Urbex: Villa Beethoven, Germany – November 2014

Very little information about the abandoned Villa Beethoven on the internet. All I could find out ws that it was originally owned by a wealthy family and when the mother passed away the inheritance was fought over by the children which resulted in the house being sold to a developer. Plans to renovate the property stalled and the house sits empty…

This abandoned grand neo-renaissance styled Mansion was originally a residential dwelling but from the mid 1980’s became a care facility and later a retirement home for the elderly and was linked to the nearby church organisations.

Permission: Moseley Road Baths, Birmingham – November 2014

Moseley Road Baths, located in Birmingham, opened in 1907 and still operates to this day. Very little has been done to alter the layout of the building which means that almost all the original features remain including the private wash baths or ‘slipper’ baths which date to the pre-war era. The building now benefits from Grade II* listed status and is one of only 3 remaining operational baths of its kind in the UK…

Urbex: London Rooftops, Battersea Park, November 2014 Bonfire Night!

Bonfire Night! We had plans to get up high somewhere overlooking Battersea Park where we knew there was due to be a decent fireworks displace. Sadly our original planned spot was a complete fail, with access being sealed and lots of activity on the site we had to change our plans. sheer chance and a random unplanned backup and we found ourselves several stories up overlooking both Battersea Powerstation and the park where the display was due to take place…

Urbex: The Atlantic Ghost Fleet, France – October 2014

The Atlantic Ghost Fleet aka The Ghost Ships, I’ve wanted to explore this mothballed collection of ships for ages! I won’t be going too much into the history of these ships for now but from what I understand the fleet is still Military owned and is ultimately set to be scrapped…

Urbex: Hospital Plaza, France – October 2014

Hospital Plaza is a rather large complex which features seemingly endless corridors full of bedrooms or wards, a large theatre room and a stunning chapel which remains in near perfect condition.

Urbex: Château Japonais aka Château des Chasseurs, France – October 2014

A huge Château located in a large grounds, Château Japonais aka Château des Chasseurs is quite isolated from the nearby homes.

Not much information about this gorgeous Château… Internally the building had some clear signs of modernization in comparison to the much older external architecture.

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.

Two more trips to this abandoned morgue with its impressive porcelain slab. I went back for 2 more trips with Andy de Kay of Behind Closed Doors, Matt, Danny, Old Skool, and Baron Scotland.

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…
