Found this via a friend from years ago (Lindsay Marshall from Catless, who helped me set up Cyclenet, years ago).
Anyhow - thought it might be appreciated here. Odd but lovely.
Read that whole story. Don't know why, but interesting.
Very nice. I love finding disused bunkers and buildings when out riding.
The warley hospital page was especially interesting to me, as I believe my great grandad ended up there.
What an excelent site!
Great post brant.
Enjoyed that a lot.
Reminded me of 'Into The Wild'
Not perhaps exactly on the same lines but I remembered a site about this girl who regularly rode her motorbike into the Chernobyl area post the disaster, the site is a bit disjointed but keep clicking on the next page links and it will start to make sense, some very vivid pictures and emotive writing of what is in effect a ghost land and it really brings home the enormity of what happened!
As I pass through the check point, I feel that I have entered an unreal world. In the dead zone, the silence of the villages, roads, and woods seem to tell something at me....something that I strain to hear....something that attracts and repels me both at the same time. It is divinely eerie - like stepping into that Salvador Dali painting with the dripping clocks.
As above - lovely.

I'd love to find something like that. A little hideaway from reality when things get a bit heavy. A space to clear the mind and think of just nothing.
Thats all a bit Jo Burt isn't it?
Thank you Brant, that was lovely, and I'll be bookmarking it. I rather fancy finding somewhere like that when I'm out on one of my Inbreds...
nice tale, reminded me of into the wild, could do with somewhere like that
PLEASE tell me that kiddofspeed isn't for real - but I bet she is...
I'm sure chernobyl motorbike girl turned out to be a bit of a hoax?
There were bike tours but not quite as it was made out.
Hidden Glasgow is great - Forward observation posts are eerie, thank goodness we didn't need them...
A bit more urban ....http://www.derelictlondon.com/derelict_london_com.htm
Should love to see that stuff, too!
