Abandoned City: Montserrat



In 1995, an active volcano on the island of Montserrat destroyed the capital city of Plymouth and two thirds of the island's population had to flee. What is left behind is under constant threat of another explosion at any time, but it is also exquisitely beautiful to those of us who appreciate urban exploration.

  2. I love the phone booth shot. But I wonder if you can even walk around it. There are no real "close up" shots here

    1. From what I understand, they have allowed some passes on days when there is not a lot of activity but you have to sign waivers and such.
