A place or building that is derelict is empty and in a bad state of repair because it has not been used or lived in for a long time. Some of these abandoned and haunted places will creep you out a little, but if you are anything like us you will want to go and visit all of them anyway. They are guaranteed to bring out your inner explorer. Its hard to believe places like this are scattered all around the world. Haunting, serene and beautiful, each of these pictures tells a story and forms a narrative which gives us an insight into what would happen to our planet without our intervention.
