Urban Exploration in the UK
A series of photos of Gosford Castle in Northern Ireland. One of the largest castles ever built in Ireland in the unique style of Normandic revival, which sadly has lain empty for nearly ten years now. It is slowly but surely turning into a ruin. Also, a visit to the abandoned Psych Ward in Morris plains, Greystone
Explorations of abandoned building by Kendall Anderson
Abandoned Airfield from WW2 and Other structures throughout the British countryside
Cane Hill, London. Built in 1882, it was once the largest building of its type, but it now lies derelict - a magnet for explorers, vandals, even filmmakers and artists.
The Canadian Red Cross Memorial Hospital Shrine in Maidenhead, Berkshire, England
Abandoned Britain. This site documents the urban decay of industrial sites, hospitals and asylums
Friends of Williamson's Tunnels. A strange underground kingdom which has lain beneath the city of Liverpool in north-west England since the early 1800s
Re-post: Derelict London
A visit to The Byker Cully. The Cully is where I played as a kid and I'm constantly recalling the stories for people who want to know more about it
Tons of additional links about Ruins and Urban Exploration

Wow! Amazing posts. I used to work at Cane Hill and to see the pictures in this link is eerie. In fact I worked at a (then) newly built part of the hospital which is still functioning but I had my interview in 1985 the main, old building. Very sad and so wasteful but so much history packed into those beautiful photographs. The photographer has a great eye for shape, form and light. There is a beauty in its decay but it is still so sad. I haven't seen it or visited since I left in 1990.
