    6 Overgrown Cemeteries, Tombs and Catacombs

    We’ve all experienced those cliched opening scenes of horror films where the wind whistles through the trees of an overgrown cemetery. But some cemeteries are so eerie that it’s hard not to be taken in by the tangled grave stones fit for any Hammer Horror production and catacombs worthy of Indiana Jones.

     
  • Abandoned Cincinnati Subway

    Abandoned Cincinnati Subway

    Abandoned tunnels are enough to spur the imagination of most urban explorers. The subterranean world beneath some city streets is a labyrinth of deserted subways and abandoned stations. Cincinnati not only hides America’s largest abandoned subway, but one that was also doomed before the completion of the project could ever be realised.

    Silent Cinema: 8 Abandoned Theatres and Movie Palaces

    The irony is all in the name! The abandoned Joy Cinema in New Orleans is a sorry sight today. And while their names may not pose such a paradox as “the Joy”, these 8 old movie palaces look like their best years ended with the passing of the Golden Age of Hollywood.

    Boneyard: Rusty Metal Machines & Nullified Neon Signs

    Boneyards are strange and often fascinating places, where yesterday’s cutting-edge technology rusts away until the time comes for it to be turned into Coke cans.

    Lost Villages and Shipwrecks on Scotland’s Mysterious Islands

    For thousands of years, human beings have successfully adapted to their environments and coped with some of the toughest challenges that nature could throw their way. But some places are just so wild that after several millennia, hardy settlers have little choice but to abandon their homes. As such, the lonely islands off the north west coast of Scotland are a swirling mixture of windswept grasslands, craggy sea stacks, shipwrecks and abandoned settlements.

    Abandoned Antarctica: South Georgia Island

    South Georgia Island emerges from the ocean just north of Antarctica, making it one of the most isolated and inhospitable places on Earth.

    The Abandoned Side of Houston, Texas

    The Houston skyline reflects a glittering and modern city – the fourth-largest in America, a huge port, home to the Lyndon B.
