A failed re-attempt at a well known nearby spot and a long walk to another nearby lesser known spot, we found ourselfs wondering where to head next.
At a very windy corner of the Isle of Wight, at the well known edge of The Needles, sits this rocket testing facility built to secretly test space rockets.
Another unexpected surprise after aiming for another well known nearby site, with additional bonus of the access door being wide open in a welcoming fashion from the cold.
Moving onto another location on a weekend exploring trip away to the Isle of Wight, the Ocean Hotel made for a welcome break from the December wind and cold.
Within the first 30 mins of arriving on Isle of Wight for a 3 day weekend trip of urbexing, we came across this place while stocking up on snacks from a nearby supermarket.
Working through as many locations over a 3 day weekend in the Isle of Wight, it would have been rude not to check out a nice old train tunnel hidden away on the side of a hill.
Having had this place on my must see list for quite some time and some recent pictures from other explorers giving us more of an incentive, a business trip the right direction was welcomed last minute.
With multiple Uber drivers refusing to take us to the middle of nowhere, we made our way on foot to what we thought was only a small number of air raid shelters. We were in for a nice surprise!
Urbex trips are few and far between these days, so for this old pub to appear while working nearby it’s hard not to jump at it no matter how derpy it is.
A visit by chance, being local in the area and a quick search for local spots brought this place to our attention. At first, not even noticing the building being near totally covered in ivy.
