Dovestones Tunnel URBEX & Hike

After going here there and everywhere looking for some fun we decided to head over to Dovestones, we ended up having a walk up to the summit and also exploring a tunnel which cuts through the landscape. There is also a factory up here we had our eyes on but that will have to wait

Victoria Train Station/ Optimus Prime… URBEX

This was most definitely our most exciting and audacious explore to date. It involved the exploration of a place which I have used too many times to count as a gateway to the city and many adventures, to see it from this perspective is what urban exploring is all about. Some History: The River and Optimus Prime The massive

Rock Nook Mill (Fothergill & Harvey) URBEX

Fothergill and Harvey’s factory is actually just around the corner from where I live and at one point was the centre of the industrial revolution in Littleborough and has, over the years, been a staple of employment in the area. The building is now a derelict relic of that era. Visited by: Nic, Shorty, Ben

Failsworth Mill (R & J Partington). URBEX

Last weekend we had planned on going over to Greenfield to try Robert Fletcher’s Paper mill, but we soon realised as it was Mothers day the trip over was going to be too far. So on the way over to the parents house we decided to pay Failsworth Mill a visit, this place is actually

Hartford Mill, Oldham. URBEX

I had heard about this place from 28dayslater but hadn’t really thought much more of it until we were on the tram one day, which we did only because the trains were not running. There from the station at Freehold I saw this magnificent old mill and for curiosities sake needed to have a closer

St. Luke’s Hospital…URBEX

I have been interested in visiting this place for a while now after seeing photos and reports online, I had been told due to the state it was in it wasn’t worth the effort. But honestly although it is a bit of a DERP I do love the aesthetic of a completely derelict building and

Mayfield Station/ Depot… URBEX.

What started as a bit of a recce ended up with climbing on the outside of the building 30ft in the air and finally visiting one of the places I have had on my list for a long while, and in enough time to see it before the entire roof was pulled down. Ghost stations

Premier Inn Rooftop. URBEX

Dodge Hill Air Raid Shelter, Stockport. URBEX

We decided to head over to Stockport to check out the air raid shelters over there, I had been told access was quite easy and that there were great photography opportunities down there. Places like this really give you a sense of not only exploration and adventure but history too. Visited by: Nic, Shorty, Liam,

Victoria Arches, Manchester. URBEX

Manchester’s Victoria Arches, or Cathedral Steps is a legendary Urban Exploring location and I have wanted to get into here for a while now. We got lucky in the connections we had through friends and were not disappointed by what we found. Visited by: Nic, Shorty, Lee, Ojay History: The history of the arches is vast and fascinating. Dating
