I’m alive and back on the urbex game, or at least when I get a chance! So given the opportunity to check this place out with another local explorer, how could I say no?
Taking an unlikely turn from my usual self and deciding to walk to work for a change, I stumbled across this… thing, that I have no idea what it is.
After being tipped off and visiting this place a fair few months back without my camera, the perfect nights opportunity appeared and grabbing my camera I was on my way.
On a total spur of the moment decision, I decided to explore The Green Man pub after forgetting my camera on a previous visit. Yep, facepalm moment that one was!
Knowing this place was derelict for quite some time and never finding the oportunity to explore after rumors of local authorities using it for training, I was suprised to find nearly every door wide open.
After memories of passing this place and being dropped off in the carpark back in the college days, seeing the pub boarded up meant it’s been on the list to explore for quite some time.

Interesting explore this “local” one was, I was amazed to find majority of the furniture and appliances still stored inside! Unfortunately our visit was cut short after setting the alarms off one too many times, so not many picture… not that anyone actually arrived, however we thought we had pushed our luck a little too much already.
Having driven past this place for literally as long as I can remember and each time noticed how derelict it was becoming, the opportunity finally arouse to explore along with Tiny Urban Exploration.
With a very cold -3c start, we were off to the Vagrant Cells in Melton Mowbray. Not really knowing what we were looking for, we immediately discovered the main building was abandoned and looked nothing like the pictures we had come across online of the cells.

After hearing rumours of this place undergoing works I thought I would go see what was going on as I was in the area. On approach my jaw hit the floor with the horrors of what used to be Sovereign House, it’s gone! Is it wrong to feel slightly emotionally attached to a bunker that kick started my love for urbex when I was a kid?
