Welcome to my website, whateversleft.co.uk.

We’re probably all born with a sense of curiosity.  Exploring for me is just taking that curiosity and fulfilling it.

I started this website about fifteen years ago now –  it was just a place to document my thoughts, words and photos from exploring.   I call it exploring other people will call it various names.

Wikipedia have a nice summary of what it really entails – ‘The examination of the normally unseen or off-limits parts of human civilisation’

Exploring has changed over the years.  What was a closed community with set protocols it has been blown apart with the introduction of social media, youtube etc.  It’s not to say that it’s all bad its just that many people do it for the glory and likes now, it was never about that for me and still isn’t.  Naturally as I’ve got older I’ve slowed down exploring and also protective of sites that don’t need to be plastered over the internet so do not expect weekly content from me and certainly no ‘nearly died’ red arrows on a youtube video.

You’ll find the emphasis on this site is of asylums, hospitals and industry. Exploring covers a vast array of different areas – not just the bits I like but underground, up high, live infiltration. Pretty much anything that is normally off limits.

Not everyone will appreciate what I do, however I hope you enjoy my website.
