With a slightly later Easter weekend start to the day than usual, making my way over to a certain church in Essex to meet with onethirtytwo_ to kick off the days splore.
Another great explore on what turned out to be a great night with three locations only walking distance apart. It was also great to explore with a new face to the group and an awesome excuse to play with new camera equipment resulting in some of easily my best urbex shots to date.
Decided this would be the night to step up the photography game and with a rather awesome new tripod investment and avoiding the auto mode all night long I got what are possibly the best exploring shots yet. We even decided to do a little light painting with blue LEDs, because we could of course.
Knowing about this site for a good few years now but totally slipping my mind, we finally got the opportunity to explore this place and with some new faces too. A first night time explore for myself so my pictures are pretty pants, but you win some and you loose some and a great explore none-the-less.
Another slightly failed attempt from today, but definitely on a return visit card. I almost wasn’t going to bother uploading these due to the distinct lack of pictures but from what I did manage to get shows what could have been an amazing explore.
The derelict remains of St Mary’s and All Saints Church is situated in rural Thundridge, Hertfordshire. Although the building is Grade II listed all that remains is the old stone tower and abandoned graveyard.
These ruins are often known to the locals as Cold Christmas Church, adopting the name of the nearby village of the same name.
Tucked away in the middle of nowhere, undisturbed and forgotten, stands Preistwood Chapel. To this date I am still unable to find any information on this location so all I can say is it’s a stunning undisturbed location, great for a half hour explore… between the hour spent locating it and finding the way back out of course.
