Fails of the Urban Explorer: A Quartet of Failures III


last month4 min read

Continuing my series of ‘Fails’, here are a few more to look over. These were not all done on the same day and are in different locations in the north-west of the UK.

Some of these I was expecting to get in, but because of their exposure on Facebook, they have been sealed up very quickly.


It has made me think twice about placing my content on this popular social media platform. On one hand, I want to advertise HIVE, on the other this can happen.

Maybe Twitter is the way to go, or I should be selective about what goes on to Facebook?


Eccles Crown Theatre

As nobody had mentioned this historic building in what seems ages, I was anticipating this one to be a, ‘no chance’ visit and was correct.


I didn’t know they were converting it into flats, which sucks.


…’they could at least let me go in and have a poke around first’


Half of it has already been demolished.


With CCTV everywhere and every possible hole sealed up, this was a definite no-go location. It does look imposing and awesome though.


My record of getting in cinema’s and theatre still stands at an abysmal zero. I feel there is little point returning to this one.


Unnamed Building

While passing through Haworth in West Yorkshire we spotted this old hulking building.


It was next to the main road and even worse a bus stop with people hanging around; not good at all.


We didn’t jump the wall as there seemed little point, someone had done well with the seals.


The obvious weak point is at the bottom center. What looks like an embedded plaque halfway up the wall had no writing. We were not going to get in there.


Church of Christ the King

I was expecting to gain access to this offbeat modern style church but it has very recently been sealed.


At a guess, this was Facebook and its public exposure to being accessible as it has been posted recently.


Around the back looked like somewhere in the Amazon jungle, a few years of neglect causes this to happen very easily.



I was quite miffed at being denied access to this one, my success with churches as well as theatres is not so good.


Rose Court Infant School

I was pre-warned that access to this ‘school’ that doesn’t look anything like a school would be likely blocked.


Having been in the newspaper is even worse than being exposed to Facebook.


I am seeing this newspaper crap more often recently; they don't pay the providers of information and reveal the streets where the buildings are located.


If they ask me for permission they will get a big 'fuck off' from me. Its no wonder they are inst-sealed or worse desecrated before that can happen.


More recently Rose Court Infant School was opened up for a very short time and very quickly re-sealed.


It may look isolated but it's on a busy road with a wall separating it from us and the general public. Inside is a very cool spiral staircase which I am not now going to get to see.
