First visited in December 2011. This was one I really, really wanted to see, so getting in was a great accomplishment for me, given that a fair few had tried, and failed.
Re-visited in May 2012 - Baths were temporarily turned into a community hub.

Otherwise known as the 'Jaguar Mansion' or 'Mansion H'.
Visited in June 2012.
A hotel situated on top of an NCP car park in the heart of Leicester. There was a fire in the laundry room last November and the place has remained closed over since. Surprisingly, there is little vandalism or damage, which makes a nice change.
You could say that this one has been a long time coming, and even more so for some public pictures. After many failed attempts, we finally got lucky and managed to see it before demolition teams move in. This was an interesting one, particularly as I skated here as a child.
Oriental City, Colindale, London
After not being done for a few years, this old gem has recently cropped back up again on the forums. As we were in London kicking around for a few hours, we decided to head over here.
Along with a couple of other derelict cinemas in Bristol, this one has been left untouched for a while. It has also been extremely tight, and locked up well, hence we have only just been able to gain access inside, due to the current demolition process.
On a little mini trip down South, the Bristol massive decided to take a trip to a cinema that had recently popped up on the radar again. This was explored back in 2009/10 by various active explorers at the time, but not much has cropped up since. It's clear, as it often is, how much water/nature has taken over since it closed, and even compared to old photos from those past trips, but was still well worth the detour in my opinion.
As we were in Birmingham for a forum meet up, we thought it only fitting to see some of the local sites. This one, to our knowledge, hasn't been touched by any other explorers, so with this in mind, the determination to get in and see it was even stronger.
