Middleton Mine, November 2012

I've been waiting over three years to go here but due to one thing or another it just never happened. 
However with a weekend off and some good company I finally  found myself under the moores of Middleton, a small village in Derbyshire set in the southern margin of the peak district where the last working limestone mine in the uk is located.

Regional Government Bunker SRHQ 4.2, Hertford

This bunker hidden under Sovereign House in Hertford has always been at the back of my mind since I first heard about it in 2004. Local newspapers at the time were always mentioning secret tunnels running throughout the town and this bunker was said to lead into them. So not only a bunker to explore but apparently an extensive set of tunnels too? Surely this was to good to be true?

Underground Headquarters, July 2012

This site will remain unamed at the moment because of the risk of getting it sealed preventing other explorers from seeing it.

Highland Manor, June 2012

Wow where to start on this one! I'd heard this was a 'top drawer explore' but even after being suprised at photos i'd seen, That didn't stop me from being blown away from the moment I got in there.

Goodmayes Asylum.

Right, So I'm trying hard to catch up with some old reports, This ones from back in December last year. Peach and myself decided to check out Goodmayes asylum, But mentioning this to Skeleton Key whilst he was ill turned out to be a bad idea.
He'd spent the previous few days resting up at home suffering from a punctured lung,
But instead from missing out he insisted on coming anyway.
Apprehensive at first but pretty sure SK would be fine, we headed off. 

Old Church Hospital, Romford.

Positioned in the middle of a very modern looking part of Romford you will find this little gem.
When approaching the building from the road I couldn't help but think of the Disney film 'UP'.
It reminded me of the little old guy's little house positioned smack bang in the center of an ever growing city.

The Mortuary, June 2012

Due to the sensitive nature of this location it cannot be named.
Whilst out checking a few possible leads, We heading into a partially disused hospital in the hope to find something to explore. What we found was not what we'd bargained for.

Healings Mill, Tewkesbury, April 2012

To say we should have chose a better weekend to go away exploring would be a huge understatement.
The weather was terrible!
It's been weeks of none stop rain recently and where did we decide to go? Tewkesbury,
A town known for it's severe floods.

Harpenden WW2 Air Raid Shelters, April 2012

Whilst researching the WW2 shelters in Luton I got onto thinking that if they had shelters built there surely some of the surrounding towns would as well?
So after randomly typing in towns near Luton into Google, Harpenden popped up with 4+ shelters scattered around the town. Bingo!

Straight to Browns!

The Crooked House, Essex, Jan 2012

Whilst visiting family in a tiny village out in the sticks of essex I stumbled across this little beauty.
From the outside you would expect nothing short of a stripped out, damp mess.
However to my delight was full of little features that helped to build up a story of the former owners.

Cardington Hangers, December 2011.

  Explored with Skeleton Key and Peach.

I swear I was almost speechless for the first twenty minutes or so after gaining access, The absolutely immense size of these hangers cannot be disribed in words or captured in photographs.
It simply has to be experienced first hand.
