Urbex: The Wizards Theatre, United Kingdom – August 2014

This old dusty abandoned theatre was a little bit of a mess inside, the floors were starting to feel a bit soft and with this being an unplanned visit I was without my LED lights.

Urbex: Krankenhaus von rollstühlen aka Hospital of Wheelchairs, Germany – August 2014

This building from what I understand was once a private residence but was later used as a retirement home / residential care centre which catered for the elderly in their final days. Despite its name there was little evidence to suggest that this building functioned as anything other than a care home. There were a couple of beds in the basement which could have been consultation tables but I would suspect that few medical treatments would have taken place here…

Welcome to the derelict Terry’s Chocolate Factory aka The Chocolate works… My 3rd trip to see the titanic staircase at this abandoned Chocolate Factory, thankfully not a lot of change at this place.
