When a pair of explorers traveled to a rural area of England, they were heading there on a mission: to venture inside an abandoned building. The property they were seeking was no mere dilapidated shack, however, but a $13 million mansion that had once been owned by a member of Pink Floyd. And when the intrepid duo reached the home in question, they could probably never have guessed what they would ultimately find there.
Dan Dixon is an urban explorer from the United Kingdom. Also known as “Urbexing,” urban exploration is a trend whereby people investigate derelict buildings and areas. Dixon, for one, describes himself as having a “passion for history, architecture and decay.”
Now, in January 2017 this explorer started a YouTube channel called “Exploring with Fighters.” Dixon has since uploaded dozens of videos that see him visiting the likes of deserted houses, hotels, theme parks and factories. And over the course of a year and a half, the intrepid investigator has built up a following of over 97,000 subscribers, with his uploads having garnered nearly eight million views in total to date.
