Remains of our national and local history surround us. Despite the state of flux and change to the urban and rural landscape there are reminders of that history, spanning from as long ago as 5,000 years to our more recent past.
This personal record of visits also includes Urban Exploration of the more recent past, of derelict and abandoned buildings, military installations and defences from WW2, industrial and religious structures, as well as evidence of earlier history. Local connections to past trade and leisure activities are seen along the way, together with various oddities still to be found in town and countryside...monuments, decaying machinery, old street furniture and other charming curiosities.
Most places visited are in and around East Devon and West Dorset, but also include some from elsewhere in Britain. The continuing quest will see many additions and on-going updates to this site, as well as further inclusion of previous visits from the last few years, so please keep looking...and I hope you enjoy the journey.
