When we are not too busy Greenjacking we like to unwind with a spot of Urban Exploration. This week we joined the rest Subterranean Tourist Board on a regular outing to the former Thorpe Marsh Power Station..

There’s something very satisfying about areas that have been reclaimed by Mother Nature – especially if they were areas that once reaped extensive ecological damage upon our earth…

Who are also a keen Guerilla Gardeners and we got to thinking that maybe we should start combining these two important, but fun, pastimes. Not on sites like Thorpe Marsh – anything that grows there is likely to be contaminated for years to come – but it would be nice to make use of abandoned gardens and give neglected buildings a bit of a lift with a nice new window box.
