm yet to participate in any exploration yet but it's definitely something that I want to do as for the eastern block that would be really cool to see.
