Urban exploration - Summerlands, a school and Chartham asylum

Me and my pals have recently discovered something called 'Urbexing' or Urban Exploration. It's been really fun searching for abandoned places and wetting ourselves walking through them, we have found some strange, strange things..

Cable tied prosthetic leg above a doorway in a room full of old life story photos was probably the highlight.

First up, Summerlands care home in Westgate, Kent. It is only recently abandoned (2 years or so) but its surprising what can be found
Now I don't normally do 'proper' photography hence some really shoddy photos, but I had to document these weird things

Roof and ceiling had completely collapsed

Other things we found in here was a completely flooded basement, we almost walked straight into it the water was so still, and there was still water running through which was the eeriest sound.

Then another day we went to a school, I can't remember where it is. Somewhere where there's trees and that.


(This was in a shop on the way there, just liked the old feel of it)

Now on to Chartham asylum, this place was very strange. We went there at night in a little convoy.

Definitely a bat.
Someone cut themselves on glass on the way in (none of my friends luckily)
Saw some nice wall paintings, then realised it was a guy from my foundation year that did them. Love Pat.
