Hi Skids, my first post here, but not over at 28dayslater - where I have been a member for many years.

Glad you liked our site, glad you like the pictures - but 'breaking and entering'???

Nothing could be further from the whole ethos of the site!

My friend, we do not break in to anywhere - that is criminal damage, and not what we are about

If you doubt that, then why not join our forum and ask about the best way to 'break-in' - this will prove the point (but only if you don't mind a bit - well a lot - of abuse :|)

Personally I hate the phrase - but the 'mantra' most often quoted is to "take only photographs - leave only footprints" which does sum it up.

Remember that in the vast majority of cases trespass in the UK is not a criminal act (there are a few exceptions, railways, military sites etc) any form of 'breaking and entering' turns that civil trespass into a criminal act - why would we do that??

Please enjoy what we do - but don't lump us in with the vandals, graffiti artists and copper thieves! (we are not all 'chavs' or kids, personally I'm a professional in my late forties, and far from the oldest member - that would be an ex-Colonel in his late 70's!) Many of our members are ex-forces, and quite a few of our 12,000+ members are current ones!

So please - enjoy what we do - but don't miss-label us (we have the UK gutter press for that :shakefist: )

Sorry to have caused offence, 1st impressions and all that! I have joined this morning (before your reply) and look forward to being a part of the site.
I only have a point and shoot at the moment but will soon be getting a digital compact to start me off.
Apologies again

Hi Uryts

Very interesting site.
I worked on a short series of programmes with Nick Catford of Sub Brit for Nat Geographic.

We went to some mazing sites including Dollis and Corsham. It was the rumours of some of the Central London 'sites' that were particularly intriguing.

We have a load of belligerent old buzzards on this site - don't take offence. Trespass is a subjective term.

One of my favourite photo collections on 28DL was the german coal mine changing rooms (no naked men sadly)

A long chain would be padlocked to a numbered peg on a wall, the chain went up to ceiling height to a pulley then down to a large cage that contained the miners clothes and personal belongings. The cages were hoisted into the air, the chain was locked off with a padlcok, no key, cant get the cage down etc, the room had ******* hundreds of these cages, eery as ****.

err I mean great photography.

...and this is Arrse. Why pursue a poster over here to correct a rather dull and subjective point, namely that you don't break and enter but you do trespass? Grow a pair.
Because he has a valid point, and photographers get enough shit already as things stand.
If you don't like it, bog off to a military part of this site and herrumph there instead.

Stumbled on this site through another (unrelated) forum.
A good site combining photography and breaking and entering lol.


UK Urban Exploration Forums
quite a few squaddies (mostly ex-squaddies) involved in this.

i know one particular Green Jacket who is heavily involved.

i admire what they do - they show us things we don't normally see.

So when the none breaking and entering members start putting in claims against the MOD for example asbestos related illness ?? That will be ok will it?
I am dealing with a claim I'm my office at the moment by one of these chaps and it's fuc@ing annoying.

That boils down to duty of care.
If somebody enters your (or the MOD's) property despite being aware they aren't supposed to then its their problem.
If they can enter inadvertantly because its left open then the MOD has failed to fulfil their duty of care.

I help administer a disused slate mine that explorers are allowed to enter, it works legally because they have to make a deliberate effort to get the lock combination to gain entry. By making that deliberate effort to gain entry they are transfering the responsibility to themselves. They have made a concious decision to take the risks that are involved. They cannot enter accidently and we have taken every precaution to ensure they cannot.

Liability is a ball ache but in a case where somebody takes a deliberate decision to ignore the risks the responsibility is their own.

Please ignore this pompous old ****. He gets lost occasionally, and has ended up in the wrong part of the forum and infected it with one of his dull posts.
