This is an older article/gallery, but there are some fascinating photos here. Quite eerie.

Feel free to share links, images or accounts of urban exploration here.

Thanks, Brown - you've sorted out my father's non-liquid birthday present. As an unreconstructed Marxist he'll enjoy Rebecca Litchfield's book. There's a great forum full of urban exploring stuff here.

Great site. Thanks for the link, Ambler.

The Bulgarian communist monument is an unbelievable structure:

Cheers for the link. Currently browsing the Odessa Catacombs thread. Getting lost there would be the stuff of nightmares.

Here lies Natasha #4. RIP.

You're not far off, that word in the middle there almost says 'Natalya.' The inconsiderate bitch on the wall is covering the '-ya.'

Ah the Baker St catacombs... The Natasha Files make interesting reading material. One- and two-handed.

So many of those industrial porn photos scream film set. Get the lighting right and you could shoot any crap against it and it would be impressive.

Seems to be some interest in the subject so maybe this should be converted into an urban exploration thread?

Changed the thread title.

Here's a great image of an abandoned silica mine in Wales (from the 28 Days Later forum):

The New Plymouth Power Station in New Plymouth, NZ looks like it was abandoned yesterday. Love the retro control decks; a strange mix of old and new.















Like Ambler said, so many of these places would be ideal for films, music videos... or porn.

Great Tew is a weird one, a derelict mansion house that screams Hammer Films.

It's in Oxfordshire, so must be worth millions even in its present state. Lots of threads at 28 Days on this one, it's a popular raid.

Apparently, until recently it included a garageful of classic cars. Then the looters got going.

Slightly off-topic as it's not urban exploration, but here are some great photos of explorers descending into a Siberian crater:

Ambler, Danny Huston and Marc Forster thoroughly explored that already.

Nazis Germans at home in Argentina... Not much to look at, narrated in Spanish, entirely speculative and hardly urban. Interesting, nonetheless, though I'm still waiting for them to discover the Nazi flying saucer base in Antarctica.



Possibly more useful.

Then again, maybe not ...
