I’ve always enjoyed exploring. I grew up on the outskirts of London and there was always something to explore, often further than I was supposed to go, but that never stopped me. Fences, gates and ‘Keep Out’ signs didn’t stop me either; as a teenager, I seemed to consider their messages an optional instruction and I opted out.
The mystery around these properties, along with my vivid imagination hooked me in and of course, I’d found some like-minded friends. These expeditions usually took place in the daytime with little key ring torches and quite often ended with security guards and caretakers chasing us away.
These days I’m a little more careful; I have a fear of breaking myself and I’m not in a hurry to be arrested. I still go exploring and I still ignore the ‘optional’ warning signs. I’m in the process of making a website to let everyone know what there is in my local area to explore. Some of the places are open and free, some are locked tight and others are pay per view. If you would like me to include anywhere you think is relevant, please drop me an email, but first, please check out my site:
