Maison Vinyl

Urbex: Maison Vinyl, Belgium – March 2017

The abandoned Maison Vinyl, is a small derelict house in a little village in Belgium. Scattered with children’s toys and a room in which vinyl records are attached to the walls, this house is pretty photogenic given its size. Downstairs the rooms are too cluttered with furniture and too dimly lit to photograph properly and there has been a partial collapse in on of the rooms giving way to a basement area. Far past being restorable, this little house will continue to crumble away…

The History of HM Prison Shrewsbury aka The Dana
Constructed in 1793 by Thomas Telford, the original HM Prison Shrewsbury aka The Dana was famous for being a prison of executions. Prior to changes in the Law, the Catagory B/C prison saw numerous executions by hanging which drew large crowds from the location population. The site was rebuilt in 1877 in its current form.

A Welsh Chapel

Urbex: A Welsh Chapel, Wales – November 2016

Lowri and I explored this abandoned chapel in Wales towards the end of 2016. Disused for a long time, the chapel itself was free from vandalism and graffiti and only natural decay could be found inside.  The turquoise painted plaster ceilings were a joy to shoot along with the stained wood of the pews and altar area. The organ was in great condition considering the weather damage to the building and the light was perfect when we visited.
