Glasgow Botanic Gardens Underground Station – Billy Campbell Video

Why this video hasn’t even got 1000 views is completely beyond me, this is certainly one of the best exploring videos I’ve seen on YouTube. This was done before we visited the botanic gardens back in March last year. I think it captures the station perfectly. Unfortunately it looks like Billy never went to many places exploring (or hasn’t shared many of his videos) but I would definitely like to see some more of his brilliant work. You can see […]

Glenfarg Railway Tunnels Video – July 2011

We love a good railway tunnel, planning to go to Glenfarg after going through the tunnels at the botanic gardens in Glasgow really whet the appetite for more. The Glenfarg railway tunnels were part of the Perth to Kinross line, due to the terrain the North British Railway had to construct two tunnels with 4 miles of each other. The line was closed on the 15th June 1964 as part of the Beeching cuts. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glenfarg You can see the video […]

Cathkin Park football stadium (Home of Third Lanark) Video – May 2011

Another old video we done last year, the park formerly contained a football stadium, which had played host to organised football since 1884. It was originally known as Hampden Park (the second by that name) and was owned by Queen’s Park. When Queen’s Park moved to the third (and current) Hampden Park, they sold the ground to Third Lanark, who renamed it New Cathkin Park. More information can be viewed here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cathkin_Park The park is currently undergoing a push for […]

Gray Dunn & Co – January 2012

Our first proper explore of the year saw us visit an old biscuit factory in the south side of Glasgow. Originally owned by Gray Dunn & Co the company was later taken over by Bisland Brothers Bakery and is the home of Blue Ribands and the Caramel Wafer (so we read anyway!). The building is fairly large and if you’re a regular driver of the M8 motorway you’ve probably driven passed it without realising what it was. Each floor has […]

Kelvingrove Park Bandstand Video – January 2012

Kelvingrove Park bandstand has hosted many bands and groups over the years, sitting next to Glasgow University it is in a prime position for students. The bandstand dates from around 1924 -25 and it was used all the way up until the mid 1990’s. I actually wanted to include a short clip of the bandstand from the 20’s but was quoted a fee that there’s no way I could justify which was a shame as it looked incredible. Fortunately other […]

Kelvingrove Park Bandstand – January 2012

Due to the inclement weather at the turn of the year we were unable to muster a proper explore for some time so we instead opted for more of a site visit. The Kelvingrove Park Bandstand was built in 1924 by the architect James Miller and was a popular venue due to its picturesque settings on the banks of the River Kelvin. (Click for larger image)   Passed by many a student, dog walker and jogger on a daily basis […]

Glasgow Necropolis – January 2012

With the poor weather at the turn of the year we had no option but to plan for a visit to somewhere locally. The Glasgow Necropolis was always somewhere that I’d known and heard about but we’d never taken the time to visit, so we decided to pay a little visit there. Some of the architecture was incredible with several of the monuments and graves being very ornate. You can watch the video from our trip below. You can see […]

Glasgow Botanic Gardens Underground Station Video

We visited the underground station in the Botanic Gardens in Glasgow as one of our first explores, for most of us it was the first time we had been inside an abandoned railway tunnel. I think we all feel this was the best railway tunnel that we’ve been down in Scotland so far and it would take quite a bit to top it.

Our first video St. Peter’s Seminary

Well it was back in March 2011 that we decided to visit St. Peter’s Seminary, since then an arts group called the NVA have made plans to renovate it and have the existing buildings back in use for art exhibitions and education. It will be interesting to see how it turns out with it’s new lease of life. In the meantime here is the video from our visit:
