This is our blog.
A part of the website that contains everything that we haven’t really figured out what to do with – mainly us rambling on about god knows what for whatever reason. It’s our brain dump of hopefully interesting articles, sometimes a photodump and other times a pool of ill thought out words.
Welcome, we hope you enjoy it.

Hellingly. The forgotten Asylum of the south; 20 miles to the north were both West Park and Cane Hill brimming with interest and rooms crammed with items to rummage through. Hellingly, sat nestled in the middle of the East Sussex … Continue reading
When we first started out exploring, there was little interest in the world of Exploring from the papers, magazines and the media world. Security at most sites would look at you in a perplexed manor when they found you photographing … Continue reading
Once a weekend every year, during September, the country throws open its doors and welcomes passersby into the Countries heritage hidden in plain sight. The following weekend, London does the same thing. It’s like exploring, but a little more civilised … Continue reading
It happens time and time again, derelict buildings succumb to an act of vandalism, metal theft or the curse of the developers. If you spend any amount of time on any of the numerous urban exploration forums, you will notice … Continue reading
Reblogged from the subsection: For the last 9 years of operating TheTimeChamber has always had a photography section glued to side of it. We haven’t ever done much with it, other than sling up a random selection of photographs that we … Continue reading
Cane Hill. The legend. One of those places we doubt very much that we’ll ever see something of it’s like again, outside of bankrupted small time engineering firms. It had everything you could want, great dereliction, piles of interesting tat … Continue reading
After a recent mention on Twitter by a fellow explorer that linked to our Chernobyl pages, we realised that we never told our the full story of our visit. Aside from a few rambling stories in the pub, we have only … Continue reading
Here on TheTimeChamber, we have two obsessions. Asylums and Cold War Bunkers. We love a good bunker. They put our imagination right in the heart of a Hollywood blockbuster. OK, we’ll admit it takes a little to get there as … Continue reading

For those that have noticed, we have been very silent for most of 2015 and very little exploring happened. We haven’t meant to neglect the website, photography and exploring, but life took a turn we hadn’t expected. But, we are back … Continue reading
We have been busy at work, but as you may have noticed, not on this website. TheTimeChamber has been part of the team that has resurrected the old County Asylums website. It was a lot of hard work over the … Continue reading
Every now and then, eBay throws up an unexpected gem and we snap them up in an instant. This one was just the same, an article on Mental Hospitals from 1953 focusing on the Winson Green hospital in Birmingham, which … Continue reading
Having been in hibernation for quite some time now, we often find ourselves in a reminiscent mood. A number years ago, back when we first started exploring, a derelict piece of industry popped up right on our doorstep and we had … Continue reading
Every explorer has them, those that say they don’t are probably lying. Furthermore, many of the exploring blogs that inhabit the web appear to be epic success after epic success. Failure doesn’t generate interest, no one wants to hear about hours … Continue reading
