4 hours in the cooler for crimes against urbex

Right for my crimes against the urbex community and not paying a word of attention to the haters and oh noes its locked down and so lets start hating again even tho they had no intentions of goin due to the l33t status they have obtained from previous hate campaigns i was sentenced to 4 hours on the national express cooler the air con offered plenty and delivered nothing but pure sweaty hell.
Right back to London the myth buster road trip so i get to London on sat meet up with patch and ride the tube to Colindale,again according to rumor mill oh noes nothing left all gone well after 3 hours or so and 20 odd shots of pure slide film filth and a quick oh shit run moment we are done there.On to the next one Springfield now this one was a very fun explore as for the access i cant say much but yea apart from all the its locked down due to mc_nebula ms paint map with oh look the current access is still there, and the original access taken was locked down and this was gone before mc_nebula's visit and anyway the original access was very high vis and would not of lasted we get in have a few hours in this very nice site and after patch very close to getting nommed by the very fucked floors we left the way we come. Onto the next site Atkinson Morley hospital in Wimbledon again one that was according to the vine of info gone so again we rock up and find wow whats this its there and nothing had been done due to the credit crunch wow im loving the credit crunch,after a bit of heras ninja and a quick climb we are in at this point we don't know where the security office is so we have a wander about and then patch is taking a shot outside a door in admin and hears them talking and notices that he is outside the security office ah shit run back upstairs and decided to leave. I was not a big fan of the site myself as it was very much stripped prior to the cred crunch and was due for conversion and not much remains but like Pokemon you gotta catch em all and onto the next site.
An old fave of mine West Park asylum in Epsom we had a very fine evening wander,no problems and saw one hell of a lot of the site the highlight was the water tower lush view over to London from there.well we had our fun there and after a mc shite milkshake n tesco sushi we where off again this time to crack one of the hardest sites in London battersea power station. At this point i was so knackered and the thought of drinking yet more relentless was not sounding very nice to me so so me and statler voted with our feet and left, so then starts the long wander along the river to find the YHA for the night after a few externals shots of battersea i do the slog to the YHA and get my head down for a few hours well needed kip. this trip was epic much love n respect to patch mc_nebula and statler for doing the London driving n loosing his fags the random express supermarkets for the food and the NHS care in the community and random cuts for giving us the hospitals again im very gutted i missed the opportunity for battersea this weekend promised much and delivered more shame about the aircon on the coach tho

well i have been a bit busy

right bit of an update here more stuff is now on my site it has been updated and there is more to come. Right so last weekend we did a mini day trip to mid wales asylum talgarth, was nice to see the place again but sadly its now fucked after the owner has stripped the roof of its tiles and now the place stinks and is falling apart quite quick now. also while in the area we pulled by cwm coke works in beddau it is a stinking relic of the former coal industry in wales it was made to produce coke for the steel industry awesome looking site but sadly the fear was strong on this one after stories of the security letting the dogs loose n quite frankly i did not wanna get nommed by a pissed alsation we dicided to bail. On the way home we hit barrow gurney hospital near bristol was nice to see the place again but sadly its been demolished in places and very badly stripped of tiles n lead and what ever else that thay can sell, still has that barrow stink tho. thanks to tumbles for the guide Link the pics from the weekend shall be online very soon.
Right so this weekend im heading over to london to meet up with patch Link and a few others and hit a few sites n one of my faves west park to see what has opened up and see if we can do collindale and springfield asylum then when the darkness falls onto battersea and a few high places to do some sick night shots of london the t64 is on standby and waiting for the darkness
more to follow monday when i get back

good bye cornwall hello devon

well today is the end of the 12 months of abject hell bought on by living in a dive of a student house and the flat mate from this is all to change now with easy cheap access to london via mega bus and a location that is more conducive to getting the project done now to find a job and get a few more sites done let the main bulk of my work commence this summer

urbex as we know it is dead

After having this blog for quite a while iv'e decided to get around to using it and having it linked to my site. So the general overview is urbex is dead as we know it after the last 12 months of listening and reading the huge interforum rants and bitch fests and by my own guilt partaking in one or two ive decided ive had enough of the haters and attitute crews that UE is attracting at the mo. Decided to take a step back and become one with the shadows and go about it for my own gains not to impress or get points on someone else the intial aims of urbex have been lost and its a sad site to see

Right on the good side the first year of uni is up, only 2 more to come thank god. And i have a summer of work and shooting for the major project that documenting the decay around the UK this project will culminate in a book and a exibition of my work well this is the plan. i have a large upgrade on the site so look out for that
