The ‘Orange’ factory, North Island, New Zealand.

This old abandoned factory once produced the chemicals used in ‘agent orange’ by the US military in South Vietnam. Since then, and despite the controversy, the factory continued to operate under several different names from the 70s till now where it meets it’s demise through demolition.

What a lot of fun this explore was, jumping between buildings we got to see a range of old equipment and science lab stuff. Reminiscing on what used to be produced in this factory was kind of scary really, there is still ongoing investigations into the damage caused by the chemical produced in ‘clean green New Zealand’ to this day.

Tonghui Town – Abandoned Swiss town in Beijing.

Tongui town – This abandoned street was built in 2011 as a ‘bar street’ development.

Six years later and the place is a ghost town, abandoned in central Beijing, there was a mixture of themes used in this European style town including Italian and Swiss. It is unknown whether this site will ever be used as its intended purpose and what a strange sight to see in Central Beijing.

As you can see none of the internal parts of the building were completed and they were all joined together through a tunnel underneath the street, we hope you enjoy the pics, UC.

 

Rest in peace Erskine College.

Erskine college built in 1905 is due for demolition this year and any day now the demolition crews will move in. Urbex Central decided to take one more visit back before it is gone forever, come say goodbye to one of Wellington’s most famous abandoned, ‘haunted’ whatever you want to call it, buildings.
