Why were these structures built and then left to crumble?


Abandoned Engineering travels the globe to reveal and explore numerous abandoned sites; forgotten fragments of incredible engineering feats, sprawling ghost towns, puzzling industrial complexes, and sinister remains from bloody conflicts. Each haunted shell tells its own unique story as to how and why it was built and what factors then came in to play that saw it neglected.


In this eighth series, intriguing locations include a remote fortification declared a sovereign nation, an iconic prison that saw a radical break-in, a party-palace ruined by global forces, and an entire neighborhood frozen in a still active no-man’s land. Within these decaying structures are the echoes of history - they speak of death and destruction, but also human ingenuity and endeavour. Now, each haunted shell is ready to be unmasked and tell its own unique story.
