    Fascinating. We often spot the disused above ground buildings as we go round London

    This one?

    Link 1: London's Abandoned Tube Stations

    The design of the site could be better but it does cover the topic.

    I had already been planning to post this.

    Yeah that's the site, it's clunky but the info with the pictures is interesting..

    They do all remind me of the film Creep though... Actualy that's why I looked as I had recalled the rather ODD british horror after watching "The Descent" again...

    Am I the only one that finds it all a little bit sad? It always makes me sad to see derelict or disused buildings - especially historical ones that have fallen to ruin when you consider how impressive they probably once were (LeBoyfriend and I are English Heritage members and enjoy touring ruins and learning about the history of the place).

    No you're not. It depresses me too. The other half and I are also EH members.

    I'd like to buy all the abandoned building and return them to their former glory. You with me?

    My son and a friend got into an old abandoned theatre in Portsmouth and took some amazing pictures - so sad though - it was flooded too and has since been knocked down. Buildings fascinate me...I always look up when walking around, it is amazing what interesting buildings have had shopfronts grafted on to them

    LOL That would be cool. Our Zombie Apocalypse plan is to take over Portchester Castle and refortify it - there is enough room in the grounds for modest crop growing and animal grazing - some cows, horses and pigs. It'd be really draughty and cold though...
