Stunning abandoned locations around the world

All over the world there are buildings and structures that have long passed their sell-by-date but are still remarkable to look at. Abandoned and derelict sites can be found thoughout this planet, and many are considerably more intriguing and beautiful than when they were in use.

From neglected ships to dilapidated houses, we thought we would show you some of the most stunning abandoned places in the world. Join us as we look at the most rundown yet beautiful sites on earth...

SS Ayrfield, Australia
SS Ayrfield

Homebush Bay, located west of Sydney, is home to this abandoned steam collier which was last in use in the mid-20th century. Now this ship sits idly on the Parramatta River, with plant life growing on its deck, making it a truly wonderful sight to see.

Abandoned Mill, Italy
Abandoned Mill

Visitors planning a holiday in the Italian town of Sorrento you will find the Valley of the Mills. Once a thriving workplace, these mills have been abandoned since 1866, when the rise in humidity made the area unbearable to work in.  

Kolmanskop, Namibia

In the Namib Desert sits Kolmanskop, an eerie ghost town which is bound to send shivers down your spin. Surprisingly, many of the buildings in this abandoned town are still in good condition, making it a popular destination for keen photographers.

Holland Island, Maryland

This intriguing location in Maryland is actually an eroding island in the Chesapeake Bay of Dorchester County in the U.S.  Sadly, the last remaining house (pictured) fell into the bay in October 2010, taking with it the last remaining memory of the island.

The Remains of Pegasus, Antarctica

The remains of the ill-fated aircraft, Pegasus, can still be seen at Pegasus Field in Antarctica. The plane crashed in the snow on the 8th October 1970 but luckily nobody was injured in the accident.
