UrBex in Telford: The Haygate

UrBex in Telford: The Haygate

Chris has been featured on Telford Live a number of times. Always respectful of peoples property and a fascinating visit at one of Telfords popular rock music venues before it closed recently.

“The Haygate was a pub in Telford that hosted live music, and was popular with metal heads, rockers, goths etc. It closed its doors for the last time roughly a month or two ago, when the owners allegedly decided to move abroad, and it’s apparently due to be demolished to make room for houses. I wasn’t a regular but I have enjoyed my fair share of nights here, so hearing that it was closing did shock and sadden me. But for someone who blogs about forbidden tourism, it’s scheduled demolition suddenly made it blog fodder, and I didn’t want all those fond memories to slip away without taking one last look. In we go.”

      Go to the police then.
      Seriously, if you have the evidence, proof that these places are getting trashed by him, and if the dates of the vandalism line up with the times and dates of the photo files, then why are you just typing on the internet about how you are “onto his antics”?
      You need to take your evidence to the police- Presumably you have footage of him doing it? You need to provide the date in which a place was vandalised, and those dates need to correspond with when a photo was taken, you need to provide the names of people in his “group”, and proof that they are doing it. You will also need to provide an explanation for how you always seem to know where Chris will be vandalising something, otherwise it’ll just look like A) You are stalking him or B) You’re vandalising places that Chris has blogged about in an attempt to frame him.
      You also need to take into consideration that if any of that is true, Chris could press charges for slander, harassment, and you could get charged for wasting police time. Keep in mind that Chris did post on his social media strong evidence that you have been stalking him, so out of the two of you, he is the only one providing evidence to back his allegations so far, whereas you just come across as a little obsessed.
      But hey, you claim to have the evidence, so get to the police. Chop Chop!

      Theres loads of places Chris has blogged about that haven’t been trashed, like the Indian restaurant in Shrewsbury. Maybe they only get trashed if Lord Lucan can figure out how to get in after 😉

      Lol Lord Lucan just bullies Chris and Chris just gets on with what he loves. Based on the screenshots of what Lord Lucan has said to Chris Schurke Lord Lucan wants some kind of credit for Shrewsbury From Where You Are Not. He just wants to ride on Chris Schurkes coat tails it seems. And when it doesnt go his way he just says Chris takes bad photos and runs away to cry victim.
      Heres the thing Lord Lucan. People dont love Chris for his photos. They love him because he’s inspiring. He talks openly about his struggles and how he overcomes them. He talks about his depression and how he beats it. He promotes charity on his blog. He even had his hair cut for charity. Chris Schurke helps people. You just wants to bully him.
      So say he’s a bad photographer all you want. Brag on Facebook about how you followed him home once. It doesnt change the fact that in all the ways that matter, morally and ethically Chris is a better man than you will ever be.
      Now shut up and die already you old buzzard.

    “Lord Lucan” aka Russ is just a bully. Chris Schurke speaks out often in his blog about mental health, and he promotes charities. His own hair was donated to become a wig for cancer. So really, “Lord Lucan” is just jealous, because Chris is 1000x a better man than he’ll ever be.

    “Lord Lucan” spent two years of his life spamming my blog and publically slandering me. I used the ad revenue from his visits to fund my passport renewal so that I can now explore abandoned places worldwide. Thanks Lord Lucan 😀
