Back in the game with a permission visit to London’s Aldwych Station with Hidden London on what’s turned out to be the hottest day of the year so far.
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.
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.
An unexpected stop at this place en route back from another nearby location, something different from the usual type of location too. Unfortunately however still battling the rain all day long making photos tricky.
With a handy tip off from a certain newspaper and a quick search on google maps, we were alerted to an old railway line that until now, never knew existed!
I had an urge to get something I haven’t done ticked off the list and this time was an abandoned train. Through all the years of exploring, this is the first train explore for me.
Seeing a recent report on this place and searching for something to do during the corona times, this seemed an ideal place to isolate away from the world and enjoy the urbex world.
Being a regular at the Nurburgring and this place being brought to my attention by a non explorer, the perfect opportunity after a day of storms arose!
