It’s that time again people, time that I take the dive into the darkest depths of the decrepit, derelict and dysfunctional!
These photos come from all over so I will try to explain my best and unlike the last expedition into the unknown, I did not have permission to be in these buildings.
It starts with a trip I took up to Bristol to sneak into old buildings with my dad.
We drove around for ages and found many great buildings but, unfortunately they were all way too airtight to sneak into. There was this great 5 story ParcelForce building and factory I swear to god I will get into one day, but for now, here is what I managed to get.
And that’s where the Bristol lot run dry I’m afraid. It started to storm heavily so we grabbed a bite to eat and headed home. On the way, I spotted an old pillar box in a field and jumped over the fence to get a few shots.
But past there it was way too dark and too low hanging to get inside.
Then, coming back into Glastonbury I remembered several old buildings I’d snuck into to shoot a student film many years ago and as we were passing them, we stopped to shoot some pictures.
After visiting there we passed through Glastonbury and revisited the Morlands site (where I got my last pictures.) I didn’t feel like re-entering the places I’d already been to so I snuck round the back of the huge 4 story building with a chimney sticking out of it and, whilst balancing on a cone and hooking my camera strap round a metal pole to keep it safe, managed to slip through some metal fence bolted into an open part of the second floor (the ground one had all the doors cemented shut.)
After looking into the large overgrown courtyard in the middle of the building I spot a door banging in the breeze and make my way over scaffolding towards it and into a small office area.
Moving further into the offices I found empty areas with worker hats and overalls so doubled back to the courtyard incase anyone saw me.
Heading past the courtyard and up the other end of the scaffolding I found some stairs leading up to the 3rd floor.
The roof in this room had actually completely collapsed inwards and the floor was very rotten so I had to follow the beams across the edge of the room.
Making my way into a large hall I found some stairs leading down to a sort of records area.
Making my way down some other stairs I found a strange heavy set iron door.
Moving past this room I found a huge hole in the floor to the first floor and had to make a makeshift bridge out of a large plank.
And I’m done! I hope you enjoyed my second urban decay exploration! Expect more to come. Until next time then, cya’ll. ^u^
