The Ford Transit Van Factory
The now abandoned Ford Transit Van Factory near Southampton has some real history to it. The Factory was initially built as a shadow factory in 1939 near to Southampton Airport and was originally used to produce aircraft parts. In particular the factory, during World War II made components for the Supermarine Spitfire and later was…

An Abandoned Bulgarian Theatre
The only other decent location we had on our list in Bulgaria... this nice little decaying theatre which sits abandoned in a small town way out in the sticks. From what I understand the theatre was part of the soviet regime and used to show films from the state but after the fall of the…

I'd be interested to hear your guys take on this website that allows people to purchase prints of images found on search engines using the loop hole that they do not host the images and the images are chosen and therefore supplied by the customer who on their logic assumes the liability for the copyright infringement. I'm sure it's probably still breach of copyright on their part but would be interested on your opinion.

Yes they are trying to argue because their store front is a search engine of search engines that when the user chooses the photos they are effectively presenting the image to them to print it's a nonsense argument on their part but seems to be making them money

Gorgeous Cityscapes of London at Night!
Another late night high rise mission! Yet another rooftop in London, this time a random construction site with a rather impressive view. Fortunately much taller than the first spot of the evening this one provided much more appealing wide views of the capital city...

An Abandoned Health Resort - Germany
This abandoned grand neo-renaissance styled Mansion was originally a residential dwelling but from the mid 1980's became a care facility and later a retirement home for the elderly and was linked to the nearby church organisations. Villa Woodstock as this place is most commonly known, was apparently set for demolition before a private investor stepped…

The Atlantic Ghost Fleet! Abandoned Destroyers and Anti-Aircraft Cruisers!
The Atlantic Ghost Fleet aka The Ghost Ships, I've wanted to explore this mothballed collection of ships for ages! I won't be going too much into the history of these ships for now but from what I understand the fleet is still Military owned and is ultimately set to be scrapped...

London Rooftop Photos
Not content with the two initial rooftops we continued on to a third construction site, this time with a bit more of a central location within London City. Once up high we had an amazing view over Tower Bridge and the illuminated London skyline.

Miranda
The abandoned fairy tale castle, Castle Miranda aka Château de Noisy stands rotting and crumbling atop a large hill in Celles, Belgium. Surrounded by Forest, depending upon how you approach the building you are pretty much on top of it before you can clearly see where it is located....

Car Graveyard!
No information on this one for the moment, I may populate this report later with text but for now its a big hole in the ground, aka a Mine that has a pretty awesome feature to it...a huge cascade of abandoned vehicles flooding in from a hole at the top into a lake, now presumably full of all sorts of skin rotting chemicals :).

Brillaint placer to eat in or order takeaway / delivery. The menu is plentiful and differs from that of the standard Indian dishes owing to its creative dishes from other countries. I've never once been disappointed with a curry I have had from there and I'll continue to go back. Highly recommended!

Any Samuel Smiths pub is a winner in my book. This is the closest one for me and although I've only been in once or twice the staff are very welcoming and there is a friendly atmosphere. Traditional interior with seating outside I'd definitely recommend dropping in if you are local :)
