Urbex Film Walkaround: Windlestone Hall AKA Tombstone Manor

A brief walk around of Windlestone Hall an abandoned mansion in the North East of England. Sadly it has taken a lot of damage from vandals and thieves, who have even taken parts of the roof creating a lot of damage inside.

Urbex: I had the pleasure of exploring this large abandoned mansion in County Durham, England. The birthplace of the Conservative Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden, is now in a state of disrepair with smashed windows and paint splattered over the walls. It was up for sale at £850,000 and I believe bids have been made.

Thanks for watching let me know your views below.

Abandoned Balconies

The view from abandonment. Many abandoned buildings are set in beautiful locations with stunning vista's.  Some more grand than others. 

No more morning coffees, romantic dinners while watching the setting sun. No more watching the sunrise with a glass of wine after a crazy night out. These balconies lie empty and restless.  

 

Beelitz Mens Pavillion:

A large amount of balconies can be found here as it was built as a sanatorium and air baths were considered the best form of treatment for tuberculosis.

Mundesley TB Hospital:

The view of this stunning building from a balcony of this old sanatorium. A very interesting building which is certainly out of place in Norfolk UK

Doctor Anna's House

The balcony which leads from the bedroom at a large doctors house in Germany. I can imagine the doctor and his wife having breakfast here in the morning before the days work.

 Villa La B:

The million euro view from an abandoned villa in Switzerland. The perfect view to wake up to before a hard days exploring in the sun.

Abandoned: When Nature Takes Over

Abandoned places are often overgrown.

More often outside than in. However on the odd occasion it does appear or work its way inside.

Usually creeping in through window frames or broken panes.

Sometimes though you find the less ordinary. From mould or fungi, a lone sprout and even full on plant life. 

Here is a selection of my favourite shots where nature has taken over. 

 

Monastere Antionette

A large amount of mould growing on the windowsill in this abandoned Belgian monastery.

Fort De La Chartreuse

 A serious amount of overgrowth in this derelict fort in Belgium.

Abandoned: 16mm F2.4 Urbex Bokeh

The Urbex photography scene is predominantly big wide epic shots with front to back sharpness, a bit of blur makes a break from the norm.

Around Christmas 2013 I bought a Samsung NX1100 CSM. It was quite a bargain and nice and small. The idea of it was an every day camera. Much easier than carrying round an SLR. Later inthe year I got a 16mm 2.4 lens for it and I love it. Really straight lines and beautiful soft bokeh.

It is great for a first post of a new location, a small tease of what its really like due to the shallow DOF and a lot of the image being out of focus.

Here is a small selection of images I have taken with this lens/camera combo.  

 

 Swithland Reservoir :

Thanks for looking as always the images and their titles are links back to the original report. So if any of the images leave you intrigued feel free to check out the rest of the location.

 I hope you enjoyed as part two is well underway.
