You can often tell when vandals and thieves have been to abandoned places because the walls are tagged and the items are gone. This 1960's Matchbox still sits on the side, untouched. A Matchbox that's worth £160 ($212). If you're a true Urban Explorer then you don't take anything but photographs and videos - memories. Document how life used to be for the people who lived and or worked in the place. When exploring keep things how they were for others to enjoy, don't take stuff or smash the walls in. Only leave footsteps.

Far away where we can build ourselves a home.
Is it all in my head?
And when we sail we'll fight for our breaths that will fade away.
Let's leave our life and live the death.
This had to be one of the creepiest finds I've found. Despite the fact the children had grown up and left home, the parents left all the baby stuff in this room. All setup like their baby was going to come back home. A stack of books piled high in the cupboard - once read to put them to sleep.
This room above a farmers barn last active in the 90s was littered with skeletons of dead chickens and locked from the outside which pointed towards the farmer leaving live animals here when the business shut down and never coming back. Never a nice thing to stumble upon, but there were far less regulations back then. Even the boxes outside the door were labelled 'if delayed in transit, will die'.
