Old military hospital

Its been a while since we went there but i didn’t find the time to put this set online, so there it is!
It is a military hospital, that was abandoned in the mid 1990.
As you can see it has been trashed, stolen and the basement is flooded, so the building is really in bad shape.

Underground water reservoir

After a failed attempt at the malt plant, we found a manhole that leaded to a immense underground water reservoir.
The reservoir is made of two big chambers like this one, it is really huge.

This is where the water is collected.

We entered by this ladder.

There were some other small drains about 4″ high.

Those little holes lead to the other section of the reservoir.

Benny farm

It’s been a while since we explored Benny Farm, but i haven’t found the time to post it.

This building is part of an apartment complex that have been abandoned since around 1996. Some buildings have already been renovated, but there are still 3 abandoned ones.
The building is in horrible condition, there are clear signs of water infiltration and fire.
The view from the outside

The first floor, the most decayed one

Some parts of the building were in better shape

A trashed bathroom:

In this apartement most of the floor was unsafe so we decided not to go farther

We finished our visit with the basement

Wellington Tunnel

The other day we were wandering in the streets, looking for something to visit.
We were happy to find the door of the Wellington Tunnel entirely unlocked so we went inside!
This tunnel was built in 1931 but was abandoned in 1995, it was replaced by the Wellington bridge.
A picture just after our entrance:

At this point it was complete darkness.

As you can see it the tunnel is flooded, there is a good 2-3 feet of water at some places.

The end of the tunnel has been blocked when the bridge was built.

This part of the tunnel seems to have been used for the ventilation.

We ended our visit  here and left using those old emergency stairs.

Geo Reed plant

This time we went to the old Geo Reed plant, in Saint-Henri/Westmount.

This is a cool spot but not exceptional, and is crowded by Graffitis artists,it’s still worth going.
This is soon gonna be transformed into condos, go there while you can!

The ground level floor, its really muddy

An old elevator shaft:


This is the first floor:

This factory is composed of many big rooms like this one. I am not sure what it was used for.

Every non-concrete walls has been destroyed like this one

The building is really falling apart.

I would recommand wearing good boots, there is glass everywhere on the floor.

Finaly the roof!

There is tons of trashed objects around and inside the factory, like this old car.

I wonder if it still works :p

Abandoned apartments – NDG

Last night we explored an old abandonned apartment building in NDG.

This is not the most interesting exploration we made, but there is still one apartment intact, with all the furnitures.

First the basement, the most decayed part of the building.

The front door and the main stairs

The first floor, still really decayed.

Some old food left…

There was still some stuff left everywhere, this is an old toy.

Now the only intact apartment, you really feel like someone is still living there.

One of the two rooms.
It might not look like it but it was at night, i had to put a really long exposition to be able to take a good picture of the room.

The bathroom, still disturbing to think it is abandoned.

The owner really liked chips and coke! Sadly i couldn’t find the expiration date on any bag…

It was really strange, it was like they left suddenly one day, there is even groceries bags still unpacked (mostly cereals and coke…)

The kitchen, again intact.
Also, opening a freezer in an abandoned building is really not a good idea, trust me, it doesn’t smell good…

We later found that it was an old women living there, probably alone. She came from Stalingrad and was a surgeon.

Back to the other apartments…

Tons of books…
