abandoned/deserted or decaying places you've seen?

Recommended Posts

post up pics or info on abandoned/deserted/decaying places you've visited or know about and want to visit!

 

could be ghost towns, old mining operations, the lost city of Atlantis - whatever!

 

 

previously we've posted about wanting to find a legal way into visit Eagle Mountain... and there was this thread on "places you aren't supposed to go" with some killer photography. and some of our east coast guys visited Centralia, PA.

 

 

then, just the other day someone in a random photo thread on expo portal posted these pics:

i asked him more about the area:

 

this place is in northern france.....just some way above Paris. we went down with a 4x4 club to try out some cave driving. well some people like to walk caves, some like to dive in them so why not drive in them lol.

 

the system is an old ww1 & 2 quarry. it was used to house troops. there is alot of history in this place. the driving side of it is kept away from the historical side as you cant step too much on history.

 

its run as a offroad site throught the year to bring in money for the owner. its such an unusual place to explore with new things being found all the time. i have been twice so far last year. its a 8 hour drive and a ferry crossing , but its well worth the effort.

i'd love to see more from some of our east coast people - some of the hidden old mansions decaying away out in the woods are incredible. many things on private property to, so not seen or tampered with by as many people... post up if you have any pics/info!
