Australia Hospital

Abandoned Aboriginal Port Hedland Lock Hospital, WA

From 1907 to 1919, over 1000 Aboriginal men and women suspected of having venereal diseases were rounded up from across Western Australia and marched, sometimes in chains, to Carnarvon, where they were transported to lock hospitals on the remote Bernier and Dorre Islands. When the island hospitals were shut down in 1919, The Port Hedland […]

Abandoned Windgate Farm, Co. Wicklow, Ireland

This site was pretty cool, but it was small considering a lot of rooms were inaccessible due to flooding. The buildings that were open and derelict, were all being actively used by squatters it seemed and the amount of rubbish and graffiti implied there was a lot of drugs/drinking going on here too. Overall, it […]

Farmhouse Ireland

Abandoned Farmhouse, Co. Wexford, Ireland

I stumbled on this derelict farmhouse in County Wexford, Ireland one day as I was going for a Summer stroll. Sometimes, the best explorations are buildings you find spontaneously. There were a good few abandoned structures here but most of which were completely boarded up. The areas I did manage to get in to were […]

This is one of the most challenging sites I have explored on my own. I knew security would be very high here, so I opted for a back entrance in. This meant using Google Maps to navigate through several overgrown football pitches and through very creepy woods until I came across small derelict buildings that […]

Abandoned 1916 Boland’s Flour Mill, Dublin (Ireland)

I spent months trying to find a way into this historical building that played such an important part in Irish history, specifically 1916. It is where Eamon De Valera and his men hid out when things were getting heated in Dublin during the war of independence. Another site I’ve explored that holds even more historical […]

Abandoned SwiftCall Centre, Sandymount (Ireland)

When I see a big sign on a door saying “KEEP OUT”, my mind tells me no but my body tells me yes. It is impossible not to go in especially when you know there’s an abandoned site behind it. This derelict call centre was your standard abandoned office – old equipment still there, wires […]

Derelict Ballyfermot Warehouse, Dublin (Ireland)

I get a lot of email requests from photographers, film directors, location scouters and other urban explorers for the location details of certain places I have photographed. The most type of site people ask for details about, is a site with space to shoot photos, films etc. I have personally brought many of these people […]
