    Oh how cool! I read the 28dayslater forums all the time, as there are loads of cool tunnels round Mancheter to explore :)

    Really interesting pics, Nick! Have you been on any other explorations?

    I havent really been on any, and those arent my pics.
    However I am planning to go explore the ship myself, and also a stretch of houses where people were evicted to make room for an expanse of expressway. the plans fell through and the houses have been empty for 3 years.
    I plan to go document those places too. :D

    I love looking at urban exploration pics, but a lot of the time they make me really anxious. There's just something very inherently creepy about abandoned locations where signs of past everyday life are still clearly visible...

    Like some of the 'ghost towns' in the west of the USA.
