This is an derelict young offenders institute, which has been abandoned since 2003. It's been bought and is due to be demolished/re-developed, so I'm glad I was able to get a chance to photograph it.

While there wasn't much in the way of personal items left, but the sprawling corridors, peeling paint, and general oppressive atmosphere made for a brilliant explore.

These are a few of my favourite photos, but the whole album can be seen on my Facebook page which is linked in my signature.

All shot with the Fuji X-T2

Great set here. And thanks, I've just lost an hour or so looking through the collections on your facebook page :LOL: Some briliant sets in there, this is a genre I'd love to get more involved in.

Thanks!

Abandoned places are everywhere, you just have to look. Urbex is certainly something I'd recommend, google maps is a great source for places. It's a bit addictive when you start though!
